Hardee's is an American restaurant chain so inappropriate it makes a vomitorium seem sensible. The only way to make a Hardee's location more decadent would be to have a solid titanium location in the grotto of the Playboy Mansion. Proof follows.
Hardee's has a "sibling" company named Carl's Jr., whose heritage to the world also involves embarrassing physiques and cardiac issues. One can only imagine the "parent" company whose cycle of abuse created the coast-to-coast availability of a fish-and-chips basket with 80 grams of fat. I don't know much -- but it's not their fault.
While researching for this article, I gave Hardee's the benefit of the doubt. I said to myself "Hardee's, as anyone else, operates in the physical world whereupon only x amount of fat can go into y amount of space." This statement reveals how terrifyingly naive I am. The "char-broiled burgers" average 597 calories, 44 grams of fat, and 15 grams of saturated fat. U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!
Hardee's, in 1996, was sued by America's sweetheart Wilford Brimley. Brimely claimed the chain unlawfully used his likeness in 17 television commercials. Hardee's settled out of court and the settlement check was delivered to Brimley at little or no cost to him.
