We Really Do Have Too Much Free Time
Emily forwarded me the following article today:
Okay. As she stated, “This is the grand prize winner of a product extension gone
horribly wrong.” So wrong, so wrong.
A cheeseburger and fries, as a meal, fine. Why mess with a good thing? Why try to combine them? Why not leave well enough alone?
The testimonials in the article really don’t lend credence to the new product:
“And while the taste is not distinctly beef, biting into one does impart the lingering flavoring of processed cheese.” Lingering flavor? Of processed cheese? If there’s going to be a lingering flavor, it should be of something desirable. Not processed. Ugh. Perhaps most distressing, though, is the last sentence of the article, “We want beef in dessert if we can get it there.” So yuck.
