Default Hot Pockets Ready in 2 Minutes

What is it with marketers and advertisers that they can't tell the plain truth? Why, when it clearly says in the instructions:

Cook for 2 minutes, then let stand for 2 minutes.

Why did the advertising guy have to say "Ready in 2 minutes"?

Drives me nuts.

But that's nothing when I look at my Bacon, Egg and Cheese hot pockets that I have for breakfast every day -- something that really is the best thing since sliced bread -- when I read the little seal they've attached that says proudly:

Made with Real Eggs and Cheese!

I can't help wondering about the bacon. Where does that come from? Is it unreal?
