Grimace, indeed

Keenan’s class will soon be going on a three-day field trip to Space Camp in Montreal. (I didn’t know the Canadians had a space program; then it occurred to me that this probably was the Canadian space program.) When told were told the trip would include a stop at the mega-McDonalds just on the US side of the border, the class responded with a spontaneous chorus of boos.

When I was ten, a stop at McDonald’s would have been a highlight of any class trip. For many of my classmates, it would have been the sole highlight.

Simply put, the fifth graders of America don’t know Mayor McCheese, and they don’t care.
