A Salute to Mayor McCheese

This is long overdue. There are very few constants in life, but Mayor McCheese is one of them. While the country endured the Vietnam War, you were here holding down the fort (or maybe it was the griddle). Inflation during the 70s? No problem for you. Blizzard of '78? Whoop-de-freakin-doo. The recession of the 90s? You never let it get to your buns. You never even bothered to do anything to safeguard your computer or data during the whole Y2K scare.

You're the Mayor of all Cheese and we salute you, Mayor McCheese.

SIDE NOTE: Thanks to the always "reliable" Wikipedia I learned that the whole McDonaldland thing of the 70s was a rip-off of the popular H.R. Pufnstuf program that used to run during Saturday cartoons. McDonald's had to shell out a million dollars to settle. Oh, and don't even get me started about the significance of "Pufnstuf" and the drug culture.

Ha ha! I was thinking of that when I made the Wikipedia comment. Thanks.

That sounded an awfully lot like a Bud Light commercial. I hope you are prepared for lawsuits of your own from those "real men of genius" guys.

So that's why I can't find Mayor McCheese, Hamburgerler, or Grimace anymore! Puff N' Stuff sued them. How about that. I hope the Puff N' Stuff guys got enough bread to buy some more of their "stuff". Do you remember when you could climb up inside a playground version of Mayor McCheese or The Big Mac Guy? There was also the Fry Guys bouncy things, a Grimace slide.
