Quote of the Day: Man Cannot Live on McNuggets Alone

How many McNuggets is too many?

"She's been told in no uncertain terms that she'll die if she carries on like this. But she says she can't eat anything else."


-Evonne Irvine, discussing her daughter Stacey who recently collapsed after eating almost nothing but Chicken McNuggets for the past 15 years. Doctors say that the fast food treats don't give her adequate vitamins, have caused anemia and have contributed to swollen veins in her tongue (though, she does somehow manage to stay trim even though they are packed with calories). Stacey understands that the food is not good for her, and has said "I have started to realise this is really bad for me." [Independent]

    Ummm. Maybe you should make more than a start. I think you can say they aren't good for me - period. Or full stop as they say across the pond.

  5. Where is the parent who allowed this to continue? Everybody wants to be a friend with their kids, few actually want to do the heavy lifting required to be a parent. Sometimes that means saving the child from the child.
