Sorry McDonald's, but Subway has you beat in one area.   (©zyphbear)

(Newser) – McDonald’s may be just about as American as apple pie, but when it comes to global dominance, Subway wins. The sandwich chain has passed Mickey D’s to become the world’s largest restaurant chain, the Wall Street Journal reports. At the close of 2010, Subway’s worldwide locations numbered 33,749, compared to 32,737 McDonald’s, a spokesperson says. In response, a McD’s rep says, “We remain focused on listening to and serving our customers, and are committed to being better, not just bigger.”

I like Subway. For the most part, I'm pretty satisfied when I go. Dinner for less than $7 and more than enough to eat? Yes, please. However, I have to admit it got dangerous when I started getting meatball subs with pepperoni. That trend had to stop quickly.

I don't get it, morons. Why do you even go eat out to any restaurant, ever ? Can't you fucking stay at home and cook and eat your own shit and thus get rich without splurging your money at those freedumb genocide glutting gatherings where you only whine about how expensive everything is, call me engenius ?

How about starting not going there, slowly, to make ourselves the No.1 Fast Food Chain in the World, and an instant classic ? ! We will be a healthier nation, and these junk food warlords will be finished off, only to cater to our wholesome diet, gratis.
