TGIF

The local McDonald's are now offering a half-price Filet-O-Fish on Friday's. Whenever I see this kind of promotion, I always wonder if it kills the business the rest of the week. Let's say you feel like a Filet-O-Fish on Thursday but then realize if you just wait a day, you can have it and save some money.

I realize the prices are already pretty low, but people are drawn in by these deals.

Forget the fish, I still remember when you could get two hamburgers, fries and a coke and still get change for your dollar.

Isn't this a Lent-related thing?

Yes, I think Irene's got it right. Now bring back the McRib, aka the McDonald's Slider, because you crave them then immediately regret it.

It may be Lent-related to you, but it's rent-related to me.

What's the neighborhood? The BK near Microsoft, whose owners were Hispanic, had a deal like this during Lent.

Actually, the Catholic Church never abolished "meatless Fridays" year-round. They simply said that no meat on Fridays would remain mandatory in Lent, but merely "recommended" on other Fridays. Immediately, 99.999% of American Catholics, who complain that their church is too rule-based, chose the minimalist interpretation of this, proving that they think that the Church's traditions have more to do with the bishops than with their grandmothers. Which is, I think, a real problem, but that's another story.

When I was a kid, the L.A. city elementary schools still had fish sticks every Friday. I suspect that's obsolete now. Heck, elementary school lunches with no entree options may be obsolete now. The kids probably want CHOICE in their food. Or at least the 10% who can stop text-messaging long enough to eat lunch.
