too bad the dumb bitch doesnt realize that the parents are at fault for not taking away their video games and making them go play outside. if they want to try to regulate what we eat, then we might as well all go on wellfare. there are only certain things you can buy with food stamps.


i read that earlier and found it interesting regarding the 150% turnover rate. how the hell does that happen?

A friend of ours is a retired McDonalds exc. His retirement is $.02/ea for everything McD's sells on a bun in the U.S. McD's regrets very much making this deal with him many years ago.
