Who Has Time for That?

Watching a cooking show the other day, I saw an ad for Marie Callendar pot pies talking about how the crust is made from scratch and the ingredients simmered with love and care. And then the ad said “who has time for that? Marie Callendar, that’s who.”
Seriously? Are we going to fall for this yet again? 
These obviously assembly-line made pies may have once been lovingly made by Marie herself but now? Owned by Conagra, each and every homogenous pie is wrought in a factory by workers with benefits in white coats and hair nets.
