Stay Classy America

I've been particularly interested in billboards and other forms of advertising over the years.  They illustrate our increasingly unhealthy relationship to food in this country. Take this recent offering from 14th and Valencia.
In other words, you might feel like shit for eating to your little hearts content, but don't worry about it. You can just drink this magical liquid and gorge yourself closer to your inevitable death without the pesky side effect of physical sickness. You've tried to eat well and it just doesn't work. Oh well. A few blocks down the road you will see another billboard that will make you feel bad about your body. At least it doesn't feel like there are knives ripping into your gut.
