Alltop, confirmation that I kick ass

You’ve probably all already seen it. It’s all over the internet. But in case you haven’t, the following video is just one more reason why you should avoid McDonald’s at all cost. You know, besides the whole deforestation issue, the methane issue and the fact that the consumption of grains by cows is one of the reasons we don’t have enough food to feed the world.

Oh and don’t forget the play areas. You know, those bacteria traps filled with pee, snot, vomit and flu germs  that you KNOW no McDonald’s employee has ever entered to clean. EVER! And is the reason your child came down with that creepy hoof and mouth disease thing!

Apparently  some woman named SALLY DAVIES  put a Happy Meal on her coffee table uncovered and proceeded to take a picture of it daily for six months. And guess what happened to it? NOTHING! Absolutely nothing. It didn’t rot or get moldy or stinky or anything. It looked the same on DAY 1 as it did on DAY 180.

Yeah. Gross. Watch.

Okay, if that doesn’t make you a vegetarian or at the very least a permanent convert to the In-N-Out Burger, nothing will.

Actually I wasn’t completely shocked. As anyone who has ever vaccuumed under the back seat floor mat of their car and discovered an old french fry will tell you, fast food can last forever!

I don’t know what exactly makes it last forever. Preservatives. Maybe. Although McDonald’s denies it.  SALT! Probably! I mean have you seen the sodium content of restuarant food?

In any case. It’s disgusting. And no, I take no comfort in the fact that when the world ends only cockroaches and McDonald’s food will survive.  It does not make me feel better knowing that long after the Eiffel Tower and Washington Monument have crumbled to dust, all that will remain is bad fast food. I mean, what kind of legacy is that to leave behind for alien life forms to discover? What will they think of us? You know, besides  that we destroyed our environment and consumed our planet like locusts. Yeah, they’re gonna think we had bad diets. And they’d be right.

Anyway, I know this won’t stop people from eating McDonald’s. Know why? It’s cheap. Cheaper than fruits and vegetables and whole grains and lean meats that aren’t injected with hormones.

Experts think people eat poorly because they’re not educated on nutrition. Wrong. We’re inundated with nutritional information. There isn’t a person in the U.S. who hasn’t heard about the rising obesity rate, even among children, and the importance of good nutrition.

But the truth is, people buy crap because it’s what they can afford. And what is convenient in a world where two parents are forced to work in order to barely scrape by. Until things change. People will keep eating cheap McDonald’s food packed with so much sodium it has a half-life.

 A sad, sad statement about the world we live in.

NOTE: I would like to add proudly that I have long ago convinced Julia that McDonald’s is disgusting. She refuses to eat it. And I’m okay with that.  I only hope I can be as persuasive when she’s seventeen and wants to get that tat of her boyfriend’s junk on her upper thigh.
