I made Betty tea and a paratha for breakfast. I asked if she wanted jam on it.
Which prompted her to say: "You know which jam is really not that good?"
"Smucker's. It's very gelatinous."
"And they say, 'With a name like Smucker's, it has to be good.' So I thought it would be. And it's not! Why would they say that?"
I love the sweet naivety of that question: why would they say that?ReplyDelete
Don't those big bad advertisers know that its wrong to lie?
Smuckers is a very unfortunate name. I would not trust anything (or anyone for that matter!) called smuckers!ReplyDelete
Because they're smucks?ReplyDelete
Sweet Betty :) Too funny!ReplyDelete
My mom was friends with part of the Smuckers family. I remember totally not getting the slogan as a child. Big, gelatinous companies should run their slogans by children.ReplyDelete
Keenie Beanie - I know. Very sweet! She's still sick and a little groggy, and I heard her repeating the slogan as I walked towards the kitchen.ReplyDelete
Miranda - I love you, I do. It is an unfortunate name! Not to be trusted!
lacochran's evil twin - Hahahahaha!
HKW - :) She is sweet!
Susan - I never gave it a drop of thought until yesterday! They totally should.
gelatinous....a word I am going to try and work in to a conversation in the next few days...ReplyDelete
Poor Betty, not feeling well and being let down by Smuckers. Bummer.
