"Size matters. Since the year Ice Ice Baby littered the airwaves (a.k.a. 1990), the size of the average cheeseburger has doubled, and the calorie count for a standard chocolate chip cookie has quintupled!"

I was watching a food documentary that says Burger King's Whopper Jr, for children, is actually larger than the original Whopper, for adults, when they first introduced it. I'm not surprized.

and my friends laugh at me when we are traveling and I order a Happy Meal, which is more than enough food for me.
I'll lend you Supersize me sometime, if you really want a lot of this.
Of course, if you really want to get depressed, I'll lend you Food, Inc.

I keep looking at Food, Inc, and Supersize me on Netflix when I'm thinking of streaming something.

I remember when we first went to McDonalds when I was a kid and my parents got the equivalent of a Happy Meal each. And at garage sales I sometimes find old restaurant dinner plates. They're so much smaller than even home dinnerware is now. Jeez.
