An amazing seduction OR the ubiquitous happy meal

      Ah, McDonald's.  The butt of many an American joke and some would say, the large butt of America.  I get to travel with some of my kids out into the community.  Every community has a McDonald's, as it turns out (except, notably our neighboring state capitol of Montpelier).  McDonald's is a great place to take kids; they tend to be rather clean, have ample bathrooms, you can loiter, you can make someone extremely happy for 99 cents.  But those toys.  Like a woodpecker to a rotting tree, my kid made a beeline to the toy case.  What the hell is with those toys!?  More after the jump.
