Outbreaks and Me

So I had totally forgotten, but I was in Windsor the week in March of 1996 when the British government shut down all consumption of beef because of Mad Cow Disease. All the fast food restaurants across from the castle closed for a day or two while they removed all their beef products and replaced them with fish and chicken. And the day before, I had been to McDonalds (please don’t tell anyone about my secret MickeyD’s cheeseburger cravings) and the paper placemats in the trays displayed how proud they were to be using all local ingredients.

Oh the irony.

I’m surprised that I wasn’t in Asia for the Avian Flu.
