November 28, 2005

On November 28, 2005 a 22-year-old man named Ronald MacDonald was charged with stealing money from a safe at a Wendy’s fast-food restaurant in Manchester, New Hampshire. Officer Big Mac, the arresting officer, said Wendy Thomas had spied Mr. MacDonald creeping around the restaurant, casing the joint with a couple of suspicious characters before his subsequent arrest. They were able to catch Mr. MacDonald, but Officer Big Mac, Mayor McCheese, the ‘King” of Burger King and Dave Thomas all said to be on the lookout for the Happy Meal Gang and their leaders the Hamburglar, Griddler and Captain Crook. Arby’s and Taco Bell both tried to get the press release to mention them as being important enough to be robbed, but only Taco Bell had a mascot and it was borderline racist, so everyone thought it was a good thing to not mention either of them. Except for Arby’s, they thought that mentioning Taco Bell’s racist mascot was schadenfreude-y and should definitely happen.
