Another big news day in Milton Keynes

That's my step-ladder. I never knew my real ladder.

Imagine being ok with malls or shopping centres, but having an issue with McDonald's.

Is it bad because poor people go there?

If you read the article, you might notice it's a silly joke, used as an excuse for (good) terible puns by everyone involved.

Not very oniony.

I am very sorry for the journalist, though, imagine having to report on a thing like this.

I live in Milton Keynes. Believe me, this is as good as the journalism gets.


michal_hanu_la t1_j7anp7y wrote

It seems to be a place of contradictions --- named both Milton and Keynes, a place where Marshall 1962 comes from, but also Milton Keynes.


> Crowley took Glasgow, Aziraphale had Edinburgh (neither claimed any responsibility for Milton Keynes).

I spent a few days there once. It was quite nice, but you're right, not much to say after talking about the concrete cows.

Poor people go to McDonalds? Where the hell do you live? Its expensive as all hell, especially for the quality.

Part of the same shopping area has had a mcds since 1980. Its hardly revolutionary


RespectableDave t1_j7b4ek2 wrote

That part of the shopping centre is over 10 years old and still referred to as "the new bit"


Djinjja-Ninja t1_j7b84op wrote

Well I suppose Milton Keynes is still called a new town despite having been around since the late 60s.


Zolo49 t1_j7du49m wrote

As old as England is, that’s acceptable in relative terms.


ItDoesntMatter59 t1_j7dn4j5 wrote

Well the original was opened in 1980 (by margaret thatcher) so its kinda new in comparison

I still refer to Star Trek (2009) as one of the “new Star Trek movies” and that was almost 13 years ago now. The sequel was ten.

>Step ladder mistaken for new McDonald’s

What are you doing?


Uncleniles t1_j7aw7ix wrote

This should tell you how deeply ingrained company logos are in our brains.


x86_64_ t1_j7bpaob wrote

No sane, sighted person would honestly mistake a ladder for a McDonald's logo.

I guess those billions spent on advertizing is well spent. People used to see Jesus and angels and now they see their favorite capitalist death machine.

People need to stop judging things based on narrow-minded cultural assumptions EDIT: guys it's a nerdy video game reference involving step ladders I'm not trying to be deep lol

You are like really smart aren't you! Tell us more oh wise sage.


Twenty-Uno t1_j7hduxq wrote

It's a video game reference about step ladders, I figured it would be obscure but didn't expect angry replies lol, my bad


Chard069 t1_j7ah0s4 wrote

I doubt that I' mistake a ladder for a McD's outlet. A garbage bin, maybe, by the smell. A madhouse, maybe, by the clown. But a ladder? Nope.


NotsoGreatsword t1_j7e3q74 wrote

This is the douchiest thing I have read in a long time and there have been some real doozies today.


Chard069 t1_j7irxcn wrote

Have you walked into a McD's and inhaled lately? If so, and you didn't puke, then your guts are stronger than mine. Enjoy.
