It's called fast food because

...they make it really fast! And cruddy. I praise Ford for the assembly line and all of its ramifications!

This I found to be a little amusing. It depicts food products alongside the versions of the product marketing departments see with the aid of their 'Market-O-Vision Distortion Field'. Found via Boing Boing. Stuff NEVER looks as good as it does on the packaging, but man, the Big Mac and the Whopper sure look like they've been sweltering for a while. Makes you think twice about buying into the pictures and eating this cra... Mmm... Big Mac. Mmm... hungry. They look so succulent.

Occasionally I crave this stuff, but I think I just lost my appetite! This is as disturbing as those celebs without makeup pictures, heh.

Funny thing is, that's how they really look, yet we've grown so accustomed to it we don't notice the disparity anymore!

Anyway, I'll soon forget about this and munch on them again... probably sooner than I imagine!

I don't know man, I think the author picked the worst pictures to post, because the fast food I get, although not looking perfect, have never looked as dejected and soggy as those!

So yeah, I got my appetite back too. :>
