So blonde rascal and I were in McDonald's a few weeks ago. I should mention that I really don't like McD's and avoid it like the plague...but we all know every once in a while it is, well, unavoidable. Plus for blonde rascal it is like the crown jewel of chain restaurants and so it an insanely cool treat when we go.
On a side note I will say that their new country chicken sandwich, or whatever the name is, is really actually pretty good. It is an exact replica of the Chick-Fil-A sandwich.
While I was sitting there stuffing my face with the calorie ridden sandwich and b.r. was wallering around in the germ infested play place, a father and two tween boys came and sat at the booth next to ours. The boys sat down and the father was going to go place the order.
He asked the boys what they wanted and one boy said he wanted a Quarter Pounder.
To which the father in a very authoritative and reprimanding tone replied "You can't get that. Why would you want to clog up your arteries like that?"
My mouth, full of greasy chicken, fell open in utter disbelief.
If the artery health of your children is a large concern, then why would you even let your tires hit the parking lot at McDonald's?
Let's be honest, there is NOTHING on the menu at McDonald's that is even remotely health conscience. (I personally don't consider salads full of ice berg lettuce to be healthy) I think your wisest menu choice at McDonald's, with regard to the plaque in your arteries, would be...a napkin.
