I indulged in a healthy dinner of Macca’s last night, and tried that new Name-It burger among other things. I think I’ve devised a suitably catchy moniker for it - The Not-Particularly-Good BurgerKing-Ripoff Burger. I’m sure my prize is coming any day now. Provided it’s not a lifetime supply of those burgers, I’ll be happy.
It’s quite funny how they blithely sell these burgers that have "50% daily saturated fat intake" written on the box, yet still do their damnedest to market their healthy wholesome image. I’m sure there’s some alternate-reality where having 150-odd% of your recommended daily saturated fat in one meal is considered healthy, but I think Macca’s may have picked the wrong one. Unless they wanted to make a trillion dollars of course, in which case they’ve definitely come to the right place!
Still, at least they put that 2 mouthfuls of lettuce in your Big Mac - that makes up for all the bad stuff, right?
Maybe in the future we’ll have teleportation at our disposal. That’ll be the ultimate - we’ll be able to laze back on our floating couches and have an edible sack of blended Maccas-and-Coke teleported directly into our stomachs. Mmmmm. None of this pesky chewing business.
On the other hand, while fast food’s great, we’re not all in a frantic hurry. I think "slow food" is a niche market yet to be fully explored. Maccas could have McDonalds, McCafe.. and McHangi. You go in and pay for your meal - then they start digging the hole and heating up the rocks…
