Considering 1/4 lb of good quality ground beef from the grocery store costs more than a burger from McD/BK/Wendy's, you shouldn't be surprised in panel 4. I know it's often not an option, but I'd rather grill my own burger on the back porch any day of the week.
I appreciated the effort put into the joke for panel 3. I've eaten a lot of fries so seasoned.
ook me a while, but I figured it out.
Initially Missy seemed skeptical about where Scott had gone to lunch. By the end of the strip, she was distracted into being skeptical of Scott's humor. Perhaps he *did* try too hard, but still, Scott's wordplay appears to have been successful.
What do you eat during a hunger strike?'Fast' food.

Hilarious, as usual!
Reminds me of something my ex-husband used to say: if you see a sign for "Mom's home cooking," it probably means that's where she is: at home, cooking.
Never eat at a place called "Mom's."Never play cards with a man named "Doc."Never put your tallywhacker in crazy.
Rules to live by.
Oh, and good food is much cheaper than fast food. You just have to observe some of the economy of scale, the same way the fast food "restaurant" does: a quarter pound of good ground beef is more expensive than a quarter pounder, but only when you're buying it by the quarter pound. They buy it by the ton. Buy yours in 5 or 10 lb chubs, and all of a sudden, it's MUCH cheaper than a quarter pounder (and better to boot).

You pay more than $12 a pound for ground beef? Really?
Sometimes the only fun in a meal is inventively making fun *of* it.

In the larger picture, isn't that really what every Basic Instructions is teaching us? Capital.
