Hardees says: Screw You!

Written by Mark Van Steenwyk : November 17, 2004

Hardees just rolled out (perhaps literally) a 1,420 calorie burger, in spite of the current trends towards a kinder, gentler, approach within the fast food industry.  I’m torn.  Part of me is disgusted.  If you’ve seen Super-Size Me and had any sympathy for the cause of the movie, then you’d be disgusted too.  However, another part of me is like, "Ha! Way to go, Big H! Way to stick it to the MAN (who I guess would be Ronald McDonald)."  There is something inspiring about Hardees intentionally cranking out its Monster ThickBurger (two one-third-pound slabs
of Angus beef, four strips of bacon, three slices of cheese and
mayonnaise on a buttered sesame seed bun) while the other guys are cutting back amidsts fears of litigation and angry consumers. 

*warning, blatantly obvioius analogy ahead*

You know, we can learn alot from our friends over at Hardees.  In a world where fatty burgers are beginning to be despized, Hardees gets fatter.  They are making their stand on the fattest burger of which they could conceive.  We, the church, need to make our stand as well.  As popular opinion and sentiment begin to errode at the church, we need to take a stand.  We need to be the fattest, greasiest, bacon-iest, most caloric church we can be.
