For dinner tonight I had mac-n-cheese and washed it down with an Orange Crush.
And it was damn good.
So I am not really one to criticize anyone’s diet. And I do respect the work nutritionists do in gathering evidence toward a better diet. I get it. There has been plenty of research done on how horrible fast food is for you. An entire documentary earned plenty of accolades a few years ago based on McDonald’s:
A fantastic film if you have never seen it. Makes you rethink eating fast food. And well, then I saw this:
Like, who does this? Really? Who in the hell eats lunch at the local Burger King or Mickey D’s and thinks, hmmm. I am going to leave a Happy Meal sitting on a shelf in my house and see what happens after a year. This woman admits:
I had the windows open many times, but flies and other insects just ignored the Happy Meal.
How is it that this woman is worried about the preservatives in fast food yet she doesn’t see a problem in leaving food “uncovered on a shelf at her home near Denver, Colorado, to see what would happen.” It didn’t occur to her that the drawing of rodents or flies would be just as, if not more dangerous? She says flies never went near it, but…why risk it?
Can you just imagine the whole family sitting around the table at Thanksgiving and Grandma heads to the pantry to get the forgotten can of crushed cranberries and she finds it…behind the small fries?
Like, really. Who does this?
[For the record, I would totally eat those fries, a year old or not.]
