Diet Coke w/vitamins & minerals, $5 for 17 hrs. of gore, and genuine chocolate flavoring...

Now every teenager needs access to a cheap DVD with 17 hours of slasher movies on it. We don't have enough horror in the world but we need to manufacture it and market it cheaply.
Now my quest for a good chocolate topping for my ice cream was assaulted by the idea that I somehow need to reconcile the idea of a genuine chocolate syrup to notion that it contains genuine chocolate flavoring. Where'd the genuine chocolate go?
Oh, and let me note, that the cereal box got smaller and more pricey. Toilet paper rolls continue to get smaller in size (the mega roll is now the size of the old regular) and pretty soon you will need a signature loan to buy a package of 4. Come to think of it, the toilet paper and the 17 hrs of gore were almost priced the same.
Don't know the value of this in regard to GD, but these items struck me as mute testimonies to our cultural and economic values.
