Let Them Eat Cornish Pasties

Prince Charles made headlines earlier this week when he suggested to the staff of a diabetes clinic in Abu Dhabi that McDonald's fast food should be banned for health reasons. It turns out Charles knows a little something about selling food - he sells his own retail line of packaged organic foods. One interesting item is a Cornish pasty, which, as it turns out, has more fat, salt and calories than a Big Mac. The Evening Standard's graphic design people break it down for us:
Apparently the aura of hereditary monarchy makes the pasty fine for consumers, while the proletarian fare of McDonald's is designated a public health menace.
