6 Edible Anthropomorphic Icons
Food, come alive! Do we eat them, or listen to what they have to say? You decide.
1) Mayor McCheese
A mayor with a delectable cheeseburger for a head, Mayor McCheese's election was based solely on his cholesterol content. He now has his own Facebook page , complete with over 2,000 "likes." Tight polyester pants and Mayor McCheese - the two most influential things to emerge from the 70's.
Is it a banana? Is it an octopus? Why is it sitting on a pile of pancakes? Why does it equally freak us out and make us hungry? Can we have one for a pet?
3) Frosted Mini Wheats
These cute little buggers have eight layers and some kickin' quiz skills. If only we'd had some of our breakfast cereal come alive and help us study for tests in elementary school, we might not have repeated the 3rd grade, or ever eaten cereal again.
At least these commercials poke fun out of the edible nature of their rotund spokescandies. These giant, mutated chocolate-shelled confections are constantly evading snack time as they wittily banter and charm their way out of dying a slow, painful death. Gives new meaning to the "death by chocolate" phrase, or more appropriately, "death as chocolate."
5) Mr. Banana Grabber
For all you Arrested Development fans, this quote from Michael Bluth sums up the entire idea, or lack of idea behind the wreckless banana grabbing promotion to brand the famous Bluth Banana Stand. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Mr-Bananagrabber/98821305919
Michael Bluth: "I guess it would just be a guy who, you know, grabs bananas and runs. Or a banana that grabs things. I don't know. Why would a banana grab another banana? I mean those are the kind of questions I don't want to answer."
6) Pizza the Hut
Jabba the Hutt was a disgusting blob that enslaved Princess Leah and kept Han Solo's carbonite frozen body as a souvenir in the all time classic, Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. How could that ever be improved upon? Make him pizza. Oh, Mel Brooks, you did indeed strike comic gold in Spaceballs.
