In the City by the Bay, if you want to roller skate naked down Castro Street wearing a phallic-symbol hat and snorting an eight-ball off a transgender hooker’s chest while underage kids run behind you handing out free heroin needles, condoms and coupons to the grand opening of the neighborhood’s newest bathhouse, that’s your right as a free citizen of the United States. But if you want to put a Buzz Lightyear toy in the same box with a hamburger and fries and sell it, you’re outta line, mister!

LOS ANGELES (AFP) – Fast food giant McDonald’s said Wednesday it was “extremely disappointed” at a ruling by San Francisco authorities banning high-calorie Happy Meals, which entice children to eat with free toys.

The response came after the Californian city’s board of supervisors voted to forbid restaurants from giving gifts with meals that contain too much fat and sugar.

Far be it from me to make a suggestion to McDonalds, but if they really want Happy Meals reinstated in San Francisco, they’ll present city authorities with the ultimate dilemma: A Happy Meal containing toys promoting gay marriage.

Update: Reader Joy H. emails an idea: “McD’s sells the toy for 1 penny. You can buy a Happy Meal for $2.30 without a toy or $2.31 with a toy.
The gov’t cannot ban Mc’D’s from selling a toy as a separate item. It would be a beautiful protest by the company.”
