Aha! and Huh? (No.4)

It seems like, unfortunately, it is always easier to find some Huh?-facts rather than some happy Aha!-facts.

This is from a few months ago, when I visited my sister in Manhattan. An "mini-urban-organic market" just sitting there all cute and healthy at the stop for the ferry for Ellis Island. Even in the winter in New York you can get fresh produce. In this case apples, jam, and honey. And cheap too, way cool!

This is an adertisement and marketing strategy at Kentucky Fried Chicken. First off, I have to say that I hate these types of ads, trying to guilt you into buying their crap, under the guise of helping the poor/needy/sick, etc. Like KFC can't just support the cause or make a donation.
But this one is particularly dumb.

Buy a gigantic sugary soda and help support diabetes research. And yes, in this case, they are researching the cause and trying to find a cure for Type 1 diabetes, not Type 2. Type 1 is technically not directly linked to eating habits, but come on, really?
