I tuned into CNN this morning to see if they would report on how everyone is doing in Haiti.
You know, since they are experiencing Round Two of God's Wrath.
But the top story this morning was on San Francisco yanking toys out of the Happy Meals.
Most likely God's Plan to punish children of LGBTQ parents, I'm guessing.
I'm sure you know, that in SF now you cannot include a toy or special incentive with a meal if there is more than 600 calories and if more than 30% of the calories come from fat and I think there is something in there about you have to have so many servings of fruits and/or vegetables, but I'm not totally sure on that.
Jake watched the story, and asked if they were saying what he thinks they're saying. I told him that one city was taking the toys out of Happy Meals because the food is so unhealthy.
"Oh", he said. "Well, I guess we don't need to go to McDonald's anymore if I'm not going to get a toy".
From the mouths of babes.
It's not so much the food, it's the toy. At least with my kid.
"You can get chicken nuggets and fries anywhere. You can't get a toy just anywhere."
"So every time you ask for McDonald's, you want the toy, not necessarily the food?"
