The New York Times reports that McDonalds France ran an "advertorial" in the magazine Femme Actuelle, stating that children should not eat McDonalds food more than once per week. McDonalds U.S.A. disagreed with the advertorial, but not before the lawyers involved in lawsuits against the fast-food industry could follow the example of so many tyrants past and present and offer their thanks to France.
One wonders what possessed McDonalds France to run these ads. Is the alternative to McDonalds in France that much healthier? No, no, dont eat a hamburger. Go home (or to a non-fast food restaurant), and enjoy some vegetables (covered in hollandaise), or a nice lean cut of meat (covered in bernaise sauce), or if all else fails, just gnaw a stick of butter.
