Paul B. was on a road trip with his wife when they noticed something odd about their daughter’s Happy Meal toy. Something that, well, wasn’t exactly G-rated.
It sounded like the minion was saying “what the f@#k?”
“After finding it and hearing it go off, my wife brought it to my attention, and we both heard the same thing,” he wrote when he posted the video of the potty-mouthed minion on YouTube. “Though minions speak a language all their own, this little caveman minion spoke something that just didn’t seem quite right. You decide for yourself, but from what I hear, it’s not good.”
And they aren’t the only ones hearing it:

Paul’s video, meanwhile, has already racked up over four-million views. For its part though, McDonald’s is dismissing the supposed cursing as nothing more than “‘Minionese’ jibberish.”
@trisa24 We apologize for any confusion or offense to those who interpreted the sounds for anything other than ‘Minionese’ jibberish. ^HW
