Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

It’s a testament to Caprice Crane’s writing chops that I cannot get this Halloween-appropriate tweet of her’s out of my mind:

Kids’ first experience with Orwellian language comes when they see those tiny candy bars entitled: “Fun Size.”

No better way to instill Newspeak into the head than by going through the stomach (by way of the sweet tooth). Trick-or-treat totalitarianism! I’m sure Orwell, as well as Big Brother himself, would concur.

  1. I absolutely adore Caprice Crane. (Of course, she is utterly unaware of my existence, but such is life.)

    My favorite of her recent tweets:

    “I hope the last shot of 2012 is John Cusack, standing outside heaven, holding a boombox up to God.”

  2. @CGHill: You need to blog about her, dude. Chicks dig that. Well, chicks that tweet do, maybe.
