My Rant

My rant for the night:

I have to say the "health police" suck. Today I went to McDonald's and ordered a Happy Meal at lunch. Yes, I still order Happy Meals because they are a smaller portion and therefore I find some strange way to squeeze them into my diet and allow me to feed my occasional cravings while still trying to maintain some sensible weight. They are also fairly cheap and we are on a bit of a budget.

Anyhow, I ordered my Happy Meal and took it back to work. When I went to eat it, I found the usual little cheeseburger and drink, but when I went to dig out the fries I was taken back. My fries were this t-tiny little miniature version of the large red fry box. I have to admit it was adorably cute, but rather pointless. I was fully expecting at least my "small" fry. I found instead something that was about a quarter of the size of the normal small fry. I also found, to my annoyance, a package of apples. I didn't ask for t-tiny fry and apples.

If had I wanted apples, I would have asked for them. Now, don't get me wrong, I eat my fair share of fruit. I am probably one of the only people in the world who grabs bananas and fruit mixes at 7-Eleven, but when I want to treat myself, I go for a nice Happy Meal (moderate, but still good) to appease my cravings... why does the health police get to decide what I get? And even more so, why do they get to decide what I feed my children? Isn't that my right to decide?

What happen to America.. home of the free? Where's my freedom of choice? Has McDonald's gone communist? WHERE IS MY FREAKIN' HAPPY MEAL?!?!
