Fast food…slowly is making the world a big pile of crap. I want to reflect the absurdity of our cultures need for that quick fix with this theme. My first image represents my interpretation of how we’re fed this waste with annoying marketing strategies and threat of value. It troubles me that most of the population has let it self be lead into the line at your local Mc Donald’s drive thru for a late night snack or a quick bite from the daily grind. I just want to have fun with this topic a bit…

Fast Food Invasion

Why exactly has a vast portion of the North American population become obsessed with Fast Foods? Could it be the luxurious idea of food being drenched in vats of hot boiling animal lard? Or maybe knowing pimple faced teenagers are completely in charge of, and capable of, sabotaging your greasy meal? Whatever the reason may be, it is quite evident that Fast Food chains have taken North America by storm with it’s fast, convenient, and lardaceous products. Let us begin with those tiny, crispy, delicious entities we call french fries. That hot explosion of salty grease flavour on our tongues makes any grease fans knees buckle. French fries by definition are “strips of potato fried in deep fat,” but a closer look at these potato strips and you’ll find, in most chains, there’s a little potato and a bucket load of fat, with the exception of Harveys of course.

It seems all chains have what they call a”secret sauce.” The ingredients of this “secret sauce” are most likely lard, a little bit more lard, and a touch more lard for measure adding a dash of flavour to fool the customers.

A new aspect of the Fast Food experience includes the option of healthy meals. All that needs to be said about this is, if someone is really planning on turning a new leaf and becoming a healthy eater, exactly why would they venture into the grease packed Fast Food chains to begin with?

Now if all this talk about fatty foods isn’t enough, the chains have also decided that bigger is better. Offering drinks big enough to keep you running to the restroom at least 6 six times, an order of immense fries, and the cholesterol-filled burger of your choice.

The only conclusive answer to America’s love of fatty foods is they’re either morons, as depicted by those who sue un-named chains because it, “Made me fat!” or simply because that vile, oil dripping, fat inducing meal, tastes so darn good.

inman

Ohso, I asked for this paper to be double spaced! ;D

Interesting theme guys. Jel3 where can I learn about franchising the Jel3’s Place brand?

Simply send five thousand dallors to the address on the back care of “not gonna see this money again”….

I like the idea of a taco added on to a burger & freedom fries meal. McDoodles take note.

bharper

super dupa’ work jel. this is funny stuff… makes me hungry.. i think fast food should only be fed to those of us with the metabolism to handle it.. otherwise, it can do such horrible things..

ohsoquiet

sorry mr. inman sir my dog ate the double spaced copy.

This image I did all in illustrator. I just wanted to make note of how much food people actually think they need to consume in one meal and in just five minutes I must add. I also tried to make fun of people that drive big SUV’s and drink 64oz drinks (see the note in the image about SUV’s).

I did this at work so my creative process was a little cramped. However, I still enjoy the image.

That sounds like a good deal and all, but I’m hittin up Jel3’s Place™. For less loot you get basically the same stuff, BUT you also get a Sundae Surprise™ AND a Krunchy Taco™. Damn, now thats value!

(infopost paid for by Jel3’s Place™)

Man, tacos are for dinosaurs. I just want that damned hat

RevDrLuv

OH @^#!!! I forgot the damned hat. Oh well, there goes another ad contract down the tubes.

bearskinrug

Grande burgers? Is that a taco and the hamburger in one?

glorymachine

You might get a free hat and a sundae, but you get 64oz of pure thirst quenching soda with my meal, not to mention 2 grande greasy burgers, and the 64oz cup fits in your SUV’s cup holder! That is half a gallon of American sugar rush! Now that is a value meal!

jel3

sweet deal…being the owner of a SUV I find it hard these days to purchase a soft drink that takes full advantage of my cargo space…

RevDrLuv

Alright dammit. What the hell is up with you (& Taco) throwing bricks, or whatever those are, all the time. Is this some chat room emoticon I am not down with or something?

glorymachine

I agree with the Rev, what the crap?

jeromius

2one2 = tacosaurus ?

split personality perhaps?

RevDrLuv

Maybe they’re just bosom buddies… awww how cute.

tacosaurus

Taco didn’t do it. 2one2 snuck into my underground laboratory and posted that emoticon thing under my name. He has been repremanded for such actions, “lets just say…he is no longer a problem.” my icons would look like this-> 8==0

tacosaurus

p.s. Jeromius.

2one2 wishes he was the Tacosaurus. I mean if I wasn’t as magnificently dopetasticly fabuloso-fine and all estute as I am, then I would want to be me too. Just think If I wasn’t as cool as the Tacosaurus, I couldn’t go all out for all the ladies “with my alligator boots and a diamond cloak.” Tacosaurus Wrex!

creighton

No no no…Tacosaurus WROX!
