Oh, the shame. And this from someone who on the whole liked his visit to Disney World:

"'I'm sick of seeing huge arses everywhere,' says Elaine, as we leave Fantasmic! and take the long walk back to the shuttle bus.

'And most of the people in wheelchairs aren't even disabled,' I say. 'They're just lazy.'

This is true. Scores of wholly able-bodied people rent wheelchairs at the entrance gates, purely because they can't be bothered to walk. They wheel themselves to McDonald's, jump out, eat burgers, slide back into their wheelchairs, and wheel themselves onwards."

I have just read Fast Food Nation. So there is some small satisfaction in knowing that these fat-assed, bastard disabled-impersonators are what they eat. In a line from the book the author Eric Schlosser writes, "There has been a huge rise in food poisoning in the USA with 200,000 cases reported every day. The medical literature is full of euphemisms and dry scientific terms… Behind them lies a simple explanation for why eating a hamburger can now make you seriously ill: there is shit in the meat."
