  2. Well don’t sit there on all your blue chip marketing experience, bring back the McFeast…

    I bought a McOz mistakenly thinking of the McFeast only to find vile beetroot in it…

    You better watch out Macca’s – you wil soon have Melinda Tankard Reist and the rest of her Maude Flanders impersonating cohorts shrieking won’t you please think of the children.

    Background: Maude Flanders was a devout Christian who once attended a Bible camp to learn how to be more judgmental. I do not think Melinda needs to go to bible camp
