Dammit, Drew. Stop reminding me of Stephen King's It just before I go to bed.
That made me lol really loudly. Your assumption is justifiable, as one of the original Ronald was an alleged child molester.
I had a recurring dream as a kid that Grimace wanted to eat me. McDonald's characters must be the stuff of nightmares.
Rustie: Well, I did post at 3:37 p.m. I forget sometimes that my entire readership isn't constantly clicking refresh, reading each post the moment it appears on my blog.Jenn: Wait, wasn't Willard Scott the original Ronald McDonald? Certainly such allegations would have been proved true or false by now, right?Nathan: Grimace is indeed nightmare-worthy, if perhaps for no reason other than that he's the only resident of McDonaldland that I know of that it is not clearly associated with some McDonald's food product. It's a subject I've written about before on this blog.
I don't think it was dear old nutty Willard, but someone told me that one of the original ones was a child molester, but they kept it quiet. My source isn't that reliable, and I can't find anything to back it up. When asked for further confirmation, the person I asked said "I did say that it may not be true." So there's that. But I'm pretty sure ONE of the Ronalds had to have been one. I mean, a fast food wielding clown? That's more appealing than candy and a puppy.
