Shaking Down Mayor McCheese


This lawsuit is exactly why the U.S. legal system needs to adopt the “loser pays” model for civil litigation. Ridiculous grifter [expletive deleted] like this would dissapear overnight.

McDonald’s sued over Happy Meals

Happy Meals are again under attack, this time in court.

The Center for Science in the Public Interest has filed a lawsuit against McDonald’s Corp., claiming that the company’s meals with toys unfairly entice children into eating food that can do them harm.

The Washington advocacy group warned McDonald’s in June that it would sue if the company did not stop providing toys with children’s meals that have high amounts of sugar, calories, fat and salt. The suit, filed in San Francisco Superior Court, seeks class-action status.

. . .

The lead plaintiff in the suit is Monica Parham, a mother of two from Sacramento who said the company “uses toys as bait to induce her kids to clamor to go to McDonald’s,” the organization said.

I know one thing for damn sure, if Monica Parham and the Center for Science in the Public Interest knew they’d have to pay McDonald’s attorneys’ fees when they lose this frivolous hamburglary extortion attempt, there’s no way in hell they’d bring this bull[expletive deleted] anywhere near a courthouse.

/and if Ms. Parham is such an unbelievably pathetic parent that she can’t even say no to her children, well, then maybe a visit from social services is in order

  1. I’d also hope that ridiculous lawyers who bring lawsuits like this would also disappear. Along with a bunch of other lawyers (generally referred to, sometimes quite literally accurately, as “ambulance chasers”).

  2. I am so tired of parents who can’t say no. If you don’t want them to eat the Happy Meal, don’t buy it for them. Unless they have a job and a car, YOU, the parent, are caving in.

  3. What do you mean I have to be responsible for my own children? We give these young single moms welfare from the get go and don’t make the fathers be responsible and then wonder why we end up with shit like this, get used to it this is just the tip of the iceberg.
