MickyD's turns 50

According to Jeff Jarvis, today is McDonald's 50th birthday. He writes about how it is one of his guilty pleasures.

A quarter-cheese was my best hangover cure.

At my worst, I used to have two quarter cheese, a large fries, and a milk shake. It's a wonder I'm still alive.

After my cholesterol tests of later years and after seeing my father-in-law post-bypass, I had to give up McDonald's. My kids prefer Burger King, too. So it's rare that I go there anymore.

But I still like McDonald's. It represents speed, consistency, cleanliness, quality, value, and good, greasy, salty food. McDonald's is America.

So join me today and let's have a quarter-cheese and fries. Oh, what the hell, supersize that.

I agree. I may have to change my dinner plans.
