Here’s one of the lunchboxes I picked up last week while out and about, the McDonalds Cactus Canyon Lunchbox. I can’t wait to cram a McBLT in this thing and take it to work for lunch. Many classic lunchboxes told a story, and this one is no exception. On the front of the lunchbox you can see Ronald McDonald as “the Sheriff,” relaxing on the front porch as an excited Birdie is approaching him. I think every day Birdie is not turned into a 20 piece box of McNuggets, Birdie should be excited.
Around the edges of the lunchbox you can follow the story. On one side of the lunchbox Birdie leads Ronald and the gang to an empty safe. The other size shows the Hamburgler making his escape, and the top shows a Hamburgler wanted poster. On the back of the lunchbox we can see how the story of the McDonalds Cactus Canyon Lunchbox ends.
How this story end
As the Fry Guys stand guard and Mayor McCheese assumes his “stick-up” pose, it’s Grimace we see here saving the day using his lasso. Noticeably missing in this wild west setting are any guns. My favorite part of the back is Ronald himself, who instead of helping apprehend the Hamburgler, simply gestures towards the crook’s getaway stagecoach as if to say, “See what kind of McCrap I have to put up with in Cactus Canton?”
Thanks to Insane Pencil over at deviantART for snapping this photo of the former Mayor of McDonaldland as he begins his whirlwind tour of the world. Give his Honor a helping hand and make sure to visit and sign the petition as well as all the Facebook and Twitter options over at Bring Back the Mayor.com, because the return of the Mayor is going to need a heap of helping hands from good people like yourselves.
McCheese is the elective Lawmaker and regulator of McDonaldLand. He is from a species of amphibious hamburger plant, and is capable of hibernating in a swamp sustained on photosythesis for two years. To do this he grows a leafy vine from the base of his neck which can be removed without discomfort. He can attract flies with a scent to get stuck on his sticky, yellow, lip-tongue. His mouth extends 345 degrees around his head as does his lip-tongue. He has no more reservations to eating from an ordinary hamburger patch than a human would with eating a non-sentient with thumbs (monkeys and jaberwokies).
Can you hear that soft mumuring growing steadily louder, friends? That is a hungry nation ready for Mayor McCheese to once again be allowed to don his sash and top hat! Brave artists like droo31 over at deviantART who clearly agrees with the Retroist’s earlier impassioned plea as we can clearly see from the wonderful artwork below.
So what are you waiting for? Head over to link above to see more of droo31’s awesome art and then make sure to visit the link to join the movement, friends!
We live in trying times. Around the world, economies are going crazy and the average person is sometimes struggling to just make ends meet. It is during times like this that we could all use the reassurance of a friendly and familiar face. Not just any face mind you, but the face of a timeless leader who saw us through some rough times in the 1970s and 1980s. A leader who is the unanimously elected leader of a magical place where hunger and thirst are words with no meaning. A leader named Mayor McCheese!
