The evening news was doing a stupidly fluffy spot on the making of McDonalds' new, incredibly-earwormy-and-irritating fish-filet sandwich ad. And in the course of that spot, they played that damned jingle *ten times*.

Seriously, I think we're approaching the day when "Intentional Earworming" should be treated as a felony. Maybe even a war crime. (Hey, if the government isn't going to commit torture any more, I don't see why McDonalds' gets to do so...)
