7345: Food, Fools And Fun.
Friday bits in a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• MTV will air a public service announcement after an upcoming episode of “Jersey Shore,” as the show depicts a scene with a female cast member being assaulted. The PSA will address the issue of violence against women. So far, the reality TV series has drawn criticism for perpetuating negative stereotypes of Italian Americans and now violence against women. They are one obscenity short of a trifecta.
• Mickey D’s announced it is responding to tough economic times by offering $1 menu items for breakfast. The items will probably be jelly packets and napkins.
• Rush Limbaugh declared that U.S. Blacks are not happy, thanks to President Obama and Tiger Woods. “The Black frame of mind is terrible. They’re depressed. They’re down — Obama’s not doing anything for ‘em. How is that hoax and change workin’ for ya? They’re all livid,” said Limbaugh. Blacks feel “upset” and “abandoned” by Obama and, Limbaugh added, “I’m sure Tiger Woods’ choice of females [is] not helping ‘em out with their attitudes there, either.” Yes, but Limbaugh doesn’t realize those things have been completely offset by the introduction of $1 breakfast menu items at Mickey D’s. Yippee!
