DailyDirt: Grabbing A Burger

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Hamburgers are one of America's best-known foods, and McDonald's has popularized this kind of fast food all over the world. (The Economist even publishes its Big Mac Index to compare national economies according to the price of McD's iconic burgers.) Here are just a few more interesting tidbits with all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions -- all on a sesame seed bun. By the way, StumbleUpon can also recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    Pink Slime

    As someone who worked as a waiter and then in a meat market for several years, just because you don't taste something that has happened to your food sure doesn't mean that you don't mind it happening.

    "McDonald's stopped using pink slime in its burgers since about August of 2011. "

    Young boys farts will no longer burn with that green tinge after eating McDonalds.

    I think that link is an advertising campaign paid for by the White Meat Industry Consortium.
