Driver Stopped With Sheep In Car Tells Police He Was Taking It To McDonald’s For A Treat

Driver Stopped With Sheep In Car Tells Police ‘I Was Taking It To McDonald’s’ – London Telegraph


Police who stopped a motorist were stunned to discover a sheep in the boot of the car – which the driver claimed he had taken to McDonald’s for treat.

The incident occurred in North Yorkshire when officers from the local roads policing group stopped the driver of a Peugeot 206 on suspicion of driving with two bald tyres.

But when they looked more closely at the vehicle they notice an unusual passenger in the hatchback boot of the car, a fully grown sheep.

When questioned why he was travelling with the animal in a family hatchback the motorist explained that he had taken it to a nearby McDonald’s restaurant for a meal.

A spokeswoman for North Yorkshire Police said: “He told the officer, ‘some people take their dogs in their cars, I take my sheep’. He [the motorist] just wanted to go for a drive-through at McDonalds.”

The driver is thought to have been stopped shortly after a visit to the fast food restaurant at Leeming Bar services on the A1 in North Yorkshire.



Yes, In-N-Out Burger is vastly overrated!

Reading Wombat over at The Other McCain I came across his review of a certain burger chain, and I must agree with his summation

A lot of pixels have been lavished by a lot of fanboys and fangirls on how great In-N-Out Burger is; how it uses only fresh ingredients prepared to your order; how its “secret menu” is so awesome. At the risk of enraging said fanboys, I frankly didn’t think it was all that. I ordered a double-double protein style (no bun) and sampled the fries (for SCIENCE!), and to be honest, neither the burger nor the fries impressed me. It’s not that there was anything bad about either one, but they just didn’t live up to the hype. Comparing them to Five Guys, I give the advantage to the latter: In-N-Out does not have bacon, their fries are inferior to Five Guys’ peanut-fried version, and Five Guys has more variety in the available Coke product.

No bacon? How can a burger place even open without having bacon?

Boy THAT headline will cause many to launch into “what did he say” mode! But, it is my opinion, and I am sticking to it. I recall a couple of years ago when the famed In and Out Burger first came here to North Texas everyone was over joyed. So, I, in the name of research, because science matters, visited In-N-Out, and came away unimpressed. It was not bad, it was good, but the “best burger ever”? No way. In fact, if I did a best burger chains list………

1  Five Guys- not even close! And the fries? MAN!!

2 Steak and Shake- Steak Burgers! And those shakes!!

3 Wendys- Just really good burgers, good fries too

4 Karls Jr- Great ads, very good burgers, and excellent fries

4 Sonic- Love the concept and the food, Tater Tots Baby!

5 Whataburger- So many options, In-N-Out could take a lesson

6 Jack in the Box- Great ads, and their sirloin burgers rock

7 Braums- The BEST shakes, good burgers, and crinkle cut fries!

8 In-N-Out- Good, not great. Two words MORE CHOICES!

No, I did not list McDonalds or Burger King, do I really have to say why? McDonalds, at one time had the best fries, now they are flavorless, and Burger King is OK, but do they understand the concept of EXTRA pickles? or extra mayo, or extra mustard, or no onions? They certainly do not when I eat there.



Pantless Perv Jailed After Masturbating At McDonald’s Drive-Thru, Grabbing Cashier

Pantless Driver Jailed After Masturbating In Wildwood McDonald’s Drive Thru – Weekly Vice

Steve Orville Clemons, a 69-year-old Florida man, was jailed late last month after he allegedly masturbated in a McDonald’s drive-thru while attempting to force the cashier to touch him.


According to police, Clemons was picking up an order at a McDonalds drive-thru in Wildwood late last month when the drive-thru cashier who was assisting him saw that he had no pants on and was masturbating inside his car.

Investigators say the cashier had turned to hand Clemons his change when he suddenly grabbed her hand and attempted to pull it into his vehicle.

The employee immediately yanked her hand away, closed the window and called 911.

Officers searched the area and located Clemons at a nearby gas station. When officers approached the vehicle, Clemens was still seated in his vehicle without any pants – although he did manage to find a t-shirt which was placed on his lap.

Clemons was booked into the Sumpter County Jail and charged with battery. He was released a short time later after posting $500 bail.

