And, for many traumatized survivors and employees, it brings back flashbacks of the unspeakable horrors they witnessed the last time such an event took place.
"I don't think I'll ever really forget it," said one McDonald's employee. "Even just humming the themesong brings back terrible memories. I can still smell the noxious body odor of hundreds of unwashed, sweaty men."
The stories of carnage were the same everywhere. One McDonald's had to be closed after investigators found the bodies of most of the store's employees hanging in the back freezer. One store also reported that they were forced to hide out in the store office until the new toys came out, having to turn to cannibalism for survival.

Stores are trying a variety of tactics to repel the unwashed armies. Many have dug trenches and moats around their stores, with many also employing more lethal tactics such as spike pits. Stores have also hired private security and have encouraged the use of lethal force to prevent unauthorized personnel from entering.
Many drive-through windows will be armed with heavy machine gun turrets, as well as coin bins for McDonald house charities.

The greatest threat that many managers are worried about comes from the legions of Applefags who will become enraged berzerkers at their waifus' absence from the store. At press time, East-Coast night shift managers have begun donning their warrior clown facepaint, and distributing pistols and cyanide capsules to their employees.
