"A formal warning"
It sounded promising - like they were going to bring a sledgehammer down on Maccas - But with just a warning, it's turned out to be more of a quarter pounder...
Australia’s Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) has flogged McDonalds with lettuce leaves after the fast food concern didn’t properly think of the children with an online promotion that served up big helpings of spam emails. The case came about after McDonalds’ antipodean outpost cooked up happymeal.com.au and baked in a …
I have always stayed away from McD's and prefered the more refined taste of the king of burgers. But I am afraid the King decided to change the way he cooks his fries and they now are not what I would call a fry.
This has led to me eating cardboard burgers from McD's to get a "proper" fry, though TBH these are still only about 50% the taste of the old king fries.
I now really have no place to go, though the local kebab shop does some decent fries.
Why is MacDonalds advertising legal in the first place. Cigarettes and Alcohol are already banned why is MacDo not in the same categorie.
Obesity is already high up on the "Die young through heart disease", " Diabetes nightmare", "*Colestoral croaking" list .
The trap : Macdonalds is eaten as a snack but it contains as many, or more , calories than a full meal. It doesn't satisfy the appettite for more than an hour and the quantities of sugar create a buzz / withdrawal
symptom ( addiction).
Bad Parenting - some parents are lazy and employ the MacDo method. It avoids them from having to face the responsability of being a parent. Parenting is as much about "teaching" as it is about anything else.
Corporate Greed - MacDonalds have always geared their corporate strategy towards the easilly manipulated - the children.. ( same principals as religion)
PS : Most fast foods can fit into the same category - although not all.
Sometimes I'm tempted to eat McDonalds food. But then I think for a second about what it tastes like and what it actually feels like in my mouth. Remembering the tepid greasy texture and the taste of "vaguely sweet" is more than enough to put me off and also kill my appetite.
I do drink their coffee though.
Interesting is that McD did this in the first place. They were clearly being either seriously cynical, stupid or both.
It is pretty strong evidence against those who don't think that there's anything to worry about with lots of free-market deregulation. Give these big companies half a chance and they be send spam emails to kiddies.
