TFS headquarters is stricken with a viral infection that has not only debilitated your humble editor, but infiltrated critical infrastructure at the heart of this site's operations (in other words, I have a tremendously sore throat).

During a brief attempt at reading all the email that's piled up over the last several days while incapacitated, I came across one message stood out from the rest --  a PR pitch for what might be one of the most absurd food marketing campaigns ever launched: Wishbone and I Can't Believe It's Not Butter's reinvention of HBO's "Sex and the City" as "Sprays in the City":

The fridge is full of love and adventure in “Sprays in the City,” a fresh, new animated romantic comedy, starring an all-star celebrity cast including Extra‘s Mark McGrath [above], Project Runway star Tim Gunn, and Fabio. The webisodes follow the adventures of two gorgeous city sprays.  Spraychel, the captivating I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!®’s spray, and Spritzy, the feisty Wish-Bone® Salad Spritzers® Dressing.

And so, I leave you with the following advertainment until my return:
