McDonald's is a sponsor for the London Olympics—and a British doctors' group says that's sending the wrong message in a country with ballooning obesity.

Big Macs, fries and milkshakes will be part of McDonald's exclusively branded menu at the Olympics and the fast-food giant will soon be opening its largest franchise in the world, a two-story cathedral-like restaurant that seats 1,500 customers, at London's Olympic Park. McDonald's will be the only restaurateur allowed to sell brand-name food at the games and there will also be a separate McDonald's within the athletes' village—in addition to three others at the Olympic Park.

Alongside McDonald's, Coca-Cola has the exclusive right to sell non-alcoholic drinks at Olympic venues. Heineken has been named the games' official beer.

uhoh.gif those poor kids. That 'food' is pure garbage. I bet the British athletes won't be eating big macs.

hug.gif Hej Shadow! Can you imagine the money that changed hands to have only McDonnalds and Coke products at the Olympics?
What a money making scam, and all that paying BIG money to go somewhere that has to be the number one target for any potential terrorist attack, getting frisked, metal detectors and then any choice as to food and drink are removed.
How much would you pay to loose your dignity and have a really lousy time watching events that don't mean shït? Apparently a lot of people are prepared to pay it. gaah.gif
Stupid fuckers.

Hej Shadow hug.gif It's nasty 'food' for sure. It doesn't actually qualify as such in my book bored.gif

Quote:"Sponsors provide a huge amount of the funding required to stage the games," said a spokesman for the organizing committee in a statement. "Without our partners such as McDonald's, the games simply wouldn't happen."

"These brands are using the Olympics to be associated with medals and svelte, fit athletes," he said. "They don't want us to think of fat, unhealthy people when we think of their products."

Want the truth about McNasty's? Don't eat there for a while. Let's say a year. Then go eat there. Actually, don't. Take it home and eat it. Trust me. You don't want to be in public when it hits.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

That cartman line came from Steven Kings pet cemetary, Fred Gwin aka Herman Munster used it extensively in that flick.
