The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Uh-oh, SpaghettiOs

Once France was accepted as a member of the Axis of Weasels and otherwise-rational people started asking for "Freedom Fries", it was perhaps inevitable that the Campbell Soup Company would put the 117-year-old "Franco-American" brand name out of its misery.

Then again, I always preferred Chef Boy-Ar-Dee (who was an Italian, anyway).

The Chef is better for most things Canbo Italiano, but when you need spaghetti-O's (with FRANKS, naturally), you have to go with Franco.. Except now it's probably going to be as bland and white bread as the name Campbell's. Campbell's Spaghetti-O's just doesn't sound right. In fact, it sounds about as wrong as Hillary For President, or McDonald's Healthy Menu.

Terkish Payne, what next? Sugar-Free Fluff?
