List: How do the homeless cope without McDonald's dollar meals? 

Wednesday, Sep 15 2010

The Haight Street branch of McDonald's recently did away with the $1 menu, angering homeless people in the area who relied on the cheap fast food for sustenance. How are they dealing with the situation?

• Drafting document of beefs against McDonald's. God, beef sounds good

• Acting crazier than completely necessary when digging through McDonald's trash cans

• Now asking for more change

• Blocking entrance with human wall. Actually, just sitting there as usual

• Getting stoned before making any rash decisions

• Trying to remember what the "Dollar Menu" was, anyway

• Reading Fast Food Nation ... and licking the descriptions of meat

• Marching on City Hall, any day now

• Solo protest crying on sidewalk
