Better find another way to make a sandwich

    Because McDonald's wants to patent the method of "making a sandwich."

    The good news is that in light of a recent appeals court decision supporting a Patent Office decision not to allow patents for methods of doing business, this patent and many other patents like it could be tossed.

    If McDonald's is successful with that, I'm going straight to the cops and filing a claim that Ronald touched me inappropriately when I was a kid.

    If I'm not mistaken, McDonald's already has a patent on how to apply ketchup and mustard to their burgers.

    I specifically remember my buddy in high school working for Burger King and being told ketchup and mustard had to be applied in counter-clockwise circles because McDonald's did it clockwise.

    Now, some douche manager may have been pulling his chain (and mine in turn) but I think it was even in the employee handbook/training manual.

    How is McDonald's gonna know? They have patent spies?

    Haha. I have no idea. I'm just relaying the story I was told.

    I must say that counter-clockwise mustard just doesn't taste the same as clockwise mustard.

    I should know. I'm a man who loves his mustard.

    I worked at the golden arches, and I don't ever remember them saying anything about that ...
