Contradictory advertising 

MacDonald's has absolutely lost their marbles. "Going for GOLD has never tasted so good" is the catch-phrase on an ad picturing a huge burger, giant fries, and a huge Coke. MacDonald's, I'm certain, is the main reason Americans are doing so well in Beijing, what with 60 percent of their children unable to see their toes, let alone challenge an olympic event. Lame, MacDonald's. Lame. At least put one of your hermetically-sealed astronaut salads in the ad, rather than the cause of an entire generations' roly-poly shame.
