Residence: Ukrainian Village
Like many other local singles, Debbie Mudd laments the difficulty of meeting people in Chicago. Her job as an advertising copywriter claims plenty of her time, and Mudd, a fitness fanatic, chews through more hours at the gym after work. Upon reflection, though, she admits the problem really isn’t meeting guys; it’s “meeting someone you potentially want to make out with.”
And what sort of fellow can make her pucker up? “Everybody loves to laugh,” says Mudd, whose own one-liners fly at warp speed.
Perhaps Mudd’s craving for stimulation traces to her childhood in Jefferson City, Missouri—“the town that fun forgot,” she calls it. After college at the University of Missouri she joined Frankel, a division of Arc Worldwide, working on the McDonald’s account. Soon she was inventing games and writing jokes for Happy Meals (“Why don’t lobsters share their fries? Because they’re shellfish”) and moving on up. Her newest mission: to “change the world” by producing pithy copy for Miller Lite and Miller Genuine Draft. If she can persuade enough people to drink more beer, it might help her in another endeavor. Recently certified as a personal trainer, she’s looking for clients to help slim down. Bet she’ll have them smiling, even while they feel the burn.
