Bonus creative points to the first celeb to submit a photo of Booty snacks displayed next to their booty.

Eff Ben Folds. I'm never eating Pirate's Booty again.

Not just SFW, but safe for snacking. (Also, David Cross!)

I will further say that this isn't so much a case of celebrity admiration so much as it is, uh, celebrity ambush. Very often the "celebrities" have no idea what you're doing when you shove a bag of Booty in their faces -- or, in the case of Ted Leo, are unwilling to wholeheartedly endorse products that don't conform to a vegan lifestyle.

The look on Mac from Superchunk's face doesn't begin to describe how disoriented he was.

On second, thought, yeah, I guess it does.

I try not to reward companies who publish fraudulent nutrition information.

But Ben Folds is the coolest.

So...unless I am reading this wrong, these "photographers" are just throwing bags of this stuff at people and getting them to pose?

Hardly a big endorsement of the prodcut then, right? I think I agree with billsaythis...very pepsiblue.

Yeah, their prodcut, that's right.

As one of these "photographers," I can say with all sincerity that I truly, truly appreciate the plug, a mere two and a half years after anybody was interested in this meme.

Honestly, it means a lot to me. You're all invited to come party with me and the J├Ąger triplets in the solid-gold Jacuzzi I've bought with my share of the, er, profits.

Sorry, didn't mean to sound like a bitch dayan. I am just a little confused is all. Do you work for Robert's? Or just a big fan, and wanted to do something goofy?
posted by Richat at 11:57 AM on September 22, 2004

Yeah, Dayan, I forget. Did we put the September check in the Benz or the Gulfstream?

I'd just like to mention that Trader Joes now sells a near-identical product in bigger bags for less money than Pirate's Booty.

No Veggie Booty knockoff yet, but I hope it will come.

you don't even wanna know how much I was paid to post this. I'll give you a hint though: a lot.

c'mon guys, lighten up. a buncha kids that like a goofily named snack decided to pay tribute on the web. a small community ensues. so far I haven't been able to find a store locator, banner ad, press release, product description, or even a link back to the manufacturer's web site. so take your pepsibluefilter and stick it in your booty!

I miss Kung Fu Grippe.

Ar, you missed the proper time for this post by a couple of days, matey!

I guess you have to give props to the company's sense of humor. In addition to Pirate's Booty and Veggie Booty and all the rest, they sell a snack called Girlfriend's Booty.

I guess that would make him tarrrdy, fenriq.

Pirate Booty is the most brilliant snack in the world, if only because it have rise to -

Fruity Booty - the most homoerotic snack in the world. Complete with leering pirate asking you to "Shiver me timber!"

(I've actually only tasted the original cheese kind - but someday I will be worthy of Fruity Booty. Spotted in Boston, Mass in 2001 - is it still around?)
