The Shrek Diet?

Okay, this is kind of odd– McDonald’s is partnering with Dreamworks to make SHREK the new “spokesperson” for their happy meals. They’ll be putting Shrek on a diet and shifting to an apple slices & salads instead of their usual burgers and fries sell.

Shrek is a big, fat, green ogre. Don’t get me wrong– I think the Shrek movies are hilarious. But why on earth would they make this character a spokesperson for healthy eating? What’s next– The Simpsons for family values? Sponge Bob Squarepants for an anti-drug campaign?
