Flax, Okra, Kale, Hemp, Chia

Witty banter. Saving the world. Selling nutrition bars.

These are great words, the names for these foods. And the superhero team pretty much assembles itself: Flax and Kale as the alpha female and male, Okra the big bruiser, Hemp the cerebral one, Chia short frizzy and gabby for comic relief.

I envision a show like the new Teen Titans. For those very few of you who might be unfamiliar, this superhero group has its provenance in a group that fought supervillains etc. The new version of them does not fight villians or do much at all except squabble, crack wise and get up to hijinks in the venerable sitcom style.

So too this crew. Although some fighting would be fine from time to time, to establish superhero cred. Mostly the idea is to endear the characters and drive sales of the healthy food bars containing their namesakes.

       Sitting here with chia and flax seeds between my teeth, I fear I must bun this, outta loyalty.

       Superhero team? When I'm scared, hurt or in peril, those are definitely not the 4 letter words which come to mind.

       The Spanish version might be:   

       Lino, okra, col rizada, cáñamo, Chia

       They need weaknesses too. Okra can't get wet or he gets all slimy. Chia's hair grows wild whenever he comes in contact with clay. Kale has to stay wet. Flax gets constipated when angry, and Hemp goes spacey around fire.

       Weaknesses; yes, yes: just so.   

       Their boss Oat (like Zorgon, or maybe Charlie) has no weakness, but no particular strengths either. Really no factors for or against. He will dispatch them to emergencies, or do other projects. Often he does not. Sometimes he just enjoys their company, in his own way, they suppose.

       How are you proposing to develop Bran-d awareness ?

       //How are you proposing to develop Bran-d awareness ?//   

       I was also wondering that, but maybe its just a niche market for the kind of parents that consider offering a drink in a plastic cup could be considered child abuse and grounds for divorce.

       there could be an origin myth about the "flaming carrot" starting a garden outside chernobyl.
