  • I believe they now have "Big Kids' meals" (unless that's Burger King I'm thinking of), which would include a double hamburger/double-cheeseburger, or probably more nuggets.

    As a simple, inexpensive way to make your child fatter and even more unhealthy... And of course if you order it and you're not a child, it's only slightly smaller than the adult versions (if at all).

  • Sorry, yarb. It's been a long time since I visited a McDonalds...

  • Actually Skip, I believe there's no such thing as a "Big Mac Happy Meal". A Happy Meal is aimed at children (though enjoyed by diners of all ages) and is typically available with hamburger, cheeseburger or Chicken McNuggets. The Big Mac can be purchased a la carte or as part of a Big Mac Meal.

  • How depressing, bilby. Add two all beef patties (god, I hate that word) and a drink (supersize!) and you've got yourself a Big Mac Happy Meal.

  • Iceberg lettuce is a tool of the devil.

  • Iceberg lettuce? I hope this is not being suggested as one of the ten most compelling reasons to eat more like a vegetarian. Now, a little endive salad with pear, walnuts and gorgonzola, that's a different matter entirely.

  • Wot no rutabaga?

    I notice that four of the five vegetables that Americans eat most are present in a burger and fries.

    And since when have "French fries" been a vegetable in their own right?

  • And did you know that vegetables are fresh fruits (Definition 2)? But sadly, they are only one vegetable.

  • I can cope with WeirdNet #1 and #3's love of disjunction, but 'numerous herbaceous plant'? Who else uses plant as a mass noun?

  • "The number-one reason for eating a plant-rich diet is that it tastes good. The five vegetables that Americans eat most are French fries, tomatoes (mostly as sauce or ketchup), onions, iceberg lettuce, and other potatoes."
