Fatty Water

By at 10 December, 2008, 12:00 am

I recently went to the movie theater and this signage caught my attention. I wasn’t aware that water had calories. And someone please tell me why the small bottle has up to five but the large has zero.


McDonald’s Marketing: What are you thinking?

By at 5 December, 2008, 5:10 pm

People are abuzz over the new McDonald’s commercial featured below. [youtube 0Rb7qt7xkj0 nolink] Some are crying racism over the washed up R&B artist singing to his girl, trying to get her to share the chicken nuggets.

I am constantly amazed how much truth is more interesting and bizarre than fiction.
