Today’s business section of the New York Times features an article about classic children’s characters getting 21st century makeovers.  American Greetings, after a year long “fruit-forward makeover” (heh?) have unveiled the latest and lamest incarnation of one of my personal favorites from the 80’s, Strawberry Shortcake. 

After contacting the executive board of American Greetings, it turns out that Ms. Sour Grapes and the Purple Pieman recently acquired the company.  Grapes had this to say, “We are berry excited about these new changes.  Bawwwwhaaaaaaaaaa!”
