THE TRIX CONSPIRACY
We ask our children everyday, not to hate. To treat their fellow man as an equal. Yet, the messages we send
them only reinforce the opposite. Destroy those who are different, and don't let them have what you have. Nowhere is this more glaring than the television commercials
for Trix commercials.
"Hey! Pirates aren't supposed to eat CAP'N CRUNCH!"
"Cookie Crook, your social class is too low for COOKIE CRISP!"
"Leggo My EGGO!"
"YOU CAN'T EAT HONEYCOMBS UNLESS YOU'RE A MEMBER OF THE HONEYCOMB HIDEOUT!" (I always thought that one was confusing, the slogan would go, "Come to the Honeycomb Hideout", but they'd always turn folks away once they got there! Even Andre The Giant!)
"HEY YOU STUPID LEPRECHAUN, NO LUCKY CHARMS FOR THE IRISH!!!"
YES! I WANT THE RABBIT TO GET HIS TRIX!
It was a shining moment for our country because the kids overwhelmingly voted for the Rabbit. They even had
a new commercial to commemorate the event. The Rabbit heard the results, and sat there teary-eyed, not knowing what he said. Why this was like Mandela getting freed from
prison, The Berlin Wall coming down, the fall of The Soviet Union. He ate the bowl lovingly and quickly, overcome with joy. With a smile born of years of tolerance and
servitude, he raised his spoon proudly, and asked for another bowl!
It was such a cruel and inhuman joke. Just like we promised the Indians their own land. Just like we promised 40 Acres and a mule to the America's blacks. Taken right back!
Why are we afraid to eat at the same table as The Rabbit?
