...'cause a Guiteau Monday don't stop.
While folks are shooting one another in Applebee's parking lots in the 770, out West it's all about tricking for McNuggets:
A Los Angeles woman was arrested last week for allegedly offering sexual favors at a Burbank McDonald's in exchange for Chicken McNuggets. The woman, Khadijah Baseer, was seen opening customers' car doors in the drive through late Wednesday night, according to the Burbank Leader. Baseer was allegedly offering to swap sexual favors for the fast food item. It is not known what kind of tricks she was allegedly offering to perform for what quantity of the chicken-y fried treats, or if different levels of sexual engagement would yield a larger box of nuggets. One witness reported Baseer's unique proposition to the authorities, and the woman was arrested on suspicion of prostitution.
Neither of these seems super appropriate for the holiday. However, I'd like to take a moment to call bullshit on this meme: "If (dead social activist X) were alive today, (he/she) would support (my cause y) because, (Z, it's awesome). A textbook example of this bullshit via Eater. But try it!
"If Rev. Wilberforce were alive today, he would stand with us in opposing unslightly windmills off of Cape Cod, because he cherished the dignity of human existence."
"If Ralph Nader were alive today, he'd buy my free range eggs, because he wants his family, and all families, to be safe."
