The Fast Food Diet Death Watch: Baskin-Robbins Founder Dies

by | 6th, May 2008

ronald_mcdonald.jpgTHE heroes of junk food are dying out. After keeping an eye out through a tense April and finding no further calamities, we were eager to close the book on yet another “coincidence”.

Writes Tabolid Baby, Anorak’s man in LA:

Weeks after the death of Herb Peterson, inventor of the Egg McMuffin, and following the passings in rapid and unexplained succession of Carl Carcher of Carl’s Jr. (January 11); Lovie Yancie of Fatburger (January 23), and Popeye’s Famous Fried Chicken founder Al Copeland, (March 23) we learn that Irvine “Irv” Robbins, co-founder of the Baskin-Robbins ice cream chain, has died in Rancho Mirage, California.

Not one was offed by their food inventions. No small achievement.

This weekend Anorak will be paying its respects to the founding fathers of fast food at a memorial service at the Brixton McDonald’s, where to save time – because what is food but time consuming? – we will mix the entire menu up in a food blender and drink it.

The party wiil then move on to the nearest hospital for a ritual stomach pumping and prayer…
