Happy Meal Toy Stamp by MetalShadowOverlord Happy Meal Toy Stamp by MetalShadowOverlord
My 100th Stamp! Whoohoo!

Anyway, in Santa Clara County (in California) Happy Meal toys are probably going to be banned in an effort to "combat child obesity". Sure, it's only in California, but ideas like this spread like wildfire.

Sorry, but when I order a Happy Meal, I'M not happy unless I get my friggin toy! It's just not a Happy Meal without one.

Happy Meals don't make kids fat, parents who suck at life do!

This is exactly the kind of anti-socialoist thinking we need! Government is getting way out of hand and if we are to believe that our elected officials, who think its okay to have affairs but not for us to get our kinds toys with fast food, they need another thing coming!

love the background, looks just like the electric window of a mc donalds resturant! maybe mc donalds should be flashing this along with their offers!

might have been funnier to have ronald greating the corrupt politicians with a one finger salute! or perhaps birdie flashing the bird, but this getw the point across
What do you think?

To be honest, I actually agree with this. For one, the government needs to back off and stop micromangaing the choices of the public. Someone wants to get some fast food? I'm all for that, it's their choice what they eat. What I do wish people would do though is do it in moderation. Personally, it would get expensive to eat out all the time, but after a while the taste begins to lose it's original effect. Sure, it'll still taste good, but not near as much after a continuous exposure. In fact, the fast food industry isn't the one to blame. It's usually the lack of control of choices in some individuals if they go on a daily basis. Here's how I see it with fast food, and you don't have to have the same philosophy on it I just wanted to share my take. Dining out should be a treat, an occasion that could be planned out every couple of months or so. And since dining out is a treat and a special occasion, what are people going to do on this kind of outing? They're going to indulge. They have a justification to get that juicy deliciously savory hamburger they've been craving with a side of fries, a soda pop or beverage of choice, and a desert to top off the meal, whether it be a sundae, a cone, a slice of pie, or an order of fresh chocolate chip cookies. If done on occasion, I don't see this as a problem. On a very regular basis, sure, there's going to be a problem, but that's where healtier options come in. If you go to a fast food joint on a regular basis, you could order a salad and some water [a cup of water is usually a free accomodation at fast food joints, but bottled water will cost ya], or you could go with your usual fare but make some smarter adjustments for it. The salads are there for those who want it, but if this were one of those special outings, then yes, ordering a salad then would be like going to a hooker and paying a lot more just for a hig.

As for this, the government has no right to parent everyone. A kid wants a Happy Meal? Let them get a Happy Meal. In fact, smarter food choices are already being put into effect for kid's meals. Don't want your kid to eat a greasy burger? Then get them chicken nuggets made with 100 percent white breast meat. Don't want them to eat salty French Fires? Then order them some apple slices, at some chains you can even get a small cup of caramel dip for them. Don't want your kid to drink sugary soda or slurp down a milkshake that has trans fats [the ones at Burger King do, which freaks me out]? Then request a milk carton/bottle or a juice box. Banning the toy isn't going to solve the childhood obesity problem, so the government just needs to stop whining about it. As for their claim that the toy is a temptation to get kids to eat unhealthily, it's not.

Man I wish I would've gotten a Happy Meal back when they were promoting the Friendship is Magic toys. Poniiiiieeesssssssssssss

If I wanna ruin my body, it's none of the government's business!

Not all democrats want the intrusion of privacy.

Just like if she wants to abort the baby, it's none of your business.

If you don't get the free toy, then why would it be called a HAPPY meal, then? Hmm?
I sometimes order a Happy Meal for the toy, so the government would totally ruin Mickey D's for me by doing that. :-(
