McDonalds to sponsor F.A.T. team

fattymcd.jpg
The world loves football (soccer) and McDonald's loves fatty foods. It was only a matter of time before the fast food giant stepped up and put their name on a team jersey.

Ronald and Co. just wanted to make sure they found the appropriate sponsor first.

According to the Football Association of Thailand (FAT), McDonald's will provide £450,000 in cash, and the rest in products, in exchange for shirt sponsorship for the next three years.

For that, they will get to sponsor the Thai National Football team.

The money will be used for equipment, training and support.
The team has never made the World Cup and is currently ranked 110th in the world.

Thai officials hope McD's money will help make the World Cup dreams come true.

Players meanwhile, will be able to fuel up on free burgers.
So, don't could on it.

I find this headline as offensive as the Modern Wafare F.A.G.S. controversy.

But mostly because I hate fat people.

More fat hate.

Ridiculous.

The bun on the burger is basically pure sugar, the toppings mostly sugar, the fries are worse than pure table sugar and the drink is pure sugar.

So why the focus on the fat? Well, actually, you should be, because McD used to use natural animal fats and has switched to highly processed and oxidized vegetable fats.

Also, if you think this sponsorship is bad... how about Coca Cola buying out the AAFP?
