I went to Mexico last winter. The big brand of snack cakes down there is "BIMBO" (Like Hostess to us) BIMBO delivery trucks running around, billboards, etc. I just thought the name was funny, and they have a Pillsbury Doughbiy/Stay-puff Marhmallow Man character, too.

I go into the gas station this week, and what do I see? A big new rack of BIMBO snacky cakes.

Look out for the Frito Bandito





Frito Bandito, The - Stereotypical Mexican bandit (voice of Mel Blanc) with a large brim hat, pot belly and slurred English accent seen in a number of Frito Lay Corn Chip commercials in the late 1960s. In 1969, under pressure from the Mexican Anti-Defamation Committee, who claimed the Frito Bandito character's "sneaky thief" image was damaging to the Mexican-American culture, the executives at Frito Lay were forced to revaluate the Frito Bandito campaign. Soon after, all the Bandito commercials were pulled off the air. A Frito Lay survey, however, indicated that nearly ninety percent of the Hispanic viewing public liked the character (8% did not).

Sounds about right. The squeaky wheel gets the grease.

That was the beginning of the PC touchy-feelie movement.
