There's a radio show in this McDonalds.

Last week my boss called me late Wednesday night to tell me I'd be on a radio show early Thursday morning. I'm kind of getting tired of this nonsense. I get roped into the silliest things! So I stayed up late waiting on talking points from our PR company, only to discover that this show is taped in McDonald's. As in, at a little sticky table.

It really is. I did my interview, speaking while the host (former politician, not coincidentally also a former convict, as New Orleans politicians are wont to be) chomped his Egg McMuffin.

After I completed the live segment, I tuned to the show in the car to hear how they managed to a produce a show in a fast food restaurant....and sure enough, it sounded exactly like you were in the McDonald's drive through. Only in New Orleans!

  1. no, really... you are kidding. right?

    Too funny, and having grown up in the South, totally believable! But I must say that:

    "Things happen to me that just don't happen to other shiny happy people."

    is more accurate than I previously thought!

  2. The only thing that would have made this better is if the former politician were dressed up as the Hamburglar. I think it would added a touch of irony to an already classic experience.

  3. OMG, that is hilarious. But I'm trying to figure out why a radio show would think McD's is the right place to do an interview with a pharmacist from a national drugstore company! Were they interviewing a varied bunch of folks?

    2. That. Is. Amazing. (I bet the McD's is a valued sponsor.)
