John Oliver's New Confederate Flag Proposal
Satirical news comedy has become something of a mainstream source of information in the modern world. The following burger on a white background flag was created on HBO's John Oliver weekly show. It features a Carl's Jr. burger with a hot dog and potato chips. After viewing the commercial for the protein pounding snack, John Oliver joking presents it as the new American Confederate flag.
In this episode Mr. Oliver points out that nearly a quarter of the food produced in the United States is thrown away by businesses and people. Note that wasting food is also wasting oil, labor costs, and business expenses that are used in producing food. It really is an obscene process that is essentially throwing money into a dump.
