They still can't take a joke. For the second time in two years, the Roy Rogers fastfood chain has withdrawn a television ad that makes fun of school lunches, following complaints from school cafeteria workers. The ad, which first aired in 1988, features women in white aprons, with ``you'll-get-yours'' smiles on their faces, displaying dubious dishes from the school cafeteria. The background music is ``See You in September.'' School cafeteria workers and their union called the ad ``despicable'' when it first aired, and their ire was no less this time around. Asked if the ad campaign would ever be tried again, a Roy Rogers spokesman replied, ``Not in my lifetime.''
