There is something truly absurd about watching US presidential candidates talk about how we’re all waiting to see what happens on season two of Army Wives…

I shook my fist alongside Catherine when she blogged about the Yogurt Wars. However, I have my own yogurt scandal: the conspiracy to deny me fatty yogurt. (I spurn you Liberté, for denying me yogurt that is both organic AND full-fat!!) So I loved this video poking fun at the bananas notion that all a gal needs is her pilates mat and (fat-free) yogurt to weather the trials and tribulations of life…

I’m pretty sure probiotics do good things for your digestion. Prebiotics too (prebiotics are the new probiotics, after all). But man do I dislike being “challenged” by my food.
It must be exhausting to keep track of what all your foods are telling you to do. Only 4 days left to go on your dare with Metamucil. Wearing a red dress to show Becel you care about women’s heart health.*
And now keeping track of where you are in your “30-day challenge” from any one of three (or more) different yogurt companies. Challenges that go along with what I’m less than affectionately calling “The Yogurt Wars”.
You know the brands — Yoptimal Immuni+ vs Astro BioBest Vitalite vs Danone Activia.
Where did these all come from? And why are they suddenly all over my tv? How did these stupid candy yogurts become the next big health and weightloss food, targeted at women?
Yoptimal has a tiny hovering man who holds your umbrella for you. I think Danone is the one where you dance around in a beige outfit. BioBest Vitalite makes yellow swirl around your midriff while your friend looks on in envy.
(And can we take a minute to ask why this beeyotch doesn’t offer her friend any? “What is that?” Obviously she’s hungry you nitwit. You both just got back from the gym, toss her a yogurt for pity’s sake…)
