The most popular fast-food chain in the world is opening up a new restaurant in London just to accomodate the Olympic games this summer, and while it will be made out of 100% recyclable materials, the decision to keep it open only for the six weeks of the games is a questionable one; they'll be open from late July to September 9th.

Because of the huge crowd the Olympics are expected to draw, the hamburger joint will be the largest in the world, measuring in at a staggering 1,500 seats and employing 2,000 people.

With all the negative attention McDonald's has garnered in recent years--being linked to childhood obesity and health problems in adults--the idea that they are sponsoring the Olympic games is viewed as laughable by some. And the news that they are opening such a huge restaurant for only six weeks has some people scratching their heads.
