    McDonald's Goes Local

    Simply amazing that McDonald's is abandoning their traditional way of buying bulk foods. About time of having real farm fresh foods when I go to McD's. I will feel better about eating their food now.

    Leaked memos indicate that phase two will involve converting McDonald's parking lots into open-air public markets... and closing drive-thru lanes to vehicle traffic to form links in a global network of greenways.

    When confronted with the memos, Skinner clutched his chest and yelled, "You got me!" before cracking a broad smile. "...We can't turn a profit much longer by leasing real estate to our franchisees, so we're going to lease to market vendors instead. Now that's where the money's headed."
    Har har har!

    I also hear that they are going to become a vegetarian restaurant too.
