“McRib is Back,” Ribwich Returns – On Sale Now at the Western Addition McDonalds – Time to Update the McRib Locator

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

Never believe anybody’s “Farewell Tour” is going to be their last – that’s true for Barbra Streisand as well as the people at McDonalds, who famously killed the famous McRib back in aught-five.

But the Bay Area is crazy for McRib these days, apparently.

So maybe the McRib website and the concomitant boneless site (srsly) are both gone now, but the McRib is back, baby.

Check Out this Historic Walt Disney Company Employee Handbook – It’s an Amazing Time Capsule from 1943

Monday, September 5th, 2011

Well, via the Walt Disney Family Museum‘s* Storyboard Blog, here’s the official Walt Disney Productions new employee handbook from 1943.

It’s called The Ropes at Disney’s.

Here’s a sample:

Professionally scanned-in** by Digital Assets Coordinator Mark Gibson – click to expand

See if you wouldn’t consider this handbook evidence of a hostile work environment, you know, from the standpoint of this day and age. Note that women got twice as many sick days as men, but they weren’t allowed access to the rooftop employee lounge.

Also, back in the day, some dreamed of impractical shoes while others dreamed of dating those who dreamed of impractical shoes. (Oh, well, maybe that’s just like today – nothing’s changed on that score.)

No matter, the long-torsoed guy is quite the ogler.

And check it, Disney pioneered workplace casual dress – it was called “Businesslike Informality,” so neckties were banned.


*Located in San Francisco’s Presidio, not too far from the Golden Gate Bridge.

**I have a color checker that’s just like the one you can see in the corner there, except mine’s all crinkled up now. These things are expensive.
