McDonald's declares war on old people

You heard right! "Old people don't buy a lot and they take too long so screw 'em!" says Ronald McDonald, spokesman for the Multi-Gazillion dollar mega fast food giant.

"Let 'em eat at Wendy's," he continued, "who by the way is my illegitimate love child, note her red hair," he said. "Let them slow up her fast-food drive-thru lanes."

Mr. McDonald then climbed into a waiting police cruiser and showed the reporters how Ms. Merola looked out of the back seat of the police car and looked sad.

He climbed out and stated "We lost $25.00 in sales due to her disruption, we will seek restitution and will garnish her social security check if need be."

Police: Grandmother Arrested At McDonald's Drive-Thru For Not Pulling Car Forward

CLEARWATER, Fla. -- A 75-year-old woman was arrested at a Clearwater McDonald's drive-thru, because police say she wouldn't pull her car forward.

Authorities said Jean Merola, a grandmother of eight, was arrested for disorderly conduct after she refused an officer's orders to move her car while she waited for the coffee and fries she ordered at the drive-through window.

Merola said the McDonald's employees told her to wait there for her food.

Merola was handcuffed behind her back and put in the cruiser.

Another officer arrived and took her to the Pinellas County Jail .

Merola said she was searched, photographed and fingerprinted.

Jail records show she was released about 90 minutes later on her own recognizance
