This afternoon, for the first time ever, I saw Ronald McDonald in our local McDonald’s restaurant.
Kids were traumatised. He seemed totally oblivious to the wide circle that was forming as he moved among the queues. “Freaky!” was just one of the comments I heard muttered.
Is he really a suitable figure to promote Happy Meals? Why don’t they go the whole hog and use Pennywise to bring the families in? Balloon, little boy?
At long last I would be able to have a coffee in there in peace.
Whenever I think of clowns it is either Stephen King’s creation or John Wayne Gacy who springs to mind.
Think it’s time for the kids to give Subway a go.
