This Is For All The Fat Girls!

By Wyatt Earp | October 30, 2010

Sorry for channeling Camryn Manheim, but this story had me convulsing in the middle of the kitchen floor. The worst part is that I was buck naked at the time. Wow, I probably shouldn’t have put “Camryn Manheim” and “buck naked” so close together.

If you’re a fan of personal responsibility, I would suggest you stay the hell out of Brazil.

A Brazilian court ruled this week that McDonald’s must pay a former franchise manager $17,500 because he gained 65 pounds while working there.

The 32-year-old man said he felt forced to sample the food each day to ensure quality standards remained high, because McDonald’s hired “mystery clients” to randomly visit and report on the food, service and cleanliness. The man also said the company offered free lunches to employees, adding to his caloric intake. (H/TDoghouse)

Isn’t that just lovely. Hey fat ass, just because you get free meals doesn’t mean you need to eat a Big Mac every damned time! McDonald’s has salads! Of course, it won’t help if you top one with a McFlurry.

    Yeah, I was like, “Why didn’t that idiot eat a salad here and there.”

    Can I sue my family for the thyroid problem that impedes/slows my weight-loss efforts?

    Can I? Huh? Huh?

    When I worked at McD, there were free meals, but with a limited selection. We could have hamburgers, cheeseburgers, fried chicken, chicken nuggets, etc.

    Salads, grilled chicken sandwiches, etc (any of the “healthy options”) were not available for the employee meal. If we wanted any of that, we had to pay full price. It was one of the reasons I brought my own lunch.

    Also, I would not eat any salads, parfaits, etc if I were you. When the food expires, they take the old sticker off and put a new one on. This is standard practice at most fast food places.

    As for this particular person, while not surprised by the weight gain, it is still his choice to shovel that garbage down his throat.

    I applaud all of those Mickey D’s customers and workers who stuff their faces with that crap. Their last ounce of self respect and overindulgence puts a smile on my face. Eat up pigs!

    A great man once said: “If you want to look thin, you hang out with fat people.” RIP Thornton Mellon.

    I work at a winery and get free bottles but I won’t blame the boss if I become a drunk.

    every time I eat anything from McDonald’s $1 menu or a double cheeseburger I get indigestion, cramps, bloating, and dysentery later…idk how homey coulda done it unless he built up some kind of immunity

    OTOH it DID happen in Brazil, not here

    Remember Brazil? Where the lefties proclaimed a role model for the rest of the world since they had supposedly made a success out of “going green” using sugar cane to make so-called biofuels?

    Till they discovered mega oil deposits offshore???

    so much for corn likker and rum in the gas tank!

    hey…any distraction in the run up to the elections on Tuesday will do

    He may have won the suit, only he can’t fit into it.
    Forget the money, he should have negotiated for the Triple Bypass Deluxe.

    Randal – “Hey, you’re big and fat!”

    Fozzy – We get free cocaine from the evidence room. Oh, I’ve said too much . . .

    MC – Brazil looks so much better compared to its socialist neighbor Venezuela.

    Mrs. Crankipants – With extra cheese.

    When I worked at Mickey D’s we got a 50% discount but that mostly turned into free. And the managers would sometimes trade burgers for pizza or Mexican food with other places. So this joker just had no imagination. And we didn’t change the dates on anything. They just became free food for employees if they weren’t thrown out.

    Ingineer66 – That’s an awesome idea, the trading. Probably get sick of the same stuff all the time – except for the fries . . . world’s best.
