Say, what?


Thursday, May 17, 2007


After the McDonald's condom fiasco (see May 10 blog below), another Happy Meal has been laced with something more than cookies.

It seems an Ottawa, Ill., 8-year-old found a lighter, a pipe and a bag of marijuana in her Happy Meal yesterday. After wondering what the heck these new toys were, she promptly turned over the stash to her parents Keith and Andrea Ireland.

Police said the drugs and paraphernalia were placed in one of the Happy Meal boxes for safe-keeping by McDonald's employee Brandon Scott, 17, for later, when he got a chance to get happy too.

I guess it's insignificant to say, "What was this kid ... high?"

In any case, once the Happy Meal McBig Deal was straightened out, Scott was fired and McDonald's apologized. The Irelands plan to sue anyway.

Maybe McD's should just do away with the Happy Meals, especially if those parents of the children involved in the last two incidents sue...I smell McLawsuit(s)..

If I remember correctly-a Happy Meal used to be the family sitting around the table at home and eating mom's cooking while discussing the day.

Guess I am dilussional

McReefer,eh? Well that's better than the finger tip that was found in the Wendy's chili a few years ago.
Pack the pot in the "Happy Meal"...corner the market on the munchies.... Far out man!
All I ever get in my Happy Meal is the stinkin' toy!

Actually anon, that is my failed attempt at taking a picture of the Marlboro man. Any pot smoker will tell you that you don't blow out the smoke from a joint, you hold it in.

And just for the record, my days of being stoned and stupid stopped years ago when at a college assignment I took pictures of an event for the school newspaper without film in the camera.
