I marvel at how McDonalds has infiltrated our entire world. A hamburger here tastes exactly the same in China or some around the world place.
Makes you wonder doesn't it?
I love how she makes this part out to be some sort of amazing revelation. THAT'S THE WHOLE POINT! McDonald's business plan is consistency! The point is if you're anywhere in the world, and not feeling adventurous enough, you can always come back to a McDonald's hamburger and have it be the same familiar commodity when you're back home. That's the essence of globalization, and whether it's a good thing or bad thing is a subject for another debate.
So a hamburger has no nutritional value and looks the same as it did 12 years ago. Great. I'm going to go on the Hollywood Cookie Diet and stuff my face with chocolate-chip cookies too. Nobody's pretending it's healthy, not even McDonald's. It's a pretty ridiculous straw-man argument that doesn't accomplish anything.
Proudly flaunting your personal vendettas against big corporations is the trendy thing to do, anyway. You think the CEO is going to give a damn that you haven't touched a Big Mac in 5 years?
P.S.: this reminds me of a time when my brothers were cleaning our fraternity house and discovered an unopen can of Coors Light that had been sitting around since 2001. So we did the only obvious thing at this point: we placed our bets then drank it. :lol: To this day nobody's died yet. Hell, I'll eat that 12-year old burger if you guys are willing to put some cash on the line!
