I suppose the calories and fat content will need a pretty big board to have room to fit all the numbers.

They better use scientific notation to enumerate those calories -- b/c there's not enough room on the label to simply write them out.

Let's see: 1.7 x 10-to-the eighth ?

People will have a heart attack when they just read about the calories and fat in these foods! Then again, I don't think obese and clogged-artery customers are genuinely interested in those facts. The mouth and hand rule their lives. Their brains are secondary in making any healthy decisions.

For those truly interested, read Fast Food Nation. That should open a few eyes.

This is a great start! Calories aren't the only thing that needs to be stated though, sodium intake is also crutial when deciding to eat healthy. Sodium levels, too, should be stated along with the calories.

It probably won't matter, people get mad and resentful when you tell them how bad something is. When the only food groups you have ever known are salt, animal fat and starch you will NOT change your habits until you're dead.

I see a lot of fat white people also chomping down the cuisine of Taco Bell. Idiots like you like you need to get an education. You're probably 40 years old and living at home in your elderly grandmother's basement making minimum wage.

Why grandmother's basement? Does that make it more funny?

How about the source of the meat having no legs? Snake steaks, anyone?
