This is just what the youngsters always wanted: to eat a witch made out of a hot dog. Therefore, your kids will be “kings and queens of the neighborhood” if you serve this to their friends. Granted, a hot dog is not generally interpreted as a mandate to rule, but perhaps the neighborhood does not know this.
What this really means is that YOU will be the acting Queen of the neighborhood, since your children will be too young to assume their royal duties. OK, now we’re talking! Bring on the weeny witches.
Now, after you have made the children eat weeny witches, and grabbed control of the monarchy, you can enter the “Make the Baby Talk Contest”* (that’s at the bottom of the ad). After all, you are the Queen, right? So the baby must have something to say about this. What will you make the baby say? How about:
- No, Your Highness, I will not throw my strained peas on the floor any more.
- Why certainly, I would love to sit in the playpen. Perhaps you could hand me a few magazines through the bars. If you would be so very kind. Or perhaps one of the courtiers could do this [hint: that would be the cats].
-Those Weeny Witches were an inspired idea, Your Highness! I simply cannot wait to see what delights you have in store for the Christmas season.
