Happy Meal 2.0: McDonald's to Cut Back on Fries

San Francisco became the nation's laughingstock — and public enemy No. 1 for children — when it rolled out the controversial Happy Meal ban. You might recall the epic Daily Show episode where Aasif Mandvi gave the man behind the ban, Supervisor Eric Mar, crap for taking the happy out of the Happy Meal simply because he couldn't tell his daughter no when the seductive powers of the plastic-wrapped toys called to her.

But now San Francisco is getting the last laugh, because McDonald's took the ban seriously. Buckling under the pressure, it announced it will begin rolling out a decisively healthier Happy Meal in September.
