McDonald's Canada Will Save Your Fries from Fry Theft

Don't be a victim of fry crime, or frime.

McDonald's takes its fries seriously in Canada. So seriously, in fact, that as part of its new mobile app the chain promises to save your fries from fry theft. A spokesperson asks: "Has this ever happened to you? You're about to enjoy a delicious order of McDonald's French fries when, suddenly, you're a victim of fry theft."

McDonald's Canada has noticed a "troubling rise in fry crimes — or 'frimes' across the country." Apparently, 99 percent of Canadians are at risk for frimes. McDonald's new Fry Defender "turns your smart phone into a fry fighting machine." It's part of the McDonald's Canada app, and is available now in the App Store.
