It’s funny, one of the only “after-school specials” I remember is the one devoted to eating disorders. In one scene, the main character goes into her room, dumps bags of potato chips and candy in a pile on the floor, and then starts to double-fisting the crap into her mouth. This was, I guess, a psa about binge eating.
My brothers and I missed the message and understood it as a “suggestion” or “idea”. It turned out to be a bad idea, because it wastes a lot of chips, makes a mess, and leads to dog-hair covered candy.
