Krofft Brothers Vs McDonalds lawsuit - Twas Sweet

Being in the mood for a Micky Dees burger has got me dreaming about eating a few AND about how that Freak Ronald McDonald got his ass sued by no other than Sid and Marty Krofft. Next to the Scopes Monkey Trial - this was it. For those of you unfamiliar with the parties involved:

Sid and Marty Krofft - Cheesy producers responsible for such shows as H.R. Pufnstuf (note terrible spelling), Lidsville, Land of the Lost and the Jim Nabors bomb - The Lost Saucer (blessing in disguise as Mr Nabors went on to make several great records).
Ronald McDonald - clown entrepreneur - fast food industry.

Bottom line: Ronald ripped off the brothers.
The judgement: 2500 square yards of the finest Arabian puppet making felt.
