I Gave At McDonald's

Next time I see one of those bell ringers, I’ll remind them where their $1.5 billion dollar gift actually came from… Happy Meals. I have bought, and will buy, enough of those to feed a small army. I wonder if I could claim McDonald’s expenses as a charitable donation?

WASHINGTON (AP) – The Salvation Army announced Tuesday that it is receiving the largest gift ever given to a charity – a donation likely to exceed $1.5 billion from the estate of Joan B. Kroc, widow of the founder of McDonald’s Corp.

That’s going to buy a bunch of really nice houses for the Salvation Army captains. Somehow that controversy never got legs…
