We're baaaaack...!! It's election time in America again, which means it's prime time for nuts, dicks, and boobs! Please feel free to welcome us back by sending any sort of food or - of course - tube socks. Also, it would be fun if you would leave some comments. (Unless, of course, they're negative comments. I mean - who needs that?)

Burger Execs Don't Have A Sense of Humor
Jack-in-the-Box has some pretty funny commercials, but don't tell that to the suits over at CKE Restaurants, Inc. They're the fine folks who run the Carl's Jr. and Hardee's fast-food joints. They've got their knickers in a bunch because they want people to know that their new Angus burgers do not, I repeat, do NOT come from a cow's anus. Apparently they're afraid that when Jack-in-the-Box makes fun of their new "Angus" burgers, people will get confused and think they're eating a cow's ass.
So they're doing what all good corporations do when they discover that they're missing their funny bone. They sue. They're trying to get the court to order Jack-in-the-Box to pull the offending ads.
"They're not being funny," CEO Andrew F. Puzder sniffed. "They need to stop misleading people about what Angus beef is."
So take a look at the commercial and judge for yourself if it's funny or not. Personally, I laughed my anus off.
