    The sub looks decent. Ugh. A lot of those are pretty bad. The hardended cheese is what gets me.

    I sometimes get sandwiches that look pretty good, but they usually look like the "reality" pictures on the link.

    I guess taste is what matters at fast food places. It's not about the presentation.

    Have you even seen how they prep the "food" for photo shoots and commercials? Paint, lacquer, glue, etc. Food magazines do the same thing.

    I guess if they took the time to make it look all nice it would become not-so-fast-food

    The KFC chicken bowl looked like it was about to sprout arms and begin jamming silly putty directly into my arteries.

    That KFC bowl looks gross no matter what they do to it.

    My friend's Dad is Italian, with a heavy accent and a humorous temper. I was with him once when he took a hamburger back at Burger King and demanded to have one that looked like the one on the poster. It was hysterical. Very "Paulie" like.

    I have ordered sandwiches before and requested that it look like it does on TV. They have come close now and then.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.
