4. How would that affect initial UI claims?
McDonald's hiring would have no effect on people getting laid off and seeking claims. It would only affect people dropping off of continuing claims for a job, and that number is a week behind.

7. Ah, I know this game...
Make a comment that's not really relevant to the topic.
When called on it, instead of admitting the irrelevancy, change the subject to something else, preferably using hyperbole.

Gotcha.
