Actually, no -

I've always wanted to hear my voice ripping out of a massive, hovering cloud layer and punctuated by ethereal golden rays of light that illuminate a dry field in which my voice descends like a Greek Chorus only to say, "And remember to pick up some beer!"

I made a foodagram of a talking bag of french fries in the basement to tell my boyfriend I love him.

He thinks it's the most awesome thing ever.

Which is why I love him.

So, it took a little bit of digging to figure out what was actually going on here. Here's the background, in handy press release form:

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 26, 2012) - Initiated by the Toronto Education Workers and the Toronto District School Board, the My Food My Way campaign strives to engage students on the subject of nutrition.
Now, as a way of reaching out to those kids aged 13-17, the campaign has developed an interactive web application called Foodagram that allows users to record and share puppet video messages.
"One of the ways that My Food My Way differs from other student nutritional campaigns is its philosophy of engage first, educate second," says John Weatherup, President of the Toronto Education Workers.
The app works like this: you choose a food puppet, record your voice through your computer's microphone, and then presto: the puppet says whatever you want in a video clip. The resulting messages can be sent via email or shared on Facebook and Twitter.
The cast of puppet characters includes a slice of pizza named Papa Roni, a milkshake named Molly Moo, and a hamburger named Pattie.
"Foodagram as an experience is one we think will resonate loudly with students; inviting them to learn about nutrition in a non-traditional way," says Ahmad Ktaech, the managing director of the marketing firm behind the campaign.
Marvin Greenberg, the campaign's chair, stresses the importance of this engagement: "By using fun and innovative technology, we can develop the relationship with students so that a discussion on healthy eating can begin".

I always wanted to be inside of the bizarre world of Wacky Deli inside of the bizarre world of Rocco's Modern Life, and this brings me one step closer to that dream.

PS: Plus a gram or so.

Believe it or not, this measures up exactly to my understanding of how my voice must appear on the internet.
