Our friend Sonic the Hedgehog has been on a strange endorsement streak lately: yams, pickles, and even President Obama; I don’t know if the guy’s just hard up for the cash or just feeling blowback from the days when he told us more social messages, such as “saying no to racism.” Indeed, Sonic used to go on with his own public service messages, including smoking:
What’s baffling, though, is the recent discovery by forums member ::CMG (UTOPIA):: of Sonic candy cigarettes. I suppose he’s sticking to his original message of not smoking if they can’t be smoked, right? At least they are tasty 100%.
People see “100%” and it’s automatically good
THAT’S NO GOOD!
I’d like to point out that several parts of the world have banned Candy Cigarettes under the assumption that they lead to smoking. Here’s the irony: We still have pixie sticks. “Now son, don’t smoke, but you can do powder through a straw.”
Admittedly, if we’re going to pair Sonic with an illicit drug, cocaine would be a better choice than cigarettes.
I find this so funny I can’t laugh, but rather sit here like an idiot giggling.
Mmm… I’ve seen a Spider-Man version of this!
And… hem… it’s for KIDS?
Solid gold…pure Saturday cartoon gold…now where rrrrrrobotnik?
I laughed so hard at this that my chair tipped over and it broke. Darn.
Drugs and smoking are bad. Remember that.
“New Tasty 100%”
It is a nice alternative to the real cigarette. But just make sure you bush your teeth afterward. We don’t have to have plenty of cavities!
Kids, don’t believe what you saw. This is one of Doc Buttnik’s schemes to lead you astray! Sonic Says!
