    I imagine the Canadians here may remember McDonald's foray in the pizza market. It wasn't that bad but they discontinued after a couple years.
    It is only the cynic who claims “to speak the truth” at all times and in all places to all men in the same way, but who, in fact, displays nothing but a lifeless image of the truth… He dons the halo of the fanatical devotee of truth who can make no allowance for human weaknesses; but, in fact, he is destroying the living truth between men. He wounds shame, desecrates mystery, breaks confidence, betrays the community in which he lives, and laughs arrogantly at the devastation he has wrought and at the human weakness which “cannot bear the truth”.

    “A” cannot be “A” & not “A” at the same time.

    I remember them here in the U.S. They weren't bad.

    Oh, they did sell in the US. Canada is often the test-bed before they roll out items across the chain, and I thought it stayed north of the border.

    Never saw it in Illinois. Chicagoland....we aren’t hurting for pizza.

    Yeah, four bucks for some chopped lettuce that looks like it's a couple of days old already. No thanks.

    Wendy’s chili is my favorite fast food. Unfortunately the closest one to me is about an hour away.

    I do remember they had them and I'm pretty sure I remember taco's and pasta.

    We used to shut down the superbar when the defensive line went there after football practice. AHhhh.. the good old days.

    For me, I'd nominate Burger King and KFC. BK used to have pretty good burgers, flame grilled right in front of you. Now they're about half the size and microwaved, as best as I can tell. As for KFC... I think they've tampered with the Colonel's recipe.

    What at do you say?
    One thing about BK is that our family no longer supports that franchise due to their pro-gay agenda, going so far as to offer the Rainbow Whopper and such.

    If there are other establishments that this forum members are aware of that promote Godless activities, we would be appreciative of knowing...

    Will also read the rest of the thread... likely to have had this query already covered...

    Prolly because we had so much less options... Heck, even the grocery store deli fried chicken is pretty darn good... and only $6.99 for an 8-piece (compared to KFC $12 for the same...)
