It says something interesting about the modern world that I can very easily make a joke that is easier to understand for people of a foreign culture than to people of my own culture.
The only reason I know about Fig Newtons at all is because of imported American TV shows. They don't exist here in Australia, and I've never seen one, let alone eaten one.
Yet I can come up with a comic like this, off the top of my head. Just stop for a minute and think about what that means about society and culture today.
I actually had to search for the name as I didn't remember what the official name was - nearly everyone calls them "fruity pillows". At least in my experience.
