The Sparkle Fairy in, “More Towels, More Ribs”


I’ve always considered the Sparkle Fairy to be in that rarified class of people (entities?) who are cool yet disquieting at the same time. Progressive insurance’s Flo I would include in this grouping, although she lacks supernatural powers.  I’m not sure that I’d like to encounter the Sparkle Fairy in my supermarket or elsewhere, although she seems mostly harmless.  To give proper credit, however, she wears blue really well, and some people even consider her hawt.  I also appreciate her general vibe and “fish-out-of-water” characteristics.

In a recent commercial, a guy is pigging out on ribs, a messy meal, and wishes for more paper towels to assist in this.–PrestoThe Sparkle Fairy appears, and announces that her product now offers 200 more sheets than a leading competitor’s brand.  “I wish I had 200 more ribs!,” pines the hungry guy.  Obligingly, the Sparkle Fairy makes those ribs appear on his table.  Smitten, the guy proposes marriage on the spot.  “I’m into Giants,” advises the fairy matter-of-factly.  To each their own, I suppose, and who am I to judge?

In my twisted mind, I can envision a paranormal investigation show going in search of the Sparkle Fairy and perhaps baiting a trap with paper towels. When thus captured, the fairy’s anger is unleashed and serious dark enchantments ensue, with many turned into newts. Hilarity ensues…

    As a fan of THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN (1957), I’d rather she render me merely the size of a newt, while letting me keep my human form. That way, _she’d_ be the giant in the relationship!

    Or is that too much info? 😉

      Now we’ll do a cross-over with “Zoltar,” who will intone, “Your wish is granted!” – – Poof! You’re now the size of a newt! But wait…doesn’t the Sparkle Fairy, now giant in your changed status, appear scary and menacing, like “Rodan” or “The Flying Claw” in those vintage movies? – – Watch out! The air currents from her flapping wings could knock you off your feet! – – Aiee!

      (Tune in next week for the Adventures of Carycomic in Wonderland!) ; )
