    Nasty. I only eat food, not chemicals, hormones and misc. animal body parts.


    This is also more accurate:

    actual big mac

    I refused to eat that crap even when I did eat meat. Go to a real restaurant or make your own if you're in the mood for a hamburger.

    If I have a big mac, it is because I don't have time to cook, or I just want one...because I do think they are yummy!

    What a sad state of affairs it is, when we need an executive chef to show us how to make Thousand Island dressing.
    _____________________________...
    LOL! And I just "love" this propaganda.

    He conveniently left out Soybean oil, high fructose corn syrup, sugar, corn syrup, salt, calcium chloride, xanthan gum, potassium sorbate (preservative), spice extractives, egg yolks, high fructose corn syrup, propylene glycol alginate, sodium benzoate (preservative), mustard bran, sugar, vegetable protein (hydrolyzed corn, soy and wheat), caramel color, soy lecithin, calcium disodium EDTA

    And I don't want to scare you and get started on the buns and what's in them and the beef. And that's not even real cheese...

    I already know how to make a better version at home starting with quality beef, lettuce and cheese. And instead of mayo, sweet pickle relish and yellow mustard and spices, just use thousand island dressing. It tastes similar but better!
