I wonder if they take walk-ins?

If you’re a restaurant fancier, you simply must read this bit of humor.  It was fantastic!

Sit Yer Fat Butt Down ... and Eat!

Catching up on my SciFi Channel watching tonight, I’ve seen (more than once … but that’s a different rant) Burger King’s latest ad campaign, featuring the return of Dr. Angus (Harry Enfield).  You know the character:

  • (too) perfect teeth
  • “sloppy” speech (much like Patrick over at Nobody Likes Onions)
  • Hair only Wink Martindale’s mother could love
  • bit of a paunch

Yep … that’s the guy (I’ve gotta give Enfield credit, he does a great job with this character).  And the focus of this latest campaign, the crux of Dr. Angus’ latest “empower yourself through beef” movement?  Power Sitting:  the power of the Angus to enable you to sit … and enjoy things … like hamburgers that require two hands and a forklift to maneuver.

Now, on one hand, I find the concept cute … on the other hand, I’ve gotta ask myself one question:

“With all the concern with obesity in America, doesn’t an obviously overweight man encouraging people to partake of inactivity while they eat hamburgers the size of their own heads … seem contradictory … or maybe just plain wrong?”

Now That's What I'm Talkin' About

Remember those cool communicators in Earth: Final Conflict? Or, perhaps, the ones from TekWar (ok, ok, yeah it’s a Shatner thing, but the technology was cool)?

We’re getting close … check out this little ditty from over at GadgetFlash. Phillips has it goin’ on.
