    It's about time. I chose the only correct options in the poll, Mickey D's is trying to get in on the next popular wave. Oh, also Durf and Beer/Boobies/POING.

    This really won't change anything. Instead of getting just one super-jumungous sized fries, people will just get an extra order of fries to compensate. I can see it now:

    Fat Kid #1: There's just not as many fries in my Combo meal as before.
    Fat Kid #2: Yeah, I'm gonna go buy another order of fries....and an apple pie. You want one?
    Fat Kid #1: Yeah, grab me another fries and get a refill on my really big Coke.

    Do you really think McD's would be cancelling the supersize without having done marketing research to see what will happen?

    Since everybody is trying to jump on the bandwagon to a healthy lifestyle...
    Maybe they should add "Fat Tax" to their food too...


    Fat Tax: they Tax you a certain amount on your food depending on how much you weigh...so if you weigh alot your gonna pay alot.
    I suppose that would be weight discrimination wouldn't it? but it would discourage some people from buying fatty foods. Or depress them a whole lot...And it would make the Fast Food Industry super rich...stupid Pro's and Con's

    NOTE: this actually was a idea by either the Canadian or American Goverment to help discourage people from eating fatty foods. plus get a little bit of extra cash

    EDIT:If they ever, ever plan to implement this, they have to do some real research on how it will affect people....

    I've heard on several ocassions that obesity puts a healthy strain on the national health care budget, seeing how we are the most obese nation on the planet.

    If this is fact, and since no one seems to mind taxing the crap out of smokers "for their own good", then why not create a fat tax?

    I can just see people scouring the mall looking for the lightest shoes and clothing possible, to be worn only to McD's.

    Come to think of it, I can also see another sign on the wall of McD's.

    "Don't lean on counter when standing on the scale."

    I think they should get rid of the supersize...as my mom worked at McD's in college, there was only small fry, and a large fry. And the large fry was like 2 small fries, which is like a medium fry today...
    Though, tis not gonna stop people from fillin their face with fries...

    And they have a luxury tax, why not a fat tax...

    what the hell? Why did the get rid of Supersizing. Do they force you to eat the supersize?? No. It's your own fault if you get fat from supersizing stuff.... that's so lame.

    Now im gonna have to buy two large fries and get charged extra.. what a load.

    I just checked, and here locally they still sell the fry buckets! now that is super sized lol

    I guess that we're just behind around here, since I think they stopped sellin the buckets everywhere else ages ago. So come to Texas, we'll probably still have supersized until 2010

    Blech. Good riddance. Although now people are just going to buy more to get the same amount. McDonalds will never, ever, be known for healthy eating. No matter what they do. Sure, people will delude themselves into thinking that they're eating better, but it's all horse poopy.

    thats actually smart on their part. instead of paying 50 cents or whatever it is to supersize, now they have to buy a whole new thing costing them more.
