Open Letter to the McDonalds Corporation from my Six-year Old Daughter

(ed's note: McDonalds' staff ring Happy Meals up as 'boy' or 'girl')

Dear McDonalds:

Yesterday you gave my brother and me different toys in our Chicken Nuggett Happy Meals. My toy was just a duck in a pond. My brother's toy was an airplane machine. I didn't like the duck in a pond because it was just a duck in a pond. It didn't do anything. I liked my brother's toy. It did lots of stuff. It could fly, it could turn, it could make stuff, like people. You shouldn't have given me a duck in a pond. That's something silly. Next time you should give me something like a machine or something like an airplane. I was mad at McDonalds yesterday because you gave me that stupid toy.

Sincerely,

N.E.S. Garson

c and s got happy meals yesterday, too, believe that? should i tell you that the reactions in our home were totally reversed? c squealed at the cuteness of the dog(?) and walked off hugging and carefully kissing it's bobbling head. s tho, only said 'lame'. he went and got out his 2 or 3 more serious t-formers and surrounded the newer one with them, like, putting it to shame officially and publicly.
clearly it's an age thing. god bless n.
