Un happy meal

Thursday, 16th May, 2013 1:00am

The inspiration of intoxication is the likely reason one young Corkonian found himself stuck in a McDonald's baby chair when indulging on a late night snack: Tuesday morning.

Gardai were called to McDonald's, Winthrop Street, 1am on Tuesday 14 May to assist a young man who had gotten stuck in a child's high chair.

An ingenious impulse to rediscover his childhood years left this cheeky chappy red-faced and awkwardly perched in a sturdy, grey-plastic baby chair while two members of the Gardai surveyed the situation.

After being released from his safe seat, the adventurous customer went on his way without charge and no record has been made of the incident by the Gardai.

Speaking to the Cork Independent, spokesperson for McDonald's Ireland said: “McDonald's is aware of the incident involving a customer who decided to sit in one of our children's high-chairs in Winthrop Street - and as you can see, we recommend that children don't use the high-chair without adult supervision!”

Regular adult seating is available at all McDonald restaurants across Cork.
