We know particularly when it comes to junk food advertising aimed at children it does have an effect on the type of food they want to -- But will the IO CIO.

British -- what they think about -- we -- that.
-- -- -- you kids in your twilight.

It's like why can't parents just do their job you're gonna be there with your kids control what they eat if they -- to go to Mickey -- making his salad if you want -- to eat healthy I just don't understand why.
Parents get thrown out and instead we look at -- -- -- everything and if they want companies that promote healthy eating.

-- Donald should be banning the Olympics.
Because we don't has done more out for the world to the Olympics ever happened I wanna give you just two words describe the inherent destructiveness of the Olympics.
Okay since the -- had you seen what Bruce Jenner looks like.
It's not greedy -- McDonald's has never done anything like that to anybody at any look at each and generally you'll get anybody from the Olympics.
They don't age well.
Food that McDonald's you can eat whenever you want you could stop beating it but once again the Olympics you're done it's almost like over training your body at a young age is bad for you and and you get back.
Look at football players all -- that can you be eating 6000 calories today now for twenty years all of a sudden you your -- band and all you can do -- eat McDonald's.
McDonald's is the greatest -- of the greatest company ever.
And it brings so much happiness to the world.
Where everything socks and bring happiness to your intestinal tract does while.
Cook -- I wouldn't call it happiness I would call I didn't let it agreed to feeling that -- exactly -- and I -- smuggler that -- Out of control mixture of -- -- the junk food.
Can we just end this whole idea that there's such exempted -- all food junk food.
Not to go now it's not healthy food actual lines.
You lot of them now you did you get on cares if it.
Someone stabs you with a really sharp one yes yeah that's that's true -- -- bottom because market time bill accidentally fell one yeah.
Yes boy I'd like -- have every weekend.
Accident brought something that a million to one shot it really does -- area that you cover festival -- -- yeah -- say your full vitamin C.
-- billion -- watching the games this year and if so will you be enjoying them whilst eating a big Mac and drinking large -- don't own a TV please don't rub it and secondly this is not about calories this is not about junk food this is not about any of the things the stupid stupid table set.
Let's look at the facts the London assembly protest of this -- -- protest in mixed.
What do you red headed to Matt's got.
That's all it needed to know and further -- -- that it's all about the troubles not about it's not about the troubles it's about.
The troubles and secondly added that it is not yes the parents job is to help the kids but also as an American it's also the parent's right to not do their job I've got three illegitimate kids.
Apple that they wanna be a beast I tried earlier when I didn't buying food they went the other way that's there -- channel to your.
-- -- Jake -- -- the Olympics start later this month.
Probably a little late to be calling for a ban on sponsor right.
How typical one of these things together a plan I think you know now I think more than ten -- -- adopt the.
It did this is a bunch of politicians sitting right.
Saying oh we're gonna get some free publicity and make everyone think we're good human being so let's do -- even though we know nothing can hamper I have to campaign for the Olympics it's not like they just hand that over right you know -- -- -- it isn't going to be a good.
-- -- Is it going to be in Atlanta you don't know what's gonna be until there's a huge campaign in big money is spent to get actual little.
You know the real winners in this story is it's the writers afford were writing these articles you get to use phrases like.
McDonald's may be left at the starting blocks yeah that was in the article that I gotta pick and quietly against her like this they just all the -- all the Olympic -- start sneaking their way and articles and making you want to vomit now I don't like the Olympics I don't I'd.
I don't like athletes.
They don't like I don't like I'm elected as athletes -- -- that's not done that is to I don't hire them as that apple has -- -- as well we are inside.
Ancient Greek media -- that is to really get a guy.
How about that how about McDonald's and -- say fine we're not gonna sponsor the Olympics anymore and guess what.
This will be the last Olympics then they lose a whole lot of cash and we probably don't -- and pixel exactly exactly what happened I wonder what other companies to their looking at a campus in mcdonalds and -- there are other companies that make foods that maybe aren't so great for use them probably right of the worst in on the show we focus on some.
-- to the big boys exactly Ashley -- We got -- I think sadly no idea behind the Olympics.
McDonald's -- creative industry and -- failures.
