Enjoy That Cheeseburger, Because It Could Be Your Last

Above, a new pro-vegetarian spot from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine that's making explicit the link between fast-food consumption and heart disease. Like, really explicit: The corpse at the center the ad died gettin' his burger on, as evidenced by the Big Mac Of Death that remains in his hand while a woman weeps over his lifeless body. Leaving aside the obvious questions regarding the man's grip on his burger-sized deathtrap and the process of rigor, one must ask: Why is it always McDonald's that gets whacked by ads of this ilk? Surely one is more likely to keel over as the direct result of eating a Double Down, or, chowing his way through two feet of pizza. And it's not like McDonald's arches are the most visually appealing option for the kicker: A couple of tiny Burger King crowns would look so cute superimposed over the dead dude's feet at the very end of this spot! You could even add the tagline "He had it his way… and then he died," and you'd have a goldmine.

if we want more vegetarians we should just send all grade schoolers on a field trip to a feed lot and slaughter house.

whatever. When I was in (Catholic) grade school, one sunny afternoon they herded us all into the cafeteria, whereupon we were greeted by a giant tray on each table displaying a massive, skinned, bovine torso. Then they turned us loose with the scalpels and the hacksaws. (Yes. Truth.) One of the most stinky, bitchen' days of my Grade School life.

now it all makes sense.

He died eating a burger at a toga party?

Toga toga toga!

Cheeseburger cheeseburger cheeseburger!

Perhaps he died of John Belushi syndrome. Which is nevertheless preferable to the prolonged suffering of James Belushi syndrome.

Could have been improved by a cut at the end of the wife and the doctor eating together in a fast food restaurant with ominous music cue.
