McDonald's casts healthiest-looking kid on the planet for complete bullshit "nutrition" ad.

(click ad to read fat lie on t-shirt)
Actually, technically, legally, I guess it's not a lie. The copy reads "you might be surprised to learn who..." It doesn't say that the "who" is in fact McDonald's. Though...Mickey D's does think about children's nutrition even more than the parents—about how little healthy nutrition is in their Happy (Fatty) Meals and Mighty (Fat) Kid's Meals. Just about the most bald-faced, undisguised lie I've come across.

previously in fast food:
1. Spider-Man 3™ cheeseburger.
2. America will most definitely not feel like chicken tonight.
3. Ronald is DEAD.

They think about it, sure. They just don't do anything about it, or care.

I'd say they do think about it, EXACTLY as much as the parents who let their kids eat at Ronald's pre-diabetic buffet: very little.

So the shirt is quite accurate.

I want a Happy Meal waa.

And ... this could be a Sponsor a Child ad, you know ... he's ethnic enough, or whatever.

But yay McD's and scary John Gacy-ish clowns and big purple rubberish Barney monsters, hooray!

McDonalds is my favorite fast food restaurant. Everything tastes so delicious. However, they claim it to be unhealthy. Almost all the fast food restaurants serve unhealthy food. On the www.pissedconsumer.com I found out very much information about the company. Besides, the customers’ reviews are of a great use. However, your blog is also very informative, try to browse www.pissedconsumer.com. There you may also share your opinion.
