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.

assjuice: More like they are the most numerous and widespread chains.
letrole: Anyone who feigns disgust at the idea of eating a Big Mac also tends to:1. Own a TV but haven't turned it on in years2. Drink microbrewery beer3. Watch Japanese children's cartoons on a Mac4. Appreciate the warmth of vinyl phonograph records5. Read books at Starbucks6. Claim to prefer girls with small breasts7. Make snide remarks about Wal-Mart.8. Walk past a smoker and force pretentious coughing noises9. Take comfort in believing size doesn't matter10. Ride a bike wearing spandex stretch trousers
TheHappyCanadian: where do you eat, smugmitter?
Clemkadidlefark: Smug is not the In Color this year, Subby

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!
lindalouwho: A decent hot lunch?What, are you about 2'8 and 45lbs?
letrole: i've notified the constable, he shall call round soon for a quick chat
grumpfuff: Read his handle. He posts that list in lots of topics: "People who X are also likely to:". Just ignore the sad, boring troll.
T-Servo: This reminds me of smug Canadians who spurn Tim Horton's, claiming that the coffee is just generic swill.
