The slogan "Eat Like You Mean It" is everything wrong with this country.
I dunno, I always eat like I mean it, because I eat if I'm hungry. A more American version would be "Eat Because You Can" or "Because It's There."
"Eat because you're bored"
then you eat because you're drunk
thus, you ate because you're bored.
I'm actually never hungry when I drink, but I don't get drunk, at least not since college. The worst is getting wasted and deciding two slices of pizza AND a Q'doba burrito at 3 in the morning is a great idea. You still wake up with a hangover and a feeling of being full and hungry and wanting to puke all at the same time.

Oh well, for all of my Bill Hicks-ian cynicism when it comes to marketing and selling out on any level, I must remind myself that the Simpsons was in its prime during "Don't lay a finger on my Butterfinger."
Also they snuck in an ad for Nintendo 3DS right into the show. And by "snuck" I mean whatever the opposite of "snuck" is.
this is perfect, carls jr burgers really are messy sloppy drippy flavorant-stanking piles of cow manure
This does not make me want to eat at Carl's Jr.

"They're stealin' stuff, Rick! They're stealin stuff!"
We are in a new golden age of advertising.
My stars are for "Cronenburgers" which I hope has a future
"Cronenburgers," if you have more than one mouth.

I haven't been to a Hardee's in a good decade since I lived in the Midwest. I remember the same star logo but the menu was different. I was on the road so I didn't have much choice, but they had a surprisingly good veggie burger. So I got down south to enter Carl's Jr. Territory and they didn't have any veggie options :(
Come to SoCal, I believe they have the veggie burger over here.
We have Carl's Jr in Oregon too, there's actually one a couple blocks from my house, but I usually stick to Burgerville, which is sort of Oregon's In-n-Out, if I need to get fast food. Their black bean burger's great, but they print out nutrition facts right on the receipt: it's kind of sad when you read that your veggie option has more calories and fat than a Big Mac.
But still half the calories of the Tex Mex burger, Jesus H. 1200 calories! And from their website the only veggie "burger" I see is just a shitload of guacamole and cheese inside a bun. I used to eat at Carl's Jr. all the time when I was a kid. It was before the quirky/ironic TV spots but they always just advertised the food instead of gimmicks. And I was a little porker despite being on nearly every sports team imaginable. But goddamn their fries are the best thing ever.
And that settles it: I'm marching over to CJs and getting an order of fries and I'm making poutine with my leftover veggie gravy from thanksgiving!
This is great. Make money.
Also, I just noticed Morty's plumbus.
