My question is - Why was Betty Rubble left out of Flintstone Vitamins? What great offense did Betty commit to deserve this treatment? What type of prejudice is this? I think she needs representation - where are the equal rights people when you need them?


However, I could have lived without this:

Funny thing is the other day while I was doing some typing I was wondering what the longest words were that could be typed with one hand. Don't ask me why - the mind plays funny tricks on you when not properly occupied!!


Thanks for this post, gHari!

Not to worry I got it and had a good chuckle!! /images/graemlins/laugh.gif


But you know if anyone should have been left out of the vitamin bottle it should have been fat headed Fred! Look at him - he is not exactly the poster child representative for a healthy lifestyle. You would think the way he had to drive that rock car of his that he would have lost a few pounds!! /images/graemlins/tongue.gif

LOL L.E. haha


Well, guess what? My father actually *looked* somehting like Fred! ha And he acted like him too, the big tough guy who was grumping at everyone but really had a big heart. And yes, also ate all the wrong foods! I think Fred is there cuz he's just so darn funny. But why Betty was left out has never been answered, or corrected, and its been years! They've been ignoring this Betty issue completely. Time to lodge a protest in front of the headquarters of this vitamin company. /images/graemlins/smile.gif
