Hello, its 12 O’clock and time for some funnies. Unfortunately, Andreaa has skived off on another holiday to Turkey because she enjoyed the last one so much. So it is left to me to cover her backside as always. Last time she went away she gave me a couple of posts for me to post in her absence. No such luck this time. To be fair though, she doesn’t half work some hours for that shop of hers so maybe we can let her off this time. Unfortunately, it means you will have to put up with me for the next couple of weeks.
Have you ever been sitting there late at night and suddenly you fancy a McDonald’s? That is exactly what happened to a four-year-old girl and so her eight-year-old brother drove her to the drive-thru using the family van. The boy swiped the keys and drove to the local McDonald’s with his sister riding shotgun. Patrolman Jake Koehler got the call on the radio last Sunday night of a child driving a vehicle. He pulled into the town’s only McDonald’s and found the boy still behind the wheel. His first question: What are you doing? “Me and my sister really wanted a cheeseburger,” the boy told Koehler.
Awoman has gone on the run after attacking her mother with a cheeseburger. Police were called to a McDonald’s restaurant in Indianapolis, Indiana, at around 12.30am on Sunday following reports of an assault. The two women are believed to have started arguing after the mother told her daughter she could no longer stay at her home. The 60-year-old mum was driving her daughter, 39, to someone else’s house when the younger woman changed her mind about where she wanted to go, the Indy Star newspaper reported.
It has been joked about for many years but it is finally about to become reality. All those hangovers spent in purgatory, wondering whether you can physically make it down the road to get some recuperative chicken nuggets. All those cold, wet evenings when you’ve craved a Big Mac but had to settle for a microwaved two-day-old soup. All this will soon be a thing of the past. McDonald’s has strongly hinted that they might be about to start delivering food to homes in the UK.
The Internet has been awash with stories of secret food items available off-menu to those in the know among fast food fans but it’s always been thought it was an American phenomenon. Here at Jammy Toast we decided test the UK and found, with a little effort, you can get more or less anything from McDonald’s, KFC, Burger King and Subway. We sent intrepid and very hungry reporter Erik out to try and get the secret menu items and the results he found were delicious!
Razzi always says that you see prettier girls walking around town than you see on television or magazines and in this case we have to admit he is spot on. A girl who works for McDonald’s is causing hearts to flutter around the world with her wide-eyed looks causing people to flock to see her in real life after she became an online viral star. Wei Han Xu has soared to online fame after she was noticed under the golden arches in Taiwan.
Around four in ten KFC and McDonald’s outlets are in the poorest areas of England. KFC on Laird Street, Birkenhead and McDonald’s on Liverpool Road, Knowsley are prime examples of Fast Food Outlets in areas of high deprivation. Jammy Toast can confirm that 42% of KFCs and 39% of McDonald’s restaurants are in the country’s poorest areas. Health campaigners say fast food chains are targeting deprived people with cheap but unhealthy food and want to see a cap on the number of outlets in certain areas.
The Bearkeeper and I were out working today when we had a serious need for some nourishment. It was past our lunch time and we had had nothing to eat. Although we know we shouldn’t, we headed towards McDonald’s to find the biggest surprise of our lives – they had brought back the much-loved McRib Sandwich after an absence of twelve years. We couldn’t believe it as we joined the queue for the drive-thru. Apparently, the fast food manufacturer had made the announcement using a tongue-in-cheek “mockumentary”, where obsessed McRib fans talked about their love for the iconic meal. However, they didn’t invite us to speak about it!
There is an old saying about how you cannot teach an old dog new tricks but today Granny and I disproved that. While running round doing some last minute Christmas chores we passed a KFC and Granny asked did they do breakfasts. I thought at the time it was a bit of a daft question because who wants chicken for breakfast but because it is the season of joy [sic], I decided to let it go.
Just in case you didn’t already know it, it is official – Britain is obsessed with fast food. In fact, things have got that bad that, according to a survey undertaken this week, one in five of us think fish and chips is a healthy meal. We British have always been busy people; we have things to do, places to be and people to see. Not like in France where they have long lunches with lots of wine flowing or even Spain with their siesta. No, we have always needed something hot, tasty and about as nutritionally good for us as the packaging it comes in. In Britain we have not had a good night out unless we have witnessed an act of violence down the pub and staggered home carrying something covered in chilli sauce and with chip fat running down our faces.
