Maybe Just for laughs…

Maybe Just for laughs, but what if there was a post or comment counter on the home page that read; “20,128 Ratburger comments served”.

Do ya’ think McDonalds would have a fit over that?

(Right under “Hey, it’s free.”.)

I'm from Pensyltucky. Can trace my ancestry directly to whom the present day national anthem of Poland is written about. Presently repair slot machines at a casino.

  1. I remember a folk song from the 1960s that included a passage like (from dim memory):

    Always wanted to walk into McDonald’s,
    Order a billion hamburgers,
    Watch them change the sign.

    Anybody remember the song or artist?

    Thanks to a clever fuzzy search, Gougueul returns a “Steve Charney” and this page :

    quoting this immortal piece of literature :

    “Going downtown to Macdonald’s hamburgers
    Going to stand in line
    Going to order a billion hamburgers
    Watch ’em change the sign”

    😉

    You keep on forgetting how incapable you are in English. You are not supposed to make us look bad. 😉

  4. 10 Cents:

    You keep on forgetting how incapable you are in English. You are not supposed to make us look bad. 😉

    As Mr Chapel said it, “I’m not as smart as I look”… but I’m smarter than I write. 😉 At least when I try and write in English.

    Contrarily to many morons who believe they deserve everything and that a plan *always* succeeds, I think luck *does* exist (and Machiavel, and Thucydide did think it too — Machiavelli and Thucydides for you English people), hence my finding the right words to make Gougueul search engine admit it *did* know where Mr Walker’s quote was hidden. Of course, I first invoked both Alea and Ritornel just to be sure I would be favored by *both* luck and rationality (Crom and Cthulhu were irrelevant for *that* kind of search). A former life as a Grand Inquisitor from Zork was of some help too, I suppose. 😉 Yes, *just* joking.

    P.S. : Alea and Ritornel come from The Ring of Ritornel by Charles Harness, a fine forgotten S.F. writer. His degrees in chemistry and in law were not totally lost when he wrote — *The New Reality* and *The Rose* are excellent and clever short stories.

    Does this mean each time we comment,  we will get points that will eventually get us a free Big Mac?

    Truth be told, you get a Shamrock Shake or French Fries.

    This is Halloween season, Gerry. No Shamrock shakes.

    This scares me, Gerry. The middle one looks like a Mr Yuck sticker. I want an Insouciant Meal.
