This Tush for Rent

Place: Taco Cabana
Lunch: 2 enchiladas (one beef, one cheese), two crispy beef tacos, beans, rice, warm tortillas, water with lime (guess what it tastes like)

Bananas are superfood for your heart.

Bananas are brain food.

Bananas are the bright spot in every day.

Bananas are quite possibly the world's perfect food.

I know all this not because I'm an expert on bananas, but because stickers on bananas I've purchased said so. And it hasn't stopped there...I've seen stickers on bananas actually advertising non-banana products.

Yes, somebody actually thought to sell advertising on a banana.

Marketing people are always on the lookout for new places to advertise. The latest (and possibly the most disturbing) trend I've seen as of late is on the butts of young girls. School slogans, sexual teases, and more are showing up on the back end of pants and shorts worn by the gender that would rather wear thongs than worry about somebody noticing their panty lines. It's only a matter of time before we see back there.

I have to wonder who it was who came up with this idea. Imagine the moment. Some middle-aged pervert executive is in line at a fast food restaurant somewhere, staring at some young girl's butt, and of all the things he could be thinking, he thinks "I could market that."

I guess I shouldn't complain about the bananas, huh.
