Nice product placement...

So I'm watching TV last night and a commercial comes on for Plavix, a prescription drug, as a way to help cut down on arterial blockages, particularly when used in conjunction with aspirin and other cardiac drugs ("Ask your doctor about Plavix!!").

As anyone knows who's been awake in the last quarter-century, arterial blockages most often are the result of poor dietary choices (high fat/carbs, low fiber/veggies, etc.) and a lack of exercise.

The very next commercial? Get a Pizza Hut Pan Pizza for only 25 cents as part of a promotion to celebrate Pan Pizza's 25 year anniversary.

DOH! It almost makes me wonder if Plavix paid extra to be right in that spot.

It is nearly impossible to remove yourself from the bad diet most americans diluge themselves with. My peaceful drive from Dallas to Santa Fe, New Mexico is almost always a fat fest due to no choices on the open road.

PS I recommend the subway on the highway in Wichita Falls BTW. Sonic if you can't resist being bad.

I thought it was a bit of wishful thinking, but you could be right.

as a former, long time Pizza Hut Driver, i can honestly tell u, that they use the lowest quality of ingredients, and that the veggi "fuel" oil that they soak the pan crusts in, make them absolutely disgusting......

they come as rock hard frozen disks, that shatter, when u throw them across the parking lot, frisbee style.....

the store had nasty fingus growing on the walls behind the counters, and they NEVER would actually shut down, and clean up, they would just be open, every day, and it was nasty......
