Movie Review: Super Size Me

by Nick Morgan

My ten word review of the new movie, Super Size Me:

Learning experience: Fast food is the devil. Must exercise now!

People who don't understand the concept that fast food is loaded with fat, grease, cholestorol, and with zero nutrional value are too stupid to live.

I also get tired of the "some people are too poor to buy anything else" argument.

Garbage! Tuna fish: 50 cents a can... sometimes less and about 100 times healthier than fast food.

I think the movie works more as a damning of the ignorance (or disregard for their health) of a certain portion of society rather than the fast food industry.

What's next? Mass tort against Ben and Jerry?

Or to practice medicine, I suppose; according to the Post, "I talked to doctors beforehand and they all said, 'You're going to be fine.' Three different doctors were all saying, 'You're going to be fine.' It was shocking to everybody, what started to happen," Spurlock says.

Tunafish, at least in my experience, needs some additions before it's going to taste good. This is the two-part draw of McD's: it is cheap, and it is designed to appeal to our stupid bodies, which still think we need to store enough fat to cross a desert on.

Nah, it's great on it's own! But, then again, you're talking to somone who eats cold leftover brussel sprouts.

Jogging thirty miles a week is also a hassle to some people, but hey, others do it. Working's a pain, raising kids are a pain, etc., etc. It's a give and take.

As far as the doctors go, one has to wonder how many he talked to before he found a few that said that.
