Dunno about you.
There’s something about the Mac fries that’s got us swearing by it (at least most of the time).
Not even the news in the desi rags about use of beef extracts made a difference.
Last night, we read a piece in the New York Times Sunday Magazine (Oct 4, 2009) that McDonald’s uses dimethylpolysiloxane, a chemical used to treat head lice, in its fries.
According to the NYT, dimethylpolysiloxane is also used as a lubricant, a dry-cleaning solution, an aquarium sealant and a component of the tiles that let spacecraft reenter the atmosphere without burning up.
Common ingredients in Mac Fries and head lice treatment.
Can it get any worse?
Well, some addictions are hard to cure.
Despite knowing about the head lice chemicals, dry cleaning solution and all, we still went over to Mac a little while ago to pick up a Medium Fries ($1.49).
And what do we see? An ad for Arctic Orange Shake. Can’t recollect seeing that before in our part of the states.
So yours truly quickly ordered a Medium Arctic Orange Shake ($2.50).
Boy, was it good. Lord knows what head lice treatment chemical or pest extermination chemical they put in the Arctic Orange Shake.
But this is one real nice Shake.
