Bones - The Bomb in the Photo

Did anyone else notice how, in last week’s episode, Bones totally photobombed Booth’s super-serious video will/last testament to daughter Christine? (“Parker? Who’s Parker?”) Like, it was supposed to be a touchingly heartfelt moment, and yet I Could. Not. Stop. Laughing. Literally. Through the entire segment.

This might be my favorite moment of Season 8. That is, until they break out the vegan noms. (Tofutti drumsticks, anyone?)

purely decadent vegan ice cream on bones

Who watched last week’s episode of Bones? (7×09, “The Don’t In the Do” – available on Hulu!) Did you notice that one of the pints of ice cream that Bones and Booth were about to make sexy time with looked an awful lot like Purely Decadent by Turtle Mountain?

It’s hard to be sure, since Fox was obvs being a bunch of poopyheads and purposefully not positioning the label so that it faced the audience – vegan companies just don’t have the advertising bucks of, say, a Chevy, which bought its own 90-second infomercial smack dab in the middle of the episode – but considering Emily Deschanel’s veganism, it’s plausible.

I nearly squealed with joy when I saw it. I JUST LOVE VEGAN ICE CREAM SO MUCH!

I get the same way about Wegmans brand products on The Office, since I used to work there. Wegmans, not Dunder Mifflin.

TONIGHT: Hit Fox Show Bones to Spotlight Farm Sanctuary Footage

Thursday, November 5th, 2009

I just spotted this notice from Farm Sanctuary in my inbox and thought I’d share. Tune in to Fox tonight at 8PM Eastern time, where the “darkly comic procedural drama”* Bones will feature undercover factory farm footage secured by Farm Sanctuary and specially requested by the show’s star – fellow vegan Emily Deschanel.

Alas, I won’t be watching. Though I adore Bones, I’m somewhat of a newbie fan, and am only halfway through Season 4 on DVD. Tonight’s episode will languish on my DVR until the Mr. and I catch up. So no spoilers, mkay?
