McDonald's wants to own the rights to how a sandwich is made.

The fast-food chain has applied for a patent relating to the 'method and apparatus' used to prepare the snack.

The burger company says owning the 'intellectual property rights' would help its hot deli sandwiches look and taste the same at all of its restaurants.

One must logically assume then that the next step would be to patent the taste of cardboard and crap.

An art exhibit in Tennessee featured 40 American flags deep-fried in peanut oil, egg batter, flour, and black pepper. Though the flags contained more fiber and nutrients than your average deep-fried Snickers bar, deep-fried Coke, or deep-fried bacon cheeseburger, the director of the museum hosting the exhibit closed it less than 24 hours after it opened, citing the likelihood that it might cause "incendiary reactions."

A concessionaire has developed a gooey Coke-battered ball coated with Coke syrup and it's sweeping the state fair circuit. The "treat" has been a big hit at every fair it's been to so far and joins the ranks of such gastronomical wonders as fried pickles, twinkies, and PB&J's.

A fast-food worker in Louisiana shares with the world what she and her co-workers think of the people who make her paycheck possible.

Some of these rules are perfectly reasonable. (Why yes, you should order things that are available at McDonald's when dining at McDonald's, and you should be fully clothed while patronizing the drive-through.) Still, I'd have to say that her spelling, grammar, and disdain for punctuation alone (I have not altered her text in any way) may give us some clues as to why her career seems to be stalled in the drive-through lane. Her extreme devotion to customer service tells me that she'll go far; expect to run into her down at the Deparment of Motor Vehicles when she gets a bit older and wants a job with health benefits.

Researchers say that just drinking one extra soft drink per day can pack on 15 pounds of unsightly fat in a year. Since Americans are drinking more of these beverages than ever before, they may have found one of the primary causes of the current obesity epidemic.

Chicago Bans Foie Gras

Because all crime has been eradicated, streets are clean and well-maintained, schools are top-notch, and politics are honorable and above-board, the Chicago City Council has banned the sale of foie gras by restaurants and retailers.

Foie gras is being banned because to make it, geese are cruelly force-fed until their livers swell up to 10 times their normal size. This is so much worse than penning baby cows up so that they can't move and making them anemic so they'll make the tenderest, most delicious veal, or cutting off chickens' beaks so they won't peck each other to death in their overcrowded conditions. Yep, the other factory farming processes (probably invented in Chicago, the meat-packing capitol of the country) are so kind and humane, we don't have to worry at all about eating what they produce.

The presence of those substances can cause allergic or other medical reactions in food-sensitive consumers.

McDonalds Pulls Insulting Chinese TV Ad

[Junk Food]
A McDonald's television ad that showed a Chinese man begging for fast food has been taken off the air in China following complaints. In a statement faxed to local media on Wednesday, McDonald's defended the ad as an attempt at humor. Reports said viewers complained that the ad's depiction of a middle-aged man on his knees begging for a discount was disturbing because Chinese consider such an act a humiliating indignity.

No word yet, if being seen eating a filet-o-fish sandwich is considered even more of an indignity.
