I look at the envelope for Simplicity 8721 and my first thought is, "No one should have given these childen sweetened cola." Is it just me, or do they seem a little hyper?
Then I saw this awesome vintage ad promoting the importance of sugar to a child's diet. (It originally appeared in Time Magazine in 1966; I spotted it here.) Who knew sugar was promoted as part of a healthy diet? So Blue to the left there isn't spazzing out -- she's doing the Watusi!
As for the phrase "like a turtle needs a seatbelt"? I need to find a way to work that into my everyday language immediately. "Honey, I need this argument like a turtle needs a seatbelt." "Officer, I need this ticket like a turtle needs a seatbelt." Handy for so many situations!
