Idea for a Wacky Packages entry
« on: January 24, 2020, 07:13:24 AM »
Here's an idea for a Wacky Packages entry possibly for a 2020 series (excluding Old School): With the CORONOVIRUS scare in China currently, how about a Wacky Package take on Corn Nuts calling it "CORONO NUTS"? Or a Wacky Packages take on Kellogg's Corn Flakes calling it "CORONO FLAKES"?

Wow... probably too soon.

(...although "Preparation H2N1" is probably OK)

Man, someone is totally going to think we're horrible for these if they don't understand the spirit of Wackys.  But it does beg the question why the word "Flu" didn't find its way into the 1-16 Wacky titles.  Could have been yucky fun:

Flu-Berry
Kung Flu
Flu Finish
Winnie the Flu
Flu Bee Honey" (that one would be fun to draw filling up under a nostril)
The Flu Zoo Review  "...with Bug and Phlemy-Joe ... every day's a different disease!"

Besides all these posts above, the 2020 series should also cover spoofs of the blind box fad toys...

Painblow Surprise (Rainbow Surprise)
No! No! No! Surprise (Na! Na! Na! Surprise)
M.Y.O.B. Surprise (L.O.L. Surprise) (Sorry, out of ideas for this spoof)
Sikmi Pops (Pikmi Pops)
Shopsins (Shopkins)

I've gotta say, I hope we don't see a series like that.  Can't see myself buying those.

And some products just lend themselves to spoofs without even changing the name:



I found this at BJ's in Southeastern Virginia

I'm not interested in pandemic themed parodies. I think Dude Wipes could have some general potential.

Dud Wipes may be the obvious choice.

I'm with you Pat, It's bad enough to turn on the radio or T.V. and hear something being added each day when it's supposed to be disappearing from all the communities.

Agreed.  Knowing what we now know, would be in very poor taste.

Hopefully this set would never come in to fruition, but if it did, I wouldn't buy one.

I think Lavirus pretty much covers it.
