GEORGIA - McDonald's executives have been scurrying all around the United States to reconstruct their restaurants to fit a buffet style system. Even their website have changed to reflect the new look of their policies advertising 'as many burgers as your heart desires, as long its not ours.'

Since 1955, the fast food company has never altered their business model which thrived by super sizing meals one burger at a time.

However, last week, a man who went to one of the McDonald's restaurant in Georgia said the cashier behind the register tried to sell him an edible Shrek on top of the super sized soft drink, super sized hamburger, and super sized apple pie.

When the cashier calculated the final tally, the man owed $24 excluding fries. The man, whose name will remain anonymous to maintain the integrity of this story, told us that he felt like 'he ate a day's worth of food plus the Shrek and donkey.'

We asked him how would he have liked to be treated and he told us, "If McDonald's offered half a burger with half an apple pie and half a soft drink I would not be pursuing this lawsuit." Apparently, fries can never be the perfect size.

He added, "I hope to guilt McDonald's into reconsidering their portion control especially since they're everywhere people live."

McDonald's hope that their modified business model centered around portion control will discourage the unidentified man from pressing charges through an entire court case.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
