Interesting that they chose to headline the story as 'McDonald's CEO dies of heart attack'. But yeah, I guess he had a few too many Happy Meals.

The jokes would be too easy. No sport.

Jokes WOULD be too easy. But it is ironic that he was on a huge kick to make McDonalds more healthy. Kinda sad, really.

My guess is that he almost never ate there himself. Why eat an EggMcMuffin when you can have Eggs Benedict.

:)

If he is the person who brought us the mcGriddle then this truly is a day to morn :)

Seriously though 60 is a bit to young to die. Pray for his family.

oh, the delicious irony. kinda like that atkins guy. though in all fairness, this was most likely at least partially stress-induced.

speaking of delicious, though... would any of you lick a mcdonald's employee? i bet they'd be mighty tasty...

would have been funny if the headline read

"Philip Morris family dies from passive smoking"



.. ah slap me for being silly... I am board, hehe. ;)
