Welcome MSNBC.com Readers

I thank you for joining us. Please check your weapons. Unless it's a trident. Those are cool.

Regulars, I know you woke this morning all, "What if I live my entire life not having seen the World's Largest McDonald's? Either of them?"

Robin Williams, ho! at: mb@blondechampagne.com

If I am not mistaken, I believe the honor of having the largest McDonald's was once held by a small(ish) town in NE Ohio in the mid-90's.
Yeah, I'll admit it...I've been there.

Rick said...

As a former native and sometime visitor of NE Ohio, I'm curious to know which small(ish) town had that honor. I need to know!

Mini T said...

Oh you have the infomercial collection of exercise equipment as well. Mine is currently being used as either places to drape clothes or dust collection sites.

Ophelia said...

Hey Rick - the McD's I was referring to was in Warren, Ohio.
My family hails from that part of the state.
Where part of OH are you from?

Someone needs to make these movies stop. And fast. Best Buy now stocks all of the television show DVDs immediately behind the new DVD releases, instead of movies.

It's nice to read a sample of your amazing wit first thing in the morning.

I can't wait for summer. I really want to see what you have to say about all those highly anticipated movies that are coming out. X-Men and Superman and Pirates, oh my!

Well, all I have to say is that if you touch just one of Storm/Halle Berry's beautiful silver hair that will really make me mad ;-)

You can criticize Sir Ian Mckellen in Da Vinci Code, but not as Magneto ok?

I hope this movie hits huge. Not because I think it will be particularly good, but just because I like one city over from the RV CAPITAL OF THE WORLD!! and every little bit helps sell those big lummoxes when gas is a dollar per droplet.

"Claw, bite and sting", lol. Even koalas partly fit that category, it must be said. Despite their reputation as cute 'n' cuddly litte creatures, they're actually quite bitey little buggars with a predilection towards ill-advised sex and syphilis.

As for Russell Crowe ... pffft. We don't like him either. Shoo him away to other countries whenever the opportunity arises, we do.

The last time I was on a plane, the stewardess flung a packet of peanuts at me that read “MAY CONTAIN PEANUTS,” but I complained little, for I was simply glad to be in the air after a delay described at the gate as “due to some missing equipment.” The missing equipment? The plane.

This made me laugh out loud. You really have a gift with words, MB. You're an excellent writer.

The last major road trip I remember was from Milwaukee, WI to Miami Beach, FL. I was six, and got sick easily.

So, naturally, in Florida I contracted some sort of bug/virus. I spent the whole trip (a bowling tournament for my dad, because we too were a cutting-edge family) under the weather.

On the ride home, I got worse. To the point of severe dehydration. Imagine being stuck in rush hour traffic in Chicago with a four-year-old and a puking six-year old. When we did get home, I went to the hospital. And received stickers for all my trouble

splog again?? ughh!

But as someone said once, that means the traffic in this blog has increased considerably. Congrats MB!

Hey, I went to the world's largest McDonald's when it was the one in Warren, Ohio as well. It was the very late 80's or very early 90's when I went there, if I'm not mistaken. Sad, but at the time I thought it was pretty cool. (C'mon people, I was in grade school!!)

"I am the World's Largest McDonald's!"

"No, *I* am the World's Largest McDonald's!"

This requires a movie.

Without much luck, I was searching for blogs about Business & Industrial when I happened across yours. It's a cool blog. Evidently you like telling it like it is! I have a really great ebay website that is easy to use that you may like. If you get a chance, check it out www.licensedbrandsclub.com.
