McDonalds Looks to Sell Quality McDonald's on Monday will kick off a two-day media event to tout the quality of its food and combat critics who say its burgers and fries are unhealthy.

In other news, an obviously scripted POTUS appearance was not scripted according to the Pentagon. You are not reading text on a screen. Black is white! Night is day! Etc.

  • "In addition, more than 10 percent of McDonald's beef is currently traceable back to the individual animal..." well....that's interesting... from now on I want the NAME of the little cow printed on every 10th burger I buy!
  • What does the scripted POTUS appearance have to do with hamburgers?
  • press articles that say what you know to be true is wrong.
  • In addition, more than 10 percent of McDonald's beef is currently traceable back to the individual animal By my rough calculations, that leaves about 90% for PURE PROFIT.
  • Fuck! /head explodes
  • How can they claim that their food is quality when they have it prepared by groups of bored, indolent spotty little herberts? The quality varies hugely from store to store because of the staff.
  • If you don't like it, why don't you go back to russia and gorge yourself on the people's yak burgers, quidnunc.
  • That's right, I didn't include a question mark BECAUSE YOU DON'T DESERVE A QUESTION MARK!!!!!!!;::!**& If you want me to use proper punctuation and speling your going to have too earn it!
  • Better that than the tyrannical taste of your North Korean Fried Chicken, Nick Dong Ill.
  • "Maybe if people think they have this terrific quality, then they'll forget about the calories and the fat," said Jack Trout, president of marketing strategy firm Trout & Partners. tour the Lopez Foods Inc. meat processing plant, where 2,000-pound containers of beef are fed into gigantic metal grinders before being pressed into patties, frozen and finally stacked into cardboard boxes.
  • Yak burgers am good eatin'.
  • Anyone up for a strawberry milkshake??
  • All hamburgers are bad for you. Anyone who doesn't know that already doesn't deserve to eat. I think they're just trying to show that theirs are subjected to higher quality standards than you'd find at most other burger joints.
  • For the record, my dong is very healthy.
  • "Oooh you like thickshake with that, peasant girl? Yeah, Nick Dong Ill, he give you good thickshake. You suck on this strOH WAIT A SECOND I AIN'T GETTING BANNED AGAIN. YOU JUST CALM DOWN THERE NICKY-D.
  • If you didn't want to get banned again, why did you dress so provocatively?
  • All hamburgers are bad for you. Not veggie burgers. Ha! I win! *endzone boogie*
  • You have a boogie hanging out of your endzone, there.
  • All hamburgers are bad for you. Not veggie burgers. Ha! I win! They stopped selling veggie burgers at McDonalds in Qu├ębec (don't know about ROC and US of A). So now I have to go to Burger King for my fake hamburger crave.
  • Q: I think it's ok. It's a McBoogie. What does the scripted POTUS appearance have to do with hamburgers? Tainted meat
  • Oh, snap!
  • Veggie burgers - that's just not right. Soya es crapo
  • McDonalds food is definitely yak-worthy.
  • mmmm tempeh.
  • ...run through metal detectors... New & improved McDonalds! Now 100% scrap-metal free!
  • We only use grade-A frogs in our burgers!
  • So glad to be a vegetarian...the only thing I eat at McDonalds would be the fries and the McFlurry... Mmm..carbs..
  • I don't know about the veggie burgers that are sold at places like McDs and the BK Lounge, but the premade ones I've purchased at grocery stores are every bit as full of fat and artificial crap as any fast food product.
  • "the only thing I eat at McDonalds would be the fries and the McFlurry..." All cooked in animal fat.
  • I second the thought of yak burgers. Mmmm...yakilicious. Also, is anyone else weirded out that the burgers are being sent through metal detectors? I mean, wtf, are today's burgers more prone to violence than the Quarter Pounders of yesteryear? Is one burger trying to be Bigger than all the other Macs? Are they packing heat before they reach the heat lamp? What gives??
  • New & improved McDonalds! Now 100% scrap-metal free! I was once served a burger from Hardees that had a nice pile of metal shavings on top of the patty... TETSUO!!!
  • Well, I'd agree that McDonald's hamburgers do have a certain quality.
  • According to Fast Food Nation, Mcdonalds learned their lesson some time back after Hindus complained about fries being cooked in beef fat. Now Mcdonalds uses vegetable oil.
  • i think that's only in India though.
  • No, they use veg oil in the States, too.
  • They still use beef fat to flavour their fries in the US and elsewhere, as I recall. They say it's a 'minimal amount'. I haven't eaten their food in a long time, so frankly I haven't paid attention.
  • I have an idea for a documentary film, which would document what happens to me as I eat nothing but beets for 30 days. What do you guys think?
  • I think your piss will scare you.
  • maybe you would develop a nice rosy glow
  • French Fries: Potatoes, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, natural flavor (beef source), dextrose, sodium acid pyrophosphate (to preserve natural color). Cooked in partially hydrogenated vegetable oils (may contain partially hydrogenated soybean oil and/or partially hydrogenated corn oil and/or partially hydrogenated canola oil and/or cottonseed oil and/or sunflower oil and/or corn oil). via
  • Wonder if the Hindu population know that. If cooking in beef fat was a problem, wouldn't that be too?
  • Ah - yes I went through the USA site - lemme try again through the India site. . . Fries: McDonald's world famous French Fries are produced only from the best quality potatoes. These potatoes are cut, blanched and processed on state of the art processing lines to ensure maximum retention of nutrients. These fries are cooked at the plant and our restaurants in 100 % vegetable cooking oil. The only thing we add to our fries is salt. Wow. I am seriously envious now. If I did go to McDonald's I'd be pissed that the US fries have so much crap in 'em. Check out the food index (veggie section)
  • Should have clarified: the Hindu population in non-Hindu countries. But yes, from what I can gather without being arsed to check it myself, NZ's Mcdonalds tastes better and is healthier than I remember USA Mcdonalds being.
  • Chewed gum found in Big Extra burger. "Concerned" about his health, rather than "suing McDonalds for a gazillion dollars". That's a Canadian for ye :)
