REALITY BITES

Ever notice how things never look in real life the way they do in advertisements? Mainly fast food. Perfect buns, perfect grill marks, every condiment showing. Little beads of water on the lettuce and tomatoes. It's all the hard work of food stylists. Yeah, people actually get paid to do that for a living.

Liz sent me a link to a page that shows fast food items from advertisements and compares them to the real deal. Whoppers, McMuffins, Big Macs. Below is the Arby's Beef n Cheddar sandwich. Pretty sad looking, isn't it?

Now I would like to invite you all to go to the next blog and comment as much as you can, to show Pete the real reason why the cheese steak blogs were getting so much response (besides Dave's excellent writing ability)
