I have discovered an increasingly disturbing fashion trend. McDonald's t-shirts...Featured in ELLEgirl's latest isue and discovered by me on www.delias.com. I am finding this very hard to comprehend. With all this anti-corporation backlash are people trying to embrace their inner conspicuous consumer (thanks Thorstein Veblen - I have yet to read you!)? My emotions are in a severe flux right now. Should I be happy and buy one to promote my employers and suggest a new McDonald's uniform consisting of these cute shirts - or should I fight this trend with every fibre in my body? After all, the beef patties are a strange shade of grey and we are one of the most wasteful and environmentally unfriendly fast food restaurants in the biz. You could feed NYC's homeless population with the amount of food we waste. We don't even recycle! Oh dear monotheistic deity, I am ever so torn!
