In an effort to fight childhood obesity, the Board of Supervisors of San Francisco voted to ban McDonald’s from passing out toys with their happy meals. The BOS of SF are kind of bad ass taking on the Clown like that.
I was thinking of this when I was driving this afternoon. The baby had fallen asleep in her car seat. I didn’t want to wake her up so I was just driving around the West Roxbury Parkway. I went through McDonald’s so my son can get something to eat. I ordered him a boy’s Happy Meal with milk. The milk was so I could feel less guilty about this.
We hit pay dirt with the toy. They were having a Batman promotion. He got a Joker, the Joker’s car and a Batman. He drank the milk, ripped open the toy, and then THREW AWAY the nuggets and the French Fries.
You know, when I started this post I thought this might be illustrative of something. But now, I am not sure what. Other than he has just ½ my DNA because I never would have thrown away those French Fries.
