You just can’t make this up! McDonalds has demanded a monopoly on the sale of “fries” during the Olympics. The ubiquitous chip, favourite snack of the nation, has been officially banned (unless sold with fish). Aside from the fact that chips are traditionally made from thick-cut slices of fresh potato – and, love them or hate them, bear little or no resemblance to the skinny little sticks of fried reconstituted potato-ish stuff McDonald’s serves up – how come any corporation was able to bully the organisers into such a ridiculous agreement?
Looks like the only chips at this year’s Olympics will be the kind people wear on their shoulders.
An apologetic explanatory leaflet from caterers sounds as though they know how this will pan (no pun intended) out:
"Please understand this is not the decision of the staff serving up your meals, who given the choice would gladly give it to you however they are not allowed to.... Please do not give the staff grief ... Everyone has the right to work in a non-abusive environment."

$1 Felony of Florida Man. A cup of soda valued at $1 could cost a Florida man $6,500 and 5 years in jail after refusing to pay the restaurant. Mark Abaire, 52, entered McDonald's in East Naples at around 10 p.m. and asked for a glass of water, but Abaire filled it with soda, valued at $1, at a fountain machine and sat outside the restaurant.

McDonald's said this week that it was no longer using the controversial ground beef additive known as "pink slime" in its hamburger recipe. Taco Bell and Burger King have also reportedly repudiated the "slime," which consists of spare beef trimmings that have been treated with ammonium hydroxide to make them safe and at least semi-palatable.
The move came after "Food Revolution" and "Naked Chef" star Jamie Oliver made public calls for chains to abandon the "slime," which has been manufactured by Beef Products Inc since 2001. Some are pointing to his advocacy as a central factor behind McDonald's decision.
Even if Oliver was the most prominent critic of "pink slime," though, he wasn't alone. The New York Times raised serious doubts about "pink slime" in a 2009 investigation of the product. It was also criticized in the 2010 documentary "Food Inc."
Part of the criticism stems from a general sense of disgust. People don't like hearing that they're eating spare trimmings of beef from strange parts of a cow. Nor, for that matter, do people like to hear that they're eating ammonia.
The USDA, for its part, approved of the ammoniated beef trimmings. In 2007, when it mandated increased testing for most ground beef, it specifically exempted "pink slime," even though the ammoniated beef comes from the parts of the cow most likely to harbor pathogens. The USDA argued that the beef's ammonia treatment would kill any bacteria lingering in the beef.
And there's some evidence that the USDA wasn't wrong to call "pink slime" safe. Indeed, a Jan. 9 editorial in Food Safety News argued that the public backlash against pink slime had more to do with fear-mongering on the part of figures like Oliver than with any rational assessment of the product itself.
That said, the Times found evidence that linked Beef Products' ammoniated beef to dozens of cases of salmonella and E. coli, so there's at least a fighting chance that it's less safe than conventional beef. Moreover, using "pink slime" only cuts the price of ground beef by about three cents a pound. Aren't you willing to pay less than a penny more for your quarter-pounder to avoid gambling with your health?McDonald's said this week that it was no longer using the controversial ground... more
The use of the paste first came to light when reality star and leading chef Jamie Oliver demonstrated the paste on his television show "Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution." Oliver noted that the paste is made of discarded beef cuts and treated with ammonium hydroxide, a process the USDA actually considers "generally safe."

London has a love-hate relationship with fast food. Public health campaigns and celebrity chefs vilify it and warn it could kill us; yet, as this film shows, we’ve never had it so good. This programme provides an unadulterated celebration of fast food, showing, with an emphasis on our lunches, how food and eating have evolved since the 1950s. Special emphasis is made on the evolution and importance of supermarkets. As Rob Lyons, author of Panic on a Plate, tells us, supermarkets have enabled more people to be fed more inexpensively, conveniently and well.London has a love-hate relationship with fast food.

A 22-year-old transgender woman, Chrissy Lee Polis, was brutally attacked by an 18-year-old woman and a 14-year-old girl at a suburban Baltimore McDonalds on April 18th. As reported in On Top Magazine, the two women are seen "repeatedly kicking, punching, and dragging the victim." While one McDonalds employee and another customer, an older woman, attempted to intervene, most of the witnesses stood "idly by and several men can be heard laughing in the background." One McDonalds worker videotaped the assault.

Two black females beating the hell out of a white patron, while several black employees stand by and watch. One black male manages to provide the facade of assistance to the white victim in this brutal attack.
At the end, the white victim is beaten until she has a seizure, at which point the camera operator warns the black female attackers to flee, because the police are on the way. Note: he makes sure to repeatedly tell the criminal attackers to flee, instead of keeping them there for the police to apprehend.

Here is another fine example of the trend of violence in fast food restaurants. Two females beating the hell out of a patron, while several employees stand by and watch. One male manages to provide the facade of assistance to the victim in this brutal attack.
The two females exit, then re-enter the store to continue the beating, until a an older woman attempts to stop them from dragging the victim outside into the parking lot. note: the male employees have disappeared from camera view, even though they are plenty well capable of stopping the attack.

