Happiness could be found in fast food places,
But someone ought to put the cooks through their paces,
Because most certainly they'll rue the day
When customers, clear-headed, stay away.
"woe" 悲哀；災難。"pace" 步速；進度。"put someone/something through paces" 測試某人/ 某物的能力。"rue" 後悔；悲哀。
There's salt enough on french fries to rival the Dead Sea,
And the meat in chicken nuggets is gray and lumpy.
Warm vanilla milkshakes are truly disgusting;
They're carefully capped to trick the trusting.
"rival" 與...匹敵；比得上。" disgusting " 令人作嘔的；可憎的。"trusting" 信任的；the trusting 輕易信任別人的那些人。
The worst, of course, are the deaths.
Undercooked hamburgers have caused quite a mess.
I'll stay with McDonald's, shun Jack in the Box;
I'll keep the fries—the rest isn't much of a loss.
"mess" 混亂；一團糟。"shun" 躲開；迴避。
In 1993, hundreds of people were injured and four children died after eating at Jack in the Box restaurants. The primary cause of the outbreak was adulterated hamburger patties manufactured and sold to the restaurant chain by one of its suppliers.
註：由於1993年發生的大腸桿菌食物中毒事件，讓本文作者對Jack in the Box餐館心有餘悸，這完全是作者個人的看法。我卻蠻喜歡他們的起司漢堡,值得推薦給大家。
The Ultimate Cheeseburger offered by Jack in the Box won the 2005-2006 and 2006-2007 Golden Icon Awards for "Best Burger"; the Golden Icon Awards are presented annually by Travolta Family Entertainment.
