They should have tried to get busy in the bathroom.

I'll bet $1 million they're lying about not being gay.

If in fact they are not gay, and just doing that as a stunt, that took some pretty big McNuggets.

However, the employee is said to have been overruled by other staff members and customers, meaning that they were allowed to stay.

And that is the right attitude to have.  I love it when people do things like this.

"Look at us--we're pulling a stunt at McDonald's! We're so hip and mature and amaze-balls!" Thank you for (intentionally or not) mocking gay people, you idiots.

Donnchadha: Are they eating off of chargers?


I believe so. And if they're pretending to be gay--which, given their attention-whoring, is highly likely--then they are committing another sin entirely and using a badly-wrinkled tablecloth. I'm a terrible gay myself--I don't fit all that many stereotypes--but even I know better than to use a tablecloth that looks so much like shiat. Also: What person in their right mind (gay, straight, bi, pansexual, whatever) would wear a tie and a short-sleeve shirt?

What? You mean people should put up with the stupid crap attention-whoring ass-clowns do in public? So I should be able to go into my local mall and juggle flaming torches in a G-string as a stunt if all I want is to see myself on the Internet? People should have to put up with that because it's "the right attitude?"

In my opinion, there's not enough of that happening. It's why I stopped going to malls.

If you get all butthurt because you see somebody doing something unusual, like putting down a tablecloth at McDonalds, you're too farking uptight.

Exactly. I love seeing random acts of expression, art, and/or stupidity. Life would be pretty boring without it.

This isn't "something unusual," nor is it "a random act of expression, art, and/or stupidity." This is, plain and simple, attention-whoring. And for as long as I've been on the Internet (which is a pretty goddamn long time) attention-whoring has been something to be shamed and mocked. I may get several kinds of butthurt, but it isn't without cause: These idiots are, whether they know it or not, mocking gay people like me who don't do shiat like that because it isn't even cutesy or romantic--it's posing for a camera.

I don't see a problem. I could swear the ketchup packets said "fancy" on them.

Or maybe it's a typo. "Fancy ketchup?" Then open the packet.

My wife-to-be and a couple of friends from high school and army cadets did this on 6 June 1976. It was the anniversary of D-Day, and that was the reason we gave the MacDonald's staff.
(This was at the first McDonald's restaurant opened outside the U.S. in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada.)

It was a few years after this, when they had renovated, adding inside seating.

if this mockery of your sexuality is really that offensive to you, then you are indeed wound too tight.  there are many more egregious mockeries to really be peeved about.  this is not one of them.

we heard you, we get it, being gay isn't special and it doesn't give you insight into other people's thoughts

A Non Amos: Should have been at Taco Bell. You know, because it was going to go down the shiatter anyways


I did that back in the 90's.  Brought all the china and silverware in a picnic basket.  Nothing says high class like a 7-layer burrito slapped down onto lace tablecloths and a silver hot sauce service.

I'm with you on this, this isn't support, it's a prank that diminishes the efforts of homosexuals just as a lark. Maybe these two are actually in love, but more likely they find it amusing to pretend to be so in a McD. God knows I played silly games with fast food joints as a kid.

I do find it odd that bringing their own cutlery was something that especially bothered the staff. Can any limey farkers shed light on this? Would this have seemed ok if they had gone to get the plastic utensils ?
 
2013-09-17 02:55:08 AM
The food looks like they brought it in. If that's true they should have been told to leave.
 
2013-09-17 03:09:04 AM
these kids are so stereotypical. are they really that attention starved? honestly i was all for the lgbt movement but now i dont know if its such a great idea to let kids believe its alright to have sexual feelings for their best friend. i mean look at these kids, theyre 'fine' dining at mcdonalds. what has this world come to?

I actually appreciate the unusual when done in a (relatively) non-obtrusive way.
Performers in Subways...goofy teenagers...people walking by you singing in an audible voice (provided they can carry a tune)...chalk-drawings on the sidewalk...hmm, what else...watching skateboarders/hackysack/gymnasts playing around in a small group...

late to the party csb:  In college I took a class called deviance and society and our class product was to be deviant and write about it.  I took a girl in the class, Joanna S.,  to McDonald's and set up a table with a tablecloth, flatware, candles and napkins.  She wore a dress and I wore a suit.  I had a #3 with a coke.  I forget what she had.  We got some stares, but very few comments, though one lady did mention to Joanna, "You are a really lucky girl."

We got an A.
