McDONAlD'S

I usually write smart-ass commentary on the lowercase L photos submitted by readers, but in this case Holly Jenson and her programmer friend did fine on their own.
A friend of mine pointed out that, while we might assume that the intended word is "small," it could also very well be "smail" (an electronic mail transport protocol) or "smali" (an assembler for Java on the Android platform), "Java" being, of course, a slang term for coffee. Perhaps the Roseburg MacD's is actually offering up an Egg McMuffin with an embedded Java VM assembler, and for only $4.80! 
 Bonus points for the DOUBlE l! Or, smarties Holly and friend, is that actually binary for 3?
