Oh, damn. I thought; here's a lawyer and he's going to say something interesting. But it was just another freaked out, fuzzy-minded fool who thinks McDonalds needs to be defended. Why do you bother? They don't need your arguments, just the money you spend on burgers.

I'm really surprised that I feel I need to point out to a lawyer that it was McDonalds who sued the defendants for daring to criticise them, not vice versa. ie: it's McDonalds who are anti free speech. What on earth do they do with all the money they spend to educate you?
