Rendrago's comment is turning me green. I too found a bandaid in a Subway tuna sub once (about 4 years ago--and it wasn't just a regular bandaid--it was a ROUND one...ewwwww...ewwww). Never ever ever eat Subway again..

McDick's has the best hangover food around. The grease coats your stomach beautifully.

Other than hangovers, I rarely have a taste for McDick's.

Not to mention their new ad compaign is racist.

How so? Because the ads have black people in them?

I ate at a place yesterday, and had no idea what was
in the food. One of the things looked kinda gross, like
maybe an eyeball with bread covering it... figured what
the heck, it's just an eyeball, can't hurt me. Turned out
it was a donut hole, so it wasn't as bad as I'd thought.

I ate at a diner about a month ago. I was eating a chicken dish which had a red sauce. Anyhow, as I was eating it I bit down onto something that was a little biatchewy and didn't have the texture of any food I recognized. I pulled it out of my mouth and sure enough it was a band-aid. I almost gagged. I didn't sue, but I sure as hell am never eating there again. Hopefully that band-aid was thoroughly cooked along with the sauce it was in. lol :/

I used to think that suing McDonalds over little things for millions of dollars was sort of stupid, but seeing as how the very existance of the place has just been annoying the hell out of me lately--and this isn't even getting into that idiotic ad campaign--I'd say, everyone, find a reason and sue away. If everyone gets on it, we can have them bankrupt by 2010.

I found a bloody band-aid in a chocolate sundae at a mom & pop
ice cream place once...luckily I hit it with my spoon & dug it out...they offered me another sundae, money..whatever...all you can do is never go back & make sure you tell everyone you know and tell them to tell everyone they know.

Scabs...posh im sure it was deep fat fried goodnesss

I think the worst thing about the new ad campaign is the fact that it doesn't even make sense according to its own idea.

Rollerblade basketball? Whichever ad wingnut that thought of that one should be savagely beaten in front of their children. The very concept of it is insultingly stupid.

And I don't eat at McDonald's anymore. I don't think paying $5 for what is essentially cafeteria food that I can hardly choke down is something I can justify to myself any more.

The advertising campaign that really pisses me the fark off is that retarded Quizno's "mutated rat/roadkill" one.
WHAT THE HELL are those creatures supposed to be? I think a Band Aid in my food is less nauseating than those Quizno's tooth-decayed smelly rodents.

Beppo, you can blame this guy for the Quizno's ads:

Ew some lady found a condom in her clam chowder soup. remember that headline?
2004-02-28 06:21:22 PM  
McDonalds should sue her for revealing the secret recipe for their McNuggets.

-- or --

She should at least be happy that there was nutritional meat in at least one bite of the food she purchased.
2004-02-28 06:49:29 PM  
Hey, say what you will about the Spongmonkeys, they're doing wonders to increase Quizno's "brand awareness". Love 'em or hate 'em, it plants the words "Quizno's subs" in your brain, which is the whole point of advertising.

The gruesome find also has prompted her to swear off fast food.

I'm down to twice a month, max, as far as fast food goes...old habits die hard, and I used to eat the stuff every damn day. I'm trying to cut it out of my diet completely, but between the Pavlovian cues and my tendency to spend a lot of time out and around town, it ain't easy.

this is some WEIRD mcdonalds site a friend forwarded to me earlier ---- uh...

On a related note, I ordered a 'Mexican Pizza' at Taco Bell a few months back. It looked as though someone had hocked a loogie right into the center of it. :| Of course I didnt notice this until I got back to work with it with only a few remaining minutes of lunch break left.

Eww to this headline. Eww to this entire thread!

Oh, I also found a boiled grub worm on a crown of broccoli served to me at Lubys Cafeteria about 3 years ago. It was all covered in cheese, and I only barely avoided eating the little bugger.

I was a bit distressed, but from what I understand, they grow their own veggies without a bunch of pesticides, so I just politely asked to trade it in for a piece of pie. Come to think of it, it wasnt such a bad experience. It was damn good pie.

If she's swearing off fast food because of this, then's she's already gotten something great from McDonald's

Not to mention their new ad compaign is racist.

I don't think that it's exactly racist, but McDonalds advertisers know their target demographic. For example, I havn't eaten that shiat for years, but I've noticed that whenever I walk past the McDonalds on the corner, I can look in and see that about three-quarters of the customers are black. I live in a fairly white/asian neighborhood, so the number of blacks in there is really amazing considering the black population isn't all that high. It's sad that they target a entire race/curture so squarly with their ads, but it's even sadder that so many people (not just blacks, but statistically mostly blacks) from poorer areas continue to eat day after day at McDonalds, ignoring the health risks. Malnutricion is a major problem in America, esp for those below the national income median. Running asshats like McDonalds outa business is a good way to start correcting the problem.
