Enjoy your Type-2 diabetes, Average American standing in line at Taco Bell.


fark you. Taco Bell is awesome in that once every two months window when the craving hits and nothing but two burrito supremes and a box of tacos will do.

And yeah, I will enjoy my Type-2 diabetes. You enjoy your farking kale and spinach smoothie, asshole.

Wealthier consumers, on the other hand - those earning more than $100,000 - were more likely to visit 7-Eleven.

You're telling me there aren't ritzier places to get three day old powdered donuts? Doesn't Neiman Marcus airlift you three day old donuts - powdered with Napoleon's dandruff, nothing less - within a hour or your Lexus back?

Harbinger of the Doomed Rat: darch: Listen, I love a nice, sloppy burger just as much as the next red-blooded 'Murkin, but why is it that I somehow have managed to avoid setting foot in a McDonalds or Burger King in, say, 25 years? Because I find the food to be disgusting. Everyone knows it's utter garbage laden with chemicals and fillers, but they go anyway. It has nothing to do with "convenience"- there's small independent burger joints literally everywhere- it has EVERYTHING to do with Americans being willfully lazy and taking the path of least resistance.

[www.rigsofrods.com image 500x389]

Please, tell us all about those eeevil chemicals!!! in fast food.

Also, it has WAY less to do with Americans being "lazy" and a lot more to do with a whole lot of Americans being pretty damn poor.  Yeah, there are a number of local burger joints near me, but just one burger and a drink from one of those places would buy me a couple days worth of food at McDonalds or BK.  A good portion of the people in this country can't afford $10+ per person to eat out and that sure as hell isn't the result of them being lazy.

This reminds me of smug Canadians who spurn Tim Horton's, claiming that the coffee is just generic swill.

"So where do you get your coffee?"

"Starbucks."

So, I read the list.  Seems about right.  The same convenience stores, fast food joints, and Walmarts that you see everywhere.

What did subby think would be popular, farmer's markets and vinyl record shops?

I bet if the stores that subby likes were popular, subby wouldn't like them anymore.

Capitalism in action, baby! Both guns blazing... bam bam bam! Target anchor store there! FffffffffffewBAM! Freestanding McDonalds there! *ping ping ping* <ricochet noise>, and you get a 7-11 over there! Jobs for peeps, bargains for consumers, win-win. I love it.

Wow. That list is the least surprising list in the history of lists. They're popular because they deliver the best value to the customer. How do I know that?

Sometimes I wonder how the McDonald's across the street from Wal-mart in my city, makes enough money to stay open while people buy and dine at the McDonald's inside Wal-mart.

Bullshait, it's about companies not willing to pay their employees more, so people eat where they can afford to. Just because these places are "popular" doesn't mean it's the primary choice of the patrons. If you had employers shelling out money that would be considered a living wage in the area the employee resides, you better believe for a lunch break he or she would be going to a better quality restaurant than the ones listed (especially if it's an hour lunch for a sit down place).

Keenan: I noticed it on the computer this morning. Look here. This is the smug over South Park. It's... getting bigger and gaining strength.
Cartman: The smug?
Keenan: The smug is getting so massive that it's moving west... and fusing with the San Francisco smug... Here. [points to the smug over the California-Nevada border, near Reno] These two smug clouds are combining, fueling each other. Now take a look at this.
Stan: What is that?
Keenan: It's the smug from George Clooney's acceptance speech at the Academy Awards.
Stan: George Clooney's acceptance speech?
Keenan: Did you hear it? He talked about how people in Hollywood are ahead of the curve on social mattes. He even took credit for the Civil Rights movement -Look!! The point is... the smug from his acceptance speech has been slowly drifting north since he gave it, but that's relatively minor. The big problem is this even more powerful smug from FARK Thread #8247004, which will absorb the Clooney speech cell... and they're headed straight for the supercell. The South Park and San Francisco smug is already at critical mass. If it gets hit by FARK Thread #8247004 after that absorbs George Clooney's acceptance speech, it will be a disaster of epic proportions. The perfect storm... of self-satisfaction.
Ranger McFriendly: We've got to tell the townspeople! South Park still has a chance to make it through the storm!

If by ignore, you mean fully quote the whole offending post whilst demonstrating your own interest, thus skirting the filter of anyone who (quite unlikely) had me on ignore, then perhaps you haven't thought your cunning plan completely through.
