New Clown McLudicrous

McDonald's is giving its clown an overhaul in a pathetic attempt to seem health-conscious.

The company, looking to combat criticism that it contributes to obesity, says Ronald McDonald is no longer a fast food pusher, but an "ambassador of fun, fitness and children's well-being."

In his latest ad, Ronald coaxes kids out of the house and into kicking around a soccer ball, juggling vegetables and playing basketball with NBA star Yao Ming. This, presumably, will help train kids to run faster to McDonald's to buy a Mighty Kids meal.
