two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, jesus

one of my oft-read blogs,, lead me to this little gem.

A recent press release, done in conjunction with a new movie coming out about the Ten Commandments, did a bit of market research.

This amazingly awesome testament to American living revealed that more Americans can list the ingredients of a McDonald's Big Mac than the Ten Commandments.

Guilty as charged!

In a moment of tooting a horn that no one cares to hear, Ron Wexler, Mr Prez of the Ten Commandments Commission explained "Knowing and living the Ten Commandments empowers people and feeds their souls, while knowing the contents of a famous hambuger, at most, only feeds the stomach."

Thanks Wexy, but knowing the Ten Commandments feeds my soul about as much as knowing the colors of the rainbow. While living them may empower and feed some souls, perhaps some find solace in the 540 calorie-punchin' Mac-tastic.

The moral of the story, my friends, is that advertising is the shiznit.

If it weren't for that damn catchy jingle about the ingredients of a Big Mac, I probably wouldn't know them. Perhaps the Ten Commandments, the aforementioned "soul food," should be jingle-d.

Wicky wicky REMIX!@!!

Oddly, the Ten Commandments feed my stomach and the Big Mac feeds my soul. Though, honestly, I could probably name more commandments than ingredients.

Either way I prefer pizza.
