No doubt some McDonald’s execs are sweatin’ it, thanks to Consumer Reports’ recent revelation that very few consumers declare “i’m lovin’ it” while stuffing greasy, gray, ground-up cows down their gullets. McDonald’s limped (like one of those lame cows in a feedlot) into last place in the magazine’s survey ranking burgers from 18 different chains.
Seems both compassionate people and hamburger addicts are saying “i’m hatin’ it.” Of course, our disgust arises from the routine animal abuse carried out by McDonald’s suppliers, which break birds’ legs and wings and scald countless animals to death. Frankly, those actions, along with the corporation’s refusal to require its suppliers to use less cruel killing methods, are so shocking and sad that they make some folks break down and cry. And then they rise up and take action.
