I was mildly and a bit sourly amused to see that the ad at the top and side of the page just now was "Burger and bottomless fries, $6.99!"

    the ads you see have nothing to do with MFP. they're generated by your browsing history and other internet usage statistics.

    The ads are based on your google searches probably. Mine are all clothing ads.

    Ah. So I checked Wendy's salad calories, and it thinks I want endless fries.

    Yes. It can read your mind.

    I always have adult diaper ads too. But never food. No idea what's up with the diapers.

    I can always tell what my husband was searching when I log on. It's usually car parts or musical instruments. For me, it tends to be crafty stuff. Kind of scary that Google knows...
