[ laughter ] >> oh, boy! >> annually, they sell 435 million pounds of ground beef. they say equal to a herd, each year, now. to a herd of 435,000 cows. >> mmm. >> each year! uh, mcdonald's, annually,
the weight of five saturn v rockets. [ laughter ] reagan likes those things. [ imitating reagan ] well, if you-- if you pile them all up, they'd be a-- a saturn rocket. [ laughter ] [ applause ] all right. they sell three point four billion buns, enough to circle the globe [ imitating reagan ] eight point seven times. [ laughter ] now, here's a-- here's a strange statistic. a new mcdonald's opens every 18 hours, somewhere in the world. >> wow. >> in the time it takes ay i'm reading, right now, mcdonald's has sold about 2000 hamburgers. just in that period of 10 seconds. the original ronald mcdonald-- do you know who that was? >> no. >> i did not know. >> it's on a trivia game. >> nbc "today show" weather man willard scott. [ some laughter ] was the first-- >> yeah. >> wouldn't willard be a little large to be ronald? >> yes. >> now, if you invested in mcdonald's, some years ago,
in 1965, 100 shares of mcdonald's stock were worth $2250. today, their value-- $190,000. >> mmm. >> now, we found some interesting facts, relating to mcdonald's-- and to the fast-food industry, in general. >> yes! [ chuckling ] [ some laughter ] >> if you piled up one million mcdonald's hamburgers, you would have a stack over one foot tall. [ applause ] oh! [ laughing ] >> you're gonna get a call about that, fred? [ laughter ] mr. de cordova-- "i told him not to do that! [ laughter ] they're gonna call!" >> all in jest. >> it's all in jest. this is a jest, mcdonald's. [ some laughter ] tell the lawyer that, when he shows up.
the 40 billionth burger was served to tip o'neill. tip was also served the 25 billionth burger, [ some laughter ] and every one in between. [ laughter ] [ some applause ] the idea for mcdonald's popular new chicken item came from pete rose-- not generally known. one day, as he was playing first base, ball took a bad hop and hit him. as he fell, he screamed, "oh, my mcnuggets!" [ laughter ] [ applause ] [ laughter continues ] recently, los angeles passed a clean-air ordinance for fast food restaurants. on hot days, bob's big boy is required to put his arm down.
statue was not a success. it had bob holding a tray of sheep-neutering tools. [ laughter ] they said, "get that down!" [ laughter ] the biggest big mac of all time was 20 feet in diameter. the biggest whopper was when reagan said he wouldn't raise taxes. [ laughter ] [ applause ] i there are, around the world, but the toughest-- the toughest mcdonald's franchise, in the world, is on the waterfront, in singapore. a cow and a chicken are each given a switchblade, and the loser is served out through the drive-thru window. [ laughter ] more interesting facts. wendy's spokeswoman, clara peller... was once arrested, for hiding inside baseball pitcher jim palmer's underwear drawer and screaming,
[ applause ] interesting fact. more wom-- more men-- more men than women order onions on their burgers. and, if you wait in a grocery line long enough, every one of those guys will stand an inch from your face and bitch about the rams. [ laughter ] over seven million tons of brylcreem... stain the little paper hats worn by fast food clerks. [ laughter ] the original speaker, at jack in the box, was shortened several feet, when a carload of librarians complained about talking into a clown's groin. [ laughter ] the-- [ applause ] the international house of pancakes lives up to its name-- the managers are american, the kitchen help is mexican, and the owners
the famous bell ringer, quasimodo... opened a kentucky fried chicken outlet, in france, but it turned off too many customers because of its slogan, "hump-lickin' good." [ laughter ] >> whoo! >> a person could easily survive on a diet of nothing but fast food, and any guy who is married to a jewish princess does. [ laughter ] [ applause ] in 1 a clerk let ronald mcdonald have it his way, resulting in the first mcperni-- paternity suit. [ laughter ] >> and those are a few facts-- p-paternity. [ cheering ] >> all in jest. >> all in jest. >> all in jest. >> now. look. lemme do-- ya hate-- ya hate to have to do a disclaimer about something that people, i think--
would realize, is in jest. >> yes. >> but, sometimes, when you're talkin' about companies, their sense of humor evaporates-- >> yes. >> right? [ chuckling ] right in midair. i remember sara lee, very well. >> oh, yes. >> all because-- >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> no, maybe i'll tell the studio audience later. >> yeah. >> uh. no, we'll get in trouble. [ cheering and applause ] we'll be back, with robert blake, louie anderson,

[ laughter ] >> i see you have that wonderful, positive attitude, as you usually do, about your work. anyway, what, uh-- what's the occasion? >> this is, uh-- well, i've just rushed over from the set! [ laughing ] >> how many times have you heard people say that, when they come on the show? >> "just didn't have time to change." >> "i just have a minute. i'm sorry i can't stayth i've gotta get back to the set." [ laughing ] >> you don't have to get back to the set, huh? >> no, i've got, uh-- i've got, uh-- as a matter of fact, there's a guy, downtown, with a black suit, walkin' around. he can stay there, all night.

[ chuckling ] >> i know. even though you don't, i think--
[ chucklin two or three years ago-- after you finished "baretta," you said, "i will never, ever do another television series, for those guys in the suits." >> yes. >> right. now, you're doin' a series. >> well, you see, what happened was... i went off, to be a movie star-- >> right. >> and i blew that. [ laughter ] then, i decided to become a gentlemen of leisure and enjoy my millions, which blew that. [ laughter ] uh, probably, you have some-- >> empathy? >> sympatico, in that area. >> some em-empathy. some empathy. [ laughter ] >> so, when the bread went-- [ laughing ] i found myself back down at 5th and los angeles, leaping from building to building in a single bound! >> of course! you go where the work is, right? >> that's right. >> right. >> well, you know, i'm gonna have, uh-- >> but that's not-- >> hollywood stars? >> yeah. >> only, i'm gonna have mine down at 5th and los angeles. >> that would be nice! >> with a little wino
