Really. I do. McDonals, KFC, Chick-Fil-A, Jack-in-the-Box, Burger King - I hate them all. Burger King is tolerable, barely, only beacuse they offer a veggie-burger.
And now, the lastest fast-food bandwagon they’ve all hopped on is salads. As reviewed in this Slate article, many fast food places are now offering salads. Great, right? I’m a vegetarian, I like salad, maybe I too can now join in having convienant, on-the-run food (other than fries)?
But no. Such dreams are not to be realized.
Every single salad - every fucking salad, emphasis on salad has chicken in it. Or bacon. I’ve had nightmares about the day they chop up a beef patty, put it on some lettuce, and call it a salad.
According to dictionary.com: sal·ad n.
A dish of raw leafy green vegetables, often tossed with pieces of other raw or cooked vegetables, fruit, cheese, or other ingredients and served with a dressing.
The course of a meal consisting of this dish
Note the “raw leafy green vegetables…fruit, cheese.” The main part of a salad is the vegetables. It is supposed to be VEGETABLES with maybe something else on it. Some shredded lettuce burried under a dead chicken is not a salad! It’s an abomination! Of the six hundred and twenty-seven (figure totally made up) fast-food restaurants nearby my residence, there is one chain - Wendy’s - where you can get, y’know, a salad. Lettuce, cucumber, tomato, onion, carrot, dressing. That is a salad. Chicken and bacon bits and dressing and oh yeah- some lettuce, too – that’s NOT A SALAD!
Curse you, evil empires of greasiness! Curse you!!
