Go to McDonald's! Get a Hummer toy!

If you go to McD and buy a Happy Meal, you can get a little plastic Hummer toy.

Me, I'm going to impale the toy upside-down on a stick and fly it like a Native American warrior's scalp trophy from my rear rack.

Then I'd have to actually eat at McDonald's. Way too much sacrifice for me.

Or I could throw the food away or give it to a homeless person. Nah. Too much work.

Go for the grand slam of irrelevant A&S political correctness; don't forget to wail about the evil WallMart devils.

Oh, the horror! You'll never be a Real A&S brand cycling advocate admitting to such decadent behavior/preferences.

I bet you stuck firecrackers between Ken's and Barbie's legs as a kid.

Part Cherokee here as well. Maybe I'll take offense after I drink some more coffee. I was just thinking earlier today that I need some new thing to be upset and politically correct about.

Toy Hummers, though? This almost belongs in Foo... the relation between toy hummers, children and McDonald's-eating cagers mowing down bikers by the dozen is dubious in my opinion. The argument could be made that we are brainwashing the kiddies from an early age into an oil-dependant, self-centered mentality, but this could easily be countered by the argument that by the time these kids are old enough to drive a car, Hummers will no longer exist, SUVs will be very rare due to insane gas prices, Ford and GM will be long gone, and most cars in America will be small or efficient as in Europe. Both arguments seem like a stretch.

You ain't never heard of the Cleveland Indians?

How about the Fukawis?

actually, my great grandma was Dine (Navajo))

Imagine that, a WOP, Bullhunk, Injun who rides a bike, wears high heels, suspenders and a bra.

OK, on a lark, I went to the McDonalds at El Camino and El Monte in Mountain View. Sure enough, they had the Hummer toys. I was tempted, but didn't.

Outside the McD's was one rad looking Trek 7X00 something bike, and a blue Magna MTB with photo stickers plastered on the frame (the kind you print at photo booths). It was a beautiful morning for biking. Saw three others on my very short commute. So there, take that, evil Hummer overlords.

Last time I heard of the Indians, Willie Mays was cathing Vic Wetrz's long drive 450+ deep in the Cleveland centerfield cow pasture. Anything happen since?

Who needs the McDonalds toy? Bet the Freeride fellows are already using the real thing as jump ramps.
