    Mega in Greek just means large.

    Would a french fry be a ‘ten kilo meal’?

    Sounds more like an argument that Jason would make.

    It’s not common knowledge, but all fast-food franchises have special rules for whenever they open up in the Fox neighborhood.

    In the US, 1 kcal is confusingly referred to as 1 calorie. A megacalorie meal, in everyday US usage, would just be a 1000 calorie meal (or, more appropriately, a 1000 kcal meal) which is fairly reasonable for a burger, fries, and soda.

    Roger, if they were to give out a million items, they’d be shut down for causing so many deaths of their customers.

    At 1 second per item, he’d be waiting over 11 days. Of course, eating the items as they arrived, he’d probably like that.

    And it shows you actually were paying attention in math class, so I’m sure your teacher will be proud of that much. Probably.

    Just be thankful it’s not an “ultimate” combo.

    So, does a Mega Million Lottery Ticket mean you have to by a million tickets in order to win one US Dollar ????

    I figured it meant the number of grams of salt.

    Andy is rubbing off on him (for those who don’t know, Andy majored in English at college).

    He didn’t use “mega” as a prefix, he used it as a word; and as a word it means very large.

    If I’m making the decision to eat at “fast food” joints to partake of deep-fried sides, grease-dripping burgers, and lethally-sweetened beverages, do you REALLY think I’m concerned about caloric intake…?? (To know me is to love me… and worry somewhat about my mortality…)

    After 6 days, this burger is messed up with rotten tomatoes and wilted lettuce, not to mention cold. Fix me up with two fresh ones, or I’ll call the health department.

    I have a similar complaint about “Shark Tank”.

    Me (to the crew of the show): Your show is called “Shark Tank”, yet it doesn’t teach the viewers anything about sharks. It’s about budding entrepreneurs launching their products. It seems to me that truth-in-advertising laws require this show to teach people the truth about sharks and other misunderstood and persecuted species (the aye-aye lemur, for instance).

    “Shark Tank” crew: The name actually refers to the risk of starting a business; we’ve likened it to getting into a tank of sharks.

    Me: That makes the title even more misleading and insulting, because it overlooks the fact that humans are at fault, not sharks. Humans are the ones who build these tanks and capture sharks to keep in them as aquarium exhibits. Humans kill more sharks per day—per minute, in fact—than sharks kill humans per year, not counting bycatch.

    Truth-in-advertising laws, unfortunately, don’t apply to book, movie, or TV show titles, or to people’s names.
