If this does not make sense, stay with it. But if you somehow think that I am making a "top-five list," you would be badly mistaken. To begin, the whole concept of fast food—from architecture to product—is part of what has haunted the second half of the twentieth century (and beyond...like disco, but more lasting). Nope, this is just "cultural observation.

If you think that I am honoring fast food or making a "best" list, please know that I am not. Go back and look at the introduction to this series to get a feel for yin-yang, five-phase cosmology.
Nope, these are the Five Fast Food Restaurants. As a totality, they are "fast food restaurants." That is what the cosmologist Robert André LaFleur maintains, at least. I welcome your comments and additions, below (but these are still the Five Fast Food Restaurants).
Remember, together they form the idea "fast food restaurants."
If this doesn't make sense...go back and read the introduction and the links!

Discuss. Just don't eat the food.
Just like Dong Zhongshu and Lü Buwei, I don't give my reasons (I don't need no stinkin' reasons).* I am well, a...sort of...cosmologist. My choices should be "self-evident," but the whole point of this Round and Square series is to get a little opinion moving.
*But even I sense the omission of Popeye's (a little bit of "seafood")...and Subway.
And, yes, several of the "illustrations" didn't make the cut.
Feel free to comment and disagree (politely, gracefully...as though you were raised in North Dakota, on the lapping banks of the Red River).
