THE EXISTENTIAL LENS: Wake Up with Wendy

Really? I’ll admit I’ve had fantasies about waking up with Wendy. But I thought there was something wrong with me. Now Wendy’s is encouraging it! Is this a Freudian slip, or are they stooping to pedologophilia* as a marketing ploy? (Would the late Dave Thomas approve of whoring out the cartoon image of his daughter, in order to sell breakfast burritos? Maybe he would, since he didn’t mind turning her into a corporate logo. Isn’t the whole franchise built on Wendy's freckle-faced, pigtailed charm?) Not that it has to be sexual, but I sure wouldn’t mind seeing that adorable redheaded first thing in the morning, serving me a sausage and egg biscuit in bed…aaaah!

*pedologophilia: n., (psychology) the love of children, especially cute drawings of, as depicted in company logos.

THE EXISTENTIAL LENS: FedEx Koan

Fedex stands for Federal Express, right? So this means Federal Express Express. Does that mean it’s faster than regular Fedex? Or that it's not federal? Is it federal? Maybe this is some kind of Zen koan demonstrating the limits of human logic. Yeah, that’s what it is…my mind is short-circuiting and spinning into emptiness. Fedex Express. What can it mean? I’ll never know, and knowing is not the point. It means nothing...and everything. Whoa! Now I feel at peace, released from all burdens, in touch with the ultimate reality. I think I’m enlightened! Thank you, Fedex Express, for delivering me to Nirvana.
