One of the more amusing stories of late involves McDonald’s to-the-letter interpretation of a San Francisco ordinance that forbids eateries to give away toys: Mickey D has started charging a dime for the little plastic (or whatever) tchotchke, which is then donated to the Ronald McDonald House. The Board of Supervisors, I think it’s safe to assume, is on par with other governmental bodies when it comes to dealing with the Law of Unintended Consequences.
Anyone who doesn’t feed their children organic, free-trade, gluten-free, sugar-free, fat-free meals made fresh from scratch for every single meal is a fucking monster. Children shouldn’t be allowed to eat anything that might possibly taste good, nor should they be allowed to play with cheap plastic toys. Handmade, hypoallergenic crafts made from sustainable sources that don’t have sharp corners and don’t promote the cisgendered, heteronormative, neurotypical White patriarchy is good enough for my kids and should be good enough for everyone else’s.
Question: Did “squinko” miss anything there?
