The Happy Meal is apparently a "Crappy Deal" for those amongst us who can’t get by a single day without making a super-sized fuss over… something.
Lest you think the Great Lake State may have more important things to worry about like closing auto plants and that Detroit is rapidly becoming the go-to Mecca in the U.S. for illegal FGM procedures, the wording of the resolution makes it clear this is a pressing matter.
“This is a significant issue as billions of these meals are sold every year and this practice can influence and limit children’s imaginations and interests by promoting some toys as only suitable for girls and others only for boys.”
Who knew that going to a burger joint could be so debilitating for a child’s development?
Meanwhile in Quebec, the McMisery continues. Antonio Bramante, a father of three, is suing McDonald’s for illegally promoting Happy Meals to children, alleging the company is breaking laws that ban most advertising to those under 13.
No, I’m not McRibbing you! It seems Bramante needs a deep-pocketed scapegoat due to his inability to enact that which is known as “parental guidance.”
So, for those in the lunatic fringe, it looks like Happy Meals are really Misery Meals.
