I would say no to that! Not my values, anyway.

Suzanne said...

Wonderful picture! I know that's what we're known for with the youth in Europe. Everyone equates us with McDonalds!

Great picture! Sadly, it is so true for many.

Lisa said...

I don't care for McDonalds much myself, but I'm afraid your caption for that picture is probably true

Canadian Dude said...

I'm loving it.

Here from Michele's.

Cheers!

Nothing is more american than a burger and fries, though I like my burgers from anywhere but McDonald's.

Nikki-ann said...

Here via Michele's :)

I try to keep away from that place! (MaccyD's, not Michele's!)

colleen said...

Ha! Great juxtipositiona and title. I just came from Kenju's and she's eating Chick fa lay. (I don't eat it or know how to spell it.)

Viamarie said...

Just like Lisa, I also don't go for McDonalds.

Have a great weekend Carmi!

Makes me glad I'm English. Which doesn't often happen, so thanks for that!

For me, it's not McDonalds but Starbucks. We Americans are a highly-caffeinated people. I'm amazed at how many kids I see ordering mochas, etc.

KaraMia said...

It's funny but when I was a kid, McD's was not a everyday kinda thing but my son has grown up with it.

Matt said...

Burger and fries? Yes...not probably not from McDonald's! MD is skimping out on pickles in the quarter pounder...and I prefer rto have onions and lettuce on my burger....

Dave said...

I'm more of a Burger King man myself! :-)

Kat said...

I love that you got those two things in one picture!!!

I will allow myself to indulge in fast food on occasion, but not with anywhere near the frequency that a lot of Americans do. After seeing Super Size Me, it was difficult for me to eat anything from McDonald's for a long time. Obesity is an American epidemic and one that must be stopped!

Carmen said...

That was a great picture!

I can't stand McD's - I'll take my kids there on a (very) rare occasion.

Plumkrazzee said...

I'm with Kat....Supersize Me made me boycott Mickey D's. Morgan Spurlock is a genius as far as I'm concerned....I love his documentaries.

Stephanie Davies said...

Michele sent me today. Man, totally wrong for McDonalds to "fly" above the flag. :(

Plain Jane said...

The American Flag upside down is a signal of distress, in this case a backwards one might be suitable as well...

FrogLegs said...

I'd agree with the caption for most- however not my family. :)

L said...

so true... heh heh heh
