The clip above is a television commercial produced by MEMRI - the Middle Eastern Media Research Institute.
I believe - at least I think I believe - the spot is supposed to connect eating chicken with the cause of war.
Or maybe it's the cause of war with eating chicken...?
ANYWAY, not just any chicken, chicken fed with "green soybeans." And these diabolical green soybeans eventually cause fashion models to blow themselves up and we - the Hoi Polloi - end up joining the army.
It's all coming clear now!!
Well, DUH! Stop growing GREEN SOYBEANS and POOF! No more war!
What?! Did I just see the White Dove of Peace bang against my window?!
Just to let you know, I'm going to wear my Nobel Peace Prize in public. If you see me at a restaurant, feel free to come'on up sit down - I'll even share my "grilled chicken" - chicken fed with good & proper chicken feed (not that evil-churning soy!)
Egads - my mom wouldn't let me use the butcher knife until I proved I could use it without harming myself...and so too should ad-people prove they can use decent logic before hoisting it upon the masses.

The graphic above is the cover of an actual book - "Cooking with Pooh."
And from the looks of the recipe featured on the book's cover, it looks like Pooh got a little help from his pal, Rabbit.
Scene: Perplexed father scowls at a half eaten cookie
"Honey?! Who made these?!"
(from downstairs) "The kids. Why?"
"They taste like funny!"
"Funny?! They should taste worse than that, dear..."
