View Full Version : So, why DO raccoons like Wendy's?

I pass by a Wendy's in my neighborhood (it always looks like a Hopper painting, with dispirited people slumped at tables) and see the big poster outside of two raccoons high-fiving each other: "Do what tastes right!"

Ummm . . . Don't raccoons eat garbage? Out of garbage cans? "Boy, there's always a lot of leftovers thrown into the trash when people eat at Wendy's," the raccoons seem to be saying. I wonder, what were the ad campaigns rejected in favor of this one?

It ties in with a commercial that they air as well, were the raccoon, who are sick of eating garbage, steal a car and go to Wendy's because they are open late, and raccoons, being nocturnal, can take full advantage of that.

For the fries and frosties I'll wager.
