We’ve covered McDonald’s a few times on this channel and this will likely not be the last. Theorists, have you ever heard of McDonaldland, the McDonald’s theme park? Yes, a real place where you could go hang out with Ronald McDonald, the Hamburglar, Grimace, and the rest. Think of it like a Disney but for a fast food chain… because that was exactly what McDonald’s was trying to rip off. It is time to open the greasy wrapper of a part of McDonald’s dark history that they want you to forget.

    Are we going to talk about how there wasn’t even a theory, but more of a recap of what happened to McDonald’s in is early years.

    “Can I copy your homework? ”
    “Yeah but make it a little different so it isn’t obvious. “

    As a Gen-X who grew up in the 80s. The McDonald land theme definitely had the same kind of magic as Disney. They had talking hamburgers. Which was just as cool in the pre-internet era as a talking mouse. Ronald was the only clown that wasn’t scary. I hated clowns but Ronald was the man. He was a low key super hero who was always saving the Hamburgers from thieves and pirates.

      @Befastisgood nope

      @Matthew Wilson dude. Thanks to how society has evolved to be “easily offended” people can truly be who they want to be, love who they want to love, and people seem a lot more scared nowadays thanks to social media where horrible spreads like wildfire. I simply think that what you are saying is wrong, insensitive, and downright horrible

    • Matthew Wilson says:

      @Befastisgood you’re more than welcome to have your opinion

    • Befastisgood says:

      @Matthew Wilson ok I see we have an understanding I hope you have a wonderful day 🙂

    • Matthew Wilson says:

      @Befastisgood you too
