I think we all here at patnet understand that the CPI is a sham, but this helps put it in numbers, at least a little.

Big Mac inflation has outpaced CPI inflation by a little under 1.5%. What really gets me though is that the Big Mac probably is made of cheaper ingredients than it was years ago.

probably

Probably? I shudder to think what they used to replace "Pinkslime" with, after they got busted for that.

Pink slime is to "food" as "corn sugar" is to sugar.

no wonder we're all sick

Pink slime was replaced by having the illegals who work at the factory take a smoke break by sitting at the edge of the meat vats and taking a shit in them. Since the factories charge for the loo, they get this 'fortifying emulsifier' for free and the illegals get to crap for free on work time. Win-win.

There's always kangaroo meat. And roadkill. And slightly expired Chinese prisoner organs.

All kinds of wonderful things can fall into a meat grinder.

Didn't even know what pinkslim was, but after a quick google search you forever ruined McDonald's for me.

I only eat burger at a steak house. I only eat burger medium to at most medium-well.

I also heard that McDos installed screens on the drains of their crappers at outlets to capture customer turds and recycle them as burger filler. Huge savings over the pink slime they once had to actually buy.

I read where some franchisers were going green, recycling human cadavers from the morgue into the "cheeseburgers"

Slowly inflation creeps up on you. Still, it shows how hungry people really are in this nation when they'll eat at McDonalds.

Persons who have spent long periods of time in countries where "mad cow disease" is found are not eligible to donate. This requirement is related to concerns about variant Creutzfeld Jacob Disease (vCJD). Learn more about vCJD and blood donation.

You don't have to travel to find mad cow, we had it right here in the U.S., it's from cannabilism. Now, with the shortage of grass and drought I'm sure they'll be doing it again, you just grind up the dead cow and feed it back to the cow again.

That's an inherent problem with a "for profit model", who ultimately sacrifices so that the profit can be made? YEP, you poor suckers that are sitting at the bottom portion of the TOP of the food chain.

We demonize hamburgers but in other countries it's actually a sensible meal. Hamburgers are demonized not because of their high fat content, truth is a hamburger made from lean ground beef, with ketcup and mustard but no mayo, along with an assortment of veggie toppings, is a healthy meal.
We listen way to much to Gay, Vegan Peta terrorists in this country, with alternate agendas than they claim.
They should go to Peru and pull their shit and see what it gets them.
Go to Malaysia where McDonald's has a VIP drive through, for concierges of high ranking government and diplomat officials.

What 2nd or 3rd world VIP could resist McDonald's fries? Nobody can resist their fries. The sound of those fry-o-laters is the same sound of my quarterly dividend payment landing in my account, which increases (faster than inflation) every year.
