chew on what?

I am curious what fact has stuck with you from the chapter we read the other day. Please comment me and tell me (in complete sentences). The fact that stuck with me was the way marketing researchers will pay kids to go to sleepovers and ask them questions late into the night. Creepy!

The thing that stuck in my head from the chapter we have just read was probably the fact that Ronald McDonald's nemesis was Mr. Muscle.

The thing that stuck in my mind was that people will do anything to see what kids want.Like they will pay kids to go in a group and tell wat they like to eat.

The fact that stuck with me the most was the way the marketing people payed the kids to go to sleepovers and in the middle of the night the reasearcher people asked them questions.

The thing that stuck with me was how part of the chapter foucused on Walt Disney. I have lost all respect and hope for the man, all I can think about is how he didn't do half of the things that has made his name famous. It seemed that he was just another buisness guy :(
And Mickey Mouse isn't even that cute! No offense, but Ha!! Don't you think Pluto is a much cuter mascot?! I do. :)

THey thing that stuck to me the most was that they took then into some BRAIN thing and looked at your brain to see what they think or react to commericals. That's what stuck to me the most.

The one thing that I can't get out of my head is the seven nags. When I was reading that, I started remembering when I've seen little kids doing those things in stores. Then I remembered when I did those things, I still do!

Paul Rapisardo said...

The thing from the chapter that's still in my head from the chapter is that Ronald's enemy Mr. Muscle, wanted to steal food that will make him fat.

The thingy that stuck on my mind the most was McDonaldsland because it was half the packet.

Erin Farrell said...

I liked this little book thing, but i'm thinking the most memorable fact about the story was Ronald Mcdonald! (the villian mr. muscle was cool too)

erica krull said...

I mostly remember that Ronald Mcdonald used to be a fat clown named bozo!

Ellie Lorenz said...

THE THiNG THAT STUCK OUT THE MOST WAS MR. MUSCLE. HE STUCK OUT BECAUSE MCDONALDS MAKES YOU FAT AND RONALD WAS FiGHTiNG MR. MUSCLE. iT WAS VERY iRONiC.
