Welcome To The New Improved Consumerist

Extensive market research that we paid out the @#$ for has determined that this blog doesn’t contain nearly enough pictures of cakes and cute animals. Today, at the beginning of a new fiscal blogging year, we’re pleased to bring you additional photographs of things you’d like to pet or eat.

We understand that many of you will be concerned that we are posting pictures that have nothing to do with the story or with consumerism in general.

To you we say, “our market research is unstoppable.” Enjoy.
