You see I was flipping channels (Really! I don't watch this show because that would also mean I know it comes on right after 90210. And knowing that would be too embarrassing for words.) and who did I see, but Vizzini from The Princess Bride gazing longingly at five multi-colored bottles. Hoping he'll make a quick homage to his famous role by saying, "Hurry up! Move that... thing. And that other... thing," I stay on this channel that apparently has the unfortunate name of "The CW."

Strangely, I was uninterested in any of this. So I threw the remote at my television and picked up a book. I then realized I no longer knew how to read, so I fell asleep.
And thus concludes another (echo please) GREAT MOMENT IN PRODUCT PLACEMENT HISTORY.
As a post script, I'm fairly certain I would have won the Vitamin Water Design Competition using nothing more than a faucet, some food coloring, a ground up Centrum and two packets of sugar. My flavor would have been called "Vitamin Water Sucker," not because it tastes like a lollipop, but because you're a sucker to pay $2 for a bottle of colored sugar water.
