This Is Just Silly

Earlier this evening I went to make a bag of popcorn in the microwave when I noticed something rather silly on the box: it stated that this popcorn was made from whole grain corn. I laughed my ass off. Seriously, if it wasn't whole grain corn, then it wouldn't pop now, would it? The sad part is that I'm sure this marketing has worked on someone. I can just picture it: where's the Jiffy Pop brand? Wait a minute, the Target Market Pantry brand is made from whole grain corn! Screw Jiffy Pop -- I'm going with Market Pantry!



Update, 11:25 PM: Just to be clear, I rechecked the box (something I should have done before writing this post), and it plainly states "made with 100% whole grain popcorn." I want to shake the hand of the marketing genius who suggested putting that on the box, and then smack him upside the head.
