Don't Pretend You Don't Want This Vintage McDonald's Officer Big Mac Jail For Your Front Yard

Look at it, it's glorious

Look, we would all like to pretend that we are too grown up to have a restored vintage Officer Big Mac from a McDonald's playground in front of our houses. If you are unfamiliar with Officer Big Mac, he was a McDonaldland character from the 1970s and '80s whose head was a jail. Here is his section from the McDonaldland Wikipedia page:

Officer Big Mac – Featured in several of the campaign's commercials throughout the early 1970s and early 1980s. He was similar to Mayor McCheese in that he had a large Big Mac for a head (minus the vegetables and the special sauce), except he was the chief of police and as such he wore a constable uniform with a disproportionately small custodian helmet resting atop his head bun. As the main source of law and order in McDonaldland, Officer Big Mac spent most of his time chasing Hamburglar and Captain Crook. The character was dropped during the streamlining of the characters in the mid-1980s. Officer Big Mac was voiced by Ted Cassidy.

The deal with this Officer Big Mac is that a guy is Pennsylvania restored it, and put it up for auction on eBay, if you are willing to cough up a starting bid of $6,000. (So far, no one has bid.) We have no idea what these things usually go for, but honestly that seems little on the pricey side and also totally fair. Look at it.
