Remember the good old days? Not the days that you had to go to school in three feet of snow on a bike with no tires or seat......we're not going that far back. I'm talking about the days of freebies. The days when a soda company would have a contest and you would know if you won immediately when you turned the lid off. It was either "You're a Winner" or "Please Try Again." What it didn't consist of was some obnoxious code that had to be entered on a website online, but before you can enter that code you must create an account with the website online. So, after five minutes wasted creating an account and logging in you finally discover....you are still a loser!

I want to go back to the good old days of instant gratification or let down. The days when you would dump out all the cereal in the box just to get the free toy inside. Do kids even know what a prize inside the cereal box is anymore?? Pretty soon we'll have to mail in UPC crap just to get a temporary tattoo from Cracker Jack. You know it's only a matter of time before they change their method as well.
