A couple in Kirkland, WA, claims that a Shrek promotional toy from McDonald's has taught their two-year-old son Tyler to say a very bad word. (The word, which the reporter in this story can only say "appears to be a slang term for the female anatomy, followed by the word 'pork,'" is "pussy.") Is it actually what one of these Teutonic swines is uttering? Judge for yourself here. Depending on your perspective, this is either further evidence that McDonald's should stop luring children with toys or yet another example of how Americans who want to get on TV simply need to go to the local news with a ridiculous story involving children and outrage. Or, perhaps, both.
