A Cup Of The Clown's

While out and about this weekend, suffering the same store-based woes faced by many this season, I spent some time trapped in a McDonald’s with two eight year olds. It isn’t the first time I’ve tried my mouth at their coffee, but I’m hoping it will be the last. The reason I bring it up, however, is to discuss something I found odd about the way Ronald goes about dispensing his caffeine.

The fluid itself is terrible, or at least in my opinion, so we won’t bother debating the flavour merits. What IS interesting though, is the sheer level of design they’ve put into delivering their vile clown-juice. The cups are double walled, a feature that saves you from the two-cup or little-ring-thing techniques, and the lid, when compared to the lids offered by other coffee-chuckers, is perfection.

I’m not saying you should check out McD’s brew, but I am saying someone needs to trick a Starbucks executive into holding one of their receptacles.

The Art Of The Deal

Listen, I’m no genius – as evidenced by the fact that I went to McDonald’s for food yesterday – but I’m fairly sure this sign could just as easily say “pick any 254 for $505.46” and it would be just as useful. 

I mean, it would make sense to me if it was pick any 2 for $3.50, or even $3.97, but, as it stands, it’s just a suggestion for those who are really terrible at math.

Is fat headedness at cable networks going too far?

KFC Double Down Sandwich

From the CNN article entitled “Is fat fare at fast foods going too far?

“The bun-free (“so meaty, there’s no room”) sandwich features two pieces of bacon, two slices of melted cheese and “Colonel’s Sauce” – which KFC officials said is a “zesty mayonnaise” — slathered between two chicken filets, either original recipe (540 calories and 32 fat grams per KFC.com) or the slightly slimmer grilled version (460 calories and 23 fat grams).”

Oh, how absolutely ghastly! Large numbers imply horrible results for our waistlines!

Er, wait a minute – here’s a screenshot (with MS paint emphasis) from the McDonald’s nutrition calculator:

McDonald's Comparison Boigahs

I’m not saying a Big Mac is good for you, but the media should keep their cases of the vapours to appropriate situations.

Either that or be honest about ALL fast food.
