Frabjous Times

Let me guess - a baby boomer did not design this

The other day I picked up a package of Breyers Creme Savers yogurt swirls to bring to work for lunches. When I opened up one of the cups, I saw a circle divided into six even parts (not "swirled"), light sections alternating with dark. It looked exactly like the radiation warning symbol familiar both from my Cold War childhood plus my years handling sources in particle physics. It wouldn't make me not want to buy the product, but it makes a person my age awfully pensive while having dessert.
