Whatever Became of TV Trays?

Vintage Collectible TV Tray
This vintage retro “mod” breakfast-in-bed TV tray is a collector’s item and is selling for $65 bucks on eBay, where TV Tray Collectors (yes, believe it or not) are posting ads asking a small fortune for these relics.

At one time civilized couch potatoes ate their TV dinners on classy TV Trays, but now the slovenly eat their grub without them — holding their plate with one hand while eating the food with the other — most of the time getting food all over the couch and carpet, leaving ugly stained areas disturbing to potential civilized guests entering the animal den.

Good news is Walmart sells TV trays for those wishing to eat in a civilized way, but they’re dull compared to mod TV Trays of days gone by.  TV Trays have been updated to new adjustable folding laptop TV trays where diners simply eat their food and use their computer in bed.  The venerable old TV Tray has been re-invented to a functional modern design:

“The Chew” Celebrates 100 Years of Mayonnaise for its Sponsor


stopeating_smallHaters of mayonnaise are having conniptions over The Chew’s celebration of 100 years of mayonnaise (video) as obese chef Mario adds piles of it to greasy hamburger and mixes it with his un-gloved hands to create his “Juicy Salsa Burger.”  He even slathers more mayonnaise on the buns and puts a glob of the stuff on top of the burger before adding the top bun. Apparently chefs are adding mayonnaise to hamburger and calling it a “Gourmet Burger.”

“Commercial mayonnaise is usually made with unhealthy fats and offers very little nutrition. Most types of mayonnaise found at the grocery store, including the low-fat and low-calorie versions, may negatively affect your health.” [SOURCE]

FOOD, FOOD, FOOD!  EAT, EAT, EAT! — Christ, no wonder there’s an obesity crisis going on with TV chefs making high-calorie fat-laden recipes that housewives embrace to kill their families.  People are getting diabetes in epidemic numbers at this time because we’re constantly being bombarded on TV with a glut of cooking shows and relentless commercials hawking greasy, high-calorie junk food.   The push to consume food is ambushing us at every turn from print media to film, television, Internet and radio because it’s big business for the food industry.


they live consumeDespite all the health warnings, fast-food companies continue creating new, TOXIC products, such as doughnuts filled with eggs and bacon, hamburgers piled high with pounds of meat, bacon and cheese, etc.  People who are too lazy to cook and unconcerned about their health promote this evil by buying it.  It’s INSTANT GRATIFICATION — we’ve become a growing culture of impatience.  In other incidences, people who are under stress are buying and/or cooking this garbage (they see on TV cooking shows) to comfort themselves (i.e., “comfort food”).  The food-addicted sit on their comfy couch feeding their faces with unhealthy, instant food while watching TV shows about food and are bombarded by TV commercials in-between hawking food, sending subliminal messages to CONSUME.
