It's actually hard for me to boycot big companies these days...

Remember the whole Michael Phelps thing, where Kellogg dropped his mug from Wheaties because he got photographed smoking pot? You know how everybody went all gonzo on boycotting Kellogg for dropping a man for a "victimless crime"? Well, I kinda wanted to counter-boycott them by eating more Kellogg products, just because I know that if Michael Phelps had been caught doing a variety of alternative things that might annoy other people, even if they were not presently illegal, that he'd still get dropped.

The problem is, I don't actually eat anything that Kellogg makes. I looked and there's nothing that I'd be willing to eat on principle, either.

I got a Gevalia spam recently, too. Kraft has gotten themselves in trouble in the past, but apparently we're now at the point where a lame brand can spam with impunity and get away with it. So I thought about boycotting them, but they make several of the last remaining processed foods I actually like. Which is pretty much Jello-O and Mac'n'Cheez.
