Weetos have dumped Professor Weeto in favour of a new family-orientated ad campaign / brand image thing, which features some little kid playing football. A sad day for Weetos fans everywhere, no doubt.

A friend of mine took this particularly badly, and wrote Weetos a letter (http://64.233.183.104/search?q=cache:0EirMnP7J8kJ:surreal.istic.org/gallery/54/+weetos&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=12). Then he published it. You will notice that the above link is to a google cached version of the page. This is because some days later, he received an email from someone claiming to be the mother of the child, objecting to the phrase "obnoxious brat", and requesting that it and the picture of him be removed from the site. The current version (Weetos (http://surreal.istic.org/gallery/54)) of the page is somewhat less objectionable, but apparently a further email has been received, complaining that google and yahoo have cached the phrase obnoxious brat (http://surreal.istic.org/gallery/54).

So apparently there's a whole bunch of vanity googling going on. Which leads to the conclusion that making the letter appear higher up the results (http://www.google.com/search?q=weetos) for "Weetos (http://surreal.istic.org/gallery/54)" (currently #11 on google) will be greatly amusing.

Edited to avoid "legal action".

It's this kid
