OriginEdit

McDonald’s is one of the world’s largest fast-food chains and private employers. Originally founded by the McDonald brothers as a hamburger stand and heavily remarketed by franchise agent Ray Kroc, it was officially founded on April 15, 1955. With the company’s rise in international markets, its golden arches have become synonymous with globalization and Americanism, but also obesity, corporate ethics and other social issues.

The Happy Meal itself was introduced as a marketing and logistics ploy. Managers picked up on the idea of having pre-assembled meals for children to ease production. Placing them in a colorful container with the additional promise of a toy made children feel special, let parents enjoy their own food and gave the business executives have a new marketable product.

EffectsEdit

The Happy Meal container can turn the users’ fat into actual food. The consumer will be unable to see any differences in their food. Rather, they will taste it as having more preservatives, less characteristic flavoring and a downright odd gummy texture. Eating too much of the food will make the eater sick, causing nausea, diarrhea, profuse sweating and other symptoms of gross unhealthiness.
