MILAN -- McDonald's restaurants are suing a famous Italian food critic for about $20 million, after he allegedly made defamatory and offensive comments about their burgers and fries.

Later on, a countersuit was filed and lost. Ronald McDonald was last seen walking drunk down the street with a cigarette hanging from his clown lips and pushing a shopping cart. (rodentsRred@hotmail.com)

...And you think you can use my game to curry favor with Cad? Bwahahahahahahhahahhaha

The suit was originally for only $5 million, but the lawyers suggested they super-size it. (MrglsJon@aol.com, junkmailmagnet42@aol.com)

I wouldn't be too worried about a loss of business. After all, people who eat at McDonald's rarely consult expiration dates, let alone famous Italian food critics. (Cheez412@aol.com)

I'll have a Super-Size Sauteed McMushroom, and a side of McCaviar, please! (straightarrow15@hotmail.com)

He countered, "I thought that 'great for lubing your Fiat' was complimentary!" (skibip@aol.com)

In response, he spilled his hot coffee in his lap and called it even. (StanYan1@aol.com)

Just add some oregano - he'll be happy then. (kaylor@mail.com)

Well, it really depends on the context of the statement, "This tastes like McCrap." (mrxsandmanx@yahoo.com)

A food critic ate at a McDonald's? That's like Tiger Woods playing pasture golf in central Nebraska. (dinosaur1972@aol.com)

Today's winner, LeslieBore@hotmail.com, suggests the suit might quickly be settled by the experts in the Tiny Tot Nursery School Gourmet Cooking Class:

Of course, the critic is now threatening McDonald's, saying they better drop the suit or they'll find themselves "sleeping with the Filet o'Fishes." (LeslieBore@hotmail.com)
