Junk Food Underpants

Last month, Anne and I went to this Beauty Event Thing, which we (wrongly) assumed was some kind of Cosmetics Product Tradeshow, but which turned out to be a convention center full of little girls standing in long lines to buy makeup. Plus, lots of Tweeting. It was basically ridiculous. Two grown women with real lives had absolutely no business being there except as a means to score free product to write about on our blogs, which was much easier said than done.

One of the booth displays was from a brand called Me Undies that sells expensive underpants, one style of which has pictures of junk food on them. Yes, I just typed that.

There is no denying that Junk Food Underpants have a great visual appeal, even if I believe that most younger ladies prefer a bikini style to a high-waisted brief. Nevertheless, they look quite well-made.

Me Undies, as you can see, was going full-on with their booth display, which included oversized inflatable donuts and papier-mâché pizza slices. Nicely done!

McDonalds Cheese Katsu Burger

The Katsu Burger from McDonalds in Japan contains a fried pork cutlet stuffed with cheese, topped with cabbage and sweet and sour sauce. It looks like it has mayonaise on it, too. I want to eat it.

The McRib Returns

“McRib is People.” That’s what my friends and I used to say about McDonalds’ boneless McRib sandwich when it first appeared back in the 70s. McDonalds just announced that they are bringing the McRib back to selected restaurants as a limited-time promotion, but I can’t imagine who would want to eat this thing. It tasted pretty gross back then and I’m sure it’s comparatively awful now. But I just read this article, The Ineluctable Return of the McRib over at Salon Dot Com, where author Francis Lam waxes nostalgic for the McRib in a way that was absolutely hilarious! Lam expressed great enthusiasm and conveyed such a profound sense of nostalgia for the McRib experience that, except for the unfortunate use of the word “Ineluctable” in the title – which, really, has Salon no editors? – I thoroughly enjoyed the read. Check it out at the link above if you’ve ever tasted a McRib and want a good laugh!
