would you like fries with that?

July 6, 2012

i believe in every person thinking for himself.  didn’t the scarecrow in the wizard of oz go searching for a brain for this very reason?  seems as though london olympic organizers don’t believe in the same.  and that’s why they’re considering severing their partnership with mcdonald’s and coca-cola, the sole purveyors of food and non-alcoholic beverages at this year’s olympic games.  olympic officials don’t believe in accepting sponsorships from companies that produce high calorie, “unhealthy” food choices.  so now, only a month before the games, they’re contemplating kicking their sponsors to the curb.

i grew up going to church every sunday and then making a stop at the local mcdonald’s for lunch before the packer game.  i took ice skating lessons and enjoyed a family pancake breakfast for dinner at the mcdonald’s across the street.  i would kill for a mcd’s french fry, smothered in ketchup.  i’ve eaten my fair share of high calorie, “unhealthy” food.  but i would not consider myself unhealthy.

it’s all about choices.  choices you make with that brain inside your head.  choices you make for your body, for your life, for your pie hole.  the world is full of choices.  and i don’t want the london olympic committee making them for me.
