Twitter was all … well … a-twitter last week when it came out that new Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin would be celebrating with a special pre-inauguration family event at Science Museum Oklahoma. Nothing wrong there. Except the food she’d be serving to all the girls and boys, according to her inauguration website, was McDonald’s.
Twitter was enraged. Using the #McFallin hashtag, local Tweeps shared their thoughts on Fallin choosing burgers and fries — and not even burgers and fries from a locally owned company — for her family event.
“I’d like to thank #McFallin for showing Oklahomans that we can laugh in the face of childhood obesity,” wrote @D4M10N, in what we assume was a display of sarcasm. And @MyJRNY came up with this zinger: “#McFallin is already McFailin.”
It even spawned a stunt @marymcfallin account. Our favorite so far:
“Called Mick Cornett’s office and asked to speak with Mayor McCheese. They hung up on me. No sense of humor.”
Oh, Twitter, how quick to angry humor you are. Either way, Fallin still served up McDonald’s at her Saturday event. But Chicken- Fried News has to ask: What about Sonic?
