Mcdonalds is killing people! Put an end to this and boycott them immediately! If you don't believe me, ask your friends about the book "Chew on This" or look up what happened to Sam Frabrikant!

In 1968, my mother purchased for me my first Big Mac. It was wrapped in aluminium foil of color, and the twin burgers were wrapped with a cardboard band. I wonder what ever happened to that great taste and package. It was as if you were opening a present, not just a sandwich.
