chokes on weeties

This idiotic ad campaign for Kellogg’s Sustain™ has been around for a while now.

It’s been very effective because I’m completely persuaded not to buy the shit, if only to discourage media ‘professionals’ from producing any more of such drivel.

Little wonder the GFC, when there’s an army of people doing this kind of nonsense who could otherwise be employed in productive work.

Er... speaking of which, I’ve got some things to do...

Until now I didn't even know why I have never purchased Kellogg’s Sustain™. Thank you for pointing out my reasons. My decision making had a sound basis all along!

This is much like the Commonwealth Bank adverts, isn't it, to the extent that no one gets it?

Possibly it's aimed at those who think they ought to get it. The none-too-subtle suggestion, that you're a lifelong LOSER if you don't buy the product, may get a few in. For most I suspect it would produce a kind of reverse 'Gruen transfer'. If there's such a thing...

Ah, well there you go, because I'm quite sure I would feel like a desperate loser with a big "L" on my forehead if I bought Kellogg’s Sustain™.

Perhaps they're really trying to make me buy Kellogg’s Coco Pops™.

Speaking as an official nobody I would like it noted that the Obodie clan have been deeply offended.

Anyway the only cereal worth eating is weetbix, you'll probably find the cardboard pack containing most cereals is far more nutritous than the crap inside.

PS Unofficial Somebodies are up em selves - humpppppphhhhhh!

Along with baked beans, weetbix are nature's wonder food. Unfortunately the two have somewhat similar effects as regards bodily methane production. But that's just too bad.

The Somebody/Nobody gradient is problematic. I find myself lying awake at night worrying over where I fit in to this schema.

And what of Official Somebodies and Unofficial Nobodies, where do they sit in the Kellogg's Sustain™ taxonomy?

I really think the Kellogg people ought to sit down and have a good think about all this. Especially about their exposure to legal liability with regard to all the pissed off Official Nobodies who will be aggrieved at being effectively reduced to second-class citizens.

The Kellogg legal department must surely be having kittens.

And think of all the Official Nobodies who buy this product only to remain Official Nobodies... I can see a class action in the offing!!

Sad isn't Jacob. But rest assured Officicial Nobodies would never buy that product.

PS - you can put sardines on the list as well, good tucker.
