One Man’s Propaganda is Another Man’s PSA

Did any of you watch the Cartoon Network Hall of Games Awards with your kids or grandkids last week? If not, don’t feel guilty. Neither did anyone else. Even though Lady M was on, promoting our “No Child’s Fat Behind” program. She just wanted to tell kids to eat their veggies, preferably organic, because their parents aren’t informed enough (yet) to tell them themselves.

According to Granny Jan, it looks like this “all-veggies-all-the-time” initiative is going to require a bit more efforting:

Butt don’t worry, it’s SEIU’s our number one priority.

It’s funny,though, when a cartoon caricature is hawking something it’s considered propaganda:



Hi! I’m Ronald, and I’m evil! Would you like fries with that?





Butt when Lady M does it, backed by the full faith and credit of the federal government, it’s a PSA.

Hi-iiii! I’m Michelle. I’m good. And wise. And really, really cool. So eat your damn carrots!!!





I’ve got to run now, we’ve got another Big White Awards show this afternoon! It’s the 2010 National Medal of Arts and National Humanities Medal. You’re not going to want to miss this one! Meryl Streep is one of our winners this year! I’m giddy with anticipation.

In the meantime, why don’t you all run out and grab some lunch. Just be sure to choose wisely, there will be consequences!
