I KNEW I had a memory of Ronald beatboxing in a hightop fade.

For some reason this just emphasized to me how much Ronald McDonald's makeup really is just palette swapped blackface. Way more than the average American clown, even. Hell, more than Mickey Mouse.

Whenever they switched Ronald actors, it was a bit like learning there was no Santa Claus, over and over again, until I decided I hated McDonald's and I liked grownup food. Around 10 or 11 years old.

I think I rebelled until I was like 15 or so. McDonalds was pretty much off the menu for my parents, just like cable TV, so of course I ate as much McDonalds and watched as much cable as I could.

I try to tell my younger siblings that there was a time before McNuggets and a time before Crunchberries, and they don't believe me.

I don't think I remember such a time myself, although I do recall the days before the Oops All Crunchberries disaster of 1997. Things were simpler then..

Interestingly, Peanut Butter Crunch has been around since 1969! Captain Crunch's wiki page is pretty great. Here's another highlight:

On May 21, 2009, Judge Morrison England, Jr., of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California dismissed the case Sugawara v. PepsiCo, Inc..[26] The plaintiff, Janine Sugawara, claimed she had purchased the cereal Cap'n Crunch with Crunchberries because she believed "crunchberries" indicated she was eating real fruit. Sugawara alleged that after four years of purchasing the product she had only recently discovered to her dismay that said "berries" were in fact simply brightly colored cereal balls. The judge commented "In this case...it is simply impossible for Plaintiff to file an amended complaint stating a claim based upon these facts. The survival of the instant claim would require this Court to ignore all concepts of personal responsibility and common sense. The Court has no intention of allowing that to happen."[27]

Oops! All Berries was truly a disaster, no doubt. Crunchberries taste like ass, easily the worst breakfast cereal product I have ever tried, and I still remember how... *violated* I felt, when I saw those O!AB commercials on television. I still have an irrational fear that one day, somebody will force me to eat a bowl filled with nothing but Crunchberries.

I don't believe there was time before McNuggets, however. McNuggets were all I ever got at McDonald's, McNuggets with Honey (which has apparently been discontinued).

Old_Zircon
Honey for BK nuggets sure, but for McDonalds it's hot mustard always.

joelkazoo
Agreed, Hot Mustard is the best.

I literally had one of the worst nightmares in my entire life last night, and it involved a haunted house and shadow-clown people that skulked in the shadown. There were other things that happened in this dream that I'm not even going to repeat and I woke up screaming at the top of my lungs at 3 AM in the morning because clowns were going to kill me.

And yet this was about as surreal and disturbing.

"that skulked in the shadows"

Old_Zircon
These clowns, would it be far to characterize them as "wicked"?
