Have Macca’s Gone Porn?

Secret Fish Fantasy?  Who the fuck has fantasies about fish except maybe seals or the odd mermaid? 

And if there ARE people out there who get turned on over the thought of a Birds Eye Fish Finger, I don’t think [1] I want to know [2] want to be in a restaurant with them.

I even looked on the internet to see if there was some weird fish-fetish-group and I couldn’t find any [though I must admit I didn’t look too long] so I have to ask why Macca’s would create a poster that sounds sooooooo wrong in sooooooo many ways.

Sure, if they have decided to switch strategies from Family Restaurant to ‘Adult’ meeting place then fine … however if they’re not, this poster makes their Fillet Of Fish about as appetising as this pastie from my local Starbucks …

Disgusting eh?  Well at least they didn’t give it a name that tried to con you into thinking it was something it wasn’t …

Pretty accurate name I’m sure you’ll agree.

Macca’s you have alot to learn interms of naming – which begs the question, why isn’t it a McFillet Of McFish?

you wanna know what the target for that fish fantasy/ocean going deep crap is? 14 year-old boys.

and i love that description of that ‘pastry’!

Only days on a Media Temp agencies books and you’re already doing sexual-based gender generalisations. You need to work in adland – especially a media agency, ha!

Comment by Rob

i’ll gladly be doing generalisations like that about maccas ads until the day i die 🙂

Comment by lauren

what the fuck were you doing in macs mr im getting fit and healthy? and that ugly chicken puff would be much funnier if it was a photo of freddie mercury in a chicken suit; but then starfucks dont do comedy other than those crap coffee flavours they do in asia.

I’m sure all little fishy’s grow up with the fantasy of some day being compressed into a little fishy patty and shoved down some fat person’s gob.

I’m a quarter pounder man myself, I feel less guilty eating that cause I know there’s not a trace of fucking meat in it.

Comment by Age

Actually Andy, Jill dragged me in there so for once I am guilt free. Pleasant change eh!

And Age, if God didn’t mean us to eat meat, he wouldn’t have made it taste so bloody good!

Comment by Rob

Fucken Amen!

looks like cousin Bob has struck again.
Morning [the darkest of moods today]

Comment by Marcus

Don’t worry Marcus, I think my next post will make you smile. Or reach for your cheque book!

Comment by Rob

I don’t have a check book. Trust me, it better be really fucking good to make me smile today.

Comment by Marcus

It is rather extravagent naming there…

Even if people did have a fantasy about tasty fish, I can bet they didnt dream about it being in McDonalds!

Comment by Rob Mortimer

So that’s what Ariel, Sebastian and Flounder have been turned into is it? A burger. Nice.

The description of the burger made me laugh out loud. 🙂

And it highlights how damn hard it is to photograph food.

ZING! Rob M shoots. He scores.

‘I hope your plan doesn’t extend to living under the sea’.

A popular karaoke song would have to be Octopus’s garden if a) I’m drunk and b) In a karaoke bar. Happily, the two haven’t happened….yet.

Comment by Will

Give it time 😉

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Other notable things ‘under the sea’ could be Splash (the birth of Tom Hanks’s career).. or… errr.. Master & Commander And The Far Side of The World.

The latter’s title was far too long. I’d have called it ‘Boats. With Russell Crowe’.

Comment by Will

I love my blog … even though the ‘my’ part of that statement is very small indeed.

Go Rob … Go Will … talk in your alternate language of communication …

Comment by Rob

You should be happy. My blog gets fuck all comments (perhaps because I don’t write about dubious burgers and penis’s).

Any thoughts on underwater comms, Rob?

Comment by Will

Russell Crowe’s Fighting Round The World!
Love that episode…

Comment by Rob Mortimer

I have another thing ‘under the sea’ … my career.

It might not be quite there yet, but it’s certainly on its way down … especially if I don’t do the bloody presentation I have ignored [or more correctly, just looked at and done nothing with] for the past 6 days!

Comment by Rob

IIII commented on it yesterday!
Mine has been quiet for days!

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Fine Rob M. You’ve guilted me into not just lurking. I will comment, don’t you worry.

And Russell Crowe’s fighting round the world is indeed genius. The man’s been in several of my favourite films – including LA Confidential, the current number 1.

Comment by Will

Why aren’t people commenting on your blogs?

BECAUSE YOU WRITE CLEVER, SENSIBLE THINGS AND DON’T FEATURE IDEAS REGARDING BIG COCKS.

I am The Sun of the planning blogging community, ha!

[PS: I actually read all your blogs, quite often in the taxi to/from work … I just can’t actually post because of my stupid software. Just want you to know you are loved really!]

Comment by Rob

Hurrah!

Spot the relevance of this comment:

*…It also says that by the year 2050 man will have an extra finger… Ew, five fingers? Freak show!*

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Haha! Thanks

Did you get all of my email yesterday, or just the bit about NP?

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Got it in one Mr M. Don’t make me post a rebuttal before I fuck off to Islington.. because I will bring the Simpsons quote pain..

Comment by Will

I feel loved Rob. Don’t you worry. Even if it is just drawing a face on my left hand and speaking in a high pitched voice.

She’s called Wendy, for your information.

Comment by Will

Haha, not J-Lo?
“I love you Ben….EWWW!”

Bring it Will!!! 😉

Comment by Rob Mortimer

you all make me feel old.

Comment by Marcus

Hi Rob … I actually only got the NP bit, but then today I found the other, full email, so it all makes much more sense now, ha!

And can I just go on record that I love Cartman – he [along with Auf Wiedersen Pet and the rest of SOUTH PARK] have been responsible for getting more of our creative approved than research companies. As far as I am concerned, Cartman should be President – he’d be less screwed than the current incumbent!

Comment by Rob

Haha! As long as you werent upset about the first bit 😉 !

South Park is genius. Both more stupid AND more clever than any other cartoon ever.

Comment by Rob Mortimer

As for that ad.. ‘I’d have called ’em chuzzwozzahs’

Rob M – you aren’t not a communist. You may be a liar, a pig, an idiot, a communist, but you aren’t a porn star.

🙂

Comment by Will

Consider the pain brought.

Comment by Will

‘I see youve played Knifey Spooney before…’

‘No HomerS, we’re allowed one…*chuckle*’

ZING!

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Will is not a man, he is a remorseless eating machine…

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Rob – we’re going to ask you a few simple questions. Do you understand?

*Lie detector blows up*

OR:

‘When I stamp my foot, and say Hello Mr Thompson, you will say hello.’

‘Hello Mr Thompson’.

‘I think he’s talking to you…’

Enough of this – need to git my arse round to Islington.
