Re: "Let them eat cake!!!"
Dunno if you've read Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman's book Good Omens have you?
They bring up exactly what you are talking about there. The characterization of famine was pretty proud of himself.
As for myself, stopped at a good restaurant a few years ago where they served real hamburgers, with good fries and excellent shakes. never been able to stomach fast food since.
Mostly it's convenience, you can stop by a burger joint, pick up a burger and keep moving. if you wanted a decent meal, you generally need to stop and sit, or pay more.
You're local working country boy.
