I've been reading recently how McDonalds are going through a bit of a sales slump and have acquired something of an image problem. I've just watched 'The Road To Guantanamo' on Channel Four and was somewhat surprised to hear one of the former inmates mention being allowed a choice of food including McDonalds just before their release.
I'm no marketing expert but I would have thought associating your product with torture, imprisonment and the like is something of a mistake. Mind you now I come to think of it the average branch of McDonalds is a bit like a toytown Guantanamo. Deliberately uncomfortable seating, shouting idiots, random violence, staffed by retards, unsanitary and of course you never have any idea why the hell you're in one and long to escape.
In defence of McDonalds they don't terrify you with dogs, though they do have that sinister molester clown thing which is almost as bad. I should also state that it has been some years since I've been in a McDonalds, though I did once see a guy get stabbed in one. Has it improved recently?
On an entirely different subject I have run out things to blog about. Please feel free to suggest possible topics below.
