    Am I the only person who thinks how appalling it is the the biggest sponsors for this Olympics (an event which is meant to represent sport at its greatest) are probably the two biggest food companies responsible for obesity not just in the uk but most of the western world.

    Im all for capitalism and free markets but surely the Olympics committee could of at least made a stand.

    Il point out this piece of art was white washed within 6days by the local council.

    They pay an obscene amount of money. But who cares? Its people who abuse these products that get fat. How is it the corporations fault? Its irresponsible people that are obese.

    I dont disagree with you pixel grinder about it being a persons own fault for eating too much

    however the olympics are pretty much meant to stand for integrity and sporting prowess, despite what the people in these companies say a mc donalds really cant be part of a health balance diet.

    How can you blame a company for making you fat? It's not like McDonalds come into your house, put a gun on your head and say "EAT THAT FCKING BURGER!"...

    It's a personal choice and those who are obese (of course, I'm excluding people who have a certain health condition that affects their bodyweight), they are just weak in mind. Simple.

    Nice graffiti, but that's about it.

    i didnt think id get so much stick for this.

    if you eat fatty food chances are you will get fat its not anyone fault but your own.

    I am not fat i am not blaming any company for being fat

    but come on do we really want our childrens brains associating mc donalds and coke with sport and keeping fit.
