  1. 1) Kraft Mac & Cheese

    2) the thing that should not be

    3) In collaboration with our government they get something mandated then are the only ones who sell or provide said product. Boom! I stand and consistent demand.

    4) Tool, A Perfect Circle, Koran, Springsteen, David Wilcox, Wicked Tinkers, I guess lots of bands I’d do that for.

    5) Kramer. No contest. I don’t even have to say the show, just Kramer and you know what show and exactly who I’m talking about.

  2. 1) Hamburger Helper in various flavors.

    2) Head over Feet

    3) Having been part of that machine in the consumer packaged goods segment; it’s all about the marketing. It is all a bag of tricks when it comes to consumer products. That is why I am glad to be doing non-profit health care (which is actually an oxymoron).

    4) The Beatles…but the release date seems to be MIA.

    5) Hawkeye Pierce – a smarmy, yet loveable wartime doctor who has wicked sense of humor, a heart of gold, makes a wicked martini (including the hooch) and delivers one-liners better than anyone in sitcom history.
