I have to agree with mstrwndl about McDonalds - they never come up with anything original on their own - they just piggyback on to already created "whatevertheheckitis" Disney, Hello Kitty, American Idol.


Ditto.
I worked at Mickey D's all through high school and college (that was over 20 years ago!). Not once was a Happy Meal not linked to a movie or existing character of some sort. It continues today. And, I should add that looking back, it was one of the best jobs I had. It taught me responsibility, accountability and teamwork. Not bad for an evil corporation.

So, McBoxer...do you really work for the company--is that why you chose your McTrailname? There's I asked it!
Or is it possible that you chose your name because adding "Mc" to common words is funny these days ala Gray's Anatomy - um, remember McDreamy and McSteamy....or perhaps because you're located where McDonald's has their corporate headquarters??

It's already been said...I think there may be some jumping to conclusions with this topic. Time will tell. While I don't doubt that McBoxer has some item(s) they are trying to market, I just don't feel that it's related to any corporate giant. If I'm wrong, I'm wrong.

Quote Some people think that about the moon landing.


True, but in this case, conspiracy theory-wise, with the choices of a joke vs. a planned takeover by corporate America, the joke seems like the least crazy/most sensible explanation.

Bad form to reply to myself, but LOL I got to thinking, Shiloh, and I actually did a postal called "The Moon Landing Was Staged" for my conspiracy theories postal ring a while back. That was a fun group full of hilariously crazy (and incorrect???) theories, complete with a conspiracy of its own within the group. It's good to be able to laugh at these things. 8-)

I've seen the people that work there. If McD's isn't afraid to hire a liability I don't think they'd be afraid to sell one. :)


LOL! Gee- we must live next to the same one! :)

As a homeschool mom, I talk to myself and call it a parent-teacher conference.

HI Fluffy Cow, I usually answer with the statement that, I' m having an intelligent conversation, when asked if I was talking to myself.
I'm the celtic clan mom, waiting for Celtic daughter to return from her business trip.
Just wanted to say I really enjoy all the great stamps I have collected, and meeting all you wonderful people at the Stamp meets I have attended.

LOL!! I love it =o) I will definitely have to remember that line...

I know I talk to myself all the time, especially when I am trying to figure something out... like when I am out boxing. So I figured if I dress like a bag lady and wonder around talking to myself people will stear clear of me and then will not think it is at all strange when I start digging around in the bushes muttering to myself =o) Perfect cover!

Cheers!

OH I must use this!!!! Besides talking to myself...all I do during the day is walk around...you can ask any of my kids...never mind the fact I have 4 loads of clothes, dirty dishes and mail to be sorted through in my hands...

I will have such fun with this new "parent-teacher" conference!!!!

Have fun!

OOOH! I like this one! I'll do this for the students whose parents decline to show for their sceduled conferences this April...Then, I can still say I had the conference...and perhaps it will get me a Friday off?

Scenario:

Principal walks by room to see me talking to myself about such and such, and having an earnest conversation...thinks to self "self, she needs a break"...There's that self person again!

I watch TV standing up...always ON my way to do something, but it never quite gets done. I do sit down for "Tribal Council" on Survivor. I have my limits!

Love the PT conference line! =)

Rhea,

Absolutely wonderful cover.
I'll have to try that myself. And I think I have the wardrobe to meet the criteria.

The baggier and more mis-matched the better I think. =o) Make sure you have the right handbag to go with... actually I think the bag you have is pretty good. It is orange right? Yes, I think that would complete the look well... oh and a hat, you definitly need a hat. Maybe one with feathers or flowers... maybe both! Ha!! LOL

I thought a plastic wallmart bag would go perfectly
