"When McDonald’s first started in 1955, its only hamburger weighed around 1.6 ounces; now, the largest hamburger patty weighs 8 ounces, an increase of 500 percent."

You can get their "southern-style" chicken sandwich (read: Chik-fil-a ripoff) for free or free with a drink or something today, if you are contemptuous of my culture. Don't compliment it with their sweet tea, it tastes like condescension.
