Yet Another Sign The End is Near

Leave it to Japan to take yet another "innocent, family-oriented" mainstay of American culture and turn it into a sexual (or should I say "sexist"?) turn-on...



I'd say it lends a whole new meaning to the term "golden arches".

Sex advertising something deadly - yawn - what else is news?

Booze, cigarettes, meat, cars, politics, whatever. Sex sells.

Turn off the TV. Permanently. It all goes away.

Eltigris growls: After all McDonalds is just pimping addictive food anyway ... and they already had their pawz slapped for directly trying to influence kids with advertising.... so why would this be any different? *chuckles* Ronald looks better and has a latex fetish .... super size me ...baby "Im your pimp ..Im your dealer ...Im your honey man..." (one very mangled line from the movie super size me)

Hey, if we're stuck with a burgeoning corporate totalitarianism, why not do it drunk and with a woody?

You have been warned!

I guess we know where that special sauce comes from! /rimshot/

According to the Times, when faced with accusations that hamburgers were inimical to the country's diet, Den Fujita, the first McDonald's Japan president, declared: "The reason Japanese people are so short and have yellow skins is because they have eaten nothing but fish and rice for 2,000 years. If we eat McDonald’s hamburgers and potatoes for a thousand years we will become taller, our skin become white and our hair blond."

Too bad they'll all weigh 280lbs.

The ironic thing about that is that there is a famous line spoken by a Japanese government minister back in the late '80s to explain why Japan was reluctant to import American and Australian beef:

"As you know the Japanese have longer intestines than Westerners, so it is more difficult for them to digest beef."

First it was longer intestines, now it is BSE...even though Japan has had far more cases of BSE than the U.S. (but don't bother trying to tell them that)...

My god, the years of therapy I shall require when my wife catches me spanking it to Ronald McDonald.

"Come on, baby. Give me the happy meal."

Eltigris Growlz: Hey if Ronald is dressed like that ..just imagine what the hamburgler would be like *chuckles* ...even the name caters to it.

ahh, crap. you guys crack me up.
Leave it to the Japanese to take something American and turn it sleeker and more efficient.

Seymour said...

Well Catfish, I agree with the sleeker part, but more efficient? How can you get more efficient than Ronald? He's more globally recognized than Christ or Santa Claus. The fact that He's branching out in a new regional gender role sends a chill down my already twisted spine. He'd be one of the Four Horsemen except the scientifically fattened mare he was riding was ground down to make more BigMac patties for Consumerville, OH.

The Moody Minstrel said...

Actually, Seymour, last year my son once asked me, "Is that Jesus or Santa Claus?" At the time, he was pointing at a life-sized figure of Colonel Sanders.

As a staunch rival of the chicken dude, I'd say that would make Ronald either the grinch or the anti-christ.

Eltigris Growlz: Why did the chicken cross the road?

(Answer) Did I miss one?
...Colonel Sanders
