“Going to McDonald’s for a salad is like going to a prostitute for a hug”

"Going to McDonald’s for a salad is like going to a hooker/prostitute/whore for a hug” is a saying that has been printed on posters. McDonald’s specializes in hamburgers; salads are an afterthought and McDonald’s sells very few of them.

“Going to McDonalds for a salad is like going to a brothel for a hug” was cited on Twitter on July 18, 2009.


Wikipedia: McDonald’s
The McDonald’s Corporation is the world’s largest chain of hamburger fast food restaurants, serving around 68 million customers daily in 119 countries across 35,000 outlets. Headquartered in the United States, the company began in 1940 as a barbecue restaurant operated by Richard and Maurice McDonald; in 1948 they reorganized their business as a hamburger stand using production line principles. Businessman Ray Kroc joined the company as a franchise agent in 1955. He subsequently purchased the chain from the McDonald brothers and oversaw its worldwide growth.
