    Was the big mac analysis from the food nazis or as Banksie calls it “the well known scottish family restaurant chain” in house laboratory.

    And if anyone wanted to see how the much the big mac’s artery clogging ability changes from country to country: someone on Wikipedia has the answer


  4. Gravedodger says:

    Gee thanks for that David, laid out like that it is soooo graphic but is it better to die skinny or fat. Not that many joggers are smiling but most people eating a BK, a Big Mac, a Cream Freeze or an Ice Cream look momentarily happy.
    I will repeat a little anecdote from my decadent past. I worked in Real Estate for a time in a successful move to save our financial bacon and was in competition with an opposition guy who was a heavy smoker. He said to me at an industry xmas function that he often saw me eating a cream freeze to which my reply was, “I have a better chance to die smiling”. Alas Pat is no longer with us as he tragically suffered a stress related heart attack in the Canary Islands.
    My recent annual health check resulted in my Dr telling me I was going to die but he didn’t know what was going to kill me,,,,,yet.

    How lovely, flowers. You have no idea how long it is since anyone sent me (even electronically/metaphorically) flowers. I’m chuffed.
