    Default McDonalds Fans Drive 400km For Fastfood Feast After 8 Weeks In Lockdown

    Two Brits have caused outrage after revealing they travelled more than 400km to get a Macca’s fix.
    A handful of McDonald’s restaurants in the UK have recently reopened after the fast-food giant closed its doors because of the coronavirus pandemic.
    But the nearest one to Ryan Hall and Paisley Hamilton was three hours away.
    Their cravings clearly too much to deal with after eight weeks without their favourite food, the Macca’s fans hopped into the car, driving from Hull to Peterborough, 214km away.
    Once there, Ryan and Paisley sat in a 30-minute queue for the drive-through, before finally tucking into a $40 feast of chicken nuggets, Big Mac’s, cheeseburgers, a Filet-O-Fish and of course fries.

    If I did the math right, that was 6 1/2 hours plus the petrol in order to throw away $40 to feed two people greasy GMO junk. I could have fed a family of six a wholesome organic meal for $10 total... And we wouldn't even have to leave home.
    Words fail me.

    But they didn't want a wholesome meal! They wanted junk food, and travelled 250 miles to get it. There is no hope for the world with people like these.

    Guess this shows why Mickey D's is the global powerhouse that it is. With international sales revenue totaling over $100 Billion in 2019 from almost 39,000 restaurants worldwide, it is right up there with other international powerhouses like Amazon, Apple & Facebook. Thanks to people who drive 400km to spend $40 on junk!!
