There is a saying that every hero needs a villain. Every yin needs a yang. Well, for hamburger hero Ronald McDonald, that villain is, and always will be, the Hamburglar. Donned in striped gear befitting hs criminal history, this man has been stealing hamburgers for years and will continue for the forseeable future. But while you may view him with disgust, I have just one question:
What if he is only stealing hamburgers to feed his starving family?
The media may want you to believe he is a common crook, but how accurate are they? Look at the source of this propaganda. Most of the rhetoric spewed about the rosy-cheeked burger thief has come from McDonald’s. Does that sound like an impartial source? I think not.
And yet we all sit back, cofortable with watching the character assasination before our eyes.
I hate to editorialize, but I can’t take any more bashing of this modern day Robin Hood. I, for one, have been blessed with food on he table throughout my life. Why should I judge a man that can’t make it work in a tough job market?
Maybe it’s time we turn the other sesame seed bun.
