McDonald’s Cursing Minion: WTF?!

Ok, I say curse some people say cuss or swear.  Whatever you call it, the Caveman Minion from McDonald’s isn’t doing it. This reminds me of this past Christmas and the Play-Doh “Penis” Extruder.  Parents will find anything to fuss about if they feel it will help give their kid a level playing field.  Lets not keep score and everyone is always a winner and when you get into the real world you will ace that first job interview because you have never failed or faced adveristy in anything.  Ok getting off topic, back to the Minion.

I have personally reached out to McDonald’s and they answered,  “Our goal at McDonald’s is to serve up food and fun for our valued customers, and we’re glad to have the Minions on board.
The Minion Caveman Happy Meal toy includes 3 sounds: ‘para la bukay,’ ‘hahaha,’ and ‘eh eh.’
We’re aware of a very small number of customers who have been in touch regarding this toy, and we regret any confusion or offense to those who may have misinterpreted its sounds. The allegation that this toy is saying anything offensive or profane is not true.

Once again, thank you for sharing your feedback. We hope you’ll enjoy our future Happy Meal promotions.”

So there you have it.  OF course this means lots to the collector market as everyone want something controversial.  Prices on eBay are already rising because of it.  Some McDonalds say they are not handing them out while many I visited sold me as many as I wanted for 75 cents each or claimed they were all out from customers buying “the cursing minion”.  Only one McDonalds in the Houston area flat out said they had them but were not giving them out.  I asked McDonalds in my initial email assuming they would answer all my questions at once.  They neglected to address it in their canned answer but I have a feeling it would read something like, “its at each franchisee’s discretion”

Check out the video and see for yourself.  Honestly it sounds like he is saying, “Set the clock!”

 

I guess it depends if you see black and blue or white and brown or whatever.
