It will be interesting to see if any of the money-hungry lawyers who are smacking their lips at the prospects of suing Burger King, McDonald’s and other fast food chains for contributing to the ill health (obesity) of Americans, also target a great musician like the late Fred Waring in their attempt to pick the pockets of these companies.

For several years Fred Waring and his Pennsylvanians were featured on a half-hour, national radio show sponsored by the American Meat Institute which opened and closed with a harmonious salute to Beef:

Good health, good joy, good songs abound

whenever we gather to eat,

and all the family’s sitting around,

and on the table Meat…and on the table Meat.
