Salad Wars

Post by Linnea » 05-30-2005 02:39 PM


Just in time for the release of the latest Star Wars movie, Free
Range Studios has put out a clever little internet-based animation
worth checking out. The piece, called "Store Wars," features a
smorgasbord of visual puns about vegetables all sliced and
seasoned with a timely message. Store Wars is about the "Organic
Rebellion" - a time in the not-so-distant future when food
production has been taken over by the dark force ñ an empire of
pesticide and pollution. Advised by Olie One Canolie, Cuke
Skywalker (a cucumber) goes to save Princess Lettuce and runs up
against his father - Darth Tatur (a potato). Store Wars, sprinkled
with scenes from past Star War flicks; including the famous bar
scene with fantastical characters ñ which here becomes, of course,
the "Salad Bar." Unlike Star Wars though, with Store Wars, in the
end, it's up to us, the consumer, to struggle with the dark side
every time we go to the store. Will we support the Organic
Rebellion? Or will we go to the dark side? Check it out at:

Boy I guess eating all that organic food did'nt help my spelling and grammer:D Hey it was late and I type in the dark you know...can't wake the rugrats or the missus.

This morning when I got up and ate my flax and pumpkin seed granola cereal, I noticed it said it does not pump sewage water onto its crops:eek: you mean all other nonorganics foods do! Boy I'm glad I'm going organic now! :D Good cereal by the way. Omega3 and other good stuff.
