'I'm afraid of Americans.'
Wonkette operative “Lily E.” was just driving around the outskirts of Madison, Virginia, this weekend when she was compelled to snap this picture of America 2010. It’s all there, everything. Everything.

    You’d think that fast food places would know by now better than to name a burger the Angus Burger, due to vandalism. Unless, of course, they’re inviting it. In which case, might I suggest the Fugck Burger.

    The Anus Burger – an anus stuck between two buns…seems a little redundant – after all, where else would the anus be?

    [re=597608]Lionel Hutz Esq.[/re]: It isn’t a well oiled anus burger: It’s an anus burger with gas.

    It’s tempting to see our vandal as accidentally speaking to BP, but so far commentors are skipping over that due to frequent beatings and whippings and are instead just thinking “one bad, two bad, hrair bad things.”

    I do like the idea, though, that McD is telling BP to have an anus burger, but I think their current burgermeister, Tony Hayward, is already an anus.

  • DC Hates Me

    [re=597637]the problem child[/re]: “And why does Madison, VA not have sidewalks?”

    Many suburban sprawl zones (not really called towns or cities) don’t have sidewalks. Everyone has cars and they stopped walking in order to gain weight. And because the only people who do walk are lowly mexicans (who mow all the pretty grass) and jogger types. Speaking of which, if jogging is healthy, dodging cars is healthier, so, fuck having sidewalks.

    * Big Oil: as if it were necessary to explain

  • facehead

    The composition of the photo is sublime. The two beloved companies, situated tightly in the foreground, reflect the deep inner paradox of being the former British colony that is America. For we all need the anus burger, do we not? But how must America arrive at the local anus burger dispensary? Human flight? Nay, by auto vehicular transportation, reifying our desire for foreign oil. Yet, how may we get this supposed ‘oil’? The American must betray their Deity-given right to drive-thru everything—by walking, as are the two hopeless slobs in the background, searching eternally for a way not to walk, right next to H&R Block, which assuredly has repossessed their home and children.

    [re=597679]thesheriffisnear[/re]: Getting OT here, but that whole thing never made sense to me, but Encyclopedia Dramatica (no link to spyware-infested site) finally made it make sense to me:

    The quote was an obvious rip-off of [chicken] producer Frank Perdue’s original catchphrase, “It takes a tough man to make a tender chicken”, which went badly wrong when Anastos tried to use it. The original Perdue campaign also generated unintentional lulz when the [Spanish] translation of their catchphrase ended up telling people, “It takes a hard man to get your ‘chicken’ aroused” (“polla” meaning ‘dick’ in Spanish). It’s pretty obvious that Anastos meant this version.
