Like LoneStar said earlier, what if he’d eaten only cheesesteaks? It seems to me the guy is picking on McDonald’s when he could just as easily have screwed himself up eating only, say, lettuce. It would have been a different kind of screw up, but dangerous nonetheless. It’s more an argument in favor of a healthy, balanced diet than anything else. To slant it against the worlds best-known hamburger chain is just pseudo-blackmail, if you ask me. Had he eaten nothing but prime rib and tried to get an interview with the head of the Beef Council, they probably would have shot him down, too.
I think we all experienced the same thing in the 18-24 age group. It was right after my 25th birthday that I realized I was actually gaining weight from eating so much garbage. Of course, it was nearly another ten years before I actually did anything about it! [:I]
