    Actually, when I think of all those old McDonalds characters:
    The Hamburgler (Criminal)
    Mayor McCheese (Authority Figure)
    The ???????????? (Police Officer)
    Grimace (THC induced incarnation of The Munchies)...

    I start to wonder if they inspired the creation of The Village People.

    Thanks HJ. I left 'em out because I couldn't remember what they were called.

    I also left out 'Birdy', who I believe was added when McDonalds started serving breakfast.

    Can we really consider anything at McD's brain food?

    Thanks! You too Root

    Unfortunately the head of research was unavailable, so I got the craptastic wiccapedia for us.

    Big Mac: In addition to McDonald's signature sandwich, Big Mac was the name of a character in McDonaldland. He was similar to Mayor McCheese in that he had a large Big Mac for a head, except he was the chief of police and as such he wore a constable uniform.

    Birdie the Early Bird was the first identifiably female character, introduced in 1980 to promote the company's new breakfast items. She is a yellow bird wearing a pink jumpsuit and flight cap and scarf.

    Captain Crook was a pirate and is similar in appearance to the famed Captain Hook from Peter Pan. Unlike the Hamburglar, this villain spent his time trying to steal Filet-O-Fish sandwiches from citizens of McDonaldland while avoiding being caught by Big Mac, the Chief of police of McDonaldland

    CosMc was a temporary character from McDonaldland. He was featured in a series of McDonald's commercials in 1990 when the McDonaldland gang went to the moon

    Fry Kids are characters used to promote McDonald's french fries. When they first appeared, they were called Gobblins and liked to steal and gobble up the other characters' french fries.

    Grimace is a large, purple being of indeterminate species with short arms and legs; he is known for his monotonous face and slow-witted demeanor.

    The Hamburger Patch is part of the fictional city of McDonaldland where McDonald's hamburgers "grew" like fruit on plants from the Hamburger Patch. Even though hamburgers in McDonaldland were anthropomorphized and spoke, they were picked by characters such as Ronald McDonald and the Hamburglar for consumption.

    The Hamburglar character was another thief that dressed in a black-and-white striped shirt and pants, a red cape, and a wide-brimmed hat and whose primary object of theft was McDonalds hamburger from the Hamburger Patch.

    The Happy Meal Gang (Cheeseburger, soft drink, and fries, all regular size) (later joined by the McNugget Buddies)

    Iam Hungry: was a short-lived McDonaldland character. He was introduced in 1998 and dropped in the early 2000s. The character was a floating green fuzzball with orange arms and a monstrous face.

    Mayor McCheese has an enormous cheeseburger for a head, and sports a top hat, a diplomat's sash, and a pair of pince-nez spectacles. He is portrayed as a giggly, bumbling, somewhat incompetent mayor with a wavering, high-pitched voice that is reminiscent to that of comic actor Ed Wynn.

    The Professor, a mad scientist type character in a lab coat. He was introduced in 1971.

    Ronald McDonald, the primary icon of McDonald's characters.

    Uncle O'Grimacey was created for an advertising narrative of the McDonald's fast-food restaurant chain both in celebration of St. Patrick's Day and to mark the annual appearance of the Shamrock Shake.

    The preceding announcement was copy/pasted from McDonaldland - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Just read on TIPB that AT&T is being a donkey and sending emails telling people they are using to much data and they must purchase a tethering plan. Ive used 7+ gigs before in a month and I wasn't using a tethering app! What the frack are they gonna do? It said they will automatically enroll you in a tethering plan. Ummm pretty sure they can't do that without your consent? How would they prove it? I work 8 hours a night and need my phone. They better not kick me off my unlimited data!!! *shake fist*
