Barcelona Fast Food: Supersize Me

Barcelona Fast Food: Supersize me

This is what happens when you don´t follow a Mediterranean diet, fast food or junk food kills you. Walking down Las Ramblas I came across another street artist who was distractedly talking to a friend during a break. Probably he/she enjoyed watching the Supersize Me documentary by Morgan Spurlock. It must be quite an uncomfortable outfit to wear anyhow. Just one more anonymous history of sacrifice to make ends meet in Barcelona.

    Great picture. Junk food kills, absolutely.

  3. Thanks Kris and Luggi. I don´t have anything against people having fast food, but some people do so I think is worth mentioning.

  4. Interesting Photo. Although, I do eat junk food some times. I think the moderation is key. Good shot!

  5. Of course,moderation is key. Some big mac every once in a while are great!

  6. I live in Barcelona and them street artists make a FORTUNE! TAX FREE.

    never mind ¨Just one more anonymous history of sacrifice to make ends meet in Barcelona.¨

    The street artists make more money than you!

    It is not a protest about fast food its a guy wearing a fat woman costume in an attempt at humour!

  7. LOL. Are you sure they make more money than me Adam? Tax evasion aside, I think standing on the street for some hours one day here and the other in who knows what country, sleeping in a miserable room in Barri Gotic or El Raval is not funny. At least I wouldn't have the same humor that fat lady in the fat woman costume has. I mean, they are not Somalian kids dying of famine but working on the street is not precisely funny and comfortable, win they more money than many of us or not. Whores earn much more money than me and I think it is a life of sacrifice. But then again, I see what you mean. Thanks for making the point.
