Half-Assed Gourmet UPDATE

Recently I expressed my discomfort (“bitched” just sounds so inelegant) with McDonald's decision to slap mayonnaise—which has been classified as biohazardous material in half a dozen states—on it's chicken, cheddar, and onion sandwich. Well, you know me and my jet-setting active lifestyle. I visited McDonald's yet again last week and saw a huge picture of this particular entree above a menu. Yes, this photo made it pretty clear that there was some kind of weird sauce on the thing.

OK, so shame on me. But in my defense, I got the chicken sandwich at the drive-through, where 1) they didn't post that picture and 2) even if they did, I never would have seen it because of how they position the menus after the food-ordering speaker, making it impossible to peruse the offerings even when you don't have a line of hungry drivers behind you.

So what I'm trying to say here is, yes, I could have known this sandwich had mayonnaise it, but I didn't, and it's all McDonald's fault, and besides, why don't they make menus easier to read before you have to make your order?
