“I'm a neighborhood-bar kind of guy, anyway. I'd just as soon have a hamburger and fries as have a steak or a fancy meal. I like to be around people I consider my friends, and I've made a lot of friends in my four years here.”
“I'm not telling you, 'Never eat a hamburger.' Just eat the good ones with real beef, you know, like the ones from that mom-and-pop diner down the street, ... And it's so good that when you take a bite out of that burger, you just know somewhere in the world a vegan is crying.”
“The way you can go to Paris or Beijing and everywhere there's a McDonald's hamburger, this is the ecological quivalent of franchised life-forms. Every place is the same place. Kudzu. Zebra Mussels. Water Hyacinths. Starlings. Burger Kings.
The local natives, anything unique gets squeezed out.
The only biodiversity we're going to have left is Coke versus Pepsi.
We're landscaping the whole world one stupid mistake at a time.”
