Every time my kids get a happy meal, they enjoy the apples and milk...and the toy.

The exchange at 3:20-3:47 is classic.

By the way, giving people information about the caloric intake doesn't seem to solve the problem.

I like Ariely's stuff.

Didn't Friday's or Ruby Tuesday's (is that the name?) try and make smaller portions only to have people get hugely upset? I guess they could try to do it with the sides instead.

That was probably the best piece of journalism I've seen in a long time. LOL.
