From the photo archives of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

For over a year, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has been digitizing old photos from its far-reaching library and putting them on a Tumblr called The Digs. [more inside]

Mmmmm, Nutella... Ewwww, Cheez Whiz...

Pro-Bono Promo In which artist Dori Pankowska puts product logo/names on walls, using the product itself. It's not graffiti, it's like free advertising with free samples! (Why hasn't anybody thought of this before?)

Teresa Heinz Kerry

Heinz Meanz Beanz: Is America ready for a sassy, intelligent, outspoken, wilful, foul-mouthed, irreverent, garrulous, domineering, flamboyant, freethinking and utterly charming First Lady?* Portugal certainly is - as Teresa Heinz Kerry, born Teresa Simoes Ferreira, is Portuguese and it would be nice to have a secret agent such a close ally in the White House. But there's also a lot of hate about. Do most American voters really take candidates' wives, husbands or partners into account? *Heh. The "utterly charming" was added at the last minute when I realized that all these adjectives could apply to Hilary Clinton.

Funky Fries Fail Fantastically

Chocolate, Blue 'Funky Fries' pulled from shelves The notorious freedom french fries with the flavors of chocolate, cinnamon and blue-colored variety have been pulled by Heinz due to poor sales and overall revulsion by consumers around the nation (especially here at MeFi). Can you think of other such horrific failed foods that were disgusting from the start?

Chocolate french fries?

Chocolate french fries? I thought Heinz might have gone too far with green ketchup, but Cocoa Crispers, "brown chocolate fries designed for kids with a sweet tooth" really make my stomach turn. Also announced: Crunchy Rings - basically Tater Tots with a hole in the middle. Yum.

I'm not sure I want my ketchup "funky".

I'm not sure I want my ketchup "funky". Heinz announces "funky purple" ketchup, because their green ketchup was so successful.

Heinz makes green ketchup.

Heinz makes green ketchup. Green ketchup? According to a Heinz representative, "Green is going to be a shocker for a lot of adults, but kids don't have those hangups". The article also says, "company executives are hoping its unexpected colour and plastic bottle - which squirts a stream so thin kids can draw with it - will attract fans."

I see a few problems here (after the novelty wears off):
1) It's supposed to be the color of spinach - I know a few kids who would have a problem with anything spinach-colored.
2) If kids are meant to use it to squirt and draw things, parents will have a little something to say about that.

So, what's next, blue salsa? Pink mustard? Green mayo?
