    Tank fast foodfest costs more than frat checkbin

    Just discovered an interesting statistic about our poor transatlantic cousins who apparently spend approximately $10 Billion annually on fast food, an amount more than they spend upon higher education.

    Now, does this explain why septics are all so fat or stupid?

    The Thai of course spend inversely but cognitive skills may not be proportionate.

    Is there any correlation here or are the stats a red herring or an underdone burger?

    Frat is short for Fraternity which is a male only brotherhood
    Checkbin is a bar tab

    So what do Gay Bar Fines have to do with it ?

    I know this is MKP and all put I just read an article this morning about the major US food and beverage companies having spent $1.6 billion in 2006 on marketing their products (predominantly 'junk food') to children.

    Umm. Small minded though your comment was, I wonder if it was a congenital blip belched out of a gut genetically programmed by ( a ) too much ground beef and french fries or ( b ) no access to a college?

    Frankly, you seem to be my only proof but I did post in good faith and wondered if there was any correlation between the fact that Americans spend more money on crap food than on tertiary education.

    Given the consequences of American involvement in the greater world perhaps we have an explanation that sheds light on the conundrum of their ineptitude?

    Actually, it is a valid proposition and possibly worthy of debate but I suppose your contribution will yield little more than a mustard burp?

    Assuming your figures are correct, I wonder if America is unique in this statistic.

    Seems to me any country in the world spends more money on food be it "crap" food or otherwise than they do on education?

    Yup, that's for sure.

    The elephant in the room is of course the " ethnics ", politespeak for the "shines" who, despite so called emancipation, are still regarded by the Ivy league intelligentsia controlling most aspects of septic society as the deadweight pulling down a society which has no need for their lumpen labour or their drain on welfare. They probably account for the greatest proportion of fast food consumption and of course are still the largest minority failing to achieve progress proportionate to their numbers.

    As a terminal indictment on the failure of the American dream, the blacks must be the worst possible evidence about which they can do nothing save to ignore them.

    Which is of course what they did in New Orleans when the floods came. Whitey got out leaving the dispossessed to cling onto the debris and detritus of a threatened society that regarded them as worthless and without representation - a constituency of the redundant left to feed upon itself and in doing so confirmed whitey's worst stereotypical prejudices.

    God bless America, indeed.

    Why on earth did you think I posted the hamburger stat?

    Outflanked again it seems, Tex

    As a Brit who lived in Florida for over 3 years, I can attest that the vast majority of US colleagues, neighbours and aquaintances were indeed dim and could discuss the merits and demerits of burgers far more eloquently than any political topic one could suggest.
