Whole Foods Market Action Figures -- April Fool's Day, 2010
Organic grocery store chain Whole Foods Market debuted eco-conscious action figures. Eco Suave, the male figure, asked, "Hey baby, you gonna recycle that?"
Patchouli Pam, the female figure, boasted a "6-foot aroma radius!"


The action figures provoked a negative response from novelty-dealer Archie McPhee who accused Whole Foods, via Twitter, of stealing its signature action figures. Whole Foods tweeted back, "No way! Patchouli Pam & Eco Suave are Exclusive Brands originals. If you'd like to speak w/ our lawyers, we can arrange that."
