    Better known for its roast beef, the chain is adding a hamburger to its menu for the first time in its nearly 60-year history. Arby's announced Monday it's adding the "Wagyu Steakhouse Burger," which costs $5.99, as a limited-time offering beginning Monday through July 31. Fast-food chains are constantly competing for customers' dollars and attention, and specialty offerings are a way to attract new customers and maintain existing ones. That's important for Arby's, which has 3,400 U.S. restaurants, according to industry research firm Technomic. That's a substantially smaller footprint compared to other chains, like McDonald's (roughly 14,000 locations). As...

    U.S.—Scientists are warning of a deadly new COVID variant: the Supersized Double Mega Limited Edition Teenage Mutant Ninja Snyder Cut Variant With Frickin' Laser Cannons. "God help us all," murmured one scientist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "It's evolved laser cannons! Frickin' laser cannons! If it weren't so deadly, it'd be pretty frickin' rad. Man, oh man." The new variant is double the size of the last one. It is also supersized, so it comes with larger fries and a giant sweet tea, which is a nice consolation for it being so deadly. It's a limited edition,...

    Documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock first shot to national attention with his 2004 film Super Size Me. He ate nothing but McDonald’s food and chronicled his ill health during that time. Spurlock and his film became a cultural phenomenon. He received the Best Director award at Sundance and was nominated for an Academy award. But what if McDonald’s wasn’t the real problem with his health? Each day during his month-long experiment, he ate all his meals only at McDonald’s, and he ate large servings by any restaurant’s standards. No one forced him. By the experiment’s end, he reported experiencing shakes (as...

    Morgan Spurlock is coming clean. In an unprompted extended tweet titled “I am the problem,” the documentarian took it upon himself to reveal specific instances where he had sexually harassed women and been unfaithful to his wives. “Over my life, there have been many instances that parallel what we see everyday in the news,” he wrote in his lengthy post in regards to the recent sexual harassment and assault accusations that have consumed headlines for weeks.

    Thirteen years after Morgan Spurlock’s hit documentary Super Size Me put the fast-food industry on blast and the filmmaker on the map as one of the modern era’s best-known documentarians, Spurlock is back with a sequel. Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken! will have its world premiere on Friday at the Toronto International Film Festival (screening details for those in Toronto for the fest can be found here). Whereas in the original film, the Oscar-nominated Spurlock attempted to eat only McDonald’s food products for a 30-day period, Super Size Me 2 finds the filmmaker opening up his own fast-food establishment,...

    Donald is large. Very large. At more than 600 pounds, he is a mountain of flesh with a small opening at the top through which he speaks. "My stomach hurts," he says, his voice surprisingly high and childlike. It is 10:00 pm in the emergency room, and I am already swamped with patients I'm trying to move through the ER before my shift is over. Asked if he's ever felt this kind of pain before, Donald says, "No, never. At least, not like this." "Well, what'd you expect?" the unit secretary mutters, only half to herself. Donald is in his...

    A U.S. restaurant famous for cooking up giant hamburgers has outdone itself. The Detroit News reports that Mallie's Sports Grill & Bar made a 338-pound (153-kilogram) "Absolutely Ridiculous Burger" on Thursday. A crowd gathered to salivate over the unveiling of the $2,000 menu item. The sandwich packs 540,000 calories and takes 22 hours to cook. Manager Jason Jones says the burger, which has 15 pounds of lettuce, 30 pounds of bacon, 30 pounds of tomatoes and 36 pounds of cheese, comes with fries and a drink.

    Have you seen the news stories about the obesity epidemic? Did you see Super Size Me? Then guess what? ... You've been fed a load of bologna. Comedian (and former health writer) Tom Naughton replies to the blame-McDonald's crowd by losing weight on a fat-laden fast-food diet while demonstrating that nearly everything we've been told about obesity and healthy eating is wrong. Along with some delicious parody of Super Size Me Naughton serves up plenty of no-bologna facts that will stun most viewers, such as: The obesity "epidemic" has been wildly exaggerated by the CDC. People the government classifies as...

