Predicting your order at McDonald's? It's been a happening thing in Fond du Lac for decades.

Would You Like Fries With That? McDonald’s.   Already Knows the Answer.  (The New York Times, 10/22/2019)
The fast-food chain is turning to artificial intelligence and machine learning in the hopes of predicting what customers want before they decide.

The print edition headline:  Next at McDonald's:  May I Predict Your Order?

The Peanut Butter Conspiracy made their only appearance on the Billboard Hot 100 with "It's a Happening Thing".  The single debuted at #94 for the week ending March 11, 1967, and spent 3 weeks on the chart, peaking at #93 for 2 weeks.  It continues to find a home at Little Steven's Underground Garage.
