The other day, an orphaned boy asked me what the difference was between Leonardo da Vinci and a Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger from Wendy's. Since I strongly believe that children are our future, I thought I'd delve into the issue (this one's for you Bobby Everykid).
First off, both da Vinci and Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger are well-known. Da Vinci's name is in the title of the book, The Da Vinci Code. The author of the book, Dan Brown, is a well-known Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger enthusiast. Also, Wendy's serves Jr. Bacon Cheeseburgers until 12 A.M., and da Vinci lived in the 12th century. Coincidence? I think not. However, Leonardo da Vinci had a beard. Jr. Bacon Cheeseburgers do not have beards, nor will they ever. On the other hand, while Mr. da Vinci painted the Mona Lisa, it is a little-known fact that Ms. Lisa became famous from her passion for Jr. Bacon Cheeseburgers, and in fact named her daughter Mona Wendy. Leonardo was the name of the "coolest" Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, while the closet Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger has ever come to children's action hero was as the blue ranger on Power Rangers: Lost Galaxy.
In closing, both da Vinci and Jr. Bacon Cheeseburgers are somewhat of an acquired taste, but perseverance definitely pays off.
