Cyberluddite: Here are some examples of the other ads in the series:


Holy hell, that's a shiatload of food for $4 in the last one. Can you even get a big mac combo for under $6 now?

They really need to bring back the "We do it all for you" slogan, though. It's way less obnoxious than any other slogan they've ever used.

I know. I wish I was black just so I could shave my already-balding head completely bald and have it look good. It's undeniable, most black guys look cool with shaved heads, while unfortunately, most white guys look like retards, bikers, and/or child molesters. (Yes, I realize there's a lot of redundancy in the phrase retards, bikers, and/or child molesters.)

Last summer my bestie and I went on a road trip. Somewhere in Georgia we stopped at a drive through and got two double cheeseburger meals. It was six dollars and change. We were shocked. She even took a pic of the receipt and put it on Facebook.

Trick question. They're all delicious, but Kool-Aid is NOT food. It's a thirst quenching beverage from the Gods.


Black people drink it more often because you cant notice the stain on their lips - compared to white people and that stain is hard to move with out messing up the skin on a white person's lips...

But it can allow to steal a kiss...

No...no. The "horseshoe" is never an attractive look.


I call that the "monk ring." And yeah, it always looks impotent. If I had a monk ring, I'd sure as shiat shave my head bald every other day or so.

Out of curiosity, what's wrong with that ad? African-Americans are an ethnic group. It doesn't mean that every black person shares the norms of this ethnic group, but it's decidedly NOT racist to acknowledge that the ethnic group exists and that a large proportion of African-Americans identify with it.

If an ad targeting Jews features matza, should the Jewish community get upset? If an ad for a kitchen appliance in Chinatown contains a picture of a Chinese-American eating stir-fry, should the Asian community flip their lid? Should the Muslim community go all Danish-cartoony if an ad marketing deep-fryers to shoppers in Dearborn, MI shows an Arab eating a falafel?

Why the fark does EVERYTHING we see have to go through the "OMG THAT'S RACIST!!" knee-jerk before it gets to the brain?

So you got two double cheeseburgers, two fries, and two drinks for around 6 dollars, and that's somehow not a good a deal anymore? What is it supposed to cost to get that much food? It seems like about a dollar per item is just right. You each had a quick, hot meal made for you for 3 dollars a piece, and you didn't have to get out of your car.

I'm not sure if we Americans are just spoiled, or if no one in this country has ever heard of inflation. Is being able to buy a double cheeseburger for less than a dollar supposed some sort of inalienable right?

Look at that ad someone posted where the guy got all of the food for $4.00, it sounds like such a great deal right? As if, my god, there was some glorious time in this country when a cheeseburger cost a quarter and everybody was living large on just a few bucks a day. Except then you realize that $4 then is about $16 today.

And hey, I'm just going to go out on a limb here and make a wild prediction: fast food is going to continue to get more expensive. Just like everything else.

Actually that price was startlingly low. I paid $6 something for a double cheeseburger, fries and a coke here a week or so ago.

I drove one of those from FL to WA when was in the service - it was the only trip I ever made in it --- it never ran again when I got back to FL. Warranty was still good - Chevy dealer replaced the motor and I immediately traded it back to them for a Chevy Sierra truck ..... never had anymore troubles with it

There was a popular restaurant and bar near the Castro in SF that had a very mixed crowd. One night a week was "ladies night" (nudge, nudge, wink, wink) and the bar staff (of both sexes and persuasions) consistently said it was a bad tipping night.

lohphat: It has nothing to do with race, but with culture.


Of course it does. But, it is easier for people to generate their generalities by using race, sex, or hair color or whatever the f*ck people use to generalize.

I think my motto of hating everyone first and then getting to know them on an individual basis has benefited me quite well in life.

A good little CSB thingamabob...

Marky Mark Wahlberg walked into a dealership here in Newport. He was dressed like a f*cking idiot and has, what, an 8th grade education? The sales people just ignored him. They had no idea who he was. An older salesman approached him and he said he wanted the car on the showroom floor, I think it was a Z. Paid a cash deposit and I think wrote a check for the rest.

Moral, just treat people the same because you never know the outcome even based on your wealth of experience in judging people. If more people understood that we'd be living in a better world. However, they don't, they won't, and Merry Christmas to all.

Because so many white people drink orange juice with dinner?

When I worked as a waiter our euphemism for (poor-tipping) blacks was "Canadians". Do Canadians not tip as well (as Americans)?

Also, I remember the 70's and 80's like they were yesterday and let me tell you the food at McD's used to be 10,000% better than it is now. Same goes for KFC.

I worked at a McDonalds in the mid 70s.

Orange juice was served at breakfast only and you had to defrost it was frozen in individual plastic containers with a foil top, thick and it had a very acidic taste. Pretty nasty.

I am pretty sure quarterpounder then is the same as a quarterpounder now, no difference. The cooking method then was "sear,sizzle,seal" , frozen patties on the grill, press with spatula. When upside started to show liquid flip over and cover with an aluminum press that covered the lenthg otf the grill. Season with salt.

A small fry was in a paper bag, no cups then, The large fry is in the same container as the regular today I believe.
The large drink was is the regular size drink of today.

I do not really remember the price of the the product, girls worked the registers then, guys in back and I did not ever really eat there. One exception, we did have a "back to the fifties" sale on hamburgers one day, I think they were15 or 16 cents, people bought them by the bags full.
Minimum wage around $1.75?

Who advertised to the blacks then? Virtually nobody. The part of the U.S. I grew up in you would never see these ads for McDonalds.

NewportBarGuy: You know who are the worst tippers on the planet? Germans. Seriously. Whether I was selling frozen lemonade as a kid or serving them drinks at a bar. Worst. Tippers. Ever. (On the rare occasion they actually tipped.)


Wouldn't that be an issue with Europeans in general? Because I'm told that tipping is basically unknown in Europe (and Japan), so people from there would not understand that they're supposed to do it.

according to this chart earning 4x sounds about right comparing average 1976 to 2010 actually

anyway the costs seem legit from the early ad. 30-38 cents i found for 1970-79 burger prices, so it seems conceviable that adding fries and a drink would push that to a buck total if you're lookin at comparing the relative prices of those items to they way they are today..
