5519: The Tipping (Scales) Point.
Childish remarks in a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• Figures show child obesity is “leveling off” in the U.S. Which probably only means that kids could not possibly get any fatter than they are right now.
• Kool-Aid is hyping its lower-sugar versions. A company executive declared, “We’re firmly committed to providing moms and kids with products that combine better-for-you beverage options to help support a healthier lifestyle.” The better-for-you beverage option would simply involve drinking water straight.
• Six Flags is cutting back admission prices to lure people during the summer months. Some parks are dropping the entrance fees by up to $10. However, a pitcher of Kool-Aid and slice of pizza from the dining area will still set you back about $85.
• At the R. Kelly child pornography trial, another person—a former personal assistant to Kelly—identified the participants in the infamous video as being the recording artist and alleged female victim. Remember, Kelly’s defense is the video figures are somebody else. You’d think the real couple would have surfaced by now. Maybe they’re hanging with Nicole Brown Simpson’s real killers.
