Mr. Food is on TV, but not in my metropolitan area, so I’d never made his acquaintance until recently. His (its? their?) trademarked slogan is “OOH IT’S SO GOOD!!” As in “The Amish people haven’t lost sight of those core family dinner values that result in food filled with that ‘OOH IT’S SO GOOD!!®’”
Got leftovers? Stock up on Mr. Lid containers with attached—duh!—lids.
“Mr.” name—check. Cute/weird mascot—check. But wait, there’s more: a catchy jingle at the end of the video!
In the unlikely event that you have trouble opening Mr. Lid, get yourself Mr. 7 Hands, “a screwdriver replacement” and so much more.
Too bad they didn’t name it “Mr. Screw.”
Then there’s Mr. Tire, which has 800 stores in 19 states (but none in California). The company is famous for its trompe l’oeil truck photos. Heads up!
Happy Independence Day to my USian readers! I’ll be back later in the week.
