Sorry, Size Does Matter

Once again, I seem to have draw the short straw!

Would a rose by any other name, you ask, still smell as sweet? Sure. If they had called it the Betty Lou instead of the Titantic, would it still have sunk? You Bet. You can lead a horse to water, but if you can get him you float on his back you got something. Off topic, but my favorite Henny Youngman joke.

The McMarketing McGeniuses at McDonald's have decided this McSummer to rebrand what last McSummer was the Supersize Coke. So, the Supersize Coke of yesteryear has been reborn as the Ex-large or 42-oz Coke of today.

I assume McPanic hit McHeadquarters because of the bad McPublicity generated by the movie Super Size Me, in which Morgan Spurlock documents his month of eating nothing but McDonald's food (he has to try everything on the menu at least once, and he must super-size his order if asked).

What the McFolks in McPurchasing at McDonald's apparently forgot in their McFrenzy, however, was to order the ex-large straws! That's a shiny penny behind what you can see of the straw sticking out of the cup in the insert. So, pucker up, and be prepared to get up close and personal with your McLid.
