5504: Keep Your Eyes On Your Pies.
Switching schedules with a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• Mickey D’s CEO Jim Skinner told shareholders that the fast food joint’s fries are no longer cooked in trans-fat oils. The official swap was allegedly made months ago, although the company opted not to advertise the change. “While we don’t plan to advertise these changes, we wanted [shareholders] to be the first to know that we have followed through on our commitment while keeping the same great taste that our customers expect from McDonald’s,” said Skinner. However, Mickey D’s is still working on removing trans fats from its cookies and pies. Because, by golly, it’s imperative that they keep the same great lack of taste that customers expect from those items too.
• A federal judge ruled that Wesley Snipes won’t have to report to jail on June 3 as scheduled, and can remain free pending his appeal. Which means the actor still has time to enjoy Mickey D’s cookies and pies before the products change.
