What did that Minion just say?

As a promotion for the upcoming film, McDonald’s is giving out the little yellow guys in its Happy Meals.

The toys come programmed with a few phrases that have some parents asking “What the…?”

A McDonald’s spokeswoman says the allegations that the toys are saying anything profane are not true.

“We’re aware of a very small number of customers who have been in touch regarding this toy, and we regret any confusion or offense to those who may have misinterpreted its sounds. The allegation that this toy is saying anything offensive or profane is not true,” the Oak Brook-based company’s spokesperson Lisa McComb told NBC Chicago.

“The Minion Caveman Happy Meal toy includes 3 sounds: ‘para la bukay,’ ‘hahaha,’ and ‘eh eh,’” McComb added. “Our goal at McDonald’s is to serve up food and fun for our valued customers, and we’re glad to have the Minions on board.”

“Minions,” a prequel of the “Despicable Me” movies, premieres Friday.

Is it perfectly harmless or does the character say something you wouldn’t want your children to repeat?
