They’re Jonesin’

I wish I had a taste for the stuff

it would make life go down so much easier

          Ohhhhh yea!

That tasty combination of

Sugary Appeal

Artificial Character

and Fake Affect

Yellow Dye Five Anyone?


Despite the carcinogenic risk of course.

But pay no mind to all of that.

Watch here —

the jolly little man

with the painted-on smile,

and promises of Good for You.

          Sooooo good for you.

Step right up now, don’t be shy

there’s plenty to go around.

          Ohhhhh yea!
