How many of you love a big, juicy Whopper? I have to admit, when I was in high school, that was my favorite off-campus lunch treat. There's something about the sauce that just tastes so great. These days I don't eat them that often, but when I'm on a road trip and have to choose between a Big Mac and a Whopper, I always choose the Whopper. Recently, as a publicity stunt, Burger King discontinued the Whopper at one location. They set up cameras and recorded the reactions. Some folks freak the heck out. They've been showing some of the clips in their recent television commercials, and they're absolutely great. They also pranked folks by replacing Whoppers with Big Macs and Wendy's burgers.

What would happen if the worlds of our favorite viral-video stars were to collide and collapse into one? Entertaining chaos, that's what. I personally believe that all Americans should continue quoting Miss Teen South Carolina and the taser bro, only after throwing white sheets over their heads and crying alone in a corner for a few hours. Y'all with me?
How many butt flashers does it take to sell an energy efficient light bulb? Eight too many. Prepare yourselves — it's a full moon up in here. . .
It's hard to believe that Mr. Belvedere was a popular show back in the day. It's also hard to believe he was the face of fun in the '80s. Where was I during all of this? Oh, that's right. I was busy being sane.
Have you been neglecting those much needed home repairs and around the yard responsibilities? The following spokeswoman knows how to get the ball rolling on overdue household chores. Take note.
I can't think of anything more persuasive than a sweating, maniacal car salesman pelvic thrusting his way over to me with a set of keys in his hand. Genius.
She's thinner, leggier, and has hair "down to there." She's the new Top Model Barbie. She's got a seductive gaze, stylishly blunt bangs, and multiple size negative outfits to squeeze her scanty waist into. Who wouldn't want to get their little girl this perfect role model? In three words: this is frightening.
Thanks to Tay Zonday, the little croaker that could, cherry-chocolate rain is in the air. The viral video star sold out to the Dr. Pepper folks and got bikini-clad backup dancers, rapper sidekicks, and some mouth gold in return. Fame may have changed our talentless train wreck, but a couple things remain the same: zero sex appeal and surreal lyrics. Yup, he's still not got it. What a relief.
I've always been a free WiFi hunter, but having an iPhone has definitely heightened my hunting instincts. I am constantly seeking signals in cafes, restaurants, and stores and get a sick thrill out of finding one and getting online in unexpected places. Apparently, I'm not alone.
A California company called AnchorFree has launched a service that lets stores of any size (as in small restaurants or major chains) offer free, advertising-supported Wi-Fi to customers on store property.
According to the New York Times, people who are shopping or eating in an AnchorFree location will have to sit through onscreen banner ads or short video spots or both before they can get online and roam the web. So far, companies such as American Express, Circuit City, Clorox, Ford, Kaiser Permanente, McDonald’s, Toyota, and Major League Baseball have all signed up. While I hate commercials, I figure a short video is a small price to pay for being able to get online and check movie listings or Google maps. What do you think?
According to EA Sports, "get in the game" is an equal opportunity sales pitch— and this granny's already on it. You go girl!
