Super-size that, sir?

Corporate Death Burger gets hit, hard. NYT yarn here. Stomach bomb, anyone?

    Premise of the ad is flawed.

    You could remove every fast food franchise on the planet and obesity would still be a problem. Look at the amount of crap that sits on store shelves.

    And I know more than a few rotund vegetarians.

    Sadly with 1 in 7 Americans living below the poverty line (family of four earning $400/week before tax), Mickey D’s is likely one of the only viable options.

    After watching the video, I had a frightening, Glenn Beck-like vision of what comes next: I saw, coming through the mist and over the hill, the Four Horowitz’ of the Apocalypse (actually three – the fourth was a Schmidt).

    Nostrils flaring, a subpoena in one hand and a meat cleaver in the other, they would make short work of these petulant herbivores swinging their stethoscopes wildly over their heads. The horror, the horror…

    The confusing message unfortunately makes this lose its effectiveness. Is it telling people to shun junk food, and McDonalds in particular, or to become vegetarians? Personally, I think McDonalds is evil (tastes like crap too), but I’m not a vegetarian, am in excellent shape. So, where does this leave someone like me? They should have stuck to the anti junk-food message.

    A family of four would spend at least $20 at McFlips for a Crappy Meal.

    While listening to Chopin’s Piano Sonata No 2, three Horowitz’ could cook a delicious meal for less than $20: Latkes, Keftes, Purim Ravioli, Halva as dessert.

    And Schmidt? Would contribute an extra treat: Apple Pancakes…

    Slaughter and starvation for death corporations.

    He’s awfully rosy pink for a dead dude.
