Hm, so many questions here, among which: why are a number of giant smiling foodstuffs on the moon, and why do they care about a fluoridated water supply? :ugeek: :)

Not as bizarre as some of those health PSA videos from the era! :lol:

Didn't know there was a kit, did ya? :)

I like that it includes not four, not five, but six authentic poems. That shows it's on the level. They could have just put in one or two fake ones. ;)
