Advantages: potential find of deep-fried chicken head, ok, so the milkshakes are nice
Disadvantages: the burgers, the "fries", the staff
My opinion towards the international institution that is McDonalds (le MacDo in French slang, or Macky D's to the more yankified of my friends) can be summed up by this simple conversation I had with a friend one day:
Friend: "I want food"
Me: "Let's find somewhere to eat then"
Friend: "How about McDonald's?"
Me: "I thought you said you wanted food"
Which is the main point of my arguement: McDonalds DONT sell food, they sell temporary appetite repressors.
Never in my life have I felt like I've had a meal that satisfies both my nutritional, and hunger-orientated, needs after eating a meal from Ronald's "restaurant" - I have always wanted a proper meal later on.
Staying with nutrition for a moment, I think that if any scientific tests were made into the benifits of eating,for example, a Big Mac meal (Go Large!) then the white-coated boffins would surely deduce that the average person uses up more nutrients by the simple action of eating the meal than they would gain from the meal (except in the fat stakes of course).
Not only is the nutritional value extremely suspect, but the fact that the burgers are made from the final bits of leftovers found on the floor of the abbatoir, after all the better portions of meat have been sent off to be turned into catfood, is quite disturbing. Add to that the amount of water, flavourings, offal, sawdust, and faecal matter that can be found in your average quater-pounder, and you're looking at a serious health problem waiting to happen.
My final point is that the food doesnt even taste nice.
They frazzle their chips (or "fries" as they call them) to within a millimeter of their life (I would say "to an inch", but there isnt that much potato in them to start with), then coat them with salt, leave them to go cold, and then expect you to eat them. They put strange congealed green s
lices of snot in everything.
The chicken nuggets have beef-flavouring added because the level of actual meat in them is so low that people don't like them without it.
and the vegetarian burgers look like they have just been dug up from the garden and coated with breadcrumbs.
This overall standard of badness (or bad taste even) permeates throughout they companies structure. From the sweaty, snotty, spotty, ugly + miserable people they pay 10pence an hour to serve these culinary disasters to a brainwashed public, to the kindof marketing directors who a)decided to open a McDonalds next to the concentration camp at Dachau (im not making this up), and b)have the single most distubing advertising character in the history of the world (that clown is EVIL),the company is wrong in everything they do.
Oh, but then again their milkshakes are nice...... damn
