McDonalds CEO: The Clown Stays, Food Nazis!

Okay, he didn’t quite put it that way, but that’s how I heard it:

The 48-year-old, red-haired mascot has come under fire from health-care professionals and consumer groups who, in recent days, have asked the fast-food chain to retire Ronald McDonald. But McDonald’s Chief Executive Officer Jim Skinner staunchly defended the clown at the company’s annual meeting on Thursday, saying, “Ronald McDonald is going nowhere.”

Shareholders seemed to agree, voting down a proposal to require the hamburger giant to tally the financial impact of defending its children’s meals. Just 6% of shareholders voted in favor of the resolution.

McDonalds has been sued, they’ve been lobbied to remove toys from Happy Meals because that makes them pedophiles or something, and now this.

Can you imagine sitting around all day not only worrying about what somebody else is eating, but making a concerted effort to tell everybody what to eat and control what restaurants sell and how they sell it?

It just occurred to me that this is the first time I’ve come to the defense of a clown since once admonishing myself for calling Al Gore fat (I loathe ad hominem attacks).
