Contrarian Dave Winwood amazed friends over the weekend by
vehemently criticizing the nutritional value of McDonalds while he
was himself eating McDonalds and appearing to enjoy it.
"Look at these sheep, lined up in this dirty hellhole for what's
nothing more than a bunch of salt on Styrofoam. You ever see
the burgers before the meat spray is added?" Winwood asked an
elderly woman at a nearby table, "Exactly like Styrofoam man," said
Winwood, taking a large bite of his Big Mac and appearing to really
"Don't get me started on nuggets. If you knew what was in
those nuggets you would throw up all over the place. Is it
cool if I snag a nugget by the way?"
Winwood reserved his highest degree of scorn for those ordering
the premium meal deals. "That Angus combo comes to almost
$11. You could go to a nice diner and get a home-cooked meal
for that," Winwood shouted at someone trying to enjoy their Angus
combo before he was asked to leave by managers. Winwood agreed to
leave but insisted on getting three junior chickens for the
road. He then shouted at the Angus person that he was
enjoying three junior chickens for less than the price of one Angus
burger, which strangely generated a small smattering of applause
from other value menu devotees.
