The day's not over yet and this couldn't wait until tomorrow–

Just caught wind that a New Delhi McDonalds restaurant, for some the potent symbol of everything wrong with a globalized 'McWorld', has been torched by a violent anti-American crowd in India.

Thankfully, there was only one casualty: an innocent bystander, curiously described as a red haired albino man and identified as one Ronald McDonald of Oak Brook, Illinois.

Nothing left of him but charred shell of his former self.

Check it out–
