GIVING YOU THE BIRD (of the week)
Fourth quarter begins...
And more Broncos are falling by the wayside, what the heck is going on here?
Okay Burger King, I really don't care what people that have never tried a Whopper or a Big Mac think of each sandwich. Sorry, it's just not going to matter to me, or most Americans, in my opinion. I mean most Americans (myself included) shouldn't be eating them anyway, right. Plus, I imagine that they will have chosen the Whopper, considering the commercials are sponsored by Burger King.

Christopher Jamison, the Abbot of Worth in West Sussex, has accused the corporation of "exploiting spirituality" to sell its products and of turning Disneyland into a modern day pilgrimage site.
