The newer Taco Bell TV commercials dinging McDonald’s Restaurants are cute.

They feature real people named Ronald McDonald praising Taco Bell’s breakfast menu items. Ronald McDonald is the clown character long associated with McDonald’s Restaurants.

A question that needs to be asked is what parents, whose “kid” now is younger than age 60, would name their son Ronald McDonald, knowing the ridicule the kid would face in school over having the name of a clown?
