    That’s why McDonald’s put a warning on their coffee and apple-pie wrappers “Contents maybe hot!”

    Yes, but they don’t need to heat them to “Hell’s sixth circle” temperatures.

    Client had no idea the coffee would be served at near-boiling in order for the restaurant to save money by using less coffee per serving, resulting, when it spilled in her lap, in extensive medical bills including for skin grafts and a series of bogus “news” reports from anti-consumer media shills.

    Not to mention the cheapest possible cup collapsing when the lid is taken off to put the sugar in. And no, she wasn’t the driver, and they hadn’t started moving yet.

    Coffee is heated at the counter with heating pads plugged into over head light sockets. Socket to me, here come duh judge.

    We could use more DUH judges and fewer moronic ones.

    It’s all lukewarm when I go to McDonald’s.

    There’s a difference between using fresh boiled water for coffee or tea and nuking it in the microwave to make hot. – .
    The fresh boiled water has an even temp throughout the cup (well, except for the top of course). Easier to cool. And if you let it sit for a moment, better flavour.

    Sammy Davis, Jr. actually bought Markham’s act from him. Others used his intellectual property without permission.

    Right. This myth is just wrong – the victim was truly victimized and injured and McDonald’s FINALLY lowered the temperature on their coffee after a court order.
