I don't eat McDonald's but this is just wrong.
Hey Deborah, **** you!
They should retire him. Clowns are creepy. The fewer clowns, the better to me.
He's a pedo and needs to go.
He looks like a child molester, to me.
But he kicked ass in Logorama.
Bring back Speedee.
Comparing Ronald to Joe Camel is just ridiculous.
Seriously. Where the hell do these people come from?
WTH......... I love Ronny!!!!
Number of deaths for leading causes of death, mmm start those kids off right.
* Heart disease: 631,636
* Cancer: 559,888
* Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 137,119
* Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 124,583
* Accidents (unintentional injuries): 121,599
* Diabetes: 72,449
* Alzheimer's disease: 72,432
* Influenza and Pneumonia: 56,326
* Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis: 45,344
* Septicemia: 34,234
Why can't these fascist organizations leave Ronald alone?
And Skinner, bring back the Hamburglar, Grimace and the Fry Guys. I love the Hamburglar's antics and the Fry Guys are adorable. Grimace gives me the hebbie jebbies, but he's harmless enough (although I don't know which of the foods he represents).
Grimace was the shake wasn't he?
Ronald McDonald is the least of their problems....
Yeah, the big purple Shake.
I'm pretty sure he was gay, too. Years before that Teletubie made it ok.
Don't forget Mayor McCheese.
Whether you know it or not (and Im not going to find the link), kids dont need to eat the way we adults do. They actually need fat for their brains to develop. Its what they do later that matters.
He's really creepy, though. He rarely talks. He stares at little kids with a blank grin on his face. He wildly leaps around for no reason. He's a clown. He's borderline disgusting to look at, with a mop of tangled, greasy red hair and smears of makeup all over his face. He inspires vomiting, not consuming.
I've never been to a McDonalds, and the mascot was one of the big reasons why (this was before I learned about good eating, too).
Give him the boot.
Parents are ultimately responsible for what their children eat. Hardly any children out there have access to enough money to buy enough McDonalds to give them a heart attack. It's the parents which decide what their children eat most of the time and I don't see how whatever McDonald's mascot is will influence them.
Its programming kids to associate **** food with happy times. Take their favorite character and plop it on the most unhealthy food possible, win. It is ultimately the parents who are responsible for their kids, thats the problem, we have ****** parents. Society will pay for it in the long run.
You realize theres a difference between the fat you get in a mcdonalds cheeseburger and say natural peanut butter right? We have young kids with diabetes these days, its pretty sickening.
@ kids needing to eat junkfood for proper brain development...
I hope they do retire Ronald, he always creeped me out. Now the hamburglar would be a worthy replacement. Perhaps a commercial where the hambuglar kills Ronald? As a way of sort of passing the torch.
So, now the chain causes diabetes?
Way to twist my words around.
Christ almighty this is some stupid sh*t. Find something better, more important, and most importantly--something concrete, to b*tch about. Coming out and going "Oh--this place sells fatty foods, they are responsible for thousands and thousands of deaths" is just idiotic and bona fide stupid.
Try being accountable for your own actions rather than always looking for someone else to blame. God I hate America when I see this kind of crap; in my experience it's only America who looks to blame society for their personal problems that a little self restraint and self control could take care of. Nobody is forcing you to eat McDonald's.
If parents can't raise their kids right, that's too damn bad. It's not the fault of McDonald's. People need to quit blaming piss-poor parenting on society and thinking it's society's job to raise your kids. It's just as bad as people who expect teachers to raise your kids. If you don't want to raise them properly, then you shouldn't have kids in the first place, it's as simple as that.
The responsibility lies with the parents, end of story. Stop making excuses.
The issue is beyond whether or not McDonald's food is unhealthy for children (which it is, by the way). It also encompasses the message that Ronald sends to his consumers: I am fun-loving, I have toys, and I work at McDonald's where they serve really good-tasting food loaded with sugar, fat, salt and casomorphin opiates. What children do early in life dictates and shapes behaviour, preferences and beliefs later on in life. Do you think nothing you did, liked, or consumed as a child has affected the way you are today? If so, then you must've been one stupid kid.
Everyone in America wants freedom of speech, capitalism, democracy, etc.
This is what you get, so you have no reason to complain.
So what were you trying to say? Because you definitely implied that McDonald's was good for children, because they need fat to develop properly. I say children have been developing for thousands of years just fine without McDonald's and there is absolutely NO good reason to feed a child McDonald's.
