Fancy smancy


McDonalds, that big  multi-national hamburger joint, is selling something a little bit fancy in Melbourne, and I guess the rest of Australia.  Guess what you get?  No, no, not a plastic toy.  You get a hamburger.  It’s cow meat, from an Angus cow by the sounds of it.  Apparently it’s fancy meat.  Let me get this right… for all these years, when McDonalds have been talking about only using the best Australian beef in their products they haven’t?

Let’s face it, there is nothing fancy about eating a burger at McDonalds.  It’s fast food.  Adding an extra sauce and telling me its Angus meat changes nothing.  It’s still a fast-food hamburger.  Oh, and BYO cutlery? It’s a laugh when you add that into the mix.  I’ve used knives and forks at some very unfancy restaurants over the years, I even use them at home, which is hardly ever fancy.   What a crock.

I know, I know, it’s suppose to be a bit of a ‘joke’.  It’s a humours ad, but it fails badly and it just simply annoys the crap out of me.  Now if they were selling alpaca meat….
