This is one of those examples where a news story goes by, and then Stephan and I spend the whole day texting each other punchlines because we can't decide what exactly is the funniest about this scenario.
Here are some of the highlights so far:
"What....did McDonald's do a focus group and decide 'f$%k the food, let's put new pants on the clown?"
"Oh, you know what will make people eat more greasy chicken slurry? Put the clown on Twitter!"
"Sales are down! Clearly the problem is the clown's jumpsuit. Get him some pants!"
By the way, here is the photo that McDonald's released to go along with the big news about Ronald McDonald's new pants and his social media.
I believe Stephan wins "funniest line of the day" for this one: "I'm curious as to why they decided to do the photo shoot in front of a brick wall. Probably it's supposed to invoke a comedy club, but really it looks like he's being held hostage."
