“Why don’t lions like fast food?” (joke)

"Fast food” means food that is prepared quickly—not animals that are fast or slow. “Why doesn’t a lion like fast food?” is a joke that was on Twitter on August 15, 2012. The answer is that, if the food (such as a gazelle) is fast, the lion can’t catch it!

“Zombies hate fast food” is a similar saying. “I don’t eat snails—I prefer fast food” and “What’s the slowest soup a chef can prepare? Turtle soup!” are two other fast/slow food animal jokes.


Wikipedia: Fast food
Fast food is the term given to food that is prepared and served very quickly, first popularized in the 1950s in the United States. While any meal with low preparation time can be considered fast food, typically the term refers to food sold in a restaurant or store with preheated or precooked ingredients, and served to the customer in a packaged form for take-out/take-away. Fast food restaurants are traditionally separated by their ability to serve food via a drive-through. The term “fast food” was recognized in a dictionary by Merriam–Webster in 1951.

The lion eats the gazelle that runs the slowest; so, the lion doesn’t like fast food.(François Morency)#quotes
