I think it's funny and surely communicates that you get the best of food.

Is Barry Flanik the agency's intern? The copy is beyond silly, unless children are the TA.

No, it's not, Curious (saw the conclusion coming from the first sentence), and yes it is, atb (children's bookish, and for why, one person on earth may know).

It's not working at all. Funny??? No way. More of teaching children animal cruelty by shattering their hopes & dreams lolz.

Total fail.

It's a shame these stories seem derivative. I gotta admit, I liked the salmon story. That one had the best ending. It somehow avoided the dream-crushing cruelty perceived by some readers, and definitely focused on the "best" and "fresh" aspect perceived by others.

It almost seems like they wrote that salmon Ad first; the other two, not nearly as well written. Oh well.
