550 of the world’s top medics have written an open letter to McDonald’s to say that Ronald McDonald and Happy Meals must be axed to save kids’ health.

(They say that its gimmicks fuel obesity, and that Happy Meals, which come with a free toy, get kids hooked on junk food. Of course they’re speaking to the converted when it comes to me, but as a coulrophobic I would love to see the demise of that scary clown.)
