I recently watched and interesting segment from the U.K, 'Tonight with Trevor Mcdonald, The Obesity Timebomb' which had some very disturbing facts about obesity not only throughout the U.S but throughout the U.K as well as effects Fast Food has on your body that even I didn't know. Facts that disturbed me rather roughly and I'm someone who has seen Super Size Me through several times..
Of course given the nature of Fast Food and the fact that Fast Food chains make it a point to create increasingly disturbing artery clogging monstrosities I don't suppose that the fact that there are more disturbing facts out there about Fast Food that even I don't know should really surprise me.. Given the nature of Fast Food there's probably tons we don't know yet about the negative health-effects of it all..
One of the facts that was gone over was actually the fact that a single day worth of Fast Food actually has a noticeable and disturbing effect on your arteries, blood pressure and cholesterol. Mind you we're not talking a week, half a week or even two days, we're talking a single fucking day. It's not lasting damage, no.. But if a single day worth of Fast Food really does something noticeable and negative to your body on such a level is it any surprise the guy in Super Size Me actually found that Fast Food was literally pickling his liver?
I complain because I care mind you, I care about the world and the people in it and I hate to see people shovel shit in their mouths and do harm to their bodies.. As a person I find it visually repulsive and as a Buddhist I find it morally offensive. The body is a Temple, it shouldn't be treated like a garbage dump.. Perhaps this article will amuse, perhaps it will get some chuckles and moments where jaws drop but most of all I hope that perhaps this will make people think and reconsider.. Maybe it will help someone towards a healthier alternative.. (IE - Not Fast Food!)
Here be horrors. Fast Food Horrors.
Hungry Jacks Japan Pizza Burger:
This thing scares me because of it's stats which are as follows..
144 g Fat, 59 g Saturated Fat
It also costs the equivalent of $13.00USD which is even more frightening because it's so damned accessible, that's one of the problems isn't it? Availability of these sorts of food, that's insane. Why make something like this so incredibly available? I guess we're hoping people exhibit self-control but.. Yeah.. HAHAHA! Long shot much?
I also have a problem with any burger that looks like I could feasibly and easily damage a fucking car with it. I seriously believe I could take someones goddamn window out or maybe even bust the rim-caps off their car and fucking dent the shit out of it with this vicious bastard. Never mind what I could do to a human being with one.
Mackers Japan Grand Canyon Burger:
This horrifying motherfucker consists of enough shit to erupt your arteries into screaming bloody masses of terror in a single bite. A two story burger sporting an oversized Meat Patty, Mozzarella Cheese, Steak Sauce and all topped by a Fried Egg and Cheddar Cheese.. I say Fried Egg lightly because anything designated 'Egg' coming out of Mackers is questionably Egg-like at best.
Extra frightening as it is the caloric content of this beast cannot be found online and I doubt that Mackers would be quick to divulge the information if it were requested. The fact that you'd be eating one of these blindly to whatever you were taking in scares me goddamned shitless, this is unnatural and wrong.. Just.. Wow.. 'Grand Canyon' huh, guys? Well if you eat one of these you might be better off throwing yourself off the Grand Canyon.
Mackers Austria McRibster:
Yes and it's Austria this time that we're talking about that has introduced something even more unhealthy than the already unhealthy McRib was to begin with.. I mean a glob of questionable 'rib meat' (which is gray by the way. Ew.) slathered in 'BBQ Sauce' and encased by two poppy seed buns (that are quite disgusting when all is said and done) with all the condiments and crap to go along with.. They then took it, added more shit to it and deep fried the motherfucker to boot.
Holy motherfucking hell. What the shit, Mackers?
You deep fried a fucking McRib and added bacon to it. You sons of bitches.
There's no fat or calorie specs available on this yet either not that this is too surprising given the apparent trend. Sufficed to say this little fucker probably bombs your arteries like no ones business, you eat one? Enjoy the HNNNRRRHHRRRRGGGGRR!
James was really into this one which was great because I was super proud of it, according to him it was 'damn good'
