I'm having flashbacks of how many times I had to get kids meals the last time they had a Clue promotion...

But I'm intrigued and can't wait to pick it up.
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

Do you feel the need to explain to the cashier why you are ordering off the kids menu?

Oh, I saw some little kid with that in the waiting room at my lessons! I'm gonna need to stop by a Wendy's, just to see how bad it is.

Am I the only one looking forward to getting it? It makes me nostalgic for the cheesy sort of things I liked to read when I was young.

I'm apathetic towards it. I mean, it's a kid's meal for Christ sake.

I'm excited!

And young! Best of both worlds!

I have to wonder how big that Connect 4 game is. It looks itty bitty, but then again, my computer is itty bitty, so that might have something to do with it.

This one, clearly based on Discover The Secrets new rumor mongering theme, is likely to be a big disappointment over what you remember from 1999.

The 1999 Wendy's Kid's Meal was really something for kids and and adults alike. It also included a magazine, but a whole lot more.

"will Mustard and Plum ever get along?" Who the *beep* cares ...

The classic stereotype of nerd/jock hate. This only emphasises Hasbro's target audience.

No, you're not the only one. I'm going to try to seek it out, too, just for its novelty.

Perhaps you're right. We always needed a Clue Magazine! ...right? Image

Apathetic means he doesn't care one way or the other.

Thanks for pointing that out Image But still, a Clue Magazine seems pretty novel!
