But back to fast food. This, right here, is an image of burgers and fries purchased at four different fast food establishments. TWO YEARS AGO. There’s been no decomposition. Which decomposes faster? A diaper in a landfill? Or a McD’s burger IN YOUR STOMACH? (Facebook)
And to get you to eat those burgers, the only word proven to be most effective in compelling you to eat them is “Premium.” Jonathan Safron Foer must appreciate the irony (you’ll have to dig deep to get that joke). (Esquire)

Here’s an assortment of things that our friend Nathaniel R. loves about Jack. What’s your favorite Nicholson performance?

Do you like to pass the time on long car trips with banal games? Here’s one called “Yellow Car.” It’s probably the worst car game ever invented. Mrs. Pajiba-hyphenate sent me this video, and I’m not entirely sure if it was in jest or if it was in earnest.
