Good Morning Gentle Readers,
We've been on the air for close to a year now and the most popular thing we've ever done is the McDonalds parody. I had to take it down because people the world over were burning my bandwidth like it was greenbacks in DC. You can see it if you click here.
The McDonalds parody originally appeared on 09-06-05 as part of Chunk Ain't That Chunky and has been deleted. It is, however, reproduced below.
The House Blond and That Boy forced me to watch Goonies for the eleventh time in fourteen months the other night (oooohhh Daddy, it's the scary part, hurry). I'm pretty sure that Goonies is a cult film but that might just be at Casa de las Rocas Grande.
Ever mindful of the whiny
food Nazi's, er, ah, food Nannies, that are constantly and ever-so-smugly proclaiming that todays kids are ponderous porkers complete with man-boobs, TWC took an objective look at Chunk and decided that what passed for a fat kid two decades ago really isn't all that fat.
The nannies may be right but they're fighting a losing battle that dates at least to JFK's proclamation. The man had been dead for five years but they still sent the Marines to scare the hell out of Sandoval's gym class by imposing the USMC physical fitness test on us scrawny little 17-year-olds. After weeks of prep, most of us couldn't cut the mustard and marveled privately at how tough those guys must be.
But after failing miserably as a high school senior, two years later TWC was doing the deed for This Man's Marine Corps. Okay, so DI's are more inspirational than high school gym teachers (and their language is more colorful, too).
But when you get down to it, what does it really mean when you say today's kids are wimpy little dorks with Krispy Kreme Klogged arteries?
As Ever, TWC
