“Every time you have McDonald’s as a kid, it’s a victory”

Kids often enjoy fast food; for adults, it’s an admission that they can’t (or won’t) cook. “Every time you have McDonald’s as a kid, it’s a victory. Every time you have it as an adult, it’s a defeat” was written by Graham Linehan on Twitter on August 22, 2012. The tweet quickly went viral.


Wikipedia: McDonald’s
McDonald’s is the world’s largest chain of hamburger fast food restaurants, serving around 68 million customers daily in 119 countries across 35,000 outlets. Founded in the United States, the company was founded in in 1940 as a barbecue restaurant operated by Richard and Maurice McDonald. In 1948, they reorganized their business as a hamburger stand using production line principles. Businessman Ray Kroc joined the company as a franchise agent in 1955. He subsequently purchased the chain from the McDonald brothers and oversaw its worldwide growth.
