That's what happens when you look to Fox for information, subby. Check The Plain Dealer and you see it's more than a dozen restaurants making the offer, none of which is McDonalds.

The FNN article actually says the same thing.  The only mention of McD's is in the title and description of what Ramsey was up to when he heard the cries for help.

The newspaper says Ramsey was traveling and would get his "Chuck Card" when he returns.
 
Turnover.   Get back on D buddy.

That's why I always Google stuff before clicking on a link from Faux News.

Well that is pretty cool. However, he does need to watch his waistline. And, he'll probably have to pay for the rest of the meal. But still - quite a perk, if handled carefully.
 
2013-05-23 11:56:18 AM  
Hmm, if subby is right, you could call that a dead giveaway.
 
2013-05-23 11:56:56 AM  
The article says nothing about free McDonald's.  Save your "faux" anger for the subby.

I thought you American's called all burgers "McDonalds". Like you call all carbonated beverages "Coke".

I would think there would be a better way to honor this guy actions other than trowing fast food at him.

It's a farking AP story, kids. Get over yourself and be happy a hero's getting rewarded.

So your brains aren't violated by the Murdoch and Koch-powered mindrays, here's the same exact story with the same headline on the Washington Post:

I've never heard that, so I'd have to say it's not particularly prevalent.
 
2013-05-23 12:10:23 PM  
Yeah, in 6 months it will be "Charles who?. Get the manager, this guy is refusing to pay his tab."
 
2013-05-23 12:10:25 PM  
Holy crap, I'd never seen a picture of this guy before (have kids, tend to avoid all the drama the news shows are so intent at cramming into our heads). Didn't know he was Lootie from Katrina.

I question his "hero" status only because he got the hero tag on fark. Is that ironic?

That's how we rolled in Cali when I grew up.

"coke"
"What kind?"
"root beer"

Nope, when call 'em "Johnny Kick-Asses" as in, "Five minutes after I eat this here black bear in one swaller and poop out his skeleton, I'll be hungry again.  That's why I always keep a Johnny Kick-Ass wrapped in old glory in the glove box of my Escalade".

Calling it "Coke" is a southern thing.

Actually is other parts of the south too, as well as parts that think they're the south.  I grew up outside of Indy and it's like this there too.

But no, we don't call burgers McDonalds.  I haven't had a McDs burger in years.  Sausage and egg biscuits on the other hand are a couple times a year treat.

Then I'll have to say that's idiotic, and reflects poorly on us as a nation.

Now pardon me while I get into my Rolls Royce.

Click on the linked restaurant names in the Plain Dealer article.  Those places will make a black dishwasher eat in the kitchen.  They're not rewarding him, they're exploiting him.

Paid leave for a dishwasher's travel... that's hilarious!

Still waiting for him to start catching up on his back child support.

Why does the Philadelphia police chief need free food? Last time I saw him he looked like he'd indulged in a bit too much McDonalds as it was.  What, has he gone on a diet since he left DC?

/didn't RTFA so I know there's some important detail I'm missing

No, you can call it by name but if you just mean "soda" or "pop" you say "coke".

You wouldn't say "I'll have a 7-up pop" would you?

Angel Cordero says he was the first to help Amanda Berry break out of the West Cleveland home in which she and three others were being held captive.

So what? How about you learn how to speak English so people know what the hell you're jabbering about?

More like when you go to the fridge you ask "Anyone else want a coke?" and you'll get back answers of "Yeah, Dr Pepper", "Sprite!", "Coke"

I've always found that sharp cutoff in Kentucky (more or less along I75) to be fascinating.  I'm to the west of it, and "carbonated beverages" are all Coke to me.

"Hey, want a coke?"

"Sure, what've you got?"

"Dr. Pepper, Big Red, and Coca-Cola."

The implied assumption for us southerners is that you indeed prefer Coke as your first choice so we say "Do you want a coke?" And it falls upon you to say no, I want  "X" instead, but peopl are too lazy to say "No, Ill have a..." they just say yes in which case a Coke is brought out or they say yes to the implied soft drink and then just override the Coke suggestion with their own preference.

Not that hard people.

Yep. This is what happens when a Fark Libbie sees a Fox News link, and refuses to click it. They look more ignernt than normal.

Also, subby, reading IS fundamental.

It's "coke" or "soda". Pop just sounds ridiculous.

And nowhere in the US have I ever heard anyone refer to "McDonald's" as a generic term for a burger.
