McDonald’s Tells Tobias Wong and Ju$t Another Rich Kid To Quit It

21790.180B005C.jpg

Our friends at CITIZEN:Citizen in SF write to tell us they’ve been hit with a cease and desist order from McDonald’s Corporation for selling the product to the right. Although we can’t imagine why, can you?

Coke Spoon 2, designed by Tobias Wong and Ken Courtney (Ju$t Another Rich Kid) is part of the designers’ series of useful gold-plated accessories which also includes the ball-point pen cap Coke Spoon 1 (no complaints from Bic yet). Mc Donald’s has ordered the product be removed from CITIZEN:Citizen’s website.

Odd, because McDonald’s apparently already discontinued these spoons–the real spoons:

The original plastic coffee stirrer was taken out of production when the fast food conglomerate discovered it was being used for drug purposes in the 1980′s. McDonald’s became uncomfortable with the affiliation when the coffee stirrers were constantly being used as Exhibit A’s in drug cases.
