I had a triple Whopper, by the way, for lunch. I'm skipping dinner tonight.
I don't really have a problem with this kind of offering. When I do eat fast food, I eat a *lot*. In the town in which I clerked, there was a diner that offered a deep-fried sub. They'd deep-fry an entire submarine bun, then slice it and load it with various stuff. My favorite was turkey salad, cranberry sauce, Swiss cheese, bacon, and mayo. I'd eat two entire deep-fried subs and a corn dog or chili dog whenever I ate there.
It's also not unusual for me to eat a half-dozen chili dogs at a time, or four Double Cheeseburgers at McDonald's, and follow up with a big dessert. And I'm not a big guy.
But, I don't eat fast food very often. If you eat a Triple Whopper on a regular or semi-regular basis, yeah, it's a problem. It strikes me as weird that "Super-Size Me" shocked so many people with the revelation that eating at McDonald's all the time was unhealthy.
