The new Flinstone's Vitamins commercial talks about how it now has coline.  No biggie, right?

Except they explain that coline is an "INGREDIENT" found in breast milk.  An INGREDIENT?  Is there a recipe for breast milk?  Can I find it in a cookbook between braised beef and broasted chicken?
 
Is there a problem with the word "nutrient"?  Is that now one of the seven dirty words you can't say on TV?
 
Some of the writing in commercials these days is so amazingly bad, it's embarassing.

LMFAO at above.
 
But yeah, I don't know why I always come to the defense of the advertisers, but they probably MEANT "nutrient". They're just freaking idiots who don't realize when they sound stupid.
madness fills my heart and soul as if the great divide could swallow me whole

No wonder Flintstones Gummies are located next to the Slim-Fast at the Wal-Mart pharmacy--I used to work as an Inventory Control Specialist (read: stocker).
