    Re: McDonald's sued over Happy Meals

    Haven't a few of these lawsuits already been lost by the people bringing suit?
    I may be wrong.

    Re: McDonald's sued over Happy Meals

    This lawsuit literally blows my mind. I was talking about it with a few friends and none of us can understand why these people think they will win. I mean sure I do believe that McDonalds should at least TRY and make their fast food less fattening, but this is just stupid. Parents do your job and say no, just like the D.A.R.E. program your kids sit through.

    This is nothing but a waste of time. Instead of suing these fat ass's should run some laps.

So take a little responsibility, for once in your lazy-assed, pathetic lives.

    I wonder how many parents with kids fatter than Santa Claus I just pissed off with this post?

    Article is here.
    These ambulance chasing legalized extorting scumbags should have their licenses revoked for filing such a frivolous lawsuit. There should a law against this sort of crap.Judicial extortion and fraud should be just as illegal as regular fraud and extortion.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Re: McDonald's sued over Happy Meals

    There's a legitimate reason for bringing this lawsuit.



    It's... um... uh...well...um... let me think about it for a while and I'll come up with something regardless of how plausible it is.

    Re: McDonald's sued over Happy Meals

    there's no such thing as bad PR

    I'm cravin some McMc's right now damnit - some big mac sauce slathered extra thick between two flat and mishapen buns. Some foul ketchup and soggy pickles. . . so gross but oh so damn good! Greasy fries - everything tainted with that McMc's flavor of mass production.

    MMMM

    I'd get some if the kids weren't all asleep! Too bad they don't deliver

    But hey! I know how to make a Big Mac sauce. It's AWESOME with some fried beer-battered cod fish.

    Re: McDonald's sued over Happy Meals

    When my kid (who is young enough to want happy meals) gets a job that earns him enough money to transport himself to McDonald's and purchase food there, I might complain that McDonald's is enticing him.

    If, you know, I had a kid.
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    Re: McDonald's sued over Happy Meals

    The problem I have with this story is that this woman can't say no to her kids. It is her responsibility to say no and enjoy it.

    I think a parent like this should be monitered by DHS because if she can't say no to McDonald's, what is going to happen when the kids demand something really important that will hurt them?

    When they are young it is the easy road, when they get older and are out of the house most of the time is when you have to worry and if the kid gets everything he ever asked for, he doesn't know right from wrong.

    I also wonder if McDonald's is the only place that gives toys to the kids with the food.

    Where I am we have Burger King and Carl's Jr. doing the same thing so why single out McDonald's?

    Re: McDonald's sued over Happy Meals

    Every single restaurant offers toys or amusement for kids - with a purchase of a kid's meal.
    heck, some places give such things just by coming in the door with a child. . . and other places are a funland where you come to eat (like Chucky Cheese) . . . and so on.

    If people can sue McD's because their kid is fat - can I sue them for letting their kid get fat?
    In some places children have been taken away from their parents because they're obese. I agree with Mason - more action against such parents should be taken.

    it's not hard not to let your kid become obese. Just don't feed them adult-sized meals every single day filled with nothing but fat, empty calories and meat byproduct.

    Obese people irritate me with their argument against eating healthy - they spend twice (at least) as much money on food every week as the average person - and yet complain that eating more fruits and veggies is too expensive and they can't afford it.

    Being money-savvy when you shop is a thing of the past - so is smart cooking.
    I had one woman argue with me that buying $1.00 burgers at McD's for her family was cheaper than a bag of organic apples. Indeed - yes it is cheaper than organic apples. Who the **** *needs* to eat a bag of organic apples for dinner? I've never once bought a bag of organic apples and we eat healthy and balanced all the time. An average lb of apples in my area costs $1.80 most of the year. . . I went to California in March this year and fruit was half that - I wanted to buy a ton and send it home.
    Most bizarre about her argument was that she was arguing "I would buy organic apples if they were less expensive" - in a debate about eating fast-food burgers. She claimed to be concerned about food-content and didn't want the chemicals that a regular apple came with.
