Toss those cookies!

Some consumer groups are whining because products that (gasp!) aren't good for us are appearing in television shows: Apparently, if a child sees an Oreo in a television show, he/she might be scarred for life or, just as bad, may be persuaded to nag his/her parents to buy the stuff at the store. Oh, no! HORROR!

What I find fascinating is that no one seems in the least bit worked up when reruns of sitcoms (Friends comes to mind immediately) which are shown during prime time or when kids are eating dinner make explicit sexual references, but cookies get these people aggravated.
