Ban happy nanny state San Francisco thought they could get rid of the Happy Meal by passing a law that says meals that don't pass certain nutritional standards can't be marketed to children or give away free toys. Please. There is no stopping corporate giant McDonald's.
McDonald's, which for years has played wicked witch to our plump little Hansels and Gretles, has announced that they are making their happy meals a bit healthier. Will this keep our children from having their first aneurisms at 12 years-old?
Inspired by San Francisco, a new bill before the New York City Council seeks to put dietary restrictions on meals that come with free toys. They better watch out. I'd hate to run into Ronald McDonald in a dark alley.
Just when you think we're headed in the Right direction, here comes godless CommieQueer San Francisco to muck it all up. Their proposed ban of McDonald's Happy Meal toys has passed. What's next, banning children's handguns?? Goose step away, 'Frisco.
Things already banned in San Francisco: plastic bags, tasering children. We can support that. Also proposed: pets. Well, I don't know...And also, now: Happy Meal toys, which encourage unhealthy eating habits. What if the toys are fun though?
California's Santa Clara County passed a law banning toys in food promotions, like those in McDonald's Happy Meals and will sue if the company doesn't comply. McD's says parents should swap fries for apple slices—with caramel dipping sauce.
