  • When I worked at McDonalds, I was told by my manager that there were prize regions for the bigger prizes because they wanted to make sure that they got better media coverage if they were found.

  • I feel like it’s not fair to ask KIDS if they know who Jesus is and if they know who Ronald McDonald is before they even know what religion is but for sure know what their favorite food to get after preschool is

  • I don't know if this would be relevant for Food Theory --- but whatever happened to kids meals advertising? When I was a kid (1990s) fast-food commercials usually consisted of advertisement of the kids' meal AND a plug on whatever gimmicky toy they were promoting for the month (between my brother and I, we had a laundry basket chock full of those things). That doesn't seem to be a thing anymore; I dunno if that's just me not seeing it because I don't watch anywhere near as much television as I used to (virtually none, honestly; I use my downtime to game, and electronically read my newspaper subscription on my phone), or if kids meal advertising really has changed. Anyone else have any thoughts on the issue?

  • Food Theory: McDonald's funded the terrorists to distract the public from their fraud case.

  • Used to work for a gas station that did a Monopoly style game. We referred to the winning pieces as "The Boardwalk Piece." I would love to see this flip one year when Boardwalk is easy to get and Park Place is the hard one.

  • I nearly won a Mini Cooper on McMonopoly. Had both Regent and Bond Street (Pacific and Penndylvania Ave for US) and attempted to agree with a classmate for Oxford (North Carolina) to sell the car and split the dosh. He refused and then shredded the piece as he realised he wouldn't get the car. Turns out he wanted the Mini just to destroy it and put it on TH-vision. He then complained that he would never be internet famous. It was going to be £12,500 each😧 Also I dislike Ketchup with my nuggets. THATS RIGHT, THIS PSYKHO IS A SOCIOPATH 👁👅👁

  • Mc Donald's got rid of all their playgrounds near me as of early this year. Most had been removed years ago but the final one around here got planned to remove in November and they took a few months extra to remove it bringing it to 2020.
