McDonald’s has built at 1,500-seat monolith at the London Olympics grounds, according to the Associated Press. One has to marvel at the sheer ironic pomposity built in to the Olympics Committee’s move here. What better way to celebrate some of the world’s best-conditioned bodies than to to mainline fat, high sodium and processed food into the veins shuffling, glassy-eyed attendees?
Check out the complex above in all its corporate, beef commodity-moving glory. Note the über-modern look. McDonad’s apparently wants to bring fast food into the brave new world.
Is it any different than tailgaters feasting on beer brats, potato chips and cans of Bud or Miller while watching football and baseball teams slug it out? Not really, but McDonald’s move must be admired for its bold absurdity.
