Warren Buffett faced a fast-food Thanksgiving in 2008 if US authorities didn't save the financial system, he joked in a CNBC interview in 2010.
"If the government hadn't acted, I would be eating Thanksgiving dinner at McDonald's," he said.
The famed investor and Berkshire Hathaway CEO wouldn't mind too much, as he picks up breakfast at the restaurant chain on his way to work every day.
Buffett is also the proud owner of a McDonald's gold card, meaning he can eat for free at the company's restaurants in Omaha.
