McDonald’s Is Removing Hi-C From Their Menu

McDonald’s has had Hi-C as a drink option for as long as I can remember.  Probably back to the Arch Deluxe days.  MAYBE even back to the McDLT days.

But that’s all over now.  A company memo just leaked that revealed they’re getting rid of Hi-C Orange Lavaburst this July after decades of having it on the menu.  They’re replacing it with a new drink called Sprite TropicBerry.

Naturally, there are people on social media who are outraged, because that’s what people on social media do.  I guess from now on, they’ll just have to get their Hi-C orange drink at the grocery store, like a caveman.

The Ten Worst Jobs . . .

  CareerCast.com released its annual list of the worst jobs in America.  And newspaper reporter is #1 for the fourth year in a row.  That isn’t a statement on the LAME-STREAM media.  The whole industry is just in trouble right now.

 

1.  Newspaper reporter.

2.  TV broadcaster.

3.  Logger.

4.  Enlisted military personnel, mostly because of how dangerous it is.

5.  Pest control worker.

6.  Disc jockey . . . I promise you do NOT envy our schedule.  Also, the correct term is “radio personality.”  Thank you.

7.  Ad sales.

8.  Firefighter.

9.  Retail sales.

10.  Taxi driver.

Ringling Brothers’ Final Circus Is Just a Few Weeks Away

As you may’ve heard back in January, the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey circus is shutting down after 146 years because ticket sales have bottomed out.  Their final show is this month . . . on the 21st, in Uniondale, New York.

So if you want to get one last look, this is your chance . . . because an American institution is about to end.

And it really IS an institution:  It’s older than Major League Baseball, and there have been more U.S. presidents than Ringling Bros. ringmasters.
