We admit that once or twice, while gallivanting through London, we inhaled a six-piece McNuggets like it was our McJob. Was this so wrong? We didn’t think so, though that was before we learned Prince Charles isn’t exactly lovin’ it.
Here’s another interesting nugget. The UK arm of McDonald‘s has just launched a campaign to revise the definition of McJob in British dictionaries. The word was first added to the Oxford English Dictionary in 1986 and defined as, “An unstimulating, low-paid job with few prospects, especially one created by the expansion of the service sector.” It was later made popular by Douglas Copeland in his novel Generation X.
