The scene that caught my attention the most involved Morgan interviewing the young children. His interview consisted of him showing the children several photographs and asking them to identify the individuals shown. Shockingly (or maybe not so much) the children were unable to identify historical figures like George Washington or Jesus, but all knew the face of Ronald McDonald.
The scene showed in a very convincing way exactly how addicted the nation is to fast food. Children are more familiar with a food service mascot than with the first president of the country they live in. The image of McDonald's is so ingrained in their minds that it is no wonder why they become so comfortable with eating the food, even if they know the inherent risks when the grow up. The interview proves Morgan's idea that fast food has become such a huge part of our culture that we don't care if it kills us, as long as we can satisfy our craving for it.
