Funky Food Friday: Mmm...paper...

Ever try cramming a cheeseburger into a Christmas stocking, or sending a shake through the mail? Us neither. We did, however, salivate over giving and receiving something just as delicious, and a whole lot less messy: McDonald's Gift Certificates. Back in the day, a 50-cent single gift certificate was plenty to buy a burger, and get change back. And if you were lucky enough to score an entire 10-pack, you could keep the whole neighborhood in french fries and hot apple pies until well after New Year's.

Check out this McDonald's commercial from 1975. Most important, it reminds us that there was once a time when Corey Feldman was adorable.
