Thirty years after health activists in Perth gained notoriety by spraying graffiti on cigarette billboards, fast food has become the new target of a consumer backlash.Hey, at least they only want advertising restricted. I mean, once they have that, they'll be perfectly satisfied. Yep.

Only a fool would think otherwise, eh?
