A Zac Efron Avocado?

Would you eat a Hannah Montana banana? How about an avocado with Zac Efron’s pretty face stamped on the front? Disney thinks you’re hungry for High School Musical so they’ve teamed up with fruit and veggie producers to develop Disney Garden—a line of nutritious snacks endorsed by your favorite Disney characters.

Mickey Mouse Chicken Nuggets?

Mickey Mouse and friends used to show up on cereal boxes and fast-food wrappers, but since childhood obesity has become a problem, Disney wants to steer away from junk food and align itself with healthier foods. Their contract with McDonald’s ended in 2006 and since then Disney has been working hard to change kids’ minds about what tastes good. It all started with stickers on fruit and veggies—now you can buy more than 250 different products including Mickey Mouse-endorsed eggs, each individually-stamped and bearing the face of a different smiling Disney character. And soon they’ll be whole-wheat breaded Mickey Mouse-shaped chicken nuggets at Costco!

The only people who might have some problems with the idea are parents. It’s not hard to say no when a kid wants a sugary cereal, but telling your kids they can’t have a bag of nutritious apples is definitely tough. Oh well, at least they’re eating right!

That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.'V.P.S.?'Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.'But I like the inconveniences.'We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.'But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.'In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence.I claim them all,' said the Savage at last.Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”  I freaking LOVE Brave New World! It's one of the best books I've ever read, and that conversation between the Controller and John is my favorite part  [s:sm3/1jw1]
