Fast Food Locator

As if we need yet another helpful way to make us fatter in America, the not-so-kind folks over at have put together a Google Earth map detailing the locations of nearly 50,000 fast food restaurants in the United States.

Simply select your state and city and up pops a map (road or satellite) pinpointing McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Burger King, Taco Bell, KFC, Pizza Hut, and other artery clogging restaurants in your neighborhood.

When I selected Los Angeles, the number which popped up on the screen was overwhelming, like an invasion of some mutant disease. Ugh! Perhaps as a public service, FastFoodMaps should also include the location of nearby health clubs and gyms on their maps as well.
