There’s a great Simpsons quote in the episode where Milhouse’s dad is getting fired from the cracker factory for being divorced.
“Kirk, crackers are a family food. Happy families. Maybe single people eat crackers…we don’t know. Frankly, we don’t want to know. It’s a market we can do without.”

Now Viagra ads and such make at least some sort of sense (for such nonsense), but jet skis? Ah well, that’s how it is. Moms are also the only one’s in the kitchen too…

RACINE, Wis., April, 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Today’s moms have less time on their hands than ever before. According to research, 71 percent of all mothers with children under the age of 18 juggle responsibilities in the workforce and on the home front. However, spending time with family at the dinner table over a home cooked meal â€“ as opposed to eating an expensive meal out â€“ is still a high priority for many moms, with more than half reporting they currently spend more time cooking dinner for their families now than they did last year. To help busy families maximize their resources, save time and money and get more out of their meals, ZiplocÂ® Brand is introducing a new storage option: ZiplocÂ® VersaGlassâ„¢ Containers. Now families can store, heat and serve â€“ all in one container.
As the latest innovation from ZiplocÂ® Brand, the food and home storage solution families trust, ZiplocÂ® VersaGlassâ„¢ Containers are designed to go from the fridge, to the microwave or oven â€“ at temperatures up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit â€“ straight to the dinner table.
