sunny side down

27 Mar

mcdonalds was an ocean,
so salty and feeling so good
livingroompainting3probably the smell of hash browns did it and then the sight of an american cheese slice oozing down an egg muffin side and the membraneous feel of that flattened egg in my mouth,the squirt of ketchup and gobble gobble gobble.
i hadn’t even touched the hash brown yet and even when i parked the mcmuffin and
manhandeld the hash brown in peace,
i still hadn’t sunk my eyes into the beautiful black abyss of my coffee,
but the last gulp had to happen,
and in a blink of 30 minutes
i was back on the street,
nothing but tumbleweed again.

    Did you know that the Golden Arches sued a couple in Scotland called McDonald for calling their little shop ‘McDonalds’?

      I had a clever reply, about Kroc and company being a kroc of *?/”, but wikipedia says Kroc didn’t even invent Mickey Dees.He joined in 1954. And so another of my santa clauses is turned to worms, but isn’t that in Germany?

      According to wikipedia, it wasn’t about the shop being called McDonalds. It was in 1996, when Mary Blair in Fenny Stratford, Buckinghamshire and I quote ”was forced to drop McMunchies as her trading name. Mrs. Blair did not sell burgers or chips. She said she chose the name because she liked the word munchies and wanted the cafe to have a Scottish feel. The cafe’s sign reflected this, featuring a Scottish thistle and a St Andrew’s flag. But in a statement to Mrs. Blair’s solicitors, McDonald’s said if someone used the Mc prefix, even unintentionally, they were using something that does not belong to them.”

      Mcinteresting I think.

        A totally different legal case, I assure you. 🙂

          Care to share it or maybe provide an electric link? I’m interested to know. Thanks.

            If I can find it. It was a minor cause celebre here in Scotland at the time, but maybe they got the gypsy’s warning that the Scottish courts wouldn’t even hear the case of someone not being able to use their surname on their shingle and it died a-borning.

            The big clown’s claim to anything beginning ‘Mc’ is a total load of McBollocks.

              Well that sure is a mouthful, a tasty one too! A sandwich of a sentence! I’ve never tasted one with the words gypsy, shingle, and borning all inside. All dressed! Thanks Marie.
