Ronald McDonald wants Happy Meals back on the menu

The Examiner predicts what The City’s leaders, losers, and movers and shakers want from Santa.

Who: Ronald McDonald

What: A Happy Meal … in San Francisco

Why: The fast-food icon who is second only to Santa Claus in terms of recognition is not a happy camper. Happy Meals — which were under fire for offering toys and other incentives to appeal to children — are now banned in the City by the Bay unless they meet specific nutritional standards. An empire that was built on tasty, fatty and salty foods will now have to amend its ways — and we all know how hard it is to change a clown’s stripes.
