    Fatboy Ronald McDonald downsizes to head off critics

    Ronald McDonald is getting a makeover.

    A slimmer, fitter-looking spokesman for the world's largest fast-food chain is set to make his debut in a global advertising campaign to be launched later this week. In the television commercials, he is swapping the clown outfit for a tracksuit (yellow and red, of course) and seen coaxing children off the couch and outdoors to play football, ride bikes and snowboard.

    Does this clown outfit make me look fat?

    I guess putting Ronald in a track suit is cheaper than overhauling your menu.
    Makes all the routine posts.

    Silliness... Ronald running track. As far as I am concerned though.... no one forces anyone to spend their money at McD's and put that crap into their system. Or Burger King, Wendy's, Long John Silver's, etc.

    Perhaps Gov. Bob Tax will create a sin-tax on fastfood in Ohio? About the only thing he hasn't taxed in these parts lately.
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    Citing frustration over the inability to get his hip-hop self taken seriously, Ronald McDonald points to his future on a 50-foot treadmill made of french fries.
