Horrifying NO. Silly stupid Yes. But that's what it's all about. It's to get you to remember the product.

The worst thing about the new one from McD's "happy". It's just a box. WTF? They are not even trying. "We need a new mascot", "Ummmmm, I dunno, let's put a huge grin on a box.", "Sounds fine, to be honest I really give a f'k."

And these people are getting paid a lot of money to do that.

The real scary mascot is the GOP's elephant.  It remembers when the jobs the people in our country were paid enough so  one parent worked and the other stayed home and raised the family and day care was not a constant problem.  The elephant remembers when jobs paid a living wage, companies cared about their employees and gave them benefits so you could take your sick children to see a doctor.  Rich companies that donate MILLIONS OF DOLLARS to SUPER RICH GOP CAUSES pay their employees such low wages that their employees can not afford to eat without food stamps, pay rent without government assistance, or take their children to see a doctor without medicare.  MILLION DOLLAR CEO'S LAUGH ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK, but the people doing the real work for the company get nothing.  Look at the elephant, it's tears are watering the ground for what we hope will be a party that does not bow down to people like the Koch brothers, and the tea party.

The old fellow in the big cowboy hat got a standing ovation.
The Sierra Club and the U. S. Forest Service were presenting an alternative to the Wyoming ranchers for controlling the coyote population.
It seems that after years of the ranchers using the tried and true method of shooting or trapping the predators, the Sierra Club had a "more humane" solution to this issue. What they were proposing was for the animals to be captured alive. The males would then be castrated and let loose again. This was ACTUALLY proposed by the Sierra Club and by the U. S. Forest Service. All of the ranchers thought about this amazing idea for a couple of minutes.
Finally an old fellow wearing a big cowboy hat in the back of the conference room stood up, tipped his hat back and said,
"Son, I don't think you understand our problem here. These coyotes ain't ****in' our sheep; they're eatin' 'em!"
The meeting never really got back to order.
