A group calling itself the Food Liberation Army has claimed responsibility for "kidnapping" a statue of the McDonald's food chain mascot Ronald McDonald and has threatened to "execute" the figure if their demands are not met. The group posted a video on YouTube where balaclava-clad "terrorists", holding the clown statue with a bag over its head, demanded that the world's largest food chain answer questions about its corporate responsibility and food production. "We love burgers, fries and McDonald's, but we can no longer watch in silence as the food we love is being destroyed and brought to shame because of greed and indifference," one of the "terrorists" said, speaking in Finnish. The man said the statue, which was taken from a Helsinki restaurant on January 31 by two men posing as maintenance personnel, would be executed on Friday, February 11. "Have a nice day," he signed off.

Hahaha I found this pretty funny. Personally I hope they broadcast the execution! I also hope this will brighten up someone else's day as it has mine.

So what exactly are their demands?

I don't see any actual demands in there.
I am angry that they are gonna make us wait a week. They better follow through with their threat once their demands are not met. Otherwise nobody will take them seriously when they go after Colonel Sanders. I WILL be searching on Feb 11th. Thats a promise

Bah, stealing the Ronald Statue was an annual occurrence(they eventually took cemented the lugs over so they couldn’t be loosened) during senior week when I was in High School - we never threatened to hurt him though he was always placed somewhere in town with comedic value like on the court house lawn etc...

These thugs have gone too far...

Well I am not paying the Mcransom, they can keep the bloody clown


Anyway kidnapping such an American icon, where is Seabag when you need him, we need his expert analysis so we can get round to nuking the Iranians, because we all know they secretly fund all the terrorist activity in the world

I think I read somewhere in local media that Ronald was returned in one piece. I cant remember where or any details thought. Could remember wrong.
