"Not love," John said. "Dong. Who put the dong in the rama-lama ding dong?"

In addition to these disgustingly cute messages, we also have "Nutrition Facts," a chart giving us serving size, calories, total fat, saturated fat, trans fat, cholesterol, sodium, potassium, total carbohydrate, dietary fiber, sugars, protein, vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, iron. These charts are now printed on every can, every package of food, apparently with the mistaken belief that we are unable to figure out what type of food we are eating--whether a food is sweet, and can't be trusted to know that fruit is not a high protein food. Aren't prunes famous for fiber? What might be helpful to know is the amount of insecticide residue.
