PRIZE DRAWING: Because I Impulsively Purchased A Gift Card While Waiting In A Slow Checkout Line

I'm Lovin' It

While waiting in the checkout line, some people impulsively buy candy, gum, or a copy of the National Enquirer with an unflattering picture of some celebrity. I didn’t buy any of that. Instead, I impulsively purchased a $25 McDonald’s gift card and now I’m giving it away to a lucky Impulsive Buy reader.

If you happen to win the gift card, don’t thank me. You should thank the mother in front of me in the checkout line who requested two price checks and didn’t have her coupons out when she reached the cashier. If I didn’t have to wait in line for as long as I did, I wouldn’t have seen the gift card hanging above the checkout line’s gum and candy shelves, and the idea of a prize drawing wouldn’t have popped into my head.

To enter The Impulsive Buy’s McDonald’s gift card drawing, leave a comment with THIS post. I don’t really care what you say in your comment, but it would be nice if you told me which McDonaldland character you would most want to party with in Las Vegas. For those of you who need a McDonaldland refresher course, Wikipedia has a list of McDonaldland characters.

Please don’t forget to fill out the email field because I’ll be emailing the winner for his or her mailing address. The Impulsive Buy will stop accepting entries on Friday, September 30, 2011 11:59 p.m. Hawaii Standard Time. Only one comment allowed per person, and it’s only open to U.S. residents who are at least 18 years old. U.S.-only because the gift card can only be used in the U.S.

There’s one more thing. If you have a Twitter account, you can get an additional entry if you tweet the following before Friday, September 30, 2011 11:59 p.m. Hawaii Standard Time:

@theimpulsivebuy I’d like to party with (insert here the McDonaldland character you would like to party with the most) in Vegas. BIG MAC 4 LYFE!

So just copy, paste, insert the McDonaldland character you’d like to party with, and tweet. Only one tweet per Twitter account.

Good luck!

  1. The Hamburgler creeps me out beyond belief. I hated him as a child and still harbor feelings of loathing for him. Luckily, the totally amorphous, nondescript blob of Grimace totally made up for that creepy ginger.

  2. I’m taking Birdie. First of all, she can fly me there herself. Second, she seems so straight laced, which of course means she’s gonna go “birds gone wild” with me once I’ve poured a few Long Island Iced Teas down her gullet. Lemme at those McNuggets, baby!

  3. Mayor McCheese because with his tophat and neon pink tuxedo jacket, there’s sure to be some sort of big pimpin goin on.

  4. I’d like to party in Vegas with the Hamburgalor. You don’t get a name like that for nothing, so that sneaky son of a gun must be a good time.

  5. I’d definitely would want to party with mayor mccheese just because if I end up losing all my money I could always kill him and make his gigantic head feed me for months.

  6. I’d kick it with Grimace as long as he doesn’t bring the Hamburglar with him; I like to get my snack on without thinking some escaped con is going to take it.

  7. It sounds fun to party with the McNugget Buddies. That’s not only a fun way to enter this contest, but also a sly, and exceptionally cheesy way to try and get a girl to come home with me (this is assuming of course, that I have sunken low enough in life to actually nickname parts of my anatomy the McNugget Buddies…)

  8. Grimace definitely. He looks like the kind of guy you want on your side in a bar fight..he may not have long arms for punching, but he could always be my human shield! Plus, he looks like a cuddler, hotel rooms are always freezing…he could be my extra blanket.

  9. I would definitely go with grimace, because nothing can kill the grimace. Also if I win, I’ll trade you the gift card for Pho.

  10. I had a choice in mind, but I looked at the list because it sounded interesting. And I changed my mind. The Griddler.

    I have no clue what he looks like. But I’m sure Vegas could cheer him up after being the worst villain ever.

  11. I would definitely not want to party with Ronald McDonald in vegas. I feel like he might be the type to slip you a roofie and the next day you’d be waking up to a giant orange afro on a white guy who looks like he’s freshly retired out of the porn industry. It’s just too creepy. I’d probably want to party with the Burglar, he looks like he’d be a fun dude. Maybe he could steal me some free drinks.

  12. I’d pick Sundae to hang with and Grimace to party with. Dogs make the best companions and who doesn’t love a big purplle Simpleton w/fat ankles and loves milkshakes to party with?

  13. Totally the Fry Guys. I think they’d make good pillows when lying down in inappropriate places at the end of the night…

  14. I’ll have to go with the Fry Kids. They’re too young to gamble so we can all sip Ginger Ale and hit the arcades.

  15. With this gift certificate I will impulsively buy all the coffee and chicken nuggets I see on the menu.

  16. What’s Vegas without a lounge singer? My choice is Mac Tonight! McDonaldland may not claim him in its city limits, but that’s what Vegas is all about – ignoring the limits, baby! He rains down snappy jazz from his piano in the sky. I am so there!

    If I must drop down to street level, then I will hang with Officer Big Mac and have my own private Cops: Las Vegas evening.

  17. THIS POST.

    Also, I’d definitely hang with the Hamburglar. Criminals don’t give a fuck when they’re hanging out.

  18. I would want to party with Uncle O’Grimacey in vegas because he would bring his great shamrock shake and we could put alcohol in it and get drunk as we could get and never get caught.
