Specifically, we’re talking about very brief public service ad we just caught on the tube, in which Michelle Obama said our kids are too fat because they don’t get enough exercise and therefore should eat well and get their booties busy.
Not mentioned were the reasons kid are heavy and inert, the very medium of which she appeared, the digital screen [from tube to Tweets].
Nor did she mentioned that one of the reasons kids eat poorly is that their parents have been working longer hours and come home so exhausted that fast food’s the default option — the stuff so relentlessly promoted via the same medium on which Me. Obama appeared.
That’s it. Just a stray thought on a Wednesday night.
