Some busy body in Santa Clara County suggested banning Happy Meal toys
the proposal would forbid the inclusion of a toy in any restaurant meal that has more than 485 calories, more than 600 mg of salt or high amounts of sugar or fat. In the case of McDonald's, the limits would include all of the chain's Happy Meals — even those that include apple sticks instead of French fries.
I wonder what the environmentalists would think because the inevitable result (should this pass) would be for the “dozen fast-food restaurants within the jurisdiction of the board” to receive their evil corporate meal packages from the distributor and then extract the plastic toy and throw it into the garbage, unused. Then again, on the bright side it would “create or save” one job for the guy who gets to sit and sift the fun out of each Happy Meal before they are handed out.
