New Media grew up fast! It seems like just yesterday that New Media was an adorable pet video, a fantastical star wars kid, and a curiously freaky breakdancer. Not anymore. New Media is big now: Big companies, big names and big budgets. It’s been the subject of a writer’s strike, and has penetrated every major genre, including fairy tales.
As our classic bedtime stories are replaced by New Media productions, Betty’s not about to sit on the sidelines and watch! No ma’am! Betty loves herself a good fairy tale, and she found the inspirato to write her own:
“One Unicorn Fritter. One Evil Locust. One magical adventure to save the universe!”
Will Betty the Unicorn Fritter prevent the evil locust from inheriting the throne? Will the universe be saved? Are corn fritters a perfect side dish for summer? Watch Betty the Unicorn Fritter to find out for yourself…

SPECIAL BETTY SHOUTOUT!
Check out this awesome photo of Jordan 13 (left), Grace 9 (middle), Naomi 6 (right) and Dad, George at the top. What a beautiful family! And, oh, what are they doing at the breakfast table in their charming Charlotte, NC home? Ears are plugged. Tasty lookin’ waffles on the table. Hmm… could it be deja vous?
“The Waffler was such a huge hit with my kids that one morning, my daughters asked me while I was making breakfast ‘What’s a superdelegate?’ As I was trying to explain while slinging eggs and bacon, I looked up… and both girls had their fingers in their ears. Grace takes her fingers out and says, ‘First of all, I can’t hear you.’ Average Betty: corrupting our youth since 2006.”
Very sophisticated question Grace and Naomi… BUT an even more clever answer! Thanks for sending the fun story and picture, George! Your beautiful family (and fine looking waffles) have really warmed Betty’s heart! And the breakfasts you have together sound awesome! This SPECIAL BETTY SHOUT OUT goes out to Jordan, Grace, Naomi and George! Charlotte, North Carolina in ‘da house!
