McDonald's can't deflect the cancellation of Orange Hi-C with a ridiculous utensil

McDonald's is replacing Orange Lavaburst Hi-C
McDonald's french fry utensil, the frork, solves a problem no one has, while the orange goodness of Hi-C is traded for a proprietary Sprite flavor.
Available for one day only - the frork. Yep, you read that right, a frork. While they replace Orange Hi-C with an alternate Coca-Cola product, Sprite TropicBerry, they're trying to buy us off with a useless utensil. In theory, a frork is an hunk of plastic that holds 3 fries and allows yo to scoop up excess ketchup or other sauce without soiling your hands.

McDonald's  Frork So, if you're napkin-challenged and need a solution to getting sauce on your hands, Friday is the day to get one of these devices at your local McDonald's. Mind you, there is a great chance you will not be able to have orange Hi-C along with a test-drive of Ronald McDonald's whacky utensil.

We're not fooled, Clown! We want Hi-C, not a misspelled fork that seems like a poor substitute for further solidifying your Coca-Cola deal with a Sprite addition. And those new McDonald's uniforms have an odd 'sci-fi' vibe. They can shift their color-scheme, but ditching Orange Hi-C tor TropicBerry has not gone unnoticed. It's not a favorable alteration.

By the way... how about bringing back the Hamburgler, Grimace, and Mayor McCheese? I'd gladly trade away this new Sprite beverage for a return to McDonaldland! :)
