Ronald McDonald Has A Different Name In Japan

  Ronald McDonald Has A Different Name In Japan He's started a new life in the Land Of The Rising Sun.Turns out, it's true. It's not like he's assuming a new identity, forced into the Big Mac Protection Program after too many run-ins with the Hamburglar. In Japan, he's very much the same McDonald you see in the States: Same red hair, same ketchup-and-mustard-colored garb, even down to the same last name. The only change is that in Japan, he's Donald McDonald, or rather, Donarudo Makudonarudo. Similarly, the chain's charity, the Ronald McDonald House, is known as the Donald McDonald House there.

In the same way Elaine was outraged at Mr. Lippman for stealing her “muffin top” idea to turn a profit, so too is a former “Seinfeld” writer who believes McDonald’s is cashing in on his idea.

Spike Feresten — the man who wrote the “Seinfeld” episode in which Elaine and her former boss go into business selling muffin tops — has told TMZ he wants the company to cough up “a billion dollars” after they announced plans to begin serving “muffin toppers” as part of their new McCafé offerings.

Failing a billion-dollar payout, Feresten also said he’d gladly allow McDonald’s to sponsor his podcast instead.

How to Get Free McDonald's French Fries This Month

  How to Get Free McDonald's French Fries This Month <p>Getting your free fries is simple.</p>While the debate over which fast food chain has the best French fries will probably never be resolved, my personal feeling—and I think most people would agree with me—is that McDonald’s ranks in at least the top three. A McDonald’s burger just doesn’t taste complete without those thin, crunchy, salt-drenched sticks. That’s why the news that you can get free McDonald’s fries every Friday for the rest of the month should be especially exciting.

MCDONALD'S TO START OFFERING MUFFIN TOPS, LIKE THAT ONE EPISODE OF 'SEINFELD'

“What took so long?” Feresten jokingly asks of McDonald’s in a video obtained TMZ. “This episode was written 21 years ago.”

The writer and podcast host went on to say that the first thing he thought about, after seeing McDonald’s had announced its new “muffin toppers,” was “the money.”

“What I thought about was the money. The money I’m going to make from this multinational corporation. That’s what I thought about.”

He then outlined his demands, including his desire for McDonald’s to use the same slogan Elaine’s old boss, Mr. Lippman, had used for his muffin-top shop: “Top of the muffin TO YOU!” complete with an exclamation point.

“That’s the most important part,” Feresten said.

“Secondly, you’re going to have to pay me a billion dollars,” he continued. “But I’m going to use that money very wisely; I’m going to buy a bigger car collection than Jerry Seinfeld and make him feel bad.”

“And I think, if [those] aren’t possible, well they can just step in and sponsor ‘Spike’s Car Radio,’ my new cars-and-coffee podcast on Podcast One,” he reasoned. “I’ll help you sell the [muffin top] things.”

McDonald’s announced earlier this week that its new “muffin toppers” — which were tested in the Baltimore area last year — would be coming to restaurants across the U.S. along with other baked goods, as part of their efforts to push more breakfast offerings.

“Customers can also expect to see an elevated McCafé experience in our modernized U.S. restaurants — delicious menu items like muffin toppers, coffee cakes, apple pies with lattice crusts that are baked in-restaurant and cookies are part of our Experience of the Future deployment,” a representative for McDonald’s told Fox News on Wednesday.
