Nothing warms the cockles of our hearts more than when the owner of every leading ice cream brand (and also Slim-Fast!) decides to round out its offerings for the binge-purge demographic by inventing a new line of "firming" anti-cellulite lotions marketed under the auspices of aggressive self-acceptance. Unilever, the consumer products conglomerate behind Ben & Jerry's and all those new anti-cellulite lotions you should buy if you are one of those people who is kind of fat and cottage-cheesy but totally comfortable and happy that way (except, like, sorta not?) made a really profound and paradigmic announcement today: No more size zero models in its ads!
Needless to say, we are stunned. Is it even possible to sell ice cream and self-tanner without the help of an emaciated Estonian? Perhaps, but we are selling our shares in Unilever right after we finish this pint of Stephen Colbert's AmeriCone dream.
