Here, I’ve been pottering around on the ‘net looking for pictures of food today and I came across a lovely photo of a hospital burger, fries, and mashed potato with gravy. I thought to myself, well, hospital food seems to be coming up in the world. Burgers? Fries? In a HOSPITAL?
I assume it’s some kind of anti-health campaign which is designed to get more out of the customer’s pocket. Quite a devious ploy if you ask me.
And on the other hand.. Burgers… Fries… in a HOSPITAL! Whoopteedoo!! I’m going be asking for the triple-bypass burger when I go in for my triple bypass. Seriously.
But then I continued my research and found that actually, good meals are very hard to come across in hostpitals, and have been since the ’40′s.
I think there’s plenty of room for improvement but things are getting better. I mean, there’s all sorts of vending machines in hospitals these days. You can always ask the nurse to grab you a few twinkies or, if you’re a good little soldier perhaps they’ll sneak downstairs to the McDonald’s which so many hospitals have nowadays.
Well on with the visual rapery which is… HOSPITAL FOOD!
