McDonald's food is disgusting, it's little more than fillers, fat and salt.  When you eat that stuff, you're slowly killing yourself, it's not worth it.

I read the article and still don't know how or why anybody could eat that stuff.  I'd rather take a cue from my neighbor's dog and go around scavenging the feces of other animals.  It'd be cheaper and more nutritious for sure, and at least if I died from it, the death would be quick compared to the slow, lingering death of heart disease and diabetes.

That's why I go to Wendy's for their junior cheeseburger deluxe instead.

some_beer_drinker: i usually order 3 of them. don't usually finish the third one.


You should be ashamed for wasting this highly nutritious food.

I usually buy three, eat two, and smear the two halves of the last one all over the neared homeless guy.

Was the author raised as a ragging douchebag or did society make him that way?

I'm going to start a magazine called "Conservative Consumer Reports" and rate products and companies not on quality, but on a scale ranging from a low of "Enjoy Tossing Pelosi's Salad" to a middle of "Pisses Off the Libs" to a top of "Is That Ronald Reagan Wiping Away a Proud Tear?"

I grew up somewhere with no McDs so I never had their food as a child, first time I ever went in one was at age 15, I wanted to use the bathroom but I was on LSD and the whole experience was so plastic (even the lighting and air in there seemed plastic) that I left and have never returned.
So, I'm that guy, I've never eaten McD, but not because I'm a smug hipster, more because I'm odd.

LemSkroob: The authors point is, the liberal/foodie crowd would claim that eating white rice is a sin, and unless you know the farmer who grew your beans, you may as well be hitler.

Tommy Moo: There's a whole lot of people in this thread just waving their hands and getting angry and calling the author a troll because they have this vague feeling that he MUST be wrong, but they can't come up with a single reason why.


Really? You typed this sentence, which makes me think you can read, but there's no indication that you've actually done so.

The best part is you can order one 'Big Mac style', they remove the ketchup and mustard, and add Big Mac sauce and shredded lettuce. You basically pay a little upcharge and get a Big Mac for $1.49, and no middle slice of bread. No, please, no need to worship me.

Derigiberble: maniacbastard: red beans and rice is cheaper and better for you.

so are many cabbage dishes.

You are assuming the author gives a shiat.  How can he rage against liberals withe read beans and rice?

AverageAmericanGuy: If I eat at McDonald's, I will invariably be shiatting liquids later that day.

I'll pass. Thanks.


If a trip to mcdonalds gives you the shiats you should probably go see a doctor to have your guts looked at.

Bashar and Asma's Infinite Playlist: ZzeusS: Is this one of those articles where the college kid types in lots of words but doesn't really have a point, or make a whole lot of sense?

Yes.  Yes it is.

Yeah it was all over the place. We can't even get an article about the McDouble without weird, political insults and tangents? We've successfully politicized and internalized the McDouble? Awesome.


The author did that.  The farking title of the page (not the article, the page) is "Kyle Smith: Liberals say they care about the poor but drive up their cost of living."

So no, we apparently can't get an article about McDoubles without political attacks.

If the macrobiotic Marxists had their way, of course, there'd be no McDonald's, Walmart or Exxon...

"Junk food costs as little as $1.76 per 1,000 calories, ... A 2,000-calorie day of meals would, if you stuck strictly to the good-for-you stuff, cost $36.32, said the study's lead author, Adam Drewnowski."

This dude is a farking moran, this means you would have to spend over $1000 per month to eat the "good-for-you stuff." Here's the article he is refering too, it says:

"Energy cost of foods in the bottom quintile of energy density, beverages excluded, was $18.16/1,000 kcal as compared to only $1.76/1,000 kcal for foods in the top quintile."

Things in the bottom quintile: sugar, cookies, peanut butter, margarine, lard, olive oil
Things in the top quintile: lobster, oysters, red peppers, blueberries, cod

I didn't realize that eating well meant I had to eat 2000 calories per day of lobster.

I avoided eating at Burger King until I was 19 or so.  Just so I could say I never ate at Burger King.  I guess I was a smug hipster before there were hipsters.

That story was actually pretty good.  It made sense.

The money line:  "If the macrobiotic Marxists had their way, of course, there'd be no McDonald's, Walmart or Exxon, because they have visions of an ideal world in which everybody bikes to work with a handwoven backpack from Etsy that contains a lunch grown in the neighborhood collective."
