    Prince Charles says ban McDonald's food

    LONDON -Prince Charles suggested Tuesday on a visit to the United Arab Emirates that banning McDonald's fast food was crucial for improving people's diets, a British news agency reported.

    Charles made the comments while visiting the Imperial College London Diabetes Center in Abu Dhabi for the launch of a public health campaign, The Press Association reported.

    "Have you got anywhere with McDonald's? Have you tried getting it banned? That's the key," Charles was quoted as asking one of the center's nutritionists.

    A McDonald's spokesman, Nick Hindle, called the remark disappointing. He said other members of the royal family "have probably got a more up-to-date picture of us," alluding to reports that Charles' son, Prince Harry, was spotted eating a chicken burger at McDonald's in 2005.

    I wonder if England will be as successful initiating that ban as it was initiating the ban on dentists.

    Just one more attempt by the Brits to ban the one bit of food in their country that actually tastes good. :)

    Chuck probably saw that 218-pound 8-year-old on the telly this week.

    Alley's right, Britain is hardly renowned for its food - no matter what Gordon Fucking Ramsay thinks - so for Brits McD's is the closest they get to haute cuisine.

    Gotta love Chuck. If there's any way he can get his size 12 shoe in his mouth, he'll manage it.

    I'm not all about banning McDonald's, but couldn't the FDA (or the British equivalent) set standards that would force them to serve burgers made of better, healthier meat (you know, no cardboard filler and shit like that)?

    If not that, the ears are sizable enough.

    Like father, like son.

    Is there anyone on TV who deserves a kick in the face with a steel-toed boot more than Gordon Fucking Ramsay?
