Beyonce’s Half-Time Show Through the Eyes of Kids

Bus Stop Comics Beyonce Half-Time Show

Like millions of other people all across the world I tuned in to the Super Bowl on Sunday night to see a game that promised to be a great one. And both teams certainly delivered. I’m not a fan of either the Ravens or the 49ers but they put on a good show nonetheless.

Once half-time rolled around I was very glad that the kids were already in bed. There was no reason for them to watch the spectacle of gyrating dancers on that stage. Aside from that, I am amazed that any fans of music enjoyed what was taking place. Beyonce would sing a few lines of each song and then delve into a ridiculous set of choreographed dance moves. Maybe next year’s half-time show will be better. Or maybe it will give me material for another comic strip.

Sometimes Life is Giant Snowball

Sometimes life is like a giant snowball chasing you down a hill. Running in a straight line will eventually get you squished. Choose a new path and get out of the way of that giant snowball and begin your climb up the hill of life again.

Make War Not Friends

The most popular free book on the Kindle store is The Art of War…in the Self-Help section. More popular in fact than How To Win Friends and Influence People. Which is because learning how to make war is free while it’ll cost you almost $13 to learn how to win friends.

My guess is that many of the people who purchased How To Win Friends and Influence People have given up in frustration and have now gone with The Art of War. This will not end well.

McDonald’s To Introduce Infant Formula

McDonalds McFormula Infant FormulaMcDonald’s has announced plans to introduce its own brand of infant formula at McDonald’s locations across the country starting in April. Initially the formula will be available in two flavors, “McNugget Flavor” and “Big Mac Flavor” with plans to introduce more flavors in the future.

A press release from McDonald’s relayed the corporation’s excitement about this new product line:

“At McDonald’s we’ve always been a company that has striven to include the whole family in our meal offerings but one family segment had always been left out, until now. Introducing McFormula, the all new infant formula from McDonald’s.

McFormula offers babies a flavor filled meal so that they can enjoy the McDonald’s experience like the rest of the family and mom and dad can feel confident that their child is receiving nutrition that meets all FDA guidelines.”

Parent groups have raised concerns over what they consider McDonald’s attempt to get kids addicted to fast food at an even earlier age than before. At a time when childhood obesity is at an all time high, their concerns resonated with the FDA at least for awhile.

McFormula BabyThe FDA was reluctant to approve McFormula for sale and were heavily lobbied by both sides. An FDA official speaking on condition of anonymity said, “Our biggest concern was the flavorings and artificial coloring that McDonald’s chose to add to its line of infant formulas. Those type of ingredients have traditionally not been allowed in products like this.”

Eventually though McDonald’s was able to win approval from the FDA. Their decision cited hard economic times as a reason for approving this low cost formula for sale. McDonald’s did have to make one concession however in order to win approval. The FDA would not allow the product to be sold only at McDonald’s locations because parents would not have access to the same formula when away from a McDonald’s restaurant. Trying to switch your child’s formula can sometimes produce an upset stomach and a picky eater.

In an effort to comply with the FDA’s decision, starting in June, McFormula will be on grocery store shelves in over 1,500 stores across the country and the company stated that it hopes to expand that to more than 4,000 stores by the end of the summer.

Sales at the fast food giant have been stagnant for the last few years and this is obviously an attempt at tapping into a market segment that has been largely untouched by the fast food industry until now. So will McFormula succeed? If the 2.5 Million Happy Meals they sell every year is any indication then yes, you can expect McFormula to be very successful.
