Serving of the Week

6/07/2010 Posted by Mel Got Served No comments

Name: McDonald's
SERVED: Two weeks ago my dad went into a McDonald's and happily came out with his $2 Shrek collectible glass (even if he wanted Puss in Boots but got Donkey). Well now my dad's smile will have to go away and he will be relegated to drinking from some plain old boring glass.

On Friday, McDonald's issued a major recall for 12 million Shrek collectible glasses because the ink has cadmium which is poisonous. McDonald's, the famous American franchise, went the el cheapo route and got a bunch of shitty glasses made in China and will now have to pay the price. First they took our jahbs, now they took our Shrek collectible glasses. McDonald's, you got SERVED for being cheap and not being smart enough to realize if you make cheap glasses for China so you can add on a ridiculous mark-up, chances are they might be tainted. Plus, isn't it appropriate to SERVE a company whose slogan is "Over a billion SERVED"?

Think someone should get SERVED? Leave your ideas in the comments section, email me, or hit me up on Twitter or Facebook.
