Disease Proof

Dumb McDonald's...

Far be it from me to pass up an opportunity to ridicule fast food. So, here I go. Stuff reports that McDonald’s was offering a 10-cent gas discount with purchase of a Big Mac, medium fries, medium soft drink and a hot apple pie. Shameless and unhealthy!

Now, get this. Some freak show has consumed over 23,000 Big Macs during his lifetime, and, he’s PROUD of it! Sigh. Check out AOL News for the whole dumb story.

The depth of fast food stupidity never ceases to amaze me.

It's sad that he has nothing better to do in the first place than to keep track of how many big macs he's eaten. I admit that I like the occasional Big Mac, but that is a little obsessive.

And this deal they are offering is not even worth it unless your eating a ridiculous amount of those combos. And people will do it because they are stupid, not because McDonalds is stupid. McDonalds is mart for doing it because they know people will do just about anything these days to save a few bucks on gas. However, the article is right, this should be offered with more healthy choices on the menu.

I am not sure why McDonald's is dumb? It looks like it could be just the latest of marketing efforts that have made them one of the most successful companies in history. Their job is to make money, not be a substitute for personal responsibility. The people who are dumb are the people who eat fast food too much and damage their health. Pointing the finger at the wrong place sends the wrong message and avoids the true issue.

Did you see how much that combo costs? Almost twice as much as it does in the states. If eating unhealthy is that expensive in NZ, I hate to see how much it costs to eat healthy.
