Burger King Under Fire...Again

Burger King needs to fire their ad agency. After a controversial ad that sparked criticism with the Mexican government, Burger King is again under fire with an ad that features Spongebob Squarepants to the tune of Sir Mix-a-Lot's "I Like Big Butts."

If the creepy plastic king dancing with scantily-clad girls doesn't disgust you, I don't know what will. Both BK and Nickelodeon -- who partnered in making the ad -- say the commercial is targeted for adults. Riiiiiiight... It features a cartoon character and speaks of the kids' meals. Not buying it.

Plus, if they're trying to target adults, they lost me. This commercial is not just completely inappropriate, but it's just terrible.

I Want One!

All you Star Wars fans with kids: for just short of $40 you can have your little one sleep in the belly of the beast, just like Luke had to on Hoth in "Empire Strikes Back"! Complete with internal intestines!

Now, if only they would make them in adult sizes (fits children and "small adults" -- I'm assuming that does mean busty 5'10'' pinup girls).

For A Father...For Your Family

Even through my hardened exterior, Pixie's heartfelt outpouring of emotion in her post today brought me to tears.

Pixie's father just recently passed away due to pancreatic cancer. Please consider a donation to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network in her father's name.

As Pixie puts it:
The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is a nationwide network of people dedicated to working together to advance research, support patients and create hope for those affected by pancreatic cancer. Through them, my family and I have set up a fundraising effort in memory of my dad. Please look at both websites and consider making a contribution.

I don't want what happened to our family to happen to yours.