Your Daley Gator Feel-Good Story O’ The Day

Unlucky Thugs Target Texas Man With Heightened Sense Of Awareness… And A Concealed Carry Permit – The Blaze

Two unlucky thugs attempted to carjack a concealed carry permit holder in Houston, Texas, on Tuesday. The miscalculation turned out to be deadly as the would-be victim shot and killed one of the criminals and wounded the other.

After returning a movie at a Redbox kiosk outside of a local McDonald’s, the man was approached by two suspects who attempted to steal his car for the rims, according to police. The suspects also took his cellphone and car keys, KTRK-TV reports.


The man was forced out of his car and pushed down. What the aggressive criminals didn’t know was that he was a concealed carry permit holder and had his firearm on him.

Sensing the situation was dire, the man drew his handgun and opened fire. He fatally shot one of the robbers and wounded the other suspect with two or three shots, according to KTRK-TV. The second suspect fled the scene and had not been apprehended.


The carjacking victim told KHOU-TV he didn’t want to appear on camera but said he was doing OK.

A grand jury will “consider whether deadly force was necessary to avoid his own death or harm,” KTRK-TV notes. However, the station’s legal analyst says it appears to be a clear-cut case of justifiable homicide.

It is not uncommon for residents in the north Houston neighborhood to be extra cautious in the area.

“It is kind of odd being right out in the open. I guess people and the desperate need of people nowadays,” Dedrick Moore, who visits the same McDonald’s regularly, told KHOU-TV. “They give up hope and try to go any other way to get their means.”

“I am always checking my area. Looking around knowing what is going on around me,” he added.

It was that same vigilant mentality that possibly saved the life of the Houston man who refused to be a carjacking victim.

*VIDEO* Psycho Bitch From Hell Attacks McDonald’s Employees Because They Don’t Sell McNuggets In The Morning


Nanny Staters target McDonalds on hospital grounds

Have you ever heard of Corporate Accountability International? No? I had not either until I came across this story

The Cleveland Clinic doesn’t hire smokers, banned transfats from the food it serves and took sugary soft drinks out of vending machines as part of an effort to emphasize the health in health care. McDonald’s may be going next.

Corporate Accountability International chided 20 health-care facilities, including the Cleveland Clinic and Houston’s Texas Children’s and Ben Taub hospitals, for having the fast-food chain on their sites.

The consumer group urged the hospitals in a letter Tuesday to end their contracts with McDonald’s and “stop fostering a food environment that promotes harm, not health.”

Sound familiar? Sure, it seems that every day some new group of busy bodies is trying to force their will on everyone else. And, sadly, it also seems that every day, some corporation or city council is bowing to these Nanny Staters! And, frankly, this is helping to destroy this nation.

Take this case. McDonalds has salads, apples, yogurt, and smoothies on their menu. And, of course, no one is forced to dine at McDonalds are they? And, we all know about what a blessing the Ronald McDonald House is right? But,that matters not to the Nanny Staters. They will not be sated until they dictate to all of us what we eat, and how much we eat.

Personally, I wish these hospitals, and every other corporation would tell this pack of control freaks to go take a flying leap.


Evil Capitalists 1, Nanny Staters 0

H/T to The Lonely Conservative


The nannies in San Francisco thought it would be a good idea to ban toys in McDonald’s Happy Meals to force kids to eat healthier. Not only did the plan backfire, the kids whose parents used to just fork over a couple of bucks for the toy, and skipped the meal, now have to buy the meal to get the toy. SF Weekly explains:

It turns out San Francisco has not entirely vanquished the Happy Meal as we know it. Come Dec. 1, you can still buy the Happy Meal. But it doesn’t come with a toy. For that, you’ll have to pay an extra 10 cents.

Huh. That hardly seems to have solved the problem (though adults and children purchasing unhealthy food can at least take solace that the 10 cents is going to Ronald McDonald House charities). But it actually gets worse from here. Thanks to Supervisor Eric Mar’s much-ballyhooed new law, parents browbeaten into supplementing their preteens’ Happy Meal toy collections are now mandated to buy the Happy Meals.

Today and tomorrow mark the last days that put-upon parents can satiate their youngsters by simply throwing down $2.18 for a Happy Meal toy. But, thanks to the new law taking effect on Dec. 1, this is no longer permitted. Now, in order to have the privilege of making a 10-cent charitable donation in exchange for the toy, you must buy the Happy Meal. Hilariously, it appears Mar et al., in their desire to keep McDonald’s from selling grease and fat to kids with the lure of a toy have now actually incentivized the purchase of that grease and fat — when, beforehand, a put-upon parent could get out cheaper and healthier with just the damn toy.

