Love the smell of fast food?

Ganked from another forum----

This quote was posted on Morgan Spurlock's website after Super Size Me came out. It's from his new book, Don't Eat This Book:

Quote:
I used to work in a funeral home, and one night I was down in the morgue when I was summoned to the crematorium. When I got there, I saw the embalmer standing in the door of the crematorium holding a fire extinguisher. As soon as he saw me he told me to run back downstairs and grab some sheets or hospital gowns. So as I'm heading downstairs I feel strangely hungry, which is not a feeling you usually get working in a funeral home. I grab a stack of hsopital gowns and run back to the crematorium.

What happened was this morbidly obese gentleman was so big that his fat was melting off faster than the machine could burn it up. Having worked in a funeral home for a while, I have smelled some hellacious things and know it helps not to pay attention to what I am smelling. But this actually smelled... familiar, and slightly appetising. As I was walking out of the crematorium, I realized exactly what it smelled like - all that melted human fat smelled exactly like the inside of a McDonald's.

I just wanted to clarify that this came from a diet-ers forum.. one of those motivations to avoid eating fast food

During high school, I worked in a McDonalds. Let me tell you, draining the fry vat and grease trap, and disposing of the grease was the absolute worst job they could give you. Worse than cleaning the bathrooms!

If they burned me up I'd smell like Ben and Jerry's.
