Make a McDougall





Introduction: Make a McDougall

About: I'm a year 12 student in Queensland, Australia. I work part-time at McDonalds and I'm about to go have lunch.

Working at McDonalds for 2 years has taught me many valuable life-skills...
This is the most important...

1 Pen
1 Medium McDonalds Fry Box (only tried it on Australian one's - feel free to tell me if it works on anything else)
2 Hands (Hell, 1 Hand, I managed it holding a camera)

A small puppet that, if used correctly, will move it's mouth up and down. Cheap, recycling, a reason to eat more fast food: Its the invention of the century!

Step 1: Open the Fry Box

Nothing hard here, most of you will get yours opened and full of fries anyway.

Step 2: Opening Mechanism

Invert the box, place your finger as shown in the picture and press firmly (being careful not to break it at edges).

Step 3: Complete It

This is where your inner artist takes over - Using the nicko (or any pen on hand - if it'll write on the cardboard) begin to draw the face. Feel free to use the image a guide, this is my interpretation of my manager, Muzza, who was not entirely appreciative of my artistic talent when I was meant to be working.

To use, place fingers on either side at the top, squeeze gently and the mouth should begin to close. If the mouth doesnt close far enough, bend it forward and then try again, if the box breaks when you squeeze it, just make another and squeeze it higher up / not as hard.

Step 4: Destroy the Evidence

Burn it
Bin it
Hide it in your pocket
Just don't show it to your friends.

Seriously, you may be sitting around the table thinking of something fun to do, but DO NOT attempt this in front of a live audience. They will NOT find it funny, they will shun you, they will ignore you, you will be forced to post lousy instructables from a cold, lonely shed..

Once you are in private, feel free to laugh at your own antics and wish you had real friends.

    Posting Instructables no one looks at - Me Wishing I had a friend that wasn't partially insane- Me

    This house was built by an electrician. As a result, the fans are dodgy, the lightswitches in the kitchen turn on the lights in the office, and every room (including the shed) has at least 5-8 powerplugs + TV aerial port.

    You, maybe. But there's a fair while left and I'll be the first to admit mine is just barely relevant to this competition...

    Another thing: the pencil case in the background has an official McDonald's nametag sauying "McDouche". It costs me $5 to replace these since they are so often stolen. This one is superglued on. Today (3 days after the photo was taken) the tag was removed by means of a gaping hole in my pencilcase - reward if returned.

    Not that cold here Bundaberg, but occasionally it gets a bit chilly. There's old blankets in one of the boxes and I had a heater (until I realised it was making the lights / my external harddrive flick on and off)

    -googles- hmm, well im in the northwest U.S it gets pretty cold, so i was thinking about that. well a while i kept a server outside to keep it from getting so hot, (about 50 to 60 degrees C)

    One of my mates had a CPU that would kick up to 60 by the time you loaded BIOS. Running at 2am with a desk fan pointing straight into the side-less case, he reckons he clocked it at 75 before it crashed.

    damn, that would suck. well, my hard drive just decided to fail and then i just got an older one, then my ethernet card and power supply failed, i just said forget it, a celeron is just not really worth it.

    Any word on whether this works on non-AU fry boxes? Its surprisingly hard to find a good database listing international fry-box dimensions...

    Two more weeks of solitary confinement for ya, At least this disguises the talking to yourself like the people who wear a bluetooth headset and walk around...
