All the whining in the blogs I’ve seen lately regarding the return (for a limited time!) of The McRib Sandwich must have had an effect.

Cass Sunstein rears his patient, but controlling head, yet again,, as the Administration’s purveyor of making you move in the direction ‘they’ want you to go.

I’m not an idiot and don’t swallow the entire Morton Salt box, chasing it with a bottle of MD 20/20 fortified with bacon fat covered chocolate!
