Addicted to novelty since 2001

Ronald McHummer

From http://www.ronaldmchummer.comHaving read my recent question about Hummers and Harleys, Matthew emailed with a project his organization, the Environmental Working Group, is involved with:
Ronald McHummer:

This month McDonald’s is giving away toy Hummers — 42 million of them, in eight models and colors — with every Happy Meal or Mighty Kids Meal. That’s right: The fast-food chain that helped make our kids the fattest on Earth is now selling future car buyers on the fun of driving a supersized, smog-spewing, gas-guzzling SUV originally built for the military.

Their site features own of those make-your-sign applets, much like this famous one based on church signs. I made one which didn’t necessarily discuss the environmental impact of Hummers.

    That’s sad but par for McDonalds. I was more disheartened that the now soulless Pixar decided to release a film that makes cars look like lovable harmless entities worthy of anthropomorphic empathy.

    The next time Someone said a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me just as a lot as this. Come on, man, I know it was my choice to read, but When i thought youd have some thing intriguing to say. All I hear is actually a handful of whining about something you could fix in the event you werent too busy looking for attention.
