 Fast Foods: Ads Vs. Reality
I really don't eat fast food anymore; not like I used to in my teens. I couldn't tell you the last time I've been to a McDonalds or Burger King or even KFC. It's been literally years. I DO however, still like the occasional pizza, so I haven't totally abandoned fast food :wink: .

It's been a long time, but I do remember what those burgers looked like as opposed to the picture of it when you order. If anyone's seen the movie "Falling Down" during the burger joint scene, knows what I mean. The picture shows a perfect, succulent and delicious looking burger, and what you get looks like someone stepped on it. I can't imagine it has changed much since my last time at McDonalds.

Anyways, during one of my Internet wanderings, I happen to find a website that illustrates this very real inequality for everyone's amusement.

Here a typical example:

Arby's Beef 'n' Cheddar

Or this:

Burger King Whopper

If you can stomach the sad reality of fast food, check out their website for alot more examples:
