Actually McDonalds has lawsuits filed against them all the time. I know a lawyer who works for McDonalds and there's hundreds of suits per year. If I get off on a rant here...good. I love how when anything goes wrong, it's gotta be someone else's fault. I'm not fat because I ate too much and couldn't stay away, but because you didn't tell me not to eat so much. Think about it. 100 years ago if someone tried to sue a company because they didn't put a fat disclaimer on their food. "Warning...eating too much of this will make you fat." Holy crap! Eating too much of anything will make you fat. It's no secret! And if there are stupid people out there who can't figure out that too much smoking, drink, eating, etc...is bad for them...fuck'em! Survival of the "I'm not a complete moron" has to play into the picture somewhere. If you weigh 300 pounds and try to sue someone for it, I would jump on top of you and beat you senseless to try and knock some back into you. Wanna sue someone? Sue your parents for raising such a helpless person. Sue the state for not properly educating you if you had no parents! Let me tell you...if I was the judge in the court I would look and say. "Uh yea, you're an idiot. Food makes you fat if you eat too much. Maybe you should have thought about that before shoving it down your throat faster than some freshman in college chugging a beer at a party to impress some ugly girl. Now get out of my court room you stupid stupid man and take your insane lawyer with you, NEXT CASE!"
Ok, I feel better now. Seriously though, we're a country that will not admit to anything being our fault. Not as individuals, and certainly not as a country. I'm shocked that the news reporters didn't bust out laughing while reading that story on air! With that being said I think I'm gonna go grab a quad-cheeseburger with the "super-size oh my god I need a dump truck" size fries and a gallon of cola to wash it down...oh and a small frosty. Should hold me over till lunch.
