Jason: Bad mascot reminds me of a fish story: ‘Jaws’

By Jason Offutt

McDonald’s has a new mascot for its Happy Meals. You know the Happy Meal, a hamburger/French fry/soda/toy combo that used to come with a cookie (cheapskates), that’s now a hamburger/cheeseburger/McNugget/French fry/apple slices/soda/milk/toy combo (although no child would order apple slices and milk on purpose).
That mascot is Happy. We’ll talk about Happy soon enough.
The McDonald’s corporation has always mystified and somewhat frightened me.

For the complete story, see the June 23 print edition of the Richmond News.
