you can all add THIS, to the list, of MC Donald's, being a crappy fast food restaurant, too: In 1985, When I Lived In Washington State, I Went Into A MC Donald's Fast Foot Restaurant, Near Federal Way?? Washington, Or Whatever, And I Slipped And Fell, On THEIR Wet Floor, With NO WET FLOOR SIGN! Their Excuse?? Some Kids, Took Off, With Their WET FLOOR SIGN! really irresponsible, even in 1985, or whatever. The Lawyer That I Saw, In Seattle, Washington, Was Lame! The Lawyer In Seattle, Washington, Was Lame, Because The Lawyer In Seattle, Washington, Did Not Really DO Anything, To HELP My Case! I Would Like A Way Back Machine, To UN Fall, From That MC Donald's WET FLOOR, Now! That Would Be Nice, To UN Fall, From That Washington State MC Donald's WET FLOOR, With A Way Back Machine, In 1985, Or Whatever.
