burger king is even more disgusting than mcdonalds.

I dunno, Mc D's consitently has pretty good fries. Wendy's fries are either really good(right out of the frier) or not bad(been sitting around for an hour).

control....metabolism...the food still blows

same goes for burger king, and wendys.

i can stand chicken nuggets at wendys, or maybe chicken strips from bojangles if i *really* have to eat and im out....but thats depending on how hungry i am and how long itll be before i go home.

Nothing, and I mean nothing, compares to Braum's old style crinkle fries. I could eat those exclusively and never get tired of them.

That will be a sad, sad day.

:( :( :(

Edit:

By the way:

"Yeah, obesity is a consideration," said Adams, who operates Franchise Equity Group. "But health is just a component of this. The menu's gotten too broad and the kitchens are unmanageable with all the new products.

"This is also an effort to speed up McDonald's service," he said. "The less buttons on the cash register, the more efficient the crew people can be."
What a load of crap that is. :p

I wouldn't be surprised if they get rid of the SuperSize name, but bump everything up a notch. So a medium will be called a small, a large will be called a medium, and a supersize will be called a large.

SOOOOOOEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

They have done something like this before. What is now the medium size fry and drink used to be the large size. I think they made this change back in the mid 80s. Back when I worked at McDonalds, they didn't have value meals.

As much as I hate mcdonalds, it's not their fault that fat bastards eat there all the time. I'm still going to laugh at the fatty mcfattersons.

Agreed. It's not McD's responsibility to cater to the fatarses of the world. If you're FAT, stop going to McD's ya dumbass!!! Eat a fuggin' salad and leave the rest of us who can control ourselves to enjoy SS meals.

I still have trouble blaming McDonalds for people being overweight.

Have they lost a "McDonalds made me eat too much of their food and not exercise enough" suits?
