QFC King deposed?

The QFC King mascot

This ad from a Dec. 1963 “Prudence Penny” insert in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer
indicates that this is the first Christmas for the little QFC king.

For all I know, it may have been his last. Perhaps his oddly trimmed mustache did not play well among the upper middle class housewives that shopped there. Along the way, QFC took over smaller chains, then in turn they were acquired by Kroger’s. I guess they lost the quirky charm along the way. I think someone in our family still has one of the 98 cent fruitcakes featured in this circular.

Fun facts to know and tell

There is something wrong with this, but I can’t quite put my finger on it. Apparently pigs used to brush their teeth with their own hair? The “photomicrographs” make me want a hog bristle toothbrush, it looks like it would get between teeth better than rounded plastic bristles.

Ma pig is just set in her ways.

Cereal Mascots on the prowl

I was having a bowl of Golden Grahams, reading the back of the cereal box (Having forgotten to bring my cellphone downstairs); I was momentarily confused by this horrifying mish-mash of puzzles and weird graphics.

Since when does the Trix rabbit have a driver’s license? He’s already veering into oncoming traffic. I got such a headache from looking at it, and couldn’t download the blippy app or whatever – having left the cellphone upstairs.

WHIMSICAL OTTER WEARS BASEBALL CAP BACKWARDS

I was perusing the local free newspaper a while back and was stopped in my tracks by this enticing coupon. Haggen’s is a little upscale for our budget, but this $5 off $25 coupon should get us and many of the other riff-raff in the door. We’ll probably buy some gourmet mustard, or hot dogs infused with Parmesan cheese.

Their mascot looks like something straight out of a Simpson’s or even Family Guy. Like a Freshman in high school, he’s trying way too hard to be cool, and it’s sort of backfiring on him. I think it’s the backwards hat that did him in. At least his pants aren’t sagging.

Is Splash the Otter going to be at this event? I would go just to see some poor guy in the parking lot, sporting an Otter costume.

BTW, don’t they realize that Otters are part of the weasel family? Would you buy groceries from a weasel?

Number 4 will shock you!

NeverEatThisThis clickbait ad says that if I quit eating a certain four foods that my belly fat will just melt away. Apparently one of the items is a banana that is so large that I would not be able to get a good grip on it.
