Good natured clowns, fat children and bad parents.
Mc Donald’s at one point were asked to get rid of Ronald McDonald, their clown mascot. people believed that the fun figure influenced kids to want to eat there. we all know fast food isnt the best for us, there for, changing the mascot would make kids less interested in the un-healthy food. my first thought was....since when do kids get to choose what and where they eat? what are parents doing!? my second was, What about children with a fear of clowns. in my experience, there are a lot of people who have this unusual phobia. so, just how influential IS this said clown? obviously it has nothing to do with it, and parents these days have no backbones.
