Ronald McDonald to become "health ambassador"

In an effort to appear to consider to attempt to address the child obesity issue, McDonald's is sending Ronald McDonald into elementary schools to push fitness. So now McDonald's "chief happiness officer" will also be the company's "ambassador for an active, balanced lifestyle," says McDonald's Chief Creative Officer, Marlena Peleo-Lazar.

Can't you see Ronald doing his best Richard Simmons impersonation while wearing a clown costume, his painted simpering grin barely concealing his contempt for his lame, pointless, meaningless, dead-end job?

Think this has anything to with the recently reinstated lawsuit against McDonald's in which two New York teenagers claimed they became fat because the company concealed the health risks of its food?

Nah...
