Now with WINGS!

In my opinion the wings hurt  :-[
Of all the things you wear, your expression is the most important

The heaviest thing you can carry is a grudge..

One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.

One thing you can't recycle is wasted time.

Last week on the news we learned a California man ordered his BK Whopper cut in half so he could share it with his mother (drive through customers).  The receipt came with his burger with "FUCK YOU" printed twice.  Both the clerk and the manager lost their jobs.

On a BK commercial today, you could win an XBOX 360 every 15 minutes with a BK Whopper order   ;D  Have the best day

I learned Macy's has a commercial featuring the song from "Rent--Seasons of Love" to sell jewelry.  Something just didn't seem right to me.  All the clips of straight couples/weddings and not a single gay couple.
