Big Boy Re-launches Tubby Teen Brand
"For years we've heard from our customers how so many of the special times of their lives have happened at Big Boy Restaurants. Generations of customers have had memorable family experiences at Big Boy: going to Big Boy after school, on their first date, for birthdays and Sunday brunches. Couples have met at Big Boy; one couple even got married at our restaurant. It's those kind of moments that the commercials depict, building on the relationships that people have with the Big Boy character."
I don't have terribly fond memories of Big Boy, even though I ate their several times a week for a while as a child. My sister and I used to time ourselves and set personal records for how fast we could complete the puzzles on the kids' menu. I also remember a particularly frightening LSD experience at a Big Boy in which the bricks in the wall were heaving in and out of their mortar. Unpleasant. I'm glad to hear they're keeping the "Boy", though. It's reassuring in these yellow alert times. posted by AES on Friday, February 28, 2003 | link to this post |
Detroit area high school student Bretton Barber was sent home from school for wearing a T shirt with a picture of George Bush and the caption, “International Terrorist.” According to Barber, "I wore the T-shirt to express my antiwar sentiment...In the morning, I got a lot of compliments and no negative feedback. But at lunch, the vice principal came and said I had to turn it inside out or go home. When I asked why, he said I couldn't wear a shirt that promotes terrorism."posted by p on Wednesday, February 26, 2003 | link to this post |
The Disorder that Dare Not Speak Its Name
"A pharmaceutical company has patented a topical cream as a treatment for a condition it calls female sexual arousal disorder. In 1999, The Journal of the American Medical Association reported that 43 percent of women between 18 and 54 had experienced some sort of sexual dysfunction. In its patent, the inventors define female sexual arousal disorder as the persistent or recurrent inability to attain, or to maintain, sufficient sexual excitement, which causes personal distress.Note to the ladies: Pedro would love to take a look and see if he can't fix the problem without resorting to pharmaceutical intervention.
