Ronald McDonald arrested in China for violation of the law

The appeal of Ronald McDonald is difficult to understand. He is instantly recognizable, sure, and seems to be some sort of clown, which are apparently paragons of fun and friendliness. But he also is undeniably creepy as all heck.

Dressed as if he was complicit in some sort of hotdog bombing, Ronald McDonald peddles his burgers the world over. With massive momentum, he takes up an enormous portion of the worldwide fast-food market.

What this doesn’t mean, however, is that Ole Ronny is above the law, as we recently saw outside one of his restaurants in Guangzhou, China. For the crimes of being both a tripping hazard, as well as being located outside of the store itself, Ronald was given his marching orders.

When he failed to comply with the demands of local law enforcement, the police escalated the situation, coming at him with such force that his ankles were snapped off and only his feet were left as a memorial on the sidewalk.

After being questioned by locals, the official responsible for ordering this act tried to be reasonable, saying that if the restaurant owners admitted to their wrongdoing then the top 90% of Ronald would be returned.

Whatever the eventual outcome, one thing is sure – this Ronald will never walk again.
