Fake Grill Marks on Food!

I don't know which of the many, many new meds I am on is giving me such fits but I feel like I'm revved up on about 20 espressos and my head is hurting so bad! Waaaa!

What I want to know is, why do they put fake grill marks on food? Is it to make you think it's been actually grilled over some fire on a fancy barbeque? And what are those fancy grill marks made out of? Discarded 10W40 from Jiffy Lube? Do little Keebler elves paint those stripes individually with a brush dipped in 'grill juice'? Or is it as I imagine, just some greasy-greasy conveyer belt down by the quay, leaving it's filthy footprint upon my food?

Here's Mackie having a rare snooze. He's cute, but don't touch the pads of his rhythmical feet. CHOMP!
