McDonalds posts first ever quarterly loss [cbsnews.com]

Same store sales are declining, they are closing up shops and pulling out of countries. They of course have McSpotlight to contend with in the number 2 spot on Google for McDonalds.

Reaching the saturation point - it may be a phenomenon more and more industries and companies face. Both people and companies can only consume so much stuff.

Good.

As someone who likes good quality, value for money food, and also as someone who cares about the enviroment, and lastly, as someone who is a vegitarian, I can only say:

I hope they go down the greasy tubes.

> I hope they go down the greasy tubes.

Ummm, they do, and have billions and billions of times
(or so say their signs)

Besides, most fast food places serve an important function. If not for them, who knows where the beef that wasn't cool enough to join the steak house fraternity might end up.

Dont care about the environment that much.
Love eating meat.
Not particularly concerned about the quality of the food i eat.

Still, hate big companies.

Hope they crash and burn. ;)

I hadnt realized that McD's was serving meat. The cardboard/soy product they sell surely cant be what you refer to? ;-)

As a preference, I choose Checkers when I want cheap meat.

Einstein predicted this would happen! ;)

If they contract enough will there be a Black Hole in Des Plaines, Illinois?

I share the thoughts of Saturday Night Live's Writers. [snltranscripts.jt.org]

It's a recession, and people will make more careful spending choices, or people realize that they made an investment in home appliances and should use them. :)

I'd have to dispute this statement:
(from the SNL script): "The Big N' Tasty Sandwich is food."

Hehehe.

Marriage ceremonies officiated by the Big N' Tasty are not recognized in any of the contiguous 48 states

And what are your comments on the above, eh? ;)

(from the SNL script):
The Big N' Tasty Sandwich is not to be used as an artificial heart.

Hehehe!

(BTW, that was one of the best bits I've seen on SNL in a long time.)

Doesn't matter to me... I can perform marriage ceremonies myself, so I wouldn't need the aid of a sandwich in the first place. ;)

Perhaps this is why Hawaii is the honeymoon capital of the Western World.

Ah,...
