The letter that McDonald’s sent to the Senate admitting that McPicanha’s meat is not sirloin really surprised me: is that meat? I was not expecting.
That McPicanha didn’t have picanha and Whopper ribs didn’t have ribs, I already suspected.
Both McDonald’s and Burger King say the products have the aroma of sirloin and prime rib, respectively, although they do not contain sirloin or prime rib. It’s normal.
Today, almost all things say other things, which turns out to be an absolute lack of respect for the dignity of things.
Right now, for example, it’s almost impossible to buy a bag of potato chips that call themselves French fries.
There are potatoes flavored with cheese, ham, onions, garlic, herbs and barbecue. You have to look hard to find this rarity that are potato-flavored potatoes.
Among these flavors there will be some more bizarre than others, but none is stranger than the barbecue flavor. We are not told what kind of barbecue the potatoes are for. Whether it’s fish barbecue, beef barbecue, pork barbecue or chicken barbecue. It just says: barbecue. Which is a fancy way of saying that potatoes are actually smoked.
There is no point crying over potatoes because they are not the isolated victims of the plague. There is coffee flavored with anise, vanilla or cinnamon, and water flavored with lemon, strawberry, peach, raspberry or ginseng.
The case of water is particularly scandalous, as, as the dictionary says, it is a colorless, odorless and tasteless liquid.
If it has color, smell or taste, it is no longer water. What they sell us is therefore fraud in a bottle. “Flavored water” is an intrinsic contradiction of the terms in which it is expressed.
It is not modernity; it’s silly. Especially because flavored water was invented a few years ago in the East. Looks like it’s called “tea”.
If I bought one of these McPicanha without picanha, or a Rib Whopper without rib, I’d pay with paper previously rubbed on a R$50 bill. It’s not money, but it has the aroma. I wanted to see what arguments they would have for refusing.
