With all the complaints about McDonald’s food being bad for us, you would think that business would be lousy at all of their franchise locations.
McDonald’s corporate attorney’s, who’ve been seen leaving Lawyer Rehab Lounges in droves after having to deal with things like this being lodged at them, are pretty thrilled to hear the good news from the US stock market.

Are you surprised? Even as some Previa-driving Mom’s continue to moan and complain about things like high-fat content, stupid amounts of calories being dispensed in Happy Meals, etc. etc., they’re obviously still the ones frequenting local McDonald’s drive-thrus. (Unless you can convince me that it’s not them.)
