grease is in the air

Congrats and lucky you: Orlando has been named Fast Food Capital of the United States. PROUD, PROUD MOMENT. I'm wiping away a tear. No wait, that's ranch dressing.

The Daily Beast compiled a list of the top 40 fast-food-chain-havin' cities by comparing number of fast-food outlets to population, so rest assured: We EARNED it. This is no vanity title, y'all!

Total fast food restaurants: 463

Fast food restaurants per 100,000 residents: 196.3

Most prominent chain: Subway

"Subway," you're thinking. "Why, that's health food."
