* ItWillNeverCatchOn: In the BBC documentary ''[[http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01k6l6lThe Men Who Made Us Fat (part 2)]]'', [=McDonald's=] head Roy Kroc wasn't convinced people would eat larger portions then they were used to and that the Super Sizing idea wouldn't work, or at the very least cause those who had a large lunch to eat less for dinner.



** In 2015, rival Burger King proposed that for World Peace Day, they join forces and make the [=McWhopper=] to promote peace in the world (and raise money for charity). [=McDonalds=] turned them down. BK went on to do it with four other restaurants/fast food places. (Though if one is willing to make the effort, they could make their own [=McWhopper=] by buying them separately and combining them.)

* ScrewedByTheLawyers: [=McDonald's=] frequent heavy-handed attempts to supress dissent and critical comment. The star example is the "McDonalds Two" case in Britain, where the full weight of [=McD's=] corporate lawyers was used to attempt to crush two protesters drawing attention to the fast food company's shadier practices. The Two elected to fight back, dragging the case on for five long years, with most of the British and international press supporting the underdog, and every day in court brought more and more bad publicity. The case cost them millions with no realistic chance of recouping the costs from two unemployed activists....
** More recently, McDonalds' attempt to ensure it was not just the "official" but the ''only'' "restaurant" providing food to staff and ticket-holders in the London Olympics. Their refusal to let the canteen serving Olympic contractors serve chips caused a lot of resentment and unrest.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Some of the foods items are popular overseas to the point, some at exclusive there.
** [=McLobster=] is popular in Canada
** Many restaurants in Asia have fries with seaweeds with it's a favor.
** Because eating cattle meat is a strict taboo in India, veggie burgers are commonly ordered. Don't worry about for some who 'do eat' meat, mutton - sheep/goat meat - is used instead. However, dairy products are okay since the cattle is allowed to live, and yes, there's a patty made out of cheese called "[=McSpicy=] Paneer" that is popular.
