Hey, did you catch South San Francisco Day in Orange Memorial Park over the weekend? Well, then here’s a little Rorschach test for you.
What do you see in the following sequence of photos? What do you think the kids thought? What does the performer playing Ronald think about this now? How about sponsor Genentech? And how about the pie? Was it egg-free vegan custard? Natch!
Anyway, get up to speed here and then take a peek at the following:
The color match between the bird and Ronald is impressive.
Let’s leave the last word with PETA:
“A man dressed as a giant chicken and identifying himself as a PETA member took Ronald McDonald by surprise and pied him in the face with vegan custard this afternoon during Ronald’s appearance onstage at the South San Francisco Day in Orange Memorial Park. The protest is part of PETA’s campaign to convince McDonald’s to switch to an improved slaughter method that would eliminate the worst abuses of chickens, including having their legs slammed into shackles, often breaking them, and being scalded to death.

“”McDonald’s can stop a great deal of cruelty simply by requiring its suppliers to render chickens unconscious before they are roughly handled and slaughtered,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “McDonald’s is responsible for forcing millions of chickens to experience an agonizingly painful death.”
