The [[Hamburglar]] is a fictional character used in marketing campaigns for McDonald's restaurants. The character was originally introduced as part of the McDonaldland campaign in 1971, aimed at young children. He is also known as Dozer in some parts of the world. The commercials typically followed the same plotline: the Hamburglar steals McDonald's hamburgers, [[Ronald McDonald]] devises a plan to trick him, and everybody gets their hamburgers back. He dresses in a black-and-white hooped shirt and pants, a red cape, and a wide-brimmed hat. Hamburglar was portrayed by actors Frankie Delfino and Tommy Vicini. His vocabulary consisted of nothing other than, "Robble, robble, robble."(on occasions he would say single words along with "robble", such as "Robble robble cheeseburger!"  The voice was originally provided by Howard Morris. Charlie Adler also provided his voice in the 1980s and on the ''Wacky Adventures of Ronald MacDonald'' videos. Although he is a thief, he is still considered a friend of Ronald McDonald and the rest of the McDonaldland gang, who appear to tolerate his kleptomania as an eccentricity.  
[[Flat Earth]] (also known as the Flat Earth myth, flat-earthism, and less commonly platygeism) is the belief that the Earth is flat, despite it having been scientifically proven to be round.
 
It was a common belief in the dark ages but has been widely rejected since the explorer Ferdinand Magellan successfully circumnavigated the globe in 1521.
