hehehmn McDonald's Corp. Mad at New Dictionary Word..

HAHAH...I had to laugh at this article:

McDonald's Mad at New Dictionary Word

One of the newest words in the Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary is "McJob," which means "low paying and dead-end work." That has McDonald's steaming. Reuters reports that McDonald's CEO Jim Cantalupo wrote an open letter to Merriam-Webster, insisting the term is "an inaccurate description of restaurant employment" and "a slap in the face to the 12 million men and women" who work in the restaurant industry. He further noted that "more than 1,000 of the men and women who own and operate McDonald's restaurants today got their start by serving customers behind the counter."

That's not the only beef McDonald's has with the esteemed dictionary. The word "McJob" closely resembles McJOBS, which is McDonald's training program for mentally and physically challenged people. It's trademarked, and McDonald's considers it a legal violation to use the word any other way.

The term McJob first appeared in the 1991 novel "Generation X" by Douglas Coupland to describe a "low-prestige, low-dignity, low-benefit, no-future job in the service sector." Merriam-Webster has not yet commented on the McFiasco.


heheh...still can't get over this one..glad I never worked at McDicks...

Anyways thoughts?

Haha... that is so hilarious...

I wonder what the McDonald's mascot has to say about that, and I wonder what he looks like when he is pissed?

McDonald's doesn't get to decide the vernacular of the people. They don't even have proper grammer in their own fucking "i'm lovin' it" campaign, and they want to bitch. Maybe instead of crying about their shitty image, they should do something to change it.

Once something has been in the public domain for so long the copyright goes away.

kinda...its still a registered trademark, however noone has to pay to use it.
