Condom Found in McDonald's Happy Meal

They're still investigating this, but it wouldn't surprise me if it were true.

WELLINGTON, New Zealand — A grandmother was alarmed to find a condom in a happy meal gift pack bought for her 7-year-old granddaughter at a McDonald's (MCD) restaurant in New Zealand, local media reported Thursday.

Grandpa Rowan Hutch told The Dominion Post newspaper it was lucky his wife was first to look inside the small sports bag that came with the meal.

She was aghast when she found the green condom and its packet inside the bag, he said.
"I was pretty horrified really. The fact my granddaughter was going to look in the bag and find this thing. It would be difficult to explain, she's only seven," said Hutch.

It wouldn't be too hard to explain; just tell her it's a "happy" balloon. I guess child's idea of a "happy pack", and someone else's idea of a "happy pack" are two different things.

my question is, was it a used condom and the discarded packet?

Or was it a really really happy meal?

If it's a green condom, Granny ought to be happy it wasn't on the burger, filling in for the pickle!

I'm not surpriced ... even if it was used or new, I'm not surpriced. This is how our world is today and I assume this is how we want it ... or it would not have been like this.
Everything is about sex, war and violence. If it war not a condom in the box, it would have been something related to war or killing in form of a "toy"
