McDonald's fries are bad, m'kay?

McDonald's: Fries Have Potential Allergens - Yahoo! News: "'They should have disclosed that all along,' she said. 'They should never have been calling them gluten-free.'"

Hmm, how could McDonald's fries be bad for you? Let me count the ways...

1. They're gluten-free (not)
2. They're salt-free (not)
3. They taste good (well, better than Burger King and those paper fries at Wendys). Anything that tastes good is usually bad for you, except for FroYo.
4. They're cooked in beef-flavoured oil, or beef tallow, which is defined as solid fat extracted from the tissues and fatty deposits of animals, especially from suet (the fat of cattle and sheep). Pure tallow is white, odorless and tasteless; it consists chiefly of triglycerides of stearic, palmitic, and oleic acids. It is usually obtained commercially by heating suet under pressure in closed vessels. Tallow is used to make soap and candles. It was formerly in common use as a lubricant. Mmm mmm good!
5. They contain partially hydrogenated goodness.
6. They have a Health aspects title under Wikipedia.

Should have, would have, why are you complaining about McDonald's when you know that every year they need to find ways to cut costs. How do you cut costs? Replace whole foods with synthetic foods.

Stop complaining with your mouth and start complaining with your wallet. Spend what you would on fries on McDonald's charities. Or Roadkill candies. (they're a collector's item now!)

McDonald's Canada is 40 years old next year.
