Yes, you read that correctly. A two-year-old Chicago boy was rushed to the hospital after coughing up a piece of rubber which it turned out was part of a used condom. Apparently, the little boy consumed the condom while playing in a McDonald’s play area with his brother.
The boys’ mother, Anishi Spencer, is now suing the fast-food chain for $50,000 dollars worth of damages. She says the restaurant failed to properly clean hazardous debris from an area used by kids, and they did not use surveillance to uncover any “deviant activites” on its grounds. The money from the lawsuit will be used to pay her son’s medical bills.
This is absolutely DISGUSTING, and a new low for McDonald’s. Hopefully they are able to get to the bottom of this and figure out who took the meaning of “play area” to a very adult level.
The teens of Japan and South Korea have undeniably found the best way to party.
Groups of youths have descended onto their local McDonald’s where they order an overwhelming number of fries, dump them on the table and well, start digging in. Called “potato parties” (let’s workshop that name), they take pictures of themselves at their frie-laden tables before gorging all the deep fried deliciousness.
The fad began after a group of teens decided to buy unhealthy amounts of fries when the prices dropped to approximately $1.51 (USD) for all sizes during a promotion, according to The Daily Mail. One group in Okayama managed to eat sixty portions of fries — that’s roughly 30,000 calories.
Nutritionists may be quaking in their boots right about now but the forever hungry part of my brain is drooling. Thankfully, I know I’m not stupid enough to ever take part in this in the off chance the fad comes over to North America because:
a) I don’t want to die and
b) I feel like I’m dying after just trying to eat one of McDonald’s meals.

After hearing horror stories of people finding strange things in their fast food, I’ll be pretty freaked if I found a living animal in my McDonalds’ value meal. But as this kitty keeps poking in and out of the bag, there is just too much cuteness in this video to even care about the health risks.
What would you do if you were just chilling in McDonald’s eating your super size burger when all of a sudden a couple dudes from the street bursted in and started rapping about a million dollar menu?
That’s exactly what happened when Buckwheat Groats went in, with a portable mic and stereo and started performing “Million Dollar Menu.” The cashiers look slightly angry while the reaction from customers goes from fear to amusement to complete joy.
The video is directed by Ethan Blum and Buckwheat Groats and was uploaded to YouTube, where they politely say: “Eat a bag of piss.”
Where is this million dollar menu? Can someone tell us?

My grandma would definitely call these youths from Wigan “hoodlums.” Everyone else is calling them a national disgrace after they went into a local McDonalds and trashed the place, even jumping behind the employee counter and throwing rubbish.
About 100 youths started chanting obscene songs at two female workers as they tried to serve customers and the video went viral on YouTube three days after the incident. This is not okay, in fact, it’s incredibly appalling behaviour and kind of reminds me of the mob of people who violated Vancouver during the Stanley Cup riot last year.
Luckily, police came to break up the disorder and are trying to identify those who started the riot.

I was born in Canada but way back there somewhere there’s some Irish heritage, as confirmed by my last name. So that’s why I support the expansion of St. Paddy’s Day to an entire week of celebrating, all in preparation for the green beer explosion on Saturday.
But I’m not convinced by Shamrocking. MacDonalds execs sat around the boardroom and came up with the
genius idea, which is basically a spinoff of the inexplicably successful planking trend. Shamrocking involves buying a McDonalds green shake and taking a picture of yourself doing an Irish jig. Then uploading the photo so everyone can see how happy your drink has made you.
I’m always up for an Irish jig or shamrocking, which has been an expression of joy since the 16th century. But why do I have to buy a McDonalds shake to do it? Instead of #Shamrocking it should be called #Shamelesspromotion.
What do you think of the trend?
Gaga was getting ready at the Los Angeles’ Chateau Marmont Hotel to perform on Jimmy Kimmel. Fans flocked to the venue once they heard who was inside. When Gaga heard about the crowd gathering outside, she bought them all some fast food.
Afterwards, she sent down a note saying:
“Dear little monsters. Thank you for singing to me all day and night. I love you with all my heart.
“You make everyday worth living. Kisses to the cops for keeping you safe. Love Lady Gaga.”‘
That was really nice of Gaga, but did she have to buy McDonald’s? Not exactly a healthy meal. Perhaps a nice fruit plate would have been better? Or some sushi? She can afford it.
Rap mogul P. Diddy has been approached by fast food chain McDonald’s to design their new uniforms.
Diddy isn’t the only big name McDonald’s has been in talks with. Also on the table are Tommy Hilfiger, Russell Simmons (Phat Farm), Ralph Lauren, and Giorgio Armani. In addition, retail outlets American Eagle and Abercrombie & Fitch were approached.
McDonald’s, the world’s largest youth employer, is willing to pay big bucks for the new design.
We’ll keep you updated on which designer McDonald’s chooses.
