That Soylent Green moment

Consider this:

In the US alone, they operate over 40,000 restaurants, each selling an average of 300 burgers per day. That’s 1.2 million burgers, every single day. Even holidays.

How many burgers can one cow make? Let’s be generous and assume 100 patties. That means, every single day, they get through 12,000 cows. Every year, that makes 4.3 million cows.

That’s a lot of cows. More cows than I’ve seen anywhere. I’d be willing to bet that’s more cows than even Wyoming has.

And then, you have to consider how many competitors they have. Each of them, all going through cows at a similar rate. Continental America would have to be three feet deep in cows to support this. And where are you getting your milk from, even if you manage to wade through these cows? Did it cost more than its weight in gold?

At this point, it would be foolish to suggest that perhaps they get their meat from…. other sources. And very litigious.

But it would make a certain amount of sense.

Would you like fries with that?
