#43 Quick & Easy

Third piece for my Adver­tis­ing Slo­gan series.
No sto­ry. This list says it all, Quick & Easy:

  • Frozen waf­fles
  • Instant oat­meal
  • Dish­wash­ers
  • Microwaves
  • Fla­vor Straws (remem­ber those?)
  • Big Macs
  • Instant cof­fee
  • Copy & paste
  • Remote con­trols
  • Pow­er windows
  • Voice-​activated controls
  • Ice­mak­ers
  • Robot vac­u­um cleaners
  • Pet feed­ers
  • Sprin­klers
  • Audio books
  • Auto-​pilot
  • Home study courses
  • Cliff notes
  • Mechan­i­cal pencils

and of course the ulti­mate Quick & Easy prod­uct of them all, to this day one of my favorite treats, espe­cial­ly when the burnt peas spill over into the plas­ter of paris mashed pota­toes which are some­how mixed with the slimy gravy:

  • TV din­ners

Pro­duc­tion notes:
34 minutes



No sto­ry this time – kept it quick & easy.
(I might even have a TV din­ner for breakfast.)

Enjoy & share…

  1. I love your TV din­ner obser­va­tions! I agree and I still love them as well! I also have a fond­ness for Trad­er Joe’s Instant Gar­lic Mashed Potatoes…definitely Quick & Easy (& Tasty, too!)

    1. They’re not the same as when they were in alu­minum trays and you cooked them in the oven so cer­tain parts got good and crispy (like the peas). And then when they added that real­ly extrav­a­gant dessert in the 1 inch by 1 inch par­ti­tion in the mid­dle, that added a whole new taste sen­sa­tion when the apple cob­bler mixed with the cheese enchi­la­da. Of course, the set­ting was­n’t com­plete with­out the TV din­ner tray, those wob­bly met­al things. But that was part of the fun.

      Oh yes, and the TV.

    1. Great list!
      I just nuked some pop­corn a few days ago so how did I miss that one?
      As for ATMs, I’ve been broke for so long I just com­plete­ly for­got about those things.
      And the Clap­per? That thing that blew a fuse when I used it for a Christ­mas tree that had about 3000 lights on it? Too quick, too easy. One clap and Christ­mas went dark.
