Concerns over MacD sponsorship of Olympics being appropriate
Today, our Daily Mail carries an article concerning how appropriate it is for MacDonalds to sponsor sport events, in light of obesity worries.

Remember - "Money can't buy you happiness - but you can be miserable in comfort"
Obesity is 90% down to the individual. If you choose to eat rubbish food then you can reap the consequences. No good trying to shift the blame onto some other/person/group/business.
McDonald's is not responsible for obesity.
People eating too much McDonald's (and everything else) are responsible.
Just more of the politician's and media's typical victim mentality. Make the voters and readers feel good by blaming the supplier rather than the weak-willed losers unwilling to take responsibility for their own slothful habits. Besides, it makes the lawyers rich.

I’d bet that most Olympic athletes burn more calories in a single event, than they would ever consume in a typical McDonalds combo meal. Which is the key to weight management … calories in > calories out = you get fat. But not to worry … you have no self-control … the Nanny State will step in to help you with your unfortunate circumstances.

Plastic athletes, plastic foods.
Works for me.

McDonalds is CHEAP (atleast SOME items!). Mostly I eat McChicken Sandwiches and their big drinks are on sale for 69cents. Meanwhile, over at Del Taco, they have 3 tacos for $1 on Tuesdays, but the big drink is $2.09!!!! So U gotta shop around. Now, Jack in the box has big drinks for $1. 7-11 has REALLY big drinks (64 oz) for $2 too. Jack in the box has 2 tacos for a buck, so 6 makes a good meal. That is $4 with the drink. If U eat in, you can refill the drink on the way out. CHEAP is one of the most IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS when dealing with FOOD! The only better thing than CHEAP is FREE!!! And to find FREE FOOD, U gotta KNOW SOMEBODY! Like my son knows where to get FREE FOOD! He gets it from his good Mother! Same with the Cats. They get all the free food they can eat from my wife. I get free Queasy Dillas from her. I am SICK TO DEATH of Queasy Dillas, but the price is right! So, if I need LUXURY food, I go to McDonalds.
Somehow, "luxury food" and "McDonalds" in the same sentence makes my brain come to a screeching halt. :S
Ruth Chris Steakhouse...now that's luxury (and delicious!) food.

So you know what I'm talking about. *wistful sigh* I need an angioplasty just thinking about those nice, buttery steaks.
*Stares disapprovingly at his PBJ for lunch* Sheeeey*t.
Another great steak place is the Metropolitan Grill in downtown Seattle. $200 for a steak meal (with a nice wine and sides) for two but it's worth it.
...and King of Prussia: I know where that is--I applied for a job near there, recently.
