Ronnie Ate Here

On Oct. 15, 1984, President Reagan stopped at a Northport, Alabama McDonald’s, where he ordered a Big Mac, large fries and sweet tea.
Now, Rick Hanna Sr., the new owner of the fast food restaurant, plans to commemorate this historic occasion by installing a bronze bust of the former president, inside a case with a halogen light shining on it 24 hours a day.

  1. promotional headline to display near bust: an extra value meal won’t cost you a lot of dead presidents

  2. We’re winning the Cold War! All burgers and fries guaranteed hot.
    (I doubt anybody’s gonna beat HighJive’s.)

  3. here’s another thought: if they’re gonna install a bust for the mickey d’s that reagan visited, somebody’s gonna have to start mass producing busts of clinton.

  4. Haha, laughed out loud highjive.
