100% Tender, 0% Nutritious

Tuesday, 25 July 2006 at 5:00 am Pacific USA Time.

McDonalds has new commercials aimed at Moms to say that their food is healthy for kids.

What? Is this legal? Class action suit, anybody?

The Mom is telling her daughter that what goes in your tummy is more important than what goes on it (the girl is playing dress-up). So she takes her to McDonalds for, what my Mom called when we were little, Rubber McNuggets.

They show the daughter happily eating them, and on the screen next to her, it says, "100% tender." The next screen says, "Made with white meat."

Some white meat? Bits? White meat of what animal? The best promise and guarantee you can give us is that they’re 100% tender? Well sure, you’ve shot them up with Lord knows what. The rest is mysterious mystery "meat."

Let’s not pretend that we go to McDonalds for nutrition. I can’t decide which needs to change first: their deceptive advertising or their poisonous "food."

    This made me laugh. I saw an icon the other day that said something to the effect of…”Going to McDonald’s for a healthy salad is like going to crackhouse for vitamins” It made me laugh.
