Eating In Iceland Is Suddenly Healthier

Oh, this is sweet. . ..
McDonald's, the evil fast food restaurant chain famous for hamburgers and chicken dishes inedible even by fast food standards, is pulling out of an entire country.
The company announced its withdrawal from Iceland over the weekend, citing the recession there that resulted from the investment-dependent country's economic collapse after the 9/15 disaster. This is indeed good news.
And why? Because Icelanders no longer have to be subjected to the foodlike substances McDonald's serves. No one in Iceland will ever have to risk their health ingesting breakfast sandwiches ever again. No more will anyone in Reykjavik or Akureyri have to worry about a Big Mac attack, which can lead to a heart attack. The recession up in that lonely part of the world may be the best thing to happen for the health of the already fit Icelanders, and given the fact that all of them are literate, they should be smart enough to appreciate that.
Now if we could only do something about out food policy at home to hasten the McDonald's chain's decline in its home market. . . .
