    Thanks for your contribution

    Oddly enough, my daughters (3 and 4.5 years old) love McDonald's and frequently ask to go there, but have never requested vomit for dinner.

        Well, I guess I am the one who tolerates vomit well. I have a fondness, as do some others here (see http://www.roadfood.com/Forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=8130), for the one dollar double cheeseburger, particularly when the meat comes directly off the grill (and I always ask for it this way now) rather than out of a warming tray.

          I too, do eat the vomit they serve there.
          Thank you for telling me that is what I have been eating all these years.

            I watched that spot on the world news a couple of nights ago what got me was the story that followed about an article in this weeks JAMA about fat in your diet not being a contributing factor to cancer or heart disease, had to laugh at that one. The Doctor was from Harvard he must of spent too much time there in the 60s. Chow Jim

              In fact you can read the article on todays {2/10/06} MSN home page. So super size those fries for me. Chow Jim

                LOL, give the guy a break; it's GOOD vomit. It gives me heartburn, though. I used to like the breakfast burritos, but they've gotten skimpier lately. The breakfast homefries cakes are really sublime.

                  Nah, he earned the jabs.

                  All I did was post a news story, and you see what I got in return :-)

                    I had an egg mcmuffin and 2 hash brown's in honor of him this morning.
                    And thoroughly enjoyed it.

                        I hadn't been to Mickey D's in a while and this made me hungry for them so I went there yesterday for lunch. 2 double cheeseburgers with extra pickle (hot off the grill) medium fries and a large Diet Coke. If you didn't know Diet Coke neutralizes saturated and trans fats in the body. Trust me on this.

                          Oh well. I wish they would fry them like they did when I was in high school in the '70's...

                            T.J., I don't know what you were thinking. Posting about fast food in the fast food forum.
                            Thanks for the article.
