A cheap way to give your child the same food that comes in a "happy meal." This is done by purchasing the "two cheeseburger meal" plus a kid size drink. You then give the kid one of your cheesburgers and a few of your fries. But, of course, you don't get the toy.
"Mom, I want a happy meal."
"No, I'll just share my two cheesburger meal with you and get you your own drink."
