Hey it’s McHappy Day again this Saturday. On Saturday, one dollar of every Big Mac you eat will go to Ronald McDonald Children’s Charities in Australia. So go eat a bag full of Big Macs already!
Charter readers of the DR will recall we promoted the cause last year and even met a few hardy subscribers at the McDonald’s on Acland Street in St. Kilda for lunch. We’d consider doing it again!
But the important thing is to eat like a pig while you can, because it’s for a good cause. We are sometimes accused of believing in nothing but irony and cynicism. This is absolutely true, when it comes to large centralised government. But when you can do something positive in your little corner of the Universe, you should not pass up the chance.
And don’t give us any garbage about the rainforests or meat being murder. You might be right. But if you can’t bring yourself to eat a burger to help the families of children with cancer, then you are not an idealist at all but a grandstanding moral opportunist. So eat more beef on Saturday!
If you prefer more decorum with your dinner, keep your eyes out for an invitation later this week to our second annual Markets and Money Doomer’s Ball. Last year the readers of Australia demanded a Christmas party. We gave them one. We’re taking it to the next level this year. Details soon.
