Getting high, McDonalds-style

McDonald's is going all-out with the TV advertising for the "latest addition to their salad portfolio", a fruit and walnut salad. Salad portfolio ? Did somebody really write that with a straight face ? Quite apart from this, what I find funniest about the ads are the fact that all the people in them talk about the "fruit buzz" they get from eating this salad. From their ad PR: A “Fruit Buzz” is a change in attitude and an overall happy feeling you get after tasting the new Fruit & Walnut Premium Salad. Is it just me, or does that sound like Engrish ? I guess if you regularly eat at McDonalds, eating fruit will give you a buzz, since it's like eating food from another planet, food that won't cause your body to shut down in a month.

[I gotta admit, though, McDonald's fries are pretty damn good.]
