Aren't there labor laws that prevent 13 year olds from working at McDonald's? Sounds odd to me....

I saw this on TV. Sounds like a wild guy.

Did we give up when the Germans bombed Kabul?

I guess each state/province is different, but I was able to have a paper route when I was 12. My parents had to sign something or other about it tho'.

You'd be surprised how often this happens. Syngman Rhee, President of South Korea in the late 40's and the 50's was an American citizen in California bagging groceries. Mind you, Rhee was inserted by the Americans for the most part, unlike this kid. Still, it's interesting to think that someone working at your local McDonalds or bagging groceries at the local IGA may one day have massive power in a nation years from now.

Sam: interesting =scary, yet wonderful

and in another note: McDonalds "food" = domestic terrorism

This is pretty cool.

The resemblence was very slight. But his story is interesting.

Local Boy makes good. Film at eleven...

I thought he looked more like Jon Lovitz.

Yeah. That's the ticket.

Sounds to me like his family couldn't handle him and dumped him on a plane to Afghanistan. "Son, if you get in trouble just one more time and don't stop eating cheeseburgers , we're sending you to a miserable impoverished third world country"

Is this good or bad?
2001-11-13 04:45:40 PM  
I thought I heard "He ate at the local McDonald's."

But I'm probably not wrong and ignoring certain clues.

If he was 13 and working at a local McDonald's,they may have said that he ate there to protect the restaurant...?

Ahh, for the good old days when typos in headlines were the exception, not the rule.

Bring on the greengrocer's apostrophes!!

"Knowledge is good"

I think he might have moved to somewhere in Jersey after two years (this program was from the Allentown area, which granted isn't very far away, but it's in PA). I seem to remember him being is US longer than just two years (I saw me that there National Geographic television program). I mean he worked at a Mickey D's and rode a motorbike, so be must have been older than 13. Maybe the Billy Joel song is really about him.

Ten bucks says he's the next president/king/whatever of Afghanistan.

I have this mental image of Belushi in a turban, just totally blazed on 'opie', giving his troops a pep talk: "What?! Over? Did you say over? NOTHING is over until WE decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? HELL, NO!"
