Even McDonald's doesn't think you should eat McDonald's all the time. It says so on their employee website. Well, it did, until word got out about it and the website was taken down.
McResourceLine.com, an internal site for employees, warned employees to be cautious of fast food. The website said, "Fast foods are quick, reasonably priced, and readily available alternatives to home cooking. While convenience and inexpensive for a busy lifestyle, fast foods are typically high in calories, fat saturated fat, sugar and salt."
All true. Just a little strange hearing it from the mother of all fast food restaurants.
McDonald's is facing criticism these days with many employees going on strike seeking hire wages. This website gaffe just fans the flames of controversy.
So...McDonald's knows it's bad for people. We know it's bad for us. Now that we're all on the same page, CAN WE GO BACK TO EATING?
McDonalds is so unhealthy but desperate times call for a bacon cheese burger and a large fry. #guiltytruth

Dear McDonalds cashier, don’t give me that look. There’s no age limit on a happy meal. Sincerely, don’t forget the toy.
