    #26 looks good ... the "Nurnburger". The rest are just more McCrapwiches.

    Some of it looks good. But I'm sure that, just like with the US McDonald's, the food you actually get looks very little like the pictures.

  6. Interesting that around the world, Rotten Ronnies offers some surprisingly healthy alternatives and vegetarian based offerings in places where certain meats are a cultural no-no. What do that say about us north americans?
     
  7. Some cultures never heard of hamburgers. But here we've been conditioned to eat them since the drive-ins of the 50's.

    Plus the good middleclass family in any Hollywood film or newsreel (be it old or new) always lives in a rancher with a two-car garage, lawn out back and a Barbecue.

    And on the weekends they always make burgers on their Barbecue (or steaks)

    And the whole family eats them.

    If they don't do that, they'll get their burger/meat-fix at McDonald's or someplace.

    Middleclass families copy what they see on film and in magazines.. and then they all get cancer from eating the burgers/steaks that are filled with nitrites from the sh*t in the Propane that's cooking them.

    That's the way we do things In North America.

    I don't need to be "conditioned" to eat meat cooked over an open flame. That's just meat the way nature intended.

    After looking at all 69 items, I can honestly say the only one I found appealing was the Turkish Breakfast Plate.

    There's an ad here for McDonalds Lobster Roll. It portrays a father and son, on a lobster boat pulling in the traps. Then it cuts to afterward with dad & son getting lobster rolls ... at McDonalds. I can tell you there ain't a lobsterman in New England who'd buy a lobster roll from McD's.
     
  14. But you are conditioned to buy a hamburger and fries at a fast food outlet.

    And older folks were conditioned to drive a vehicle to a drive-in to eat hamburgers.

    I don't know any other country where owning a Barbecue is a mainstay of life ( except maybe Australia & Canada).

    North Americans are meataholics.

    I still go to the drive-in to eat a hamburger. Fries? Yeah, but only if I can dip them in my chocolate malt.

    I ate the HECK out of some Micky D's shrimpburgers in Japan. Like, I think I might have done it twice one day.

    Well dang. I clicked it and the page comes up but sends me to some game site...... I remember when in the Army in Germany. We could get beer but no ketchup for our fries at McDonalds. The beer made up for it tho.
