Great stuff- McDonald's to Quit Iceland -- HOORAY

Hi all
What a VICTORY for decent food lovers everwhere -- Maybe the recession isn't all bad after all. -
Certainly does generate some strange "side effects".

I for one won't miss you Mcdonald's -- Bye Bye and please don't EVER come back again.

Cheers

Now if we could just stop them peddling their crap in the UK.

No, but it tastes better than Steak and Kidney pie.

How is it political, just because it mentions the economy??

I think TeenerTim knows the truth that Ronald McDonald is the chair of the bilderberg group and the driving force behind NWO

I'm proud to say that I live near a town called Clitheroe (Lancashire UK) which refused to have a McDonalds so they had to build it on the bypass road and Clitheroe Council made them lower their "m" so it wouldn't despoil the scenery.
Apparently this is the only small "m" in the country!
I read about Big Macs etc in American fiction and magazines when I was a boy and recall the first one opening in central London. I made quite a journey across London (for a 12 year old) and was bitterly disappointed. It's like eating warm greasy carpet.
You're right though Airbot. Our children seem to like them over here. It's a phase.

Cheers, John

PS. Was TeenTim banned for slagging off steak and kidney pie?
