Names changed to protect the innocent in this #geekzone (DALnet) chat log.
Geeks need to know about fast food goodness and badness!
Note I have not done any further research into the authenticity of this info, or the linked article. So take it with a grain of salt, 6 grams of fat, or an artificial char grill mark....

[12:37] <N> oooo subway made me full
[12:38] <M> you need a bigger stomach
[12:38] <N> or a smaller sub
[12:39] <N> no, your right, i need a bigger stomach
[12:41] <F> No, not subway... Neither KFC.
[12:42] <F> Actually, you know the "eat fresh" stuff? I was reading Business 2.0 how companies "pre-cook" chicken fillets by dipping into a sauce, baking with hot air, then putting those "chargrill" marks with electronics things... And Subway uses them... yes, eat fresh...
[12:44] <F> ooops. Make it "Fast company":
[12:44] <F> http://www.fastcompany.com/magazine/106/next-mystery.html
[12:44] <F> .
[12:44] <F> .
[12:44] <F> "Subway's slogan is "Eat Fresh"--but order the Grilled Chicken Breast and Baby Spinach Salad, and you'll get defrosted, precooked chicken strips that have been mechanically branded at a factory to look like they're hot off the grill. Which isn't quite the same thing. "
[12:45] <F> .
[12:45] <F> .
[12:45] <F> .
[12:45] <M> hehe
[12:45] <M> a new subway opend just up the road from me
[12:46] <M> i live in the ghetto
[12:46] <F> .
[12:46] <F> And they smell awful... Sorry, BK is much better!

Gee subway... whats with the advertising then? I hope a complaint is made to the BSA about this (but not by me, because I am far too apathetic to back up my rants with real action).

Look at any "chargrilled" chicken product or sausages on the market and you'll find the chargrilling is all done the same fake way!

I think its actually a "relativity" thing...

if you compare what subway do with their chicken, versus say, mc'ds or kfc,

I think you will find the subway stuff looks so fresh its clucking and laying eggs...

I worked at McD's and Subway, trust me Subway is very healthy. Once you;ve seen how McD's is made you never eat there again

This is however.
