Even Ronald McDonald digs the Taco Bell breakfast menu. Or at least 25 guys whose real names just happen to be Ronald McDonald are loving it.

Said guys are featured in a new ad that extols, at the expense of McDonald's, the Mexican fast-food chain's new breakfast program, which starts Thursday.

The ad begins with a narrator offering: "To show you just how much people are loving Taco Bell's all new breakfast, we asked some very special people."

Next, a handful of folks introduce themselves one-by-one, as Ronald McDonald. Each, of course, is a big fan of the new Taco Bell breakfast menu.

The ad ends with the group of 25 Rons seated together all saying unison: "My name is Ronald McDonald, and I love Taco Bell's new breakfast."

The ad, created by the agency Deutsch L.A., ends with the narrator stating the tagline: "Breakfast anybody can love ... even Ronald McDonald."

While the great ad has a big smile factor, there's nothing funny about the on-going fast food wars, with the Bell going hard after McDonald's market share.

Catholic League president Bill Donohue will not be raising a pint of Guinness in honor of St. Patrick’s Day this week.

With Sam Adams, Guinness, and Heineken all having opted NOT to sponsor the St. Patrick’s Day parades in New York and Boston this week - because those in charge barred LGBT groups from participating - Donohue has called for a boycott of all three companies.

“None of these companies believe in diversity,” Donohue wrote on the Catholic League website, not trying to be ironic.

Yummy Guinness

"No gay person has ever been barred from marching in any St. Patrick’s Day parade, anymore than the parade bans pro-life Catholics or vegetarian Catholics," he added.

"They simply cannot march under their own banner. The parade has one cause: honoring St. Patrick. Those who disagree do not have to march - that’s what diversity is all about."

The brilliant people at Oscar Mayer have out-brillianted themselves.

They figured the one sure way to get people out of bed in the morning is with the sound - and smell - of bacon cooking. Because if there is one thing Americans love more than sleep, it's bacon.

Bacon Alarm Clock

They've invented a small device that plugs into the headphone jack of your iPhone and interacts with their free bacon-sound alarm clock app.

When your alarm goes off, you'll not only hear bacon sizzling, you'll also smell it. With your nose! For real!

Unfortunately for us, you cannot buy this amazing device. You have to go to their new Wake Up And Smell The Bacon website between now and April 4, 2014 and sign up for a chance to receive one.

(To research this post I obviously had to apply. I'm sad to report I didn't win one... yet. Although I swear I can already smell bacon cooking after writing the word "bacon" so many times.)

WARNING: You will never look at Cheetos the same way after reading this post.

Simply put, a Reddit user named "stephthehobbit" has posted a photo online of a Cheeto that looks very much like a man pleasuring himself.

That's right: the dog's butthole that resembles Jesus Christ is no longer the most random lookalike on the Internet, people!

Very Dirty Cheeto

This is either real.. or the work of a creator who deserves a spot in the Photoshop Hall of Fame.

Late last year, chef Keith Guehrke appeared on a number of morning talk shows across the midwest.

He described himself as an "unorthodox, self-taught" guru in the kitchen who dropped such nuggets of knowledge on various hosts as:

"There's a statistic that around the holidays, especially between Thanksgiving and Christmas, it's one of the highest suicide rates and I think part of that is the stress of, What are you going to do with these leftovers?"

Seems a bit far-fetched, doesn't it?

That's because chef Keith Guehrke doesn't exist.

It's come out that the man who convinced anchors to try such concoctions as gravy ice cream and/or pumpkin pie smoothies was Nick Prueher, the founder of a site called the Found Footage Festival.

Looks like somebody didn't have a happy meal. 

A man from Pacoima, California is suing McDonald's for 1.5 million dollars. Why, you might ask?

The fast food giant only gave him ONE napkin. 

Shocking, right?

Ronald McDonalds

Webster Lucas, who ordered a Quarter Pounder Deluxe at the restaurant, alleges that when he asked for more napkins he was denied.

In a new People cover story, Paula Deen says she learned a lot from last year's scandal, and empathizes with others caught up in similar ordeals.

At the same time, she can't help but wonder if she got a raw deal.

Paula Deen People Cover

In 2013, the Food Network dropped the celebrity chef after she admitted in a lawsuit deposition that she used a racial slur a "very long time ago."

The TV star subsequently lost a number of endorsement deals. Though Paula Deen apologized on Today, the backlash made it difficult for her.

In general. To do anything.

"When I woke up each morning, it was like my world was crashing down again," the Georgia native, 67, recalls. "Some people said I never apologized."
