This is possibly the most unfunny page I have ever seen in my life.22.214.171.124 22:17, 21 Nov 2005 (UTC)

WHO THE HELL CHANGED IT!! they screwed it up! its a lot less funny where did the calories (trillions) people consume at mcdonalds thing
The menu part was so funny i craped my pants.
Each menu item should probably contain at least one "Mc". -- Mitch 1 2 03:22, 11 August 2006 (UTC)
FUNNY AS HELLEdit
All I could say about this page is LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You couldn't have told it any better. the even funnier thing about this page is its totally TRUE!!
Having so many quotes on a page is not funny. It's usually funny if there's one carfully chosen ORIGINAL quote at the top, but not if there's a ton of them, mostly about Macdonalds taste like shit LOL!'
Oh, and no more Oscar Wilde, that was funny the first time. Now it's not, especially because barely anyone on here knows about Oscar Wilde and his humour, and therefore has no idea how to use it. Putting a lame joke and crediting it to Oscar Wilde also is not funny.
I would like to add in a original quote my kind sir. "Hey dont flush that toilet! We can sell that turd as a mcnugget!" -overheard by the guy in the next stall listening to the manager.
McDrive Thru Edit
I do not understand why we need two POVs from the customer and not even one from the employee. I had added one a little ways back when I was still and IP and it got erased in the trimming of the fat instead of either of the two POVs from the customer. I think personally that it would make it funnier for the reader to see the comparison and contradictions in both of them when related to each other instead of having a redundant version of the same story. Plus I spent an hour and a half writing that just to see it erased when I am sure that any other ex-employee (or current) of McDonald's would find that version of the story much funnier. But of course I will not add it back up without permission. --Krystyoursavior 17:10, 20 November 2007 (UTC)
- According to recent statistics, for every McDonald's employee there are 254 fuck-ups per day. That leaves 12 satisfied customers a week. The Harvard Business School refers to this trend as "McDonalds doesn't give a flying fuck". In other words, "you get what you pay for". Or was it "eat shit and die". Whatever, customers outnumber employees 500,543 to one so actually we need about 43 more pov's from customers.--AnonymousIP 04:11, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
Still though, I'd like to add a pov from an employee once the article is off being frozen. I'm new, so not fully sure what I'm doing here. It could help people understand the situation better if they knew why their orders are wrong. It could also let them understand the human emotions that they send the employees through. Customers think they have it hard because they sometimes get one item when they order another. Customers have it easy, they don't have to hear themselves bitch for eight hours a day over trivial problems out of a sense of entitlement. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Jerryshadow (talk • contribs)
- You would have to make it so the POV was something funny to read. Besides, customers don't want excuses, they want service. You might even consider making another article (perhaps an UnScripts or a Why? for instance, Why?Your food order was wrong - it should be something funny to read, not a rant about how customers are unreasonable, or a rant about how you are asked to be doing too many things at the same time at lightning speed. Instead, show the reader what you are talking about, by creating a character that is the stereotypical unreasonable customer who changes his/her mind 20 times (note: weight of customer is irrelevant here, it is the characteristic of being impossible in his/her demands that we are focusing on). Then bring the character into play and bring them to life in an Unscripts. Or, write the Why? from a first person point of view as the employee, in an apologetic tone...taking the attitude that "I really really tried to get your order right, but it was really really hard". Give lots of details about why it was so hard, and how hard you tried to get that order right, but with all the difficulty you just couldn't do it. Try to sound like an Olympian on a day when they got a lower score than expected, and make the task sound truly Herculean, so that you come out sounding like an ideal employee with a job that is, to make a big understatement, less than ideal. -- 01:46, April 17, 2013 (UTC)
I made a page called McRoll and It's not that big, but if it gets deleted, can it be part of the McDonalds page?MrCleveland 17:41, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
In Relevance of Colonization Edit
I see a major problem of the article as it stands currently is the relevance of much of its parody. The article as a whole is a convuluted mess of conspirated rhetoric and psuedo-statistical (the local news report sort) silliness. I suggest, in the interest of humor that the in-universe style associated with corporate giants be passed over in the interest of a more Warhol-esque interpretation of what McDonalds has become, or at least something a bit more non-sequitir. If nothing else, the use of the Mc- as a prefix of demeaning mass-production of lacking quality is self-defeating in an article that supposed to be humorous, and not just comically cynical.

- Sooooooo.... Edit it!!! I'm suggesting we do it from a point of view of McD's being a Islamic plot which I think will mean we don't have to completely re-work the whole thing. We just need to convert some of the mess which remains into something a bit more structured. Some of the lists and the like in the article currently do contain some good ideas, and I think these can be made into something good without too much bother. I will be working on this more myself...

What happend to half of this page and why did it get deleted?MrCleveland 19:08, 17 July 2008 (UTC)
Funny shit here.
"please give it love by rewriting it." Um, HOW?!? It's fucking locked. Enchirito 19:21, 6 May 2009 (UTC) Why would anyone want to change it it's hilarious. But, I guess the fact that it's the truth could be construed as violating the regs. 126.96.36.199
- "the regs"? It was only protected from new and non registered users. It's not now, so edit away. Let's see what you do... MrN 08:39, Jul 16
This is beyond stupid. I have worked for McDonald's for over 5 years and probably make double in a year then all of you. McDonald's doesn't forces your fat asses to eat there, you just have no self control. Same when it comes to over weight kids, who is allowing their kids to each shitty food all day with out having any physical activities? That is the parents fault. I am 5'4 and 125 pounds, the only weight i gained while working for McDonald's is when i was pregnant. My son also gets to eat there every once in a while and he is not over weight because i make sure he is active and eats healthy also. Stop targeting a company when you don't understand all of the facts. Your just jelly that McDonald's is so big and you still live in your moms basement. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 188.8.131.52 (talk • contribs) 2011
