A Brief History of McDonaldland and the Toys (and Lawsuit) It Spawned
In 1970-71, at the behest of the McDonald’s Corporation, the advertising agency Needham, Harper & Steers created a fantastic imaginary world they dubbed McDonaldland, and a cast of characters to populate it: Officer Big Mac, Grimace (a revision of a character who was once a four-armed villain), the Hamburglar, Mayor McCheese, the [Mad] Professor, Captain Crook and, of course, Ronald McDonald. | By Mark Bellomo |October 4, 2016

Nia Jax

I have to admit that I dig Nia Jax... a lot! Right now she is hands down my favorite of all the current women wrestlers on the WWE roster. Currently she is being presented as a monster heel, but that just makes me cheer her on more and hope that one day she becomes the Womens Champion. Last night at the Royal Rumble she defeated Sasha Banks. While Sasha is great wrestler, her "legit boss" gimmick is getting a bit tiring.

Twinkie Me, Bitch! : Breaking Bad Hostess Ad

AMC recently had a marathon of the critically acclaimed TV show Breaking Bad starring Bryan Cranston as Walter White and Aaron Paul as Jesse Pinkman. I binge watched the whole thing as I never watched it when it first aired. While looking for more information about this series on the interwebs, I ran across this delightful gem!

Artist Brendan Tobin has created “Twinkie Me, Bitch!,” a Breaking Bad spoof of the classic comic book ads that Hostess ran for Twinkies in the 1970s and 1980s.
