Small talk: A breakup museum, Apple's pinch-and-zoom, McFlurry misconduct

A McDonald's M&M McFlurry.

The Dinner Party hosts Rico Gagliano and Brendan Francis Newnam survey the Marketplace staff about news items that didn't quite make the headlines -- perfect for your dinner party conversations this weekend.

This week: Gina Delvac talks about a new art exhibit that has the French (sans Gerard Depardieu) crying in their bordeaux; Ben Johnson chats about an Apple patent that got rejected; and Krissy Clark explains why a Welsh McDonald’s is getting a sprinkling of coal for Christmas.
