http://www.slashfood.com/2009/09/28/burger-king-to-sell-quarter-pound-double-cheeseburger-for-1-dollar/

A buck a burger, sounds pretty good to me. That's what, $1.25 Aussie for a burger. I went to KFC the other day and got two colonel burgers, I handed over a 20 dollar bill and I didn't get much change! O_O

Yeah but do you really want to eat it?

Also, the thread topic is of course facetious in nature, but won't it ruin the economy in healthcare expenses when the fatties load up on burgers?

Like the areshole, would you want to eat it? Who knows what stuff they're putting in it to keep the price that low.

Even though KFC isn't exactly healthy themselves, their ingredients are pretty good quality.

$4.95 for a fillet, zinger
$6.25 for a works

I am ashamed to be part of such piracy.

What the hell, water down mayo. That's just weird. I've heard of watering down soft drinks and cordial, but not sauces silent

ACTUALLY, the chicken is fresh from Steggles and Ingham.

Not so sure about the cook at each store.

For those not following, I work at KFC.

There's this gooey residue that collects at the bottom of the chicken fryers. There are bagged up and put in a freezer.

When gravy is needed the residue, which is now solid but crumbly clump, is mixed with boiling hot water and Gravox.

The potato is just powder and hot water.

Here's a tip, go to the Farmer's Market and get some fresh produce. So long as you eat processed foods you're going to be eating shit that some grubby bastard has had his fingers in. It's easy and cheap to maintain a healthy diet by cooking all your own meals, and they taste a whole lot bloody better than fast food. Or restaurant food, if you're good at it.

That sounds disgusting, but sadly, I'm still not turned off.

I'm with your Fox. As much as I want to, I'm not turned off by it and probably will end up eating it again. Taste too good, and too easy to get D:

I'm not sure about where you live, but in the Adelaide China Town, they have this place where they give you a plate for $5 and you can fill it up with as much food as you like. That's good cheap food.. cheers

Sounds pretty dodgy.

A Chinese restaurant near me got closed because they used cats as food =S

I know have to live with the fact that I more than likely ate cat, several times.
