The UK town of Bridgend in south Wales is weighing a proposal to create a half-mile footpath -- dubbed the McPath -- that would link a school with a local branch of McDonald's.
Naturally, the proposed trail of fries has generated a fair amount of controversy. According to the Guardian:
The children seem keen but the champions of health eating are less so. For a local authority is considering building a half-mile footway that will link a school with a McDonald's restaurant used by scores of pupils every day.
Inevitably nicknamed McPath, the link between the school and the burger bar could cost up to £100,000.
Supporters say it will create a safe route to the McDonald's and also to a residential area. Critics, however, believe it could prompt more pupils to shun healthy school meals in favour of burgers, chips and fizzy drinks.
