    We get KXLY here in Alberta, being somewhat close to Spokane.

    Anyways, I'm sitting here watching "Homeland Security" (which by the way is a GREAT SHOW) and a McDonalds commercial comes on that (from what I can remember) was at least partially in Spanish.

    I've never seen this before on an English speaking TV station. What's the deal?

    In Hawaii you used to be able to get rice instead of french fries. I wonder if that's still true?

    There probably are a lot of spanish-speaking people in the Spokane area to work the agriclutural jobs there.

    Maybe they're expecting us all to speak spanish now. McDonalds is starting a movement to change americas official language :D

    To be honest what I find ironic is that when you go to McDonalds 90% of the staff is hispanic. When you go to Taco Bell 90% of the staff is white. :huh: :bluelaugh::laugh:

    Man I saw a spanish McD's ad here in Portland the other day.

    I guess they're embracing multiculturalism or whatever...:rolleyes:

    My son used a coupon at McDonald's the other day and the Hispanic employee could not read it.
