Give Up, We're Surrounded!

No matter where you are in the USA, you're never more than 145 miles from a McDonalds!

The McD's is how I know when it's time to turn down my street...going north on Brooks, take a right at McD's...we are at the end on the right.

I remember when there was a sign on the "Golden Arches" that said "Over one million burgers served."

Only two hours away from pseudofood...and civilization if you are lost...

That's a mighty big black hole hanging close to where I live...

I hate that much of the world thinks that's the best we have to offer.

They are becoming feeding stations instead of restaurants.

The dollar menu is making it an alternative to the conventional idea of grocery shopping and cooking at home.

I am not sure if it is sad or scary or both!

You deserve a break today!

it's amazing that people want to eat there with all of those bright lights.


it's good to know, though. even if i was in a plane that crashed in the most remote region of the u.s., i would only have to hike 145 miles to a mickey d's.

i'd just follow the bright light, lol.
