Hot Pockets!

The first time I visited the States, in 1993, Beavis & Butthead were in the ascendant, and followed me back to the UK that Christmas. I returned to the US in January, and this time Ren & Stimpy popped up on BBC2 in the UK. I don’t mind those pieces of popular American culture too much (well OK, I wasn’t much of a B&B fan to be honest, but Ren and co. were great!), so fair enough.

But the latest is too much: I just saw a TV ad for… Hot Pockets.
