The McDonald's fast food chain has conceded that a newly introduced burger designed to tap in to concerns about the global financial meltdown was "deeply misjudged." The burger, known as the "Freddy Mac" was tagged as "At only 99 cents, a real bloody mess!" but failed to woo customers. The intention was cleary to tie in the "Nightmare on Elm Street" character Freddy Krueger and the failed mortgage giant Freddie Mac, but McDonald's has now withdrawn the burger - a combination of lots of ketchup and red cheese - and according to one McDonald's insider "It will never return."
