    Top 10 Ridiculous Examples of Corporate Greed

    You know that McDonald’s is kind of evil, because there are more column inches and pseudo-scientific documentaries dedicated to that fact than there are as to whether or not jet fuel can burn hot enough to melt steel. But we felt that there was just a little more life left in this idea thanks to some lesser known facts about America’s “favorite” burger company.

                              McD's gets a bad rap. The food at any of the gourmet burger outfits is way more unhealthy than anything McD's offers. If people didn't like their product they wouldn't still be in business, never mind having branches in all corners of the world. Ignore the food cranks.

                                          I love McDonald's! I eat there all the time. A typical meal for me consists of:
                                          2 double cheeseburgers
                                          1 double quarter pounder
                                          1 big mac
                                          1 large fries
                                          I know what you're thinking.... and no, I'm not fat. I'm 6' 3" and weigh 185 lbs .

                                                        I've worked at McDonald's. Believe me, that food absolutely rots when left in even mildly damp conditions. The Dumpster at mine absolutely reeked of rotten food unless it had just been emptied. The problem with most of the experiments done is that the food dries out, inhibiting rotting.

Big corporations do avoid paying taxes when they can by using the loop holes that are there. This does not mean that they are breaking any laws. If they tightened up the tax code then they would pay them.
