You Write The Headline...

You know the drill, leave your best headline to this post, and this afternoon I'll pick the best one and update the post title (and mention the winner). The post is in the extended entry.

Update: Maura nailled it, now the story is posted in full here, with her headline.

The Post:

Talk about disingenuousness...

CHICAGO (Reuters) - McDonald's Corp., the world's largest fast-food company, on Thursday launched an anti-obesity education campaign that it said would promote the importance of exercise and a balanced lifestyle.

The company, whose Big Macs and super-size french fries have drawn criticism for promoting obesity, said it is "committed to playing a responsible and active role" in solving the U.S. obesity problem. Some two-thirds of Americans are overweight.
I doubt that the cornerstone of the campaign will be a "don't eat at McDonald's" theme. See the recent documentary Super Size Me for a humorous look at McDonald's commitment to anti-obesity.
