Here's Your Answer, Clara Peller

Have you ever looked closely at the logo for Arby's? I'd never eaten there before, but I did a few weeks ago because there is one right next to my work. Something bothered me about the logo, but I couldn't put my finger on it. Now it's all too clear.

Upon further inspection, it appears that Arby is VERY excited to have us taste his beef.

Ahahahhahaaa

and they shamelessly allude to it in their new ad - the dude that gets his wife to dress up in the Arby's uniform, and then the logo sproings into action above his head!

Oh my-- Aww. Did you have to point that out? That is one of the few fast food restaurants that has passable food.

Falwless said...

Just don't start going there enough that the drive-thru window guy recognizes you and ends the transaction with, "See you soon."

Not that that's ever happened to me or anything.

Cora said...

Ha ha ha! My God, you're right! I don't eat there either so I never noticed that before. If I ever eat there I'll be sure to bring my lava lamp. ;-)

The only thing Arby's has that would get my non-existent penis hard is their awesome curly fries. Everything else is shit.

Every time I think or hear of Arby's, I'm always reminded of that Simpsons episode where the kids all end up on a deserted island, and they're sitting around talking about how hungry they are. One kid says, "I'm so hungry I could eat a (whatever)," and down the line until Lisa says, "I'm so hungry I could eat at Arby's" and everyone gasps in amazement. As Homer would say, it's funny because it's true.

Cora said...

And HILARIOUS title by the way!! Hee hee.

the iNDefatigable mjenks said...

Well done on the title. She's applauding you from has-been tagline heaven.

Also...kind puts a damper on wanting to smear "horsey sauce" on everything now, doesn't it?

Gwen said...

Niiiice. I prefer The Choice (Lion's Choice, home of the horsey sauce mjenks references above) to Arbys. I couldn't even eat it hung over at Homecoming last year. That's bad.

I'll never look at their commercials in the same way again.

words words words said...

Beckeye: That's the exact same thing I think of whenever I think of Arby's. I don't share Sherri and Terri's abject horror at the concept of eating at Arby's, but it wasn't great. I can't see it supplanting Del Taco or Carl's Jr. when I want a fast food fix.

Peggy said...

Wow...never noticed that before. Kinda gross but hilarious!

Kimizzy said...

Well, you have to give them a couple points on originality and creativity. It kind of makes me like Arby's a little bit now. If only the food wasn't disgusting... hmmm.

Reservoir tip!

Is Clara Peller the "Where's the Beef" lady? If so, why do you know her name?

words words words said...

Fal: I saw a framed picture of you in the Arby's I was at. That must have been before you had the monkey.

mjenks: As long as someone is making horse sex jokes in my blog, I am not the most depraved one here. Good show.

Red: Yes, she is. And because I'm awesomer than you.

This isn't about a sandwich is it?

Rebecca said...

You and your homoerotic tendencies.

Catherinette Singleton said...

That's freaking HIGH-LARIOUS!!

I had to stare at the picture for about 2 minutes before it came to me (so to speak)...

Nej said...

Huh? What? I don't.....ooooohhh!!

You just had to point that out, didn't you?

miss amy said...

I will never look at that sign the same way again.

Whoever designed that logo must have just finished watching "A Clockwork Orange".
