If you're a fan of Fleetwood Mac or puns, this article is about to make your whole day. You're welcome.
"Sell me fries, sell me sweet little fries."
The details box on the Facebook page may be sparse - but that pun really says everything we need to know. Fleetwood, Lancashire is in the north of England, sitting near the coast just above the city of Blackpool. They've got a McDonald's that is often lovingly referred to as the Fleetwood Mac. Yeah, the joke is there - and it's so obvious that you almost feel cheap going for it - but thousands of people fully support it and we have the receipts, folks!
We'll be handing out the puns like:
One person started a campaign to get Stevie Nicks to work the Fleetwood Mac location for a short shift. The description for the campaign just has the sweet little fries pun and lists the event as a party. It's simple, but that simplicity may be part of the genius of the campaign. Whatever the reason, it's working. Over 21 thousand people have given their support so far.

Support and jokes, fam. Jokes.
Even McDonald's got in on it. A spokesperson told NME:
"We've heard some rumours that Stevie Nicks might be keen to visit our own Fleetwood Macs. Next time she's in the area we'd be delighted to welcome her for some sweet little fries before she goes her own way…"
Stevie's people have been contacted, but there's no word yet on whether or not she's willing to serve up some Fleetwood Macs at the Fleetwood Mac. We'll keep you posted.
