Devo Suing McDonalds Over Happy Meal Toy

Recommended Posts

If it's "pretty right on key" how exactly is it "hilarious"? I know the nature of Wiki and that anyone can go in at any time and change the info but in this case the information is correct otherwise I wouldn't have cited it. My main point is that many seemed to entirely miss the intent of the film. It's not just McDonalds, the movie could have been made about virtually any fast food franchise. As mentioned, if you read the description I posted the link to, there's much more at work behind the movie than an indictment against the fast food industry in general.

how is it hilarious? you said so yourself..wiki isnt the greatest source....take a chill pill. just messing with ya

Yes, I said Wiki isn't always the greatest source but the info in this instance is correct otherwise I wouldn't have cited it.

The one question I have with all the anti-McDonald's attitude is why are they the only ones to get singled out? They are not the only fast food chain in the world....the biggest yes, but man are they getting the brunt of the backlash.

"Super Size Me" was a ridiculous 'documentary.' And unrealistic. It doesn't have to be McDonald's to cause your health to deteriorate. A poor diet is a poor diet whether it's McDonald's or some other junk. Even if you prepare your own homecooked meals drenched in butter/sugar it will catch up to you sooner or later.

Furthermore, nobody forces you to walk into a McDonald's and eat their food. Sure they have mass marketing and try to entice children with happy meal toys or bla bla bla BUT each person is responsible for their own choices/actions. For example, the case where there was an obese girl whose family sued McDonald's saying her obesity was McDonald's fault. This is exactly what is wrong in this world. If McDonald's broke through her front door and shoved Big Macs down her throat, they would have a case. But I guess it's easier if you can throw the blame somewhere else and try to sue for some crazy amount of money.

In the case of the Devo hats, if they did indeed steal their "look" Micky D's is in the wrong.

EXACTLY.

Pretty much every business in the world advertises their product. Why should McDonald's be any different? Lots of businesses that are bad for your health, bad for the planet, bad for your moral well-being, etc. are allowed to advertise. Doesn't mean you have to use their products. It's called having some personal fucking responsibility!! I eat at McDonald's, Burger King, etc. on occasion, and I'm still one skinny-ass mo-fo. But then again, I don't get the super size, and I don't eat five burgers at a sitting, either.

That's why I posted the link to the Wiki entry about Super Size Me, there was much more at work in that movie than just an indictment with McDonalds. Take the time to read it and you'll see exactly what I was talking about.

I hope Devo sue McDonalds for so much money that Ronald McDonald is forced to make pornos with Grimace just to pay the creditors...

McDonalds deserves to go bankrupt for the sheer shit it inflicts on the world's stomachs. I had McDonalds the other day and the quality was so bad that in comparison cardboard would've been a tasty treat.

They've been flogging off the McAfrica Burger lately and my friend said "I want to know what sauce they've put on it" and I said "it won't make any difference, it's not like it's going to have a taste"

McDonalds will always be in business, and continue to open more stores. People are generally lazy, spoiled, and love the taste of shit...
