    Fast food is totally unsafe……

    On the way to the fast food joint you get robbed/mugged/wounded/killed because only bad element eat such cheap food….bums..lowerclass…etc….

    And if you actually make it to joint, and eat the stuff, you face artery disease, heart attack, obesity, and when you come out to go home, you face being mugged,carjacked, wounded/killed again….so whats the point of getting fast food….
    and if you order out, you also might get robbed, killed…etc..

    So do fast food crimes get tried in food court?
    Sorry, sorry.. yes I know.
    Also am I the only one that thinks that the KFC guy sounds like a total crackhead? I just remember watching supersize me and how he drew paralels between drugs and fast food.
