Are you hungry for some meaty text on art?

Art is where you find it. The McDonald's/dialysis sign has amazed me since I first spotted it several years ago. Does the McDonald's home office know about it? Somehow you'd think they wouldn't be so keen... It's been around for a while in Zion Crossroads, Virginia, just down the road from a giant Walmart distribution center. And now it's even better post-BP oil spill, a trifecta of synchronicity. Polluted bodies, polluted waters, polluted food.

And then there's the Washington D. C. snack truck sign that Megan made me take a picture of -- a great example of pop folk art.

  1. so ironic.
    I suppose if you were a devoted and patriotic Fast Food Nation-ite, it might prove handy to have a dialysis center in such close proximity to the feeding trough.
