Photo Of Grounded Golden Arches

Here is a picture I took in Cincinnati last month of the McDonald’s golden arches brought low.

This was in the East Walnut Hills neighborhood of Cincinnati.

Taking this picture, I imagined that the people of this community had finally become enraged they were being poisoned with the unhealthful Big Macs and McRibs sold at the McDonalds.

I imagined the people had come and torn down the golden arches.

Sadly, I don’t think this was the case.

Here is a review of the book Fast Food Nation which discusses the fast food industry.  It is not a fully flattering picture.

Here is the Fast Food Nutrition Explorer.  It seems that the Hardee’s 2/3 pound bacon Thickburger is not very good for you.

Here is the link to a picture I took last year of a giant Kentucky Fried Chicken bucket. This post gets hits every single day. I’m not sure why, but it does.

  1. Now you tell me that the Hardee’s 2/3 pound bacon Thickburger is not very good for you, thanks a lot.

    Was that sign removed for maintenance or was it taken down for good?

  2. I’m not sure about the sign. I was driving to catch a plane and had to keep moving. But that McDonalds has been there for years, so I’m sure a big McDonalds sign of one kind or another is still there.

  3. I just watched the movie that was based off of Fast Food Nation and I had already had trouble eating fast food burgers for the last year. Good thing I hardly ever eat hamburger out that much.

  5. Well—McDonalds will help anyone looking for a quicker route to the tomb. Katie might have the more solid idea here.
