Moichandising, moichandising, moichandising! Can't Post

With reference to "Yoghurt" in Spaceballs, all of this "moichandising" infesting the front page of TORN (Lego games, apps, board games, toys etc) is making me more and more empathetic to Christopher Tolkien and the Estate's position.

Perhaps I'm just getting old and crotchety.
