Makes me think of "ChickieNobs," a product Margaret Atwood created and named in her 2003 dystopian novel, "Oryx and Crake." The site Technovelgy.com cites their tasty introduction in the story: "This is the latest," said Crake. What they were looking at was a large bulblike object that seemed to be covered with stippled whitish-yellow skin. Out of it came twenty thick fleshy tubes, and at the end of each tube another bulb was growing. "What the hell is it?" said Jimmy. "Those are chickens," said Crake. "Chicken parts. Just the breasts, on this one. They've got ones that specialize in drumsticks too, twelve to a growth unit. "But there aren't any heads..." "That's the head in the middle," said the woman. "There's a mouth opening at the top, they dump nutrients in there. No eyes or beak or anything, they don't need those."

This is great, Nancy. "Ablixa" reminded me of another, um, calming product in a movie: The suicide product called "Quietus," which shows up in several commercials and ads before being used by a character in "Children of Men." Apparently, an actual medication also goes by that name: http://www.notarealthing.com/2010/04/quietus-you-decide-when/

So many cinematic "Houses" are haunted ones: House of Wax House of 1,000 Corpses House of Good and Evil House of the Dead House of Anubis (UK TV series). In that one, I hope the jackal-headed god is housebroken ;)

A carmaker has caught on, and "improved" on the apostrophe with an underscore. Behold the Kia Pro_cee'd GT and the Cee'd GT. Small measure of relief: These 2 cars are not coming to the U.S. I fear the unholy underscore would spread. http://www.edmunds.com/auto-shows/geneva/2013/2013-kia-pro-ceed-gt-and-ceed-gt-set-for-2013-geneva-auto-show.html
