Wendys give kids the horny Donna Summer

Wendys - the square burger joint - had been giving out free CDs with their kids' meals.

That, in itself, is puzzling. What does a six year old want with a CD? Will they even know what it is?

Still, surely the CDs will feature music that connects with the children, though?

Oh, yes. What kid wouldn't be excited to get hold of a song their grandparents' grandparents probably got sick of back in the past. On a - what is it called again, mummy? - on a compacted disc. Cheer up, it'll be back to Spongebob figures next week.

Or possibly a little sooner, as although Wendys swear blind they put the clean version of the Donna Summer track in the meals, parents were equally adamant they could hear the original words ("so horny") rather than the family-friendly version ("so bad").

Although, clearly, no child would have bothered to play the Donna Summer single, even if they knew what to do with it, Wendys have still quietly pulled the track from the meals.

It's bad, but at least, unlike McDonalds, Wendys didn't hand out twelve million poisoned drinking cups to the kiddies.
