Happy Meals and the BBC

post by Michelle Griep
Ever since I watched Supersize Me, I haven't been a huge fan of McDonald's. Which brings us to a crossroads for today's post. There are two things to delve into: supersizing and McDonalds.

First off, while researching the Victorian era (yeah, guess what I'm working on next) I discovered a sweet little BBC show called The Supersizers. It's about a British couple who do a spin-off of supersizing through the eras. I watched The Supersizers Go Victorian wherein this husband and wife team eat and live nothing but Victorian for an entire week. The show documents their experiences. Pretty dang interesting, so give it a whirl.

Secondly, McDonald's. As I said, not my go-to for a meal out but it might be through February 15th. The toy in the Happy Meal will be a children's book. Yes! A real deal book. Customers receive either Paddington by Michael Bond, Clark the Shark Takes Heart by Bruce Hale, Happy Valentine's Day, Mouse! by Laura Numeroff and Felicia Bond, and Pete the Cat: Valentine's Day is Cool by Kimberly and James Dean.

Books are worth celebrating so grab your kid, a grandchild, or even some random rugrat off the street . . . wait a minute . . . bad idea. Always get the parents' permission first before you go yanking a young un' off to Mickey D's for a Happy Meal. Sheesh. What were you thinking?

But hurry. This dealio ends February 15.

I love when McDonald's gives away books. As often as my grandchildren eat there....not taken by me....they will no doubt receive one or more of these books.