I love it! AGAIN, Nanny Staters are exposed as nothing but meddling morons who are so intent on running our lives that the cannot even think straight.


The DaleyGator supports our friend, Donald Douglas

Donald who blogs at American Power is under attack by the miscreant thugs on the Left who preach tolerance and diversity, until they find someone who dares disagrees with them. Then they set out to destroy that person’s credibility, reputation, and career. Donald has a summation here. Go offer him encouragement and support.

At Bob Belvedere’s Camp of the Saints, “Right Wing Bloggers Under Relentless Attack:

Donald’s enemies have even started a blog to harass him with [ — I will not dignify their deplorable behavior with a ping].

That Donald is heated in his words is understandable: these people have attacked his honor and dignity and some are trying to get him fired [see here for the latest vile attempt to get him terminated from his job and here]. The man is under threat from several redoubts. Also, he realizes that what they are doing is what Leftists have done throughout history and he knows well that, if they can get away with it regarding him, they will be emboldened to increase the intensity and scope of their attacks on others of the Right. His attackers are the mongers of fear. They are the merchants of intimidation. All opposition must be silenced. Donald Douglas must be utterly destroyed.


Be sure to read the whole thing. I really appreciate the support.

McDonalds has surrendered to Michelle Obama and her Food Patrol!

(Reuters) – McDonald’s Corp said on Tuesday it will soon tweak its children’s Happy Meals, reducing the French fry portion by more than half and automatically adding apples to the popular meals, after coming under pressure from consumer groups to provide healthier fare.

McDonald’s — which consumer groups say should lower calories, sugar and sodium in its meals for children — said that it would start making the changes in September and that the new Happy Meals would be available in all of its 14,000 U.S. restaurants by the first quarter of 2012.

The world’s largest hamburger chain also said it would reduce sodium, added sugars, saturated fats and calories across its entire U.S. menu by 2020.

“We are going to be casting our gaze more closely on portion management as well as how we can introduce more food groups such as fruits, vegetables and whole grains,” Cindy Goody, McDonald’s senior director of nutrition, said on a webcast.

The new child’s French fry portion will be 1.1 ounces, down from 2.4 ounces previously. The new child’s fry portion has about 100 calories, the company said.

The new apple portion includes a half-cup of peeled fruit and has no added sugar or accompanying dipping sauces.

The move will reduce calorie counts for Happy Meals by about 20 percent. As a result, the new Happy Meals will be well under 600 calories.

Now, if McDonald’s wants to put apples in every Happy Mean, fine, but you know damned well this action was caused by government pressure, and that is a terrible trend that will only serve to erode liberty and of course, increase the pull of the Nanny Statists.

McDonald’s Corp. CEO Jim Skinner:

“We believe in the democratic process and our government officials believe in the democratic process,” he said to applause from the audience of McDonald’s shareholders. “This is about choice, this is about personal, individual right to choose in the society we live in. That’s where we play, that’s where you play, and we have every right to do so.” more at Hot Air

Here is a video from the Hot Air link, Cavuto trying to talk some sense to John Banzhaf a full on Nanny Stater. Listen to this wacko, and imagine that he ever wield real power over your life, shudder at that though. Of course for this Nanny Stater, it is all about the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Banzhaf was one of the first trial lawyers to propose health-related litigation against tobacco companies. As executive director of Action on Smoking and Health (ASH), Banzhaf pays himself over $200,000 per year in salary and benefits. That’s in addition to his professor’s salary. While he claims he “won’t see a dime” from food lawsuits, he said the same about tobacco torts many years ago. ASH sells tobacco “lawsuit kits” for $25 each.

While he’s still collecting hefty checks from ASH, Banzhaf now receives more attention for his frivolous scheme to bleed restaurants dry. First attacking fast-food in July 2002, Banzhaf served as an adviser to a lawsuit filed by New York attorney Samuel Hirsch on behalf of Caesar Barber — a morbidly obese man whose health suffered because of his poor diet and lack of exercise. Barber’s suit claimed McDonald’s was to blame because he ate too much.

