"Why is Kevin Federline on your box of mints?"

My sweetie recently returned from an overseas flight with a remnant from the "courtesy kit" provided him onboard. This particular item was a box of Hiya Liquid Filled Mints - 32 Peppermint Conversation Pieces, in fact. The package sports a hologram of a squirrelly-looking guy bobbing his head in that rap star style. Overcome with curiosity, I used the odd little wheel dispenser to retrieve one of the mints, which mostly resembled a tiny bath oil bead.

It was only after the Aiiiiiiieeee! (and the spitting) that I noticed one of the ingredients is pork. Well, gelatin (pork origin). Still.
