I love the Granola Bars, one also. The way that little girl says 'My dad cries' is just hysterical. My other favorite is a commercial I only saw once or twice a few years ago. There was a father talking to his son, explaining that his son was going to have to quit school and get a job to help support the family. The little boy says - 'But I don't even know how to read', to which the father replies 'I wouldn't let that slip in a job interview'. OK, probably doesn't sound funny, but it was. I think it was an ad for some financial planning services.
When you start to cook, as when you begin to live, you think that the point is to improve the technique until you end up with something perfect, and that the reason you haven’t been able to break the cycle of desire and disillusion is that you haven’t yet mastered the rules. Then you grow up, and you learn that that’s the game.
