Blogosphere opinions are split on Padma Lakshmi’s new commercial for Hardee’s/Carl’s Jr., in which she lustily chows down on a bacon-laced barbecue burger. Shall we pause to consider the evidence?

Particularly impressive is how they appear to have edited into the middle of the ad a shot of uncontrollable sex fiend Author/Culinary Expert Padma hiking up her dress, with no apparent connection whatsoever to the burger-eating process.”

I really think a commenter at A Hamburger Today said it best though: “Boobies and Burgers —GOD BLESS AMERICA!”
