Don’t Supersize Me

So McDonalds is discontinuing the Super Size option. (story
here) So you mean to tell me that no longer will you be allowed to spend an extra $.39 for about 10 more french fries and a few more ounces of watered down Coke? Wow….just watch the waist lines of America change overnight! Wowzers! Talk about an empty gesture. McDonalds, whose sales have been sagging up until the latest quarter, is just trying to buy themselves some free good publicity. There are far more things wrong with the eating habits of this country than just “Super Sizing” your meal. Shame on McDonalds for such a empty gesture, and shame on the media for jumping at it like trained seals.
