McDonald's thrives on conformity ― essential when serving approximately 47 million customers daily. Ideally, items get served in the same amount of time and with the same quality and cashier friendliness at every location, a sort of Stepfordian vision of perfection. The last thing any corporation craves is a breakdown in routine, something that's happened a lot at McDonald's in recent years. You know the company is crapping McNuggets over the following crazy eight:
8. Suing McDonald's for your fatness sounds ridiculous, but plaintiffs representing the family of two Bronx teenagers in an ultimately dismissed 2003 case were dead serious.
7. Claims of menacing crap found in food have dogged the chain for years, but few have the gross-out potential of this month's discovery of a two-inch nail in a burger at a McDonald's in Gothenburg, Sweden.
