Taking My Happy Meal Toy.....
Okay, so now some stupid group is trying to get my....I mean THE- toy taken away from Happy Meals because the fast food chain "unfairly and deceptively" markets the toys to children.
Oh My EFFING G!!!!!!
Okay- first of all- Most of these kids have PARENTS- and I'm assuming that if they're small enough to be wanting a HAPPY MEAL- (altho occasionally I have a hankering for a Happy Meal myself MAINLY because it's JUST the right size for those of us trying to watch our waist-line shrink, and yes I DO buy one AND play with the toy too before putting the toy in the toy basket for the grand-kids to play with when they come over to my house!....as a matter of fact, I personally would like one of the Shrek watches out now! ;-)....)they're young enough to have to have a parent bring them to the place to get it and pay for it. Isn't it then the Parents they should be lecturing to instead of taking away the kids TOY??????
Okay, and second of all- Bloody hell- why does it seem that every single aspect and area of our lives are now being (or trying to be)regulated by some damn group or agency?
I'm sick to the back TEETH of this Big Brother crap.I'm a grown-up for God's sake. I was a child once and my mom & dad and grandparents and aunts and uncles and even the neighbors who were ADULTS looked after me and looked out for me and guided and instructed me when I was young and naive and didn't know any better and was learning. But I've been an adult now for quite some time- have raised my OWN kids, and think I can make my OWN decisions for myself and the children who are put in my care quite on my own, Thank you VERY Much Mr. Big Brother Groups!
Now, go away and let me enjoy my Happy Meal and the TOY inside.
