Kosher - The Final McNugget Frontier

Distraught kosherites in Israel will finally be able to have their (what's supposed to be) "chicken" McNuggets and hamburgers. "At two of the fast-food chain'’s kosher branches in Tel Aviv, the standard logo has been replaced with a blue and white one, with 'McDonald's' printed only in Hebrew, in white letters against a blue backdrop. The word 'Kosher' is printed in English and Hebrew to the side of the restaurant name."

Everyone can read Hebrew when it phoenetically spells English words.

I've never been one to follow the kosher way and only make it a few days into Passover before I can't help myself to a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with levened bread. However, to those kosher kids out there, this is welcome news that they too may enjoy the golden arches (really an upside-down shin).

McDonald's does what it takes to say "shalom, do you want fries with that?"
