Damien on… A Woman Takes A Horse Into McDonalds…
I promise you the punchline to this one isn’t “Why the long face?” – it actually happened.
Apparently, you cannot go through a drive-through (or even “drive-thru”) on roller-skates, a bicycle or a horse – it has to be a car.
And when a Mancunian horse-woman was told this, she decided to go into the restaurant on foot – with her horse.
Unfortunately, the horse must have been nervous – Britain recently had problems when horse-meat was found in some of its burgers (not in McDonalds, this writer wishes to make clear – Ronald’s notoriously litigious) – because it did what any nervous animal does. All over the restaurant floor.
The whole thing ended up in court and according to the report I read, the woman received a “fixed penalty” – which was what freaked me out. I mean, fixed penalties are applied to COMMON misdeeds – like illegal parking, speeding and the like.
So how often DO people take horses into junk-food joints in Britain these days?
