Wendy's is out to kill us


This ridiculous pile of (I assume very tasty) garbage packs 710 calories, 52% of which is derived from Fat.  That's 41 grams of fat, 16 grams of which is Saturated Fat.   If that's not quite bad enough, it also "provides" 1400 grams of sodium- or more than half the MAXIMUM RDA for sodium.  

But wait, there's more!

You can also get a DOUBLE Bourbon Bacon Cheese Fat Murderburger, which clocks in at 970 calories.  Or you can go full-on F--k It I'm Done and get the TRIPLE version, which has 1280 calories, 86 grams of fat and 1940 grams of sodium.  Want fries with that?  Of course you do!  And don't forget the large Coke, or perhaps a milkshake?  And don't forget dessert!

I've said it before, and I'll say it again:  This is one of the main reasons we can't have Universal Health Care:  We simply can't afford it.  Not only can we not afford the extra health care costs that come with obesity, but we can't afford to remove the last shred of incentive for these ridiculous chow hounds to get a grip on what they eat.  I'm sure there are people out there who have cut back on shoveling junk down their cake holes for the sole purpose of lowering their insurance costs and avoiding the crippling bills that come from being dependent on insulin, or are at least concerned that they might in the near future need a mobility scooter that isn't 100 percent covered by their plan.  Enact Universal Health Care and those people who don't give a damn about their looks OR their ability to tie their shoes without flop-sweating will celebrate with a trip to the Drive-Thru because F-- Your Beauty Standards You Fatphobic F--k, or something.
