What sort of campaign is this? Where was it seen?




















Here are some good-to-know words from the small print near the bottom:

  • 省点
  • 助力
  • 环保


Caution: This spoiler gives it all away.

I've always thought that the little slip of paper they put on the trays is a bit of a waste of paper (the trays themselves are plastic and easily wiped down, negating the need for the paper), so it's a little ironic that the paper itself is carrying an anti-waste message.

"The trays themselves are plastic and easily wiped down . . ."


But when your fries scoot out of the little packet onto that wiped-down plastic tray, would you eat them? Or dip them into ketchup you've squeezed right onto that tray?

It's off topic, but...


Took the snapshots at the start of this thread one day at noon when a couple friends prevailed on me to stop there for lunch after our workout at the gym. I spent 40 RMB on a combo meal that featured an Angus beef patty hamburger with bacon and the trimmings (lettuce and tomato.) It came with a promotional french fry dish that was sauced on top with ribbons of ketchup, mayonnaise, and some kind of brown gravy. (It looked artistic.) And a medium cola. 


The burger was ultra-well-done, perhaps out of concern for customer safety. Dry and tasteless. The fried potatoes were just bizarre, not in a good way. I left half the burger and half the fries behind. 


I usually have lunch across the street at a small, open-front shop specializing in the chicken noodle soup dishes of Zhaotong Prefecture 昭通州, where 11 yuan gets me a medium bowl of delicious chicken noodle soup with an egg on top. Pickled vegetables generously mixed in. 


So I stupidly paid nearly four times as much for the privilege of dining under the golden arches. It seems I have to relearn that lesson two or three times a year.
