in thread The best thing about whoppers is...

I wonder if by "every seventeen hours" the author means "for seventeen hours each day". Are there really McDonald's across the world flinging their doors open once every seventeen hours? If she's referring to separate McDonald's across the world, what's the significance of any two McDonald's restaurants being seventeen time zones apart?

    I believe she meant that at the time the song was written, new McDonalds were opening at a rate of almost 500 a year, or every 17 hours.
