Stop, McDonalds. Just Stop.
 by Fëanor

The more recent McDonalds advertising seems to be trying to convince us that it is a hip, cool restaurant where hip, cool, young people come to smile prettily at each other, and to enjoy healthy treats like salads, oatmeal, fruit smoothies, and the like.

Does anybody actually believe this about McDonalds, besides perhaps isolated tribesmen who have never seen or heard about the place before? McDonalds is where you go when you are desperate and you need some greasy garbage that you can stuff down your food hole RIGHT NOW, to reward yourself for being good, punish yourself for being awful, or just because there are literally no other options.

Embrace what you are, McDonalds! Don't try to be something else. You fill an important niche! An important, horrible, desperate niche.

UPDATE: I thought it only right I compose a follow-up post containing some alternative, honest McDonalds ads.
