Riverside, California - (Rotters): It's a classically astute business deal and legendarily typical of the entrepreneurial acumen of the McDonalds Corporation.
Following a swoop by Riverside law enforcement officials on an illegal cockfighting cabal, over 200 roosters were humanely gassed by the District Coroner before their carcasses were snapped up by the world famous fast food giant.
And now lucky law abiding Riverside residents are about to be treated to a huge, free and gratis McNuggetfest tonight as a benevolent exercise in compassionate marketing.
California Health Department officials have said that the euthanasia agent used to dispatch the cockerels was an industry standard and McDonalds patrons should have nothing to worry about.
And in a environmentally friendly gesture the company has kindly donated the birds' plumage to hapless California death row prisoners as an ecologically sound alternative to the foam rubber stuffing inside their pillows 'so they can sleep soundly at night, safe in the knowledge they are doing their bit for the environment.'
