James Corden Rants Against McDonald’s All-Day Breakfast: ‘I Can’t Be Trusted with 24/7 McMuffin Access’

James Corden may love McDonald’s breakfast, but he hates that it’s now available all day.

“We may have gained all-day breakfast, but we lost the thrill of showing up at McDonald’s just before they stop serving it,” the Late Late Show host said in a tirade Monday night. “Nothing can replace ordering a McGriddle at 10:29, then watching a guy who didn’t wake up in time settle for chicken nuggets.”

Not only does Corden miss the thrill of the chase, but he, quite frankly, can’t handle being able to order breakfast foods at all hours of the day.

“I can’t be trusted with 24/7 McMuffin access,” he said. “I am not a strong enough man.”

Sometimes when you really love something, you have to let it go. For Corden, that means begging McDonald’s to cancel their all-day policy (which would break hearts across the nation.)

“McDonald’s breakfast is one of the best things on the planet, but it has a time and a place. Its time is before 11 a.m. and its place … I’m not telling you because I don’t want you to ever see me eating it.”

We see where Corden is coming from … but now that 7:30 p.m. Egg McMuffins are part of our lives, we could never give them up.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

I’m with him. There are 2 McD’s within 2 miles of where I live and I hadn’t been to either one in over a year. There are just too many other places close by to eat. Until Breakfast 24/7 came along. Now I know McD’s stock jumped last quarter because I can now buy a bacon,egg,cheese biscuit ANYTIME I want it. (Doing the happy dance.) And the crew on the drive-thru windows are starting to recognize me. That’s how much I go to McD’s now.

I was thinking of starting a blog so I did some research into it on the internet and came across a lot of stuff that talks about legal issues and blogging. I’m not planning on blogging about controversial issues, (my blog would focus on posts about books, movies, culture, theater, music etc, and all material would be solely my own opinions) so what legal issues are involved with blogging? . Should I write a copyright disclaimer or are blog disclaimers actually worthless?.
