There should be more respect for public servants

Ready to feel old?  I found this in antique store yesterday:
Before Fry-Guys went extinct.
It was surrounded by a bunch of Victorian stuff, which I think was done intentionally to make me feel worse.  Then the shopkeeper saw me take a picture and told me that I should check out the antiques they had outside behind the shop.

Gone but not forgotten.

Then Victor and I were both like “MAYOR McCHEESE!” and it was kind of like when you find an old friend but he’s laying in a coffin and then someone tells you you look fat and then they stab you in the leg.  It was exactly like that.  Antique stores are assholes.

And now, my weekly wrap-up of shit-I-did-when-I-wasn’t-here, although it’s kind of crazy long since I didn’t do it last week because I’m too old to remember these things, apparently.  Sorry. I’m a little bitter.

    1. Oh man… I do feel old. Probably not as old as you feel since I’m younger than you, but I still feel pretty old. Then again, most things make me feel old these days. Like Dexter’s Lab being on Boomerang right after Johnny Quest. Even though I totally watched Johnny Quest as a kid too.

Amazing how the name Mayor McCheese is so ingrained in all our memories. Are those for sale and if so, do you know how much they’re selling for?

      @46 Judy Schwartz Haley : I never understood what grimace was, but I do remember that when he first came out he had four arms to better steal shakes. Looking back at the original characters, it seems the food-based characters where the upright citizens of McDonaldland (Mayor McCheese, Officer Big Mac) and everyone else were criminals trying to steal food (Evil Grimace, Hamburglar, Captain Crook, Goblins).

    93. For the first time ever Jenny I am a little dissapointed in you. How could you not buy those pieces and install them on your awesome property? Tell the snobbish they are art pieces, tell the kids if they aren’t good they go to hamburger jail. I would have booked my tickets for Texas tonight if you had bought these man.

      But I still love you for the fuck yeah diaoramas post. Fuckin a dude.

      I bet Victor was really pleased to get to pay for the MackyD’s toys AND carry them to the car. One question…how many looks did you get on the way home with Mayor McCheese strapped to the hood?

    95. I actually ahh-ed out loud at those pictures. Man, I used to wonder exactly what it would be like to be a Hamburglar, breaking into McDonalds super late at night with my minion of Fry Guys. Thanks for making me smile!

    97. Hello, new to your blog. It came highly recommended from a friend, and I’ve found myself instantly delighted by your blog! Man, the things I would buy if I was insanely rich. If I was rolling in money and walked into that antique shop with those McDonald’s playground things, I would buy them in a heartbeat and set them up in my backyard. Looking at them instantly takes me back to when I was a little kid, excited to go eat at McDonald’s (because you know it was actually considered not evil and delicious back then) and ride the hamburger merry-go-round. Definitely gonna be sticking around to read more.

    99. Jen, I’m digging your ‘metal’ booblies! I think you look like a sexy new gf character for The Thing in a Fantastic 4 sequel.

    100. WHAT?! Those can’t be in an ANTIQUE store!! This is a world gone mad, I tell you. I loved those playground items.

      And I hate to be the asshole who corrects anyone on their old school McDonalds characters, but that isn’t Mayor McCheese, its Sheriff Big Mac. Hence the kiddie-jail. Which I loved. Also, my parent’s loved and would encourage me to go in often. True Story.

    101. Getting stuck (temporarily) in a Mayor McCheese just like that was my wake-up call that 7th grade was too old for the McDonald’s play place.

    105. Holy shit! There used to be one of the hamburgers in my neighborhood at an apartment complex, and I always wondered what it was. I thought it was some type of abandoned McDonald’s toy from years past.

    106. Shit….when I win the lotto, because clearly someday it *will* happen even though I never buy lotto tickets, I will buy that shit. But I won’t let little kids into them because they wouldn’t appreciate them, and they like to puke in Mayor McCheese and a man with such power as mayor does not deserve to be puked on.