After the Barber suit was laughed out of the court of public opinion, Hirsch and Banzhaf went back to the drawing board for their second multi-billion-dollar fishing expedition. This one used children as the bait. The trial judge dismissed the case, writing: “If a person knows or should know that eating copious orders of super-sized McDonald’s products is unhealthy and may result in weight gain, it is not the place of the law to protect them from their own excesses.”

Banzhaf has lost every obesity-related case he’s been involved in, but that hasn’t stopped him from falsely claiming “victory.” In order to mislead the public into thinking obesity lawsuits are sensible and mainstream, he’s bragged about several so-called “wins” in these cases. One of his self-proclaimed “victories” (over mislabeled ice cream containers in Florida) resulted in customers being offered two free desserts for every one they had purchased. In another case, brought against McDonald’s for not listing beef tallow as a French-fry ingredient, Banzhaf himself admitted that it wasn’t really an obesity suit: “Now, notice,” he told a 2003 food policy conference in Washington, DC, “This is not, first of all, an obesity case. I mean, this wasn’t the problem. We couldn’t prove that anybody got fat, or that anybody got sick.” His other obesity “victories” are just as flimsy.

Banzhaf threatens so many obesity-related lawsuits against food companies that it can be hard to keep track. In June 2003 he sent letters to six fast-food chains demanding that they display “warning” notices about the allegedly “addictive” nature of fatty foods. He even claimed that fast food “can act on the brain the same way as nicotine or heroin.” One month later, Banzhaf teamed up with the Center for Science in the Public Interest to warn six ice cream chains that lawsuits could result from their refusal to immediately “list the calorie (and, ideally, saturated fat) content of each item” on their menus and menu boards.

He even threatened to sue the Seattle School Board — and individual school board members — for making soft drinks available to teenagers in school. Banzhaf has also discussed going after milk producers because the famous “Got Milk?” ads don’t mention the benefits of skim milk. Just as cream rises to the top, John Banzhaf can always be counted on to sink as low as possible.

McDonalds Serves Up McWeddings – Yahoo News

In the buzzing financial hub known for its fast living, young Hong Kong couples can now grab love on the run at the city’s McDonald’s outlets, which are offering a burgeoning new sideline: “McWeddings.”

On Valentine’s Day at a downtown McDonald’s close to the financial district, the fast food joint was decked out with pink balloons, a “cake” stacked from apple pies, as well as a pair of tiny souvenir crystal M rings, for a surprise engagement bash thrown by Kelvin, a young model, for his girlfriend, Ashley.

The party is the first formal wedding event since the service was launched in January.

McDonald’s says the concept isn’t tacky and fills a niche in Hong Kong, where its restaurants are popular dating venues and the prices for more typical weddings run high.

“They date here, they grew their love here, so when they have this important day they want to come over here,” said Shirley Chang, the managing director of Hong Kong’s McDonald’s outlets.

The McDonald’s “Warm and sweet wedding package,” at HK$9999 ($1282) a pop, includes wedding gifts, pink invitation cards emblazoned with golden arches, decor featuring the likes of Ronald McDonald and the Hamburglar, and classic golden arches fare worth up to $385.

Additional items will cost extra, including a “white balloon” gown rental ($165), balloon corsage ($11), balloon wedding cake ($88), and a large pink McDonalds backdrop ($321).

“You can see the world changing, especially the young generation,” Chang told Reuters.

“They’re looking for out-of the-box thinking and ideas.”

With two wedding parties confirmed for this year and around 70 other couples in talks, the American fast food giant is hoping this sideline will take off at a time of economic uncertainty, particularly with traditional Chinese weddings and banquets often imposing a huge financial burden on young couples.

“I think it’s the best value for money,” laughed Chang. “Definitely.”

Just when you thought the Leftards could not get any more inane………..

They pull a stunt like staging a beheading of Ronald McDonald!

(Daily Mail)– Campaigners for ethically-produced food provoked fury today by releasing an Al Qaeda-style spoof video in which they are seen holding Ronald McDonald hostage.

Five members of the Finnish group, who call themselves the Food Liberation Army, are seen in black balaclavas with the fictional McDonald’s figurehead distinctive in the foreground, despite wearing a hood.

The spokesperson threatens to execute the character if the fast food chain refuses to answer questions about how it produces its products.

Yep, these ARE today’s Marxist Moron winners!

Busy bodies, every last one of them.

