Item 1: A Kroger commercial. "Shop Kroger for all your Lenten family needs!" They then proceed to list such things on sale this week as steaks, pork chops, and roast beef. Are they just trying to rub it in the Catholics' faces, or what?
Item 2: Another Kroger commercial. "Kroger, your official Black History Month grocery store!"
Insert your own joke here.
For that matter, let me go on record here as saying that Black History Month, Women's History Month, et. al. are not just tacky, they are ignorant. History would make a whole lot more sense if it were integrated, don't you think?
Item 3: KFC asked the Pope to bless the fish sandwiches they will be selling during Lent. Sigh.
Item 4: This.
