The more I think about this story the more it makes me want to puke.

It reminds me of an episode of the American version of "The Jamie Oliver Food Revolution" where he shows little kids how chicken nuggets are made from chicken skin and carcass remains, and they still wanted to eat them.

It makes me wonder why McDonalds stopped using Mayor McCheese, HamBurgler, etc... Getting kids hooked young seems to have worked pretty well for McDonalds.

It worked for my generation, since it was the kids that got their parents to make the trip to McDs. I would guess now that those kids have grown up, the need to push the kids into lobbying for crap food isn't as profitable as maintaining the appeal to the original targets, but as more of a family restaurant with some healthy choices as well, so the parents gladly make trips. If the parents feel as good about it as the kids, then it would probably be more profitable all the way around.

If you're eating with a two year old, fast food is your best option.

Yeah me too. My gilrfriend who's asian has really opened my eyes to everything from Korean BBQ, Filipino food, Thai, Indian. Never really was into trying most of that food before. In fact i would say that Indian food is one of my favourite things to eat.

A lot of my friends have tried Shark Soup and said that it was the best thing they've ever eaten.
