Monday Morning Mirth

And so it begins…

I’m only human.

I HAVE to eat. SO I have to go shopping.

And thus it happens.

THE ONSLAUGHT!

The millions of Products invading my space with their buyability because they are adorned with…

SHREK!

So far, I’ve succumbed to this lovely Ogre Antibacterial Liquid Hand Soap. The soap comes out of Shrek’s hand and smells Apple-y. I washed many times yesterday. It’s absolutely logical – if the Ogre can’t kill Germs, who can?!

Then, there were the chips~! I’m not even supposed to EAT chips. And there in my cart is a HUGE bag of Lay’s Wavy’s with the Donkey & Shrek on the bag.

Oh, did I mention the M&M’s?!

Beth tipped me off several weeks ago: “Shrek M&Ms – seriously, my daughter came home from a night at Grandma’s with a big bag of them. They’re Shrek-y colors and a bit bigger than the average M&M.

Thought you’d like to know – beth”

Right ON Beth! I’m there!

And what kind of friend would I be if I didn’t spead the JOY!?

BIG, GREEN MONEY MACHINE

“Based on the first film’s success, DreamWorks has licensed about 80 companies to make “Shrek” items from watches to skateboards, bed sheets to backpacks, and toothpaste to computer games.

Eight promotional partners include PepsiCo’s Frito-Lay unit, which is offering its Cheetos snack in a version that turns tongues green. Hewlett-Packard Co is selling “Shrek” computer products, and fast-food chain Burger King has “Shrek” collectibles.”

some Faves…

1. the Shrek Etch-a-Sketch: I could put this to good use in traffic jams on the Kennedy…

2. the Talking Donkey (only will get if he says: “I’m goona make waffles!”)

3. And the plush Beanie 7″ Donkey (and you all thought I was only in love with the Big Guy!)

4. Shrek 3 is in the works and will revolve around Shrek joining the Knights of the Round Table!
