One final note on this Wednesday… Oh, wait, that’s a Marketplace line. And speaking of that surprisingly entertaining public radio show, we heard an interesting tidbit on the podcast this morning:
You know how airlines have made it policy to starve you out on cross-country flights? And you know how strangers are always accosting you in the street with free samples of crap you don’t want, like diet Gatorade? Well how would you like it if those strangers boarded planes and offered you the free samples while in the air?
Apparently Kraft and JetBlue have decided to get together and find out. Kraft workers in white tuxedos will offer samples of low-fat cream cheese to travelers in coming weeks. It’s a toss-up around here whether that would maybe be kind of nice or if it would be the final straw and cause us to go into such a frenzy of annoyance that the evening news would later dub us the “Cream Cheese Killer”
