The Mind Reels in Horror

Ok, so according to the official corporate website, here is the current lineup:
  • Hamburger Helper
  • Chicken Helper
  • Tuna Helper

Ok, good. I can see a pattern here. They help some mundane ingredient. Very nice.

So explain "Asian Helper", would you? I had to double check to make sure on that one, as there are certainly a lot of asian things in the world (even if my brain first latched on to asian people)

How about "Wholesome Helper"? I don't know which is worse, the implication that the rest of their product line can not claim wholesomeness, or that I can imagine my local asian grocer having a product like "Virtuous Helper"

"Microwave Singles"? As if online dating services didn't have enough stigma already.

We should put various Asian things that aren't even food items into pots and try to cook them with the "Asian Helper". Afterwards, we can write in to complain to their company. Sure, we'll look like idiots, but maybe they'll feel stupid for naming it that. LOL

All of my previously whorish friends love the wholesome helper right before court usually.
