i can't even remember the last time i've been to a mcdonald's. the moment i heard about the news articles saying that their new touch screens used for menus across many states were contaminated with all sorts of germs (including feces) i pretty much lost interest in going there again.

Want to know the most ironic and (quite frankly hilarious) thing ever? So how many of you here are familiar with Ray Kroc? For those who don't know who that is, Ray Kroc was a soulless humanity hating s*** guzzler whom in 1955, took the McDonald's restaurant from its founders and original owners Richard and Maurice McDonald and franchised it. Anyway, in memorial of him, in my hometown, there is actually a fitness center named after him. You actually read that right: The man who was responsible for fattening up 97.9% (and counting considering some parts of the 3rd world are discovering McDonald's for the first time) of the world has a fitness center named after him. That's like naming an animal shelter in memory of Jeffrey Dahmer or even naming a girl's school in memory of Elvis Presley or Chuck Berry. If we're going to name certain places after s****y people, why don't we name a high class all girl's school or a fancy hotel after Kid Rock when he dies? Or even a Preschool named after Ronald William Brown (Google him, I'm already saying more than I should)

There are two sides to every story. While I agree that the man as he has been portrayed in popular media is nobody I would want to associate with, we can't say we know for certain how things actually went down. So I'm not sure we're warranted in deeming him a monster or anything... certainly not on the level of a Jeffrey Dahmer.

A man says he has the world's oldest McDonald's burger.

Oh my. Oddest of all... look at it. It looks like it just came from McD's today.

If the pickle didn't disintegrate, I'd say it was a new burger.

McDonald's has gotten crazy expensive. In California, "value meals" are around $8! I remember when they used to be 3 bucks!



If we go (mainly for a happy meal) I try to Frakenstein a meal together starting with a $1 large drink/coffee then add on a sandwich or some nuggets. 



My theory is that it is actually cheaper to order individually and that "value meals" a trick to get you to spend more money.

That's more of a Value Meal than that expensive "Value Meal" you mentioned before. Isn't the point of a Value Meal to help people save money?

$8 bucks? That's stupid. Must be made with movie star cows.

I've been watching "The Founder". A provacative look at McDonald's beginnings.