DOVER — Local activists are putting forth a petition this week requesting the retirement of longtime fast food icon Ronald McDonald.

The Retire Ronald campaign, part of the Value the Meal Campaign effort initiated by Corporate Accountability International, is taking aim Thursday at McDonald’s franchises in three locations around the nation, including Portsmouth.

Sriram Madhusoodanan, the Portsmouth organizer with Corporate Accountability International, said the organization targets aggressive marketing aimed at children that promotes unhealthy food and therefore plays a significant role in dietary diseases in children.

“We’re trying to put an end to that aggressive marketing,” he said.

…According to a statement from Corporate Accountability International, the effort is fueled by a growing number of children who are overweight or obese, which predisposes them to “a lifetime of debilitating conditions from diabetes to heart disease.”

How about the threat to liberty that Nanny Staters like these would be elitists pose?

If ObamaCare is so great……….

Then why are so many seeking waivers from it? Michelle breaks down the list of those who, for some reason, do not want to be SAVED by the greatest piece of legislation EVAH!

In early September, I noted the push by Obamacare promoter and Democrat Rep. Ron Wyden for a special state waiver from the very federal mandate he advocated for everyone else.

A few weeks later, McDonald’s finagled its own Obamacare waiver after warning federal regulators that it could be forced to drop its affordable health insurance plan for nearly 30,000 restaurant workers unless it got a pass.

In early October, the Obama administration announced it had granted waivers not only to McDonald’s, but also to several other firms and labor unions.

Now comes word that Torquemada HHS Secretay Kathleen Sebelius has approved a whopping 111 waivers for businesses of all sizes, along with more unions and other providers of health insurance. The escapees include employers of many low-wage and part-time workers whose health insurance plans would otherwise be dropped, including Darden Restaurants — the parent company of the Olive Garden and Red Lobster and other chains, which employ some 34,000 people.

Among the waivers recently granted were for employers like Darden Restaurants, which operates the Red Lobster and Olive Garden restaurants, for 34,000 of its workers. Federal officials have granted 111 waivers to employers, insurers and union plans, who are responsible for covering about 1.2 million people.

Darden said the waiver would allow it to offer employees access to affordable coverage as the health care law is started.

Also on the list: Carlson Restaurants, which owns T.G.I. Friday’s, and hair salon chain Regis Corp:

Without waivers, companies would have to provide a minimum of $750,000 in coverage next year, increasing to $1.25 million in 2012, $2 million in 2013 and unlimited in 2014.

According to HHS, waivers depend on “a series of factors including whether or not a premium increase is large or if a significant number of enrollees would lose access to their current plan because the coverage would not be offered in the absence of a waiver.”

Carlson Restaurants and Regis declined interview requests but e-mailed statements.

“Providing competitive health benefits to our team and their family members is a very important priority for us,” said Anne Varano, senior vice president for human resources and communication at Minnetonka-based Carlson. “The [Health and Human Services] waiver allowed us to continue providing health benefits to our team members at an affordable cost while giving us additional time to develop longer-term approaches. ”

Said a spokesperson at Minneapolis-based Regis Corp.: “Until [health care] reform is further solidified, it is premature to comment.”

Michelle has much, much more at her blog, go read the rest and then go ask your Liberal friends WHY? Why would so many be running from the Lightworkers biggest accomplishment?

Why does anyone need waivers from the greatest pieceof legislation ever?

Obamacare is so awesome, at least that is what we were told, that it just HAD to be passed, no matter what we wanted. It was a miracle, it was a blessing, it was for our own greater good! So why, should anyone be granted waivers to protect them from this wonderful bill?

Obamacare for me, but not for thee?

The New York Times reports that the Obama administration’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has been busy granting selective waivers to Obamacare’s mandates, restrictions, and requirements. The Times reports that, “To date, the administration has given about 30 insurers, employers and union plans, responsible for covering about one million people, one-year waivers on the new rules that phase out annual limits on coverage for limited-benefit plans, also also known as ‘mini-meds,'” and that “[a]mong those that administration officials hoped to mollify with waivers were some big insurers, some smaller employers and McDonald’s, which went so far as to warn that the regulations could force it to strip workers of existing coverage.”

How convenient, eh? HHS secretary Kathleen Sebelius can more or less unilaterally decide to whom the law applies and to whom it doesn’t — and when, where, and under what circumstances

Yes, how convenient indeed!
