You may remember, a while ago I wrote to McDonald’s about the sandwich-which-can-not-be-named. I got an envelope in the mail the other day from my McFriends, and I thought “Sweet! A reply about the McGang-Bang! A real letter!”
Well, I was wrong. It was some sort of reply/advertisement/spam all rolled into one. I was very disappointed. Then, I noticed that the letter wasn’t to Mr. AiXeLsyD, it was to Mr. Carroll… it must have been about the McDonald’s on West Liberty Avenue’s disgusting restroom? They never did follow up on a local level like they said they would. Instead, I get this advertisement for the Mac Snack Wrap and the breakfast dollar menu? Seriously?
At least now I have a contact name. I’m going to have to resort to snail mail to get a response for a real live person, I believe… anything other than the stupid “we can’t take unsolicited ideas” form letter would be awesome.
Oh well, the advertisement letter & a scan of the two coupons is below… I popped a “void” on them in hopes that Photobucket doesn’t delete the damn things. They’ve removed old coupons on me before… I usually always blur out any numbers or barcodes that might make them usable.
Wow, I’m so honored to be contacted with such an auspicious reply! I’m glad that my contact in 2009 gave them an opportunity to better understand my needs and expectations! …that were never properly addressed. I’ve already seen the Mac Snack Wrap commercials and billboards, so I’m now sure how this letter makes me among the first to know… perhaps there are some people in Appalachia and in Alaska that aren’t familiar with the concept of snacking on “a whole new level”. I’d like to see some sort of chart on the levels of snacking. Are they the opposite of Dante’s levels of hell? Or, perhaps… one in the same? [Insert your own joke about gluttony here.] I”ll perhaps have to address this in future missives.
In the mean time, I’m making a call to all of my readers… if you can make me a chart of the levels of snacking, it would be greatly appreciated! I’d love to share it with everyone.
Maybe next time, I’ll go with the angle that I find the proliferation of “Mc” to be disturbing to those of us with Celtic heritage…
