Yep, no more forks folks. The move will save money and potentially hundreds of patrons who might be tempted to self-harm under the golden arches.
Well, that’s what it might sound like to many non-native English-speaking patrons.
We don’t give a fork is actually a play-on-words (jeu de mots) for a rude and crude expression ‘ I don’t give a fuck’, used by angry adolescents, rap artists and nasty people who comment on websites. It’s a rude way to say, I don’t care, or in this case, We don't care. -
WTF! (What the Fork!) I hear you say.
Fuck and its fork and fcuk sound-alikes have become the go-to-words for cheap sensational marketing. People now wear the word , which was once dangerous and taboo. The McDonalds slogan sticks a pitchfork deep in the F-word’s last remnants of disrespectability.
McDonalds has obviously decided that reverse psychology or perhaps honesty is the best way forward on the road to corporate responsibility.
There are many reasons why McDonalds should give a fork. The chain has more than 30,000 restaurants around the world. In the UK alone, McDonalds sells 3.8 million meals a day.
But the main reason why McDonalds and we, the public, should care is that the restaurant chain is the world’s largest distributor of toys. McDonalds, as most parents know, is marketed directly to children. It is present in schools, sports and hospitals around the world. It is prominent in the lives of most young people.
Surely McDonalds meant to say: Yes, we do give a fork. Yes, we do care.
