    Mr. McWhiskey Barrel would tell Ronald, “Cram it, clown!”

    That barrel with a hole reminds me of a classic dirty joke, the punchline to which is, “Because Thursday is your day in the barrel.”

    Besides the titular character and the short-lived early 1990s Kids Club (Kid Vid, Boomer, I.Q., Jaws, Lingo, Snaps, Wheels, and dog J.D.), I wonder who would Rat add to Burger King?

    Come to think of it, out side of Ronald and the Hamburglar I don’t think I’ve seen much of any of the other characters since the early ‘90s. And then it was only really Grimace, Birdie, and the Fry Guys. Mayor McCheese I don’t really remember seeing anything with outside of images of him at McDonald’s resturants. And there was a sheriff that I kinda remember from the old playgrounds.

    The policeman was Big Mac. There was also Captain Crook, long gone.

    They’ll have to come up with a Mountie and a moose character since they are moving to Canada to avoid taxes.

    They had to stop using the mayor, the sheriff and certain other elements after a lawsuit by Sid and Marty Kroft.

    Aside from Ronald, they abandoned the McDonaldland gang a couple decades ago. And it disappoints me, because they were so much better than that ugly kid and his goat, or the nightmare-inducing happy meal box.

    That would be Dudley Do-Right and Bullwinkle, I suppose?
    Meanwhile, Mickey Dee should not be too hasty in dismissing Mr. McWhiskey Barrel. With their slumping sales, maybe the introduction of an Adults Only adult beverage section would be helpful….

    Did Rat drink his way into or out of the barrel ?

    They have to pass on Mr. McWhiskey Barrel. Because if they don’t they might pass out on McWhiskey.

    McD tried an adult only sandwich and it flopped.

    I’ll have a McWhiskey Sloshy Meal, please.

    You’re right..they’ve done away with every character, and now I think the Ronald is gone, too. They’re trying to not be accused of advertising to children.
