Ronald, other clowns, hot gimmick?

Posted By on Thu, May 20, 2010 at 3:31 PM

Well-meaning anti-junk food groups are calling for the retirement of McDonald's iconic Ronald McDonald clown saying the advertising mascot is "clowning with kids' health."

The activists argue that the popularity of Ronald — and clowns in general— are encouraging kids to overeat. See here: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540/vp/37254341#37254341

Sigh.

OK. OK. We all want kids to be healthy. And many of us are fed up with junk food pushers targeting our kids. But, um, guys...

Clowns? Popular?

Everyone - EVERYONE - knows that clowns are piss-your-pants terrifying.
