A couple of years ago, they had a promotion here - "The Seven Wonders of the World" (or something like that), if you ate there 7 days a week you could collect a different piece of crap bit of plastic, shaped like pyramid or whatever, every day. Encouraging people to eat there 7 night a week! It's bloody awful.

PS can anyone tell me about a court case in Aust? A man sued about false advertizing. The glossy pictures of the griled chicken burger showed a towering bun with a beatiful salad hanging out the sides. But the actual burger had fried chicken (only grilled briefly) and a glob of coleslaw instead of distinct ingredients.

How did it end up. Did the might of Macca's win in the end?
