Subject: RE: BS: film - Super-Size Me - Morgan Spurlock
About five years ago my then 5-yr-old daughter had been after me to take her to McDonalds because all the kids at school were always talking about it.

The nearest McDonalds is either Blaxland or Lithgow, about a half-hour drive to either, so the threat is not as immediate as it is for most.

One day after we had been in Sydney for some reason or other I took her into McDonalds at Blacktown and bought her a Big Mac.

She forced herself to take two or three bites and then handed it over to me.
"You can finish that Dad," she said.
She had tried really hard to like it, but couldn't.
She hasn't asked to go back.
