Miss America's Defunct

Long Live Miss Ronald Mc Donald ! The clown make-up's been ditched and the shoes are to die for. The Japanese might go for it, but I really don't think the American mind is ready for this intense variation on the Ronald McDonald theme. On the other hand, this could cause donations to Ronald McDonald House to go through the roof.

Great. McDonald's goes for Bulemia chic. "Now it's okay that you can't keep our food down!"

It's not enough to aggressively advertise to children food that can only make them less healthy in proportion to the amount the eat, but now they're targetting, what? Women? Using the same type of ad-campaign that has contributed to low self-esteen of young women everywhere, and will provide food that can only make that self-esteen worse?

Fabulous guys! Fabulous!

True confession: Tonight I had a double-quarter pounder.

Large fries; Lots of ketchup.

Large Coke.

And I felt not even remotely guilty.

No, but you probably felt a few other things!

Heh. You're right about that. That was my first Coke binge in a few weeks, so I had a raging headache all night, and other less discussable problems as well. Learned my lesson, I did, but, once again, felt not the slightest tinge of guilt.
