SAN FRANCISCO -- The nation's public health crisis has a new face, and that face is covered in pancake makeup, has a bright red nose, and a shock of red hair-- or so says Stacey Folsom, a spokeswoman for a national campaign calling for the retirement of Ronald McDonald


 uh, wrong. The nations public heath crises is lazy parents who would rather cave in and buy their kids this junk instead of cooking healthy food...hell, im guilty of it. It has nothing to do with the clown. These stories really irritate me. Personal responsibility people!  Sometimes I just dont want to cook and Mickey D's is right up the road and cheap.. so yeah, I feed my kids McDonald's.  TongueOut

Quote
"Now, they're promoting processed fresh apples dipped in caramel sauce and sweetened milk as 'healthy' choices," said Gosliner. "Well, these meals and these choices are hurting our children's health."



Again, its up to the parents to decide if they want to feed their kids this stuff. Getting rid of the clown is not going to make a difference.

It would be nice for them to go after that creepy BK guy though.

What the hell does a mascot have to do with poor quality food. Ronald is now a martyr in my eyes, it's the parents that are the suckers for lining the pockets of greasy suits....

 I know this has nothing to do with the topic, but Ronald McDonald reminds of BERT from SESAME STREET. Must be the colors .... Lookingup

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
