I don’t really enjoy eating fast food, but I know someone who does, so every once in a while, I treat that little someone to a Happy Meal (TM) from McDonald’s (probably also (TM), but maybe (R) or (C)).
So last night, I ordered a kids meal for my little someone and, joy of joys, McDonald’s currently has Adventure Time toys (none of the lady characters FOR SOME REASON, but that’s a whole other story), so I said to the manager working the register: “We’d like an Adventure Time toy with that Happy Meal, please.”
Two seconds later, she looked up at me and asked: “Would you like a boy toy or a girl toy?”
“Well, since girls like Adventure Time, I assume the Adventure Time toy I requested is a GIRL TOY.”
“Uhhhh,” said the manager.
“ANYWAY, I would like the ADVENTURE TIME toy, which can be played with by GIRLS AND BOYS alike.”
Later, the receipt said I’d chosen a “truck toy,” so I guess trucks like Adventure Time too.
