Chrisco to the rescue......

Darlene and I have spent the last week or so trying to empty our cupboards by eating all the old, stale, expired food in our cupboards before the Chrisco guy comes to deliver our yearly hamper of food. We would have felt bad if we had to throw anything out, but we had to make room for all that great food that's being delivered. We ate the cheese soup and baking soda and stale crackers and all the other things that have been sitting around for months.

I'm kidding of course. That Chrisco ad is incredible - it portrays the most surreal and bizarre reality. The family is painted like folks who just never quite get any of the groceries they like. It's as if the local grocery stores they're stuck with only stock the most awful stuff.

"It's cool having this much food in the house", says the boy in the ad. What? They've never had full cupboards before? This has got to be the stupidest commercial ever. People getting excited about having their pantry filled with food.
