The strangest thing happened tonight when I stopped by McDonald’s for a Filet’o’fish Sandwich (gotta eat healthy, you know). To wash it down I asked for a small coke.

So I got my sandwich and… a small Coke. Like, a Coke that was actually in a small cup. No kidding.

I’m used to “small” bring this relative concept wherein a large is actually huge, a medium is large, and a small is still actually about as big as a bottle. Instead, I asked for a small and I got a small.

    The Filet o’ Fish is deep fried, so I’m not sure it’s really all that healthy.

    I was attempting facetious, but believe it or not, the helping tarter sauce is worse for you (fat-wise) than the deep-fried patty (and, of course, the bun is worse carb-wise).

    That’s news to be about the tartar sauce, but it makes sense. It’s probably like salad dressings, which can convert an otherwise reasonably healthy item into an absolute minefield of fat and calories.
