In Keeping with the Food theme - Egg McMuffin Man
A Southern California McDonald's restaurants official says Egg McMuffin inventor Herb Peterson has died in Santa Barbara at age 89.
Peterson came up with idea for the signature McDonald's breakfast item in 1972.
He began his career with McDonald's as vice president of the company's advertising firm, D'Arcy Advertising, in Chicago. He wrote McDonald's first national advertising slogan, "Where Quality Starts Fresh Every Day," and eventually became a franchisee.
I must say, I do love an egg mcmuffin once in a while. Every couple years is all my body can take.
