San Francisco Frowns on Happy Meals

From the Department of Truth is Stranger Than Fiction, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors has barred restaurants from including free toys with their meals. So in San Francisco, Ronald McDonald is public enemy number one.

I wonder if the Board of Supervisors would reconsider if McDonalds gave out free marijuana instead of toys.

Back in February I wrote about Cambridge Climate Congress' proposal that restaurants not serve meat on Monday. I asked, "Would they compel McDonalds on Massachusetts Avenue not to serve Big Macs on Mondays?" Well, if they can ban Happy Meals in San Francisco what's to stop the People's Republic of Cambridge from banning Big Macs?

One can only hope San Francisco will have the good sense not to ban the McRib. They would have a counterrevolution on their hands.
