Thats not what makes the results fake.

If you've never had something before and try two kinds you know what tastes better to you. You dont need someone to teach you what makes it good.

It doesn't matter if the results are real or fake, the point is they are irrelevant either way.

I agree!

I haven't been watching much television lately, so I haven't seen the commercial. Is it on you tube?

It's not exploitation. It's a commercial. Some people need to lighten up. What is politically correct anymore, anyway?

Smiling, expressing humour and giving your honest opinion about someone or something all seem to be deemed politically incorrect these days. Pretty much anything these days will get someone somewhere screaming about the lack of PCness.

Love the post? Why not buy the T-shirt!

They show one here where a string of them have taken a bite of each and are pointing to the one they liked. It's pretty funny because all of them have this confused look like "I guess I have to pick one so here goes"!! None of them look like they actually enjoy it or even liked either in any way...maybe there is a little justice after all.

I noticed that too.
