So far, Troy is the only one to reply. While Troy’s submission is a valiant effort, I’d like to see more.
This is my second request, in which I will simultaneously be more stern in my request, and shamelessly plead for your participation. I know you’re out there reading. I hear things. I see traffic. I get notes/comments on other sites. I get comments here. Let’s pull it all together here, shall we?
This is what I need: I’d like a chart, graph, illustration, photos of a diorama, cartoon, audio recording, video, whatever you want to create… depicting the “whole new level” of snacking noted in this letter. Is it a top level? A side level? A hidden level? A secret level? A low level? You can even use some of my past McDonald’s-related posts for inspiration. Is the McGangBang on the map? Does snack level have a correlation with restroom cleanliness? Is the ketchup station a mess? Does Heinz’s opinion count?
Here’s what you get: Bragging rights. Well, that, and one of my “Be Our Guest” Cards that entitles you to a free Mac Snack Wrap. Why only one? Well, because I already used one… and really, do you need more than one Mac Snack Wrap? Plus, the letter suggested that I share one… so I am. Also, it gives me a twisted sense of satisfaction knowing that McDonald’s is (albeit indirectly) sponsoring their own ridicule.
How do we decide who wins? Well, again, this depends on you… the readers. I believe that I have the option to put up a poll… so once all submissions are in, the voting will go on for a week or so.
How it will go down: Let’s give it to Friday, Feb. 5th, 2010 to get submissions in to me. We’ll vote the following week, closing & announcing a winner on Friday, Feb. 12th. You’ll have your free Mac Snack Wrap just in time for Valentine’s Day… so you can show someone you love how cheap you are. You can get submissions to me by leaving them in the comments here (if you’re ‘net-savvy) or you can email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
So, we’re all clear on this, right?
