Monday Teeny Poll

McDonald's Happy Meal Toys


The man who jokingly tried to sell his kids on craigslist found a fairly unforgiving crowd here at Teeny Manolo.  With a majority of thirty-eight percent of the vote, you said that the police charging him with a crime was a bit much, but that he should never expect a comedy gig because trying to sell your kids for chuckles just isn’t cool.  Fifteen percent were fine with whatever punishment was meted out to him, and thirty percent thought the entire incident was just a big ol’ waste of time.

Now, it’s been all over the news that Santa Clara County in California is looking to pass a ban on McDonald’s Happy Meal Toys.  Not the Happy Meals themselves, just the toys, which they feel are contributing to childhood obesity by marketing the fatty meals to the most vulnerable of our society.

    They’re only going to be able to ban the toys in unincorporated areas of SCC, which means that parents will just take their kids to restaurants in actual cities to buy happy meals, meaning less revenue for the county. It will in no way impact childhood obesity.
