    Wait, your saying fast food is good in Melbourne? :shock:
    Where were you living prior to Melbourne, Somalia or somewhere?

    They've changed their upsell from "Would you like fries with that?" to "Would you like a prostitute with that?"

    Well some people do, which is probably more prolific in the US...but I'm sure we have a good proportion here also.

    I Pretty much avoid macca's or hj's unless I'm out late and starving, don't mind the occasional subway though.

    One of my current favourite fast foods (using the term very loosely) atm is nando's, it's significantly healthier than McD's (esp if you swap the chips for grilled corn or a salad, having said that the peri-peri chips are full of awesome).

    I do eat mcdonalds more than most, but my job is 90% onsite at client locations, so im rarely anywhere i can take frozen food and successfully reheat it.

    What would be really cool would be a box, that plugs into your cigarette lighter and acts as a freezer from morning to lunch, then switch modes into a 100w (that's all most cars/small trucks electronics system can sustain) microwave oven, sure it'd take longer, but i think if someone made something like that it'd sell like a fatty big mac. (well... :).

    I eat it, but I prefer a little bit more of a variation.

    Eg, Chinese / Japanese / Kebabs / Subway / Sandwich / Big Mac / KFC / generic hot food from local shops, etc.

    And I think the price premium is worth it. Far better than Maccy Ds or any other multinational chain.

    Agreed - i'm rapidly going off them ($16-20 for a meal), save for chicken pieces which i turn into sandwitches back at work.

    Also Oporto is only slightly more than McDonalds/KFC, yet infinitely tastier!

    As Sesame Street puts it... fast food in many cases can be considered a "sometimes food".

    Meatball is the unhealthiest sub you can get at Sunway. Sorry.

    I havn't watched it in a while but i think due to some health regulation thing, cookie monster now says:

    "COOKIES ARE A SOMETIMES FOOD."

    Stupid i know.
