Yeah, but do you think he got a percentage? He was just some sad-ass in the basement of McDonalds, makin' up some shiat to make some money from the real players. It ain't about right, it's about money. You think Ronald McDonald gonna go down in that basement and say, "Hey, Mr. Quarter Pounder, you da bomb. We sellin' quarter pounders faster than you can tear the meat off the bone. So I'm gonna write my clowny-ass name on this fat ass check for you"?

Is it really an 'invention' to measure out a quarter of a pound of meat?

Hey this normal cheeseburger isn't cutting it. Let's add more meat. Goddamn. I just "invented" the quarter pounder! What else can I invent today? Hey, this normal size fries isn't cutting it. Get a bigger box and add more fries. Goddamn, I just invented large fries!

I am sure it is more than that. He most likely voided his bowels of several quarter pounders.

Who invented the double quarter pounder? Now that guy revolutionized the fast food world.

*Side note question: Who here would eat something called a McGobbler?

I think the story got the headline wrong. I'm sure it was supposed to read:

Al Bernardin, inventor of the Quarter Pounder, dies at Store 81.

elvisaintdead: Everybody knows McD's fries are heavenly....

that's a joke, right? They turn into unpalatable mush the second you put vinegar on them.

/give me fries made from real deep fried freshly cut potatoes please

Goodbye burger guy.
 
2010-01-01 10:56:33 PM
His name was Bernardin and the original McDonald's was in San Bernardino. In 'n Out FTW.
 
2010-01-01 11:00:38 PM
Bah, the real genius is the guy who decided to put thousand island dressing secret sauce on a burger.
 
2010-01-01 11:05:04 PM
FTA " Bernardin said his most important contribution to fast-food fare is the frozen french fry.

'Before that, the (restaurants) had to store potatoes in the basement," Mark Bernardin said. "It was a real pain.'"

Thanks. Thanks a ton for that, buddy.

Someone needs to move In N Out eastward about 3K miles. THOSE were good fries.
 
2010-01-01 11:06:15 PM
RIP Quarter Pounder Man. Every time I go to McDonalds, I get a Quarter Pounder. Not often, but every farkin' time.

Though there's a recent NY Times article about ammonia-soaked beef which may have ended my beef-eating days.

stables? "menu stables"? Doesn't the author mean STAPLES?

radioman_: And how many people did he kill with that salt-laden repository of grease and gristle?

0 people. He did beat someone into an inch of their life, armed with only a Big Mac, but they had it comin'. He ain't never killed no one with a burger.

radioman_: You have to really hate yourself to eat at McDonald's.

No. You have to hate food to eat at McDonald's. Because they certainly don't serve any.

In-N-Out is BEST BURGER EVAR!

I am not kidding, I hate fast food, In-N-Out is like homemade burgers & fries. And they pay & treat their employees well.

I think we have direct confirmation that McDonald's serves horse.

jaytkay: In-N-Out is BEST BURGER EVAR!

Lark Tavern in Albany, NY, begs to differ. The perfect burger to go with a beer and cajun-seasoned sweet potato fries. Still haven't found a place that matches up to that, although the Sharp Edge in Pittsburgh comes close. And they have much better beer selections.

Failure to understand sarcasm is a sign of mental deficiency. Not to mention it makes you an uptight dullard.

Good luck with that.

Yeah, I misspoke, I should have written best "BEST CHAIN BURGER EVAR".
