SNORRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRK

... although if I tried, I could probably tie that into the whole miss_mcdonald thing. but I'm not going to, 'cos I've got class.

That's where I grabbed the image - I'd heard about it but hadn't seen it. And some 'clever' folks posted the image as their comment on her posts. ;-)

I'd have to agree with them - about her - but the ad itself is just... wrong.

People are already combining food/ splosh play with clown motifs. It's not that much of a reach.

Link is NSFW, as general contents of site are NSFW.

I don't think I'll be able to see the phrase "I'm a dollar menu guy" without cracking up.

It is a whole new insult - "Oh... him? He's a dollar menu guy..."

"That guy's a total palm pilot."

Precisely. :-)

"He's a dollar menu guy" is the new "He's a one minute man".

So, for those of us that are hopelessly un-hip, do I dare ask what this is in reference to?
ardaniel From: ardaniel Date: February 17th, 2005 01:46 am (UTC) (Direct Link)
"I'd hit it" == "I'd have sex with $whatever"
zonereyrie From: zonereyrie Date: February 17th, 2005 01:49 am (UTC) (Direct Link)
Yep - a more directly translation is "I'd fuck it." "You see that ass?" "I'd hit it!" Also "I'd hit that."

So is basically: "Double cheesburger? I'd fuck it!"

Ah, that's what I get for viewing the post on a system that doesn't play the animations on stuff. All I saw as an ad that said "double cheeseburger?" And thought that had some kind of new sexual connotation that I was unaware of.

I knew about "I'd hit it", that one is pretty obvious.

We were laughing about the ads at dinner several weeks ago. Someone in marketing needs to make sure they understand what things mean before they make it into an ad campaign.

Or maybe they were going for an American Pie angle?

rollick says they did it deliberately.

Oh no! Now (The rest of the world) is going to learn slang wrong!

Its really sad that McDonalds and Coke are at the forefront of western civilization. I wish to be judged by foreigners on the basis of Wendy's and American Coffee.

At least they didn't say, "Dude, I need a bump. A burger bump." :)
