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.

Firefighters are having a terrific week.

First, this guy proposed to his girlfriend as part of a fake fire drill, earning cheers from a stunned, captive audience.

Then, one of these heroes rescued a construction worker yesterday from a five-alarm fire in Houson, with the seriously incredible footage capture on video camera for all to gawk over.

Watch now to see how calm the worker appears to remain... how he impressively jumps down a floor... how the girl holding the camera phone reacts... and how the BUILDING STARTS TO COLLAPSE just moments after he reaches safety.

Amazing.

Is the Cock in a Sock meme, which seeks to promote testicular cancer awareness, the single greatest thing of all time on the web? That's up for debate.

There's a strong argument to be made, however, that this is the case.

After all, it involves men taking pictures of their penises in socks (while otherwise back ass naked) and posting them on the Internet with a hashtag.

The #cockinasock goal is to raise testicular cancer awareness. How can you not appreciate that? There's also a @cockinasock Instagram, which features ... well, this.

Scroll through 23 epic (borderline NSFW) cocks in socks below ...

SO Many Socks
So many guys are getting in on the Cock in a Sock trend for cancer awareness.

We'll say it again: If this is not the best hashtag in the history of hashtags, and for a good cause no less, this is not a planet we wanna be living on.

The Kim Kardashian-Kanye West Vogue cover continues to be a topic of discussion worldwide. People really cannot wrap their head around the fact that a reality star would ever be featured on so esteemed a fashion magazine. (Nevermind the fact that Kim and Kanye both have fashion lines...)

The latest to sound off? Naomi Campbell.

But she's a little more diplomatic and reserved in her response than Sarah Michelle Gellar was on Twitter when she threatened to cancel her subscription to the magazine.

When asked about the KimYe cover, Naomi Campbell declined to respond, eventually saying "I'm a fashion model and I've been working for 28 years."

"When you get a Vogue cover, it's a build in your career…. a stepping stone to achieve that."

That wasn't a good enough answer for the hosts of Australia's The Morning Show.

While Game of Thrones season 4 is about to kick off here in the U.S., much of the rest of the world is a season behind. A Belgian teacher used that to his advantage by threatening Game of Thrones spoilers on his classroom of unruly students if they didn't quiet down. 

The math teacher asked his class who watched Game of Thrones and when the majority said they did, he gave them an ultimatum:

Pay attention or he would reveal who died in Game of Thrones season 3 since he'd read the books.

The students tested him by refusing to quiet down, and he followed through, writing the name of a dead character on the board. Around 20 students sighed in resignation.

Listen up, teachers, and people who teach teachers how to be teachers. THIS IS HOW IT'S DONE, OKAY!?

Apparently last Thursday, March 20, was the International Day of Happiness.

That sounds awesome. Sorry we missed it, but guess what? It's not too late!

Is it ever not a good time to celebrate happiness? Not if you ask us, THGers. Since Pharrell's "Happy" blew up especially, being joyful is totally in.

With its tune and association with the minions from Despicable Me, the hit song is impossible to dislike, unless you're the type of person who also hates puppies.

In which case, we don't even want to know you honestly.

Anyways, in honor of the International Day of Happiness, here's a belated list of 20 things that make The Hollywood Gossip staff happy, day in and day out.

You're welcome, readers. You are welcome.

Pharrell's 'Happy' Music Video
If Pharrell's "Happy" music video doesn't live up to its name, we don't know what WILL put a smile on your face!

First a controversial Vogue cover and now he's making her a queen! Sort of. If being queen of a fast food dominion counts.

Kanye West gave Kim Kardashian 10 Burger King restaurants as a wedding present. Because nothing says "I Love You" like flame-broiled Whoppers.

Burger King tweeted the following spoof of the now infamous Vogue cover with the caption: "Vogue cover and 10 Buger Kings for a wedding present. #kimye #likeaking."

"She owns all the jewels anyone could ever want, so he is taking the practical route by investing in businesses for her instead," said an insider close to the couple.

"He knows the fast food industry is reliable and lucrative, plus BK is international, so he thinks it's the perfect fit for Kim."

Reeva Steenkamp, Oscar Pistorius' slain girlfriend, allegedly sent text messages conveying her fear of the Olympic sprinter charged with her murder.

Reeva Steenkamp, Oscar Pistorius

Oscar Pistorius' girlfriend told the South African athlete she was sometimes afraid of him, complaining that he had a short temper and was jealous.

All this in the weeks before he killed her in February 2013, according to phone messages revealed at the Oscar Pistorius murder trial on Monday.

"I'm scared of u sometimes and how u snap at me and of how u will react to me," Reeva Steenkamp texted him, police Capt. Francois Moller said.

In another message Steenkamp wrote: "I can't be attacked by outsiders for dating u AND be attacked by you, the one person I deserve protection from."

Moller said that from Steenkamp's phone he obtained more than 1,000 exchanges with Pistorius on WhatsApp and other phone messaging applications.

Moller cited as evidence two BlackBerry phones, two iPhones, two iPads and a Mac from Pistorius' house the day after he killed Reeva Steenkamp.

Authorities are searching for bodies after a massive mudslide in Washington State killed at least eight people and possibly left more than 100 missing.

A 1-square-mile mudslide struck Saturday morning in Snohomish County, critically injuring several people and destroying about 30 several homes.

John Pennington, emergency response managing director, said there are reports of up to 108 missing in the mudslide but noted that this is unconfirmed.

Eight bodies have been pulled from the scene so far and authorities described the search for additional survivors of the mudslide to be "grim."

"This is a large scale disaster event," Pennington told the media.

"We have 108 individual names, or likeness ... It’s a soft 108."

Malaysia Prime Minister Najib Razak said on Monday that the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 crashed into the Indian Ocean west of Perth, Australia.

The head of state said the families of the 239 people on the flight, missing since March 8 in one of the great aviation mysteries of all time, have been informed.

The announcement narrowed the search area but left many questions unanswered about why the Boeing 777 flew to such a remote part of the world.

Experts previously believed that the jet could have flown north instead, toward Central Asia, but the new data showed that it could have gone only south.

The commercial flight, with 227 passengers and 12 crew members, was headed from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing when it disappeared on March 8.

The aircraft’s last known position, according to the analysis, “is a remote location, far from any possible landing sites,” Mr. Najib said in his address.

“It is therefore with deep sadness and regret that I must inform you that, according to this new data, Flight MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean.”
