Does Your Food Taste Better if It's Patriotic?

I went through the drive-thru at a fast food place this morning. I had eaten breakfast before we left for work, but it didn't completely eradicate the hunger, and this place was on the way to my school. As I was driving off, I noticed on one of the restaurant windows an American flag and the words "One nation under God, indivisible".

Huh? Why would you have that posted on a window of your restaurant? Are people supposed to see this phrase and visit because they think that patriotic food tastes better? What if it were a Chinese or Mexican restaurant instead of a burger joint? Would the food still be considered patriotic?

Hunger makes you think odd things...


  1. You live in Texas, though, don't you? Isn't that kind of the law there?

  2. It might be a law that the food has to be patriotic, indeed! But you would think that would only apply to food grown here, right?


I welcome comments, but reserve the right to correct your spelling because I am OCD about it!
