Exciting New Product

It's come to this in America: we are so desperate for new products to get consumers to buy, buy, and buy that we have gone off the deep end.

The hot new product from Pepperidge Farms? Bent cookies.

They're called "Whims Crispy Waves", but that's not what they really are. They're just a bent cookie.

Conversation overheard at Pepperidge Farms:
"People aren't buying our cookies anymore. We need to go guerilla and think outside the box."
"Well, we could bend them."
"Freaking genius!"

Six months later:
"Are they bent yet?"
"Um, yes they are."
"Launch the multi-million dollar advertising campaign!"
