Forget selling arms. Apparently, peddling burgers is the world's most unethical pursuit

STEVE MAICH

Earlier this month, a British-based research firm called the Fraser Consultancy released a report on corporate ethics, naming McDonald's as the world's most unethical company in the eyes of the British public. Others named among the list of infamous corporate miscreants included Nike, Adidas, Coca-Cola, American Express and BP.

There was nary a surprise in the bunch.

Is it because they make cheap food for the common man? Not everyone can afford to eat at Swiss Chalet,you know.
 
I think not

Everybody bitches about McDonalds and yet the company manages to serve 50 million people worldwide everyday, amazing.

Seems to me that the last time I had a big meal(big mac, fries, and coke it was about nine dollars. You can get a quarter chicken meal at the Swiss Chalet for about seven fifty. Add the coke and they would be about the same price.

Anyone know how many cows have gone through the McDonalds worldwide? It almost doesn't seem possible to have enough cows on the planet to serve the number served.
 
I think not

McDonalds doesn't only serve beef, and I would imagine they aren't permitted to serve beef in India at all, yet they have several hundred restaurants.

I dislike MacDonalds only because it's so easy for me to become addicted. I still go there for shakes in the morning though.

They sure have a way of getting kids addicted. The Happy Meal and playground are heroin for children.

Gawd, he looks like the Michelin kid. Compare.

Isn't that frightening? I eat the damn things myself though I've cut it down to about once a month. Any more and I'd look just like those kids.

They do look like the michelin guy...

If I had kids that looked like that I would have them do 10 laps a day until they shed it off. That is terrible! What the hell are their parents thinking allowing their kids to be so overweight at such a young age?

oh dear. I have to admit, I get cravings for greasy burgers every now and again... but surely McGagnPuke's not entirely responsible for pics like the one you posted...

If we're completely honest, without a market, McD and all the other kazillion fast food outlets would go away.... we're keeping them around 'cause we continue to show up with our gullets agape en masse ...

it's horrid, yet as long as they exist, I'll guiltily find m'self at a 24 hr drive thru after a night out on the town... seems nuthin else will do... or is it that nuthin else is open at 3 a.m.

unless I start lookin like those 2 kids in the pic you posted #juan.... oh wait... maybe I should go weigh m'self....

I have noticed an effort by the fat food chains (ooops typo there = freudian slip?? ) to include more salads and healthier choices on their menus though.. but I doubt they'll ever lose the big mac, or my fave - the greasy quarter pounder w/cheese. oh how gross it is - terrible, loathsome even, yet I cannot step away!

It's a terrible affliction; too much food and too much TV, and from the looks of it, no exercise. When I was young, kids like that went through hell. The other kids would tease them unmercifully.

Juan I read an article in the Globe that warned that parents were going to out live their children if the obesity rate of said children isn't addressed. I've seen kids as young as eight that out weigh me.

MacDonalds sucks. Hamburger what hamburger, the hamburger paddy is half man made products-saw dust would be my guess.

A few years ago,

I was at a party and at some point a discussion started about how many cows had given their lives to provide meat for McDonald's hamburgers. I think we decided that there weren't enough cows in the world to make all the hamburgers McDonalds sold. Admittedly, we all had a few drinks but when you think about it, it makes sense. Normally, only the cheaper cuts of meat end up in the grinder. McDonalds sells forty million hamburgers a day so one would expect the cheaper cuts to become rare(no pun intended) A quick run through the supermarket tells us that there is no shortage of cheap cuts and no shortage of hambuger. Where does the hambuger beef come from. There is only one answer. McDonalds made a deal with aliens and got a machine to make hambuger from sawdust. Where's my tinfoil helmet?

I have always thought the meat was actually created from worm protein..you know that MickeyD's owns the largest worm growing facilities in the world,right?

Why would they do that? Worms are more expensive per pound, than beef.

I heard that McDonalds actually uses ground up mealworms in their hamburgers because mealworms have tons of protein and the easiest and cheapest to buy.

I hate to bring this up, (a terrible pun, given the subject matter)but on any given day in North America, there are approximately twenty five thousand missing people, and a similar number of missing pets, dogs, cats, canarys, etc. Where do they get all the meat for their burgers?