    It’s not likely dieticians will be endorsing his regimen, but a Virginia man demonstrated it is possible to regularly dine at a fast-food restaurant without being criticized for signing your own death certificate. Despite media attacks on fast-food for being unhealthy, ABC’s “Good Morning America” showed that healthier options are available without heavy-handed involvement from government in its June 19 broadcast. “Meet Chris Coleson – for years the Virginia man said he was eating too much and, of course, no diet seemed to work,” co-host Diane Sawyer said. “Then last December, he tipped the scales at 278 pounds and made...

    Would Jesus Eat at McDonald's? Saturday 11th Aug 2007 by David Paulin The intellectual elite of the Presbyterian Church (USA) have in recent years joined ranks with the radical left. Its members vilify Israel, apologize for Islamic terrorists, and cheer on the Palestinian cause. Now, these Presbyterians have another villain: the Big Mac. America’s most famous hamburger is emblematic of the dark underbelly of globalization, according to David Hadley Jensen, an associate professor of something called “constructive theology” at Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Austin, Texas. On top of that, McDonald’s and its iconic burger are even at odds with...

    THE hunter has become the hunted. Michael Moore, the celebrated left-wing film-maker, has become the unwilling subject of a new documentary that raises damaging questions about the credibility of his work. The director and star of successful documentaries such as Roger & Me, Bowling for Columbine and Fahrenheit 9/11, Moore has repeatedly been accused by his right-wing enemies of distorting or manipulating the material in his films. On his website he dismisses his critics as “wacko attackos”. Yet the latest assault on Moore’s film-making techniques has come from an unexpected quarter. In Manufacturing Dissent, a documentary to be shown for...

From the opening segment, whose message was that things are worse in Afghanistan than you realize, to an interview with MSM foreign policy fave Thomas Friedman decrying tax cuts, to anti-McDonald's crusader Morgan Spurlock, ahem, spuriously trying to pass himself off as an opponent of hype, it was all pretty predictable liberal stuff. But Katie did - unintentionally no...

    HORSHAM, Pa. - Filmmaker Morgan Spurlock apologized for cursing, calling teachers pot smokers and making insensitive remarks about "retarded" students during a recent speech to Hatboro-Horsham High School students. "It is never my intent to insult or demean anyone - and I understand how some of my remarks may have offended some in attendance and if you feel they did, then I am deeply sorry," he wrote in "A Letter of Explanation," posted last weekend on his blog. Spurlock, who ate nothing but McDonald's meals for 30 days to make his Oscar-nominated 2004 documentary "Super Size Me," spoke for about...

    HORSHAM, Pa. -- The filmmaker who ate nothing but McDonald's meals for his Oscar-nominated film, ''Super Size Me,'' gave a profanity-laced, politically incorrect speech at a suburban Philadelphia high school, but not everyone was lovin' it. Speaking at Hatboro-Horsham High School's first-ever health fair, Morgan Spurlock joked about the intelligence of McDonald's employees, about ''retarded kids in the back wearing helmets'' and teachers smoking pot in the balcony. The special education students in the back row were led by teachers out of the presentation. ''If you put the whole package together ... it just wasn't appropriate,'' Superintendent William Lessa said....

    The first big attack on fast food's place in popular culture came in the form of the 2004 movie, Super Size Me, by gross-out filmmaker Morgan Spurlock. In the movie -- styled as a documentary -- Spurlock goes on an all-McDonald's diet for a month. He must eat at that restaurant morning, noon and night, and whenever he is offered a "super size" portion, he must accept. Spurlock does for the nutrition debate what Michael Moore does for politics -- he acts as an incendiary troublemaker who never lets the facts get in the way of scoring a few points...

    RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Inspired by the documentary "Super Size Me," Merab Morgan decided to try a fast-food-only diet. The construction worker and mother of two ate only at McDonald's for 90 days and lost 37 pounds. It was a vastly different outcome from what happened in the documentary to filmmaker Morgan Spurlock, who put on 30 pounds and saw his health deteriorate after 5,000 calories a day of nothing but McDonald's food for a month. Morgan thought the documentary unfairly targeted the world's largest restaurant company, implying that the obese were victims of a careless corporate giant. People are...
