Campbell's salute to Moms
What do moms dream of? Nah, it's not a life beyond diapers and bag lunches and homework and cleaning and being a handmaiden to the Guy Who Made All This Possible. It's how to be "more fun."
Apparently the "answer" to "how can I be a more fun mom" is to be found in the wisdom of a Wise Kid (he's wise because he's got a beard and lives on a cloud or a mountain or something, get it?)
No, mom can't dance- but she can use a can opener. And we all know how much kids love soggy canned noodles, processed chicken cubes and salt-infused broth, don't we? (Jeesh, when I was a kid I liked Campbell's Chicken Noodle Soup- when I was sick and couldn't keep down anything else. When I was a normal, healthy kid with a normal, healthy appetite? Yuck.)
So mom can change diapers, bag lunches, help with the homework, keep the house spotless AND heat up cheap soup. Boy, was she a catch. Not especially fun- but a catch nonetheless.