If what I've over heard while not really listening can be trusted as complete and total fact, 97.3% of Americans are out of work. I, personally, work out of the Van making literally tens of people every day sort of almost chuckle, so as far as I'm concerned the unemployed can suck it. And apparently "insiders" agree with me. But all anyone seems to want to talk about is how bad the economy is and how no one is doing anything about it. And after seeing one company try to come out and at least look like it's trying to do something, I can understand why nobody else gives a shit.
See, Tuesday, McDonalds, "the Hamburger People"™ held what it called a "National Hiring Day" where they supposedly planned to hire 50,000 new workers, effectively adding to it's burger loving work force by 7 percent. Thousands of people showed up at McDonalds "Family Fun Food Centers and Play-stravaganza Activity Parks" © hoping to join Mayor McCheese's proud McFamily. Those struggling folks, among the 13 million other Americans desperate for work were naturally called by industry insiders, "suckers".
You see, this isn't about hiring people. If that's what you thought, some vaguely defined "economy industry insiders" would like to tell you about this job that they have for you called punch you in the face dummy. You see, this isn't about trying to put people to work, this is about McDonalds wanting to look like it... puts people to work...
But let's look at the facts, stupid poor moron! Here's what the article itself says:
"Though the 50,000 jobs are new, McDonald's usually staffs up for summer anyway, and it's constantly gaining and losing employees. It added 50,000 new workers in April last year, so Tuesday's blitz amounts to typical hiring, albeit compressed into a day."
So... yeah. This actual AP Business Writer is showing you morons what's really going on here. Sure these are "new" jobs, but, they would have hired them anyway. So why do you think you're so special McDonalds. Hiring people that you would have hired anyway and wanting people to know that you're hiring people. So what? You want a medal? Is that what you want Ronald? You want a big pretty medal proclaiming how awesome you are for putting 50,000 people to work that you would have put to work anyway? Well okay, you probably, might, could maybe deserve a medal. But... shut up!
The article continued:
"With 14,000 U.S. restaurants, Tuesday's planned additions amount to about three or four new employees per restaurant -- the amount that each store is probably usually looking for anyway, said Sara Senatore, an analyst at Sanford C. Bernstein."
Again McDonalds, why the fuck do you think you should get any attention for hiring people that you are probably usually looking for anyway? I mean, just because you probably need them, doesn't mean that you should do a huge nation wide one day hiring bonanza to actually let it be known that you probably need someone to fill these extra jobs. What are you trying to prove? That telling people you have jobs available might help to get those jobs filled? What a filthy, underhanded, self serving piece of shit ass cunt whore twat bitch mother licking chode kind of move that is McDonalds... You should be ashamed of all of those things I just called you. Shame!
The article also goes on to talk about the stigma attached to McDonalds workspersonship. Because you should be reminded that working at McDonalds is demeaning. It's below you. Do you really want to have to slink back to McDonalds in your desperate hour of need and work with all of those high school kids, reminding you of the failure that you are while trying to survive this hopefully temporary transition or hardship you find yourself in? Never mind the fact that the average age of a fast food worker has risen from 22 in the year 2000 to almost 30 years old today.
You know who wouldn't take a job at McDonalds? An asshole. So yeah, fuck McDonalds. Fuck McDonalds for hiring people, fuck McDonalds for telling people it's hiring people, and fuck McDonalds for screwing over all of it's grateful, appreciative to be given any opportunity to try to put food on the table, workers. The federal minimum wage right now is $7.25, McDonalds' Human Resources Vice President says that most of their franchises pay more than that and a full time manager can make anywhere from 32,000 to 50,000 a year. They also say that 30 percent of their executives and 70 percent of their managers started as little more than fry cooks and mop nudgers. But so what? Right economy snobs? You're still an executive at McDonalds. Right? You're still a manager at McDonalds. And those assholes make it a big deal that they're trying to hire tens of thousands of people to work for them for more than minimum wage with a seemingly reasonable amount of upward mobility like they're some kind of job creating burger barons! The fucking sack on this clown!
Thirteen million people are out of work. Mostly because of shit done to them by other companies, a batrillion times less honest in their motivations than this deliciously unhealthy food shilling man from McDonaldland. You've got a company that is trying to put people to work, people who need it, and yeah, they're doing it in a bit of a flashy way to maybe get a little attention for it and to try to mend a reputation that has been perpetuated by assholes lucky enough to not have to work there, and still you're going to bitch about it?
Shut up and eat your 6 piece McNuggets fried up for you by the 40 year old guy, happy as fuck to be given the opportunity to do ANYTHING to make some money and just hope like hell that you never find yourself in a position in life where you too might have to rely on the self serving gesture of a company that you despise for no good damned reason.
