We've got shakes, we've got lies

Remember when you could create subversive campaign posters with the Bush campaign's very own tool? Wasn't culture jamming fun? Well now you can stick it to McDonald's and use their banner design tool to make up your own advertising message! (via NewYorkish)

Just in case it isn't clear, you need to walk through the whole process and add your banner to your shopping cart to get a URL you can copy-and-paste.

Don't F with McDonald's. Trust me — they have lawyers and they're hungry for some legal action.

Damn, and I had some good ones.

"Serving Fried Chicken Heads Since 1958"

"Do you want heart disease with that?"

"Fattening up America, one greasy Big Mac at a time!"

"Our burgers are made with 100% meat, just don't ask what kind of meat."

"Don't F with McDonald's".........Maybe McD's could do somthing about all their litter that blows around in the community. What about the stinky GREASE smell in the dead of summer heat that makes you whant to hurl. When they do somthing about that, maybe people will stop "jamming" them, and their McLayers can stop with the McLawsuits. Don't even get me going about the food!

Speaking of that smell, here in a somewhat upscale community they turned an old movie theater into condos. Funny part is the only windows and rear deck of every single unit overlooks a McDonalds parking lot. The units are, at most, 200 feet from the restaurant.

I don't know about you, but I wouldn't want to live there just because of the stench. That, and the grease coating one would be constantly removing from ones windows and patio furniture.

i think as long as you tell the truth, it's ok, though some might be questionably libelous, like say ...

i gotta go save some of these out before they close it down ...

Well, they're a business that sells signage to McDonald's franchises. What exactly were you expecting?

McDonalds are now very wary of the diminishing returns to scale in trying to use the law to curb legitimate criticism of them and their product.

Fear not, if you speak the truth.
