Yep, people are suing fast food restaurants as if they are cigarette producers, as this story from MSNBC (among others) details. Now, I made many mistakes in my youth, and did many things I’m not proud of, but I realize that my misdeeds, including my fast food consumption, are my own fault, no one else’s.

Here’s my favorite quote from McDonald’s rebuttal: “We’ll proudly defend the McDonald’s hamburger,” said company spokesman Walt Riker. “It represents the most basic building blocks of the American diet.”

Does anyone else besides me laugh out loud at reading this?

And no, I’m not going to tell you the other misdeeds I performed (they would probably take too long to list anyway, and I’m not sure if the statute of limitations is over yet).
