Back in June I scribbled up a quick “buh?” about a new line of fish sticks released under a Disney brand.

Today at 08:42, that post received two hits from a Google search on pirate planks.

Ten minutes later, I got an email:

Here’s an article that may help with your previous comments about our products, “What evile is this? Disney-branded fish sticks? gah!”

These products were produced to get kids interested in eating seafood at an early age, due to health benefits and recommendations by the Federal Government with the new Food Pyramid.

The attachment is a press release noting the favorable comments received on these products from some food journalists out of Connecticut and describing the product’s full lineup, including the Pirate Planks I noted previously with Peter Pan and Tinker Bell; fish nuggets coated in cheddar-flavor crumbs with Mickey Mouse on the box; and Lilo & Stitch hawking an absolutely yuh-huh-hummy-sounding pizza-flavored “fish wedge” concoction.

The release was written yesterday; their PR folks are in overdrive apparently.

All I know is, they sold me just fine. I gotta get me some pizza-flavored fish wedges toot sweet.
