A scarf that will make you hungry

News

As many Blazers and Beck fans know, Glenn has been talking a lot about Edward Bernays lately, the father of modern propaganda. As an example, Glenn's pointed out that because of one of Bernays's successful campaigns, we eat bacon and eggs for breakfast.

So imagine my surprise when I logged on to Reddit this evening and found that Bernays had hijacked this young man's mom and was using her to manipulate the minds of this seemingly healthy-looking American (and many other Americans) into eating more and more bacon and eggs. It's titled simply, "Hey Reddit, check out the scarf my mom made for me! Love you mom!":

It is currently being considered by the GOP as the poster for the campaign against Michelle Obama's school lunch bill.

Running a close second is a picture of the matching "egg and toast" gloves (pointed out by a Reddit commenter):

The pork and eggs lobby can thank Bernays for another successful campaign. And in case you were wondering if you can get your own piece of bacon and eggs outerwear, you can.
