that was the best food critique i have ever read. Usually you read all those snobby assholes making snobby, half witty, dumbass coments about the food.

but not this one buddy, this one was for us low-brow kinda people. I like it

/seriously

Ahh the McRib... too bad the animal that meat came from went extinct a few years ago... that was tasty... it had meat where bones were supposed to be... talk about efficiency.

So while they're lobbying Congress to limit lawsuits by fat cows who should have the jaws wired shut, the evil geniuses as McHeadquarters release this concoction. Riiiiight.

I am curious about these, but I've never liked mixing the pancakes with the eggs and bacon. I usually seperate the pancakes out, while enjoying the eggs, bacon, and toast randomly, then eat the pancakes as a kind of 'breakfast desert'. I am not a 'syrup on bacon' kinda guy.

However, last time I went to the MickeyD's near my house I got a fish filet sammich, and some freakshow put hamburger meat on it, with tartar sauce! so I am boycotting them for now.

eskobar: Either he fixed it recently, or you're just incapable of reading, because it now says "1270 MG," which is quite reasonable. However, the thought of 1270 G of sodium in anything but a bucket is pretty amusing.

Wow, in Holland they still have the McRib. Damn Dutch! But now what the hell is this:



pulling out dutch dictionary. . .

I'm surprised that no one has mentioned Fast Food Nation yet. You can always count on a FFN reference in these threads.
 
2003-07-03 07:14:38 PM
These things are pretty damn good actually. Use the wrapper to keep the grease off of your hands, and you're in business. Add the hashbrown and coffe to make it a little more heartstopping.

2003-07-03 07:16:10 PM
Oh ok, using my 1/2-azzed dutch skills, I think it's a veggieburger.

/confusion
 
2003-07-03 07:16:51 PM
Yes, Fnord, but how many hog heads is that?
 
2003-07-03 07:17:49 PM
Hollaback: Garden burger, perhaps?
 
2003-07-03 07:18:00 PM
Mmmmm, McRib.... Still available in the South. :-)
Probably the only McD's sammich that's nearly impossible to fark up.
 
2003-07-03 07:18:13 PM
I'm part dutch, and as such, can speak the language. Want to know what it says? "Make the woman pay for it."
 
2003-07-03 07:18:19 PM
I was upset with the multiple misuse of "intestinal track." Other than that, I'll try anything Rotten Ronnie's has to offer - as stated in the article, you can't say it's good or bad until you do.

Plus, I have the metabolism of a hummingbird...

Step 1: read Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosser
Step 2: never eat fast food again

Hollaback: Ahhh, now I'm missing the old McRib "sammich" that they tested here in New Jersey back in the late 80s/early 90s.

It's still served peiodically in various locations. I had one just a couple months ago. Not bad, expect for the pickles. And the fact that mine had about 1/2 gallon too much sauce, and that it was hard to tell the inside from the outside (messy assembly).

mmmmmmmmmmmmm pork

No, I don't think so. More like "mmmmmmm earthworms". /snopes

But now what the hell is this:



The sound you make when they come out the "other end"?
 
2003-07-03 07:20:02 PM
Too many excellent quotes in this article:
"It's a mixture of awful massacres and failed science experiments"
 
2003-07-03 07:20:07 PM
woodycsz: "Those things are damn good. It has bypassed the Burger King sausage egg and cheese crossandwich as the best breakfast in the world."

Ironic that you use the word 'bypass'.

Awwww mannnn, they even have the Happy Meals in BOXES still while we have to put up with getting Happy Meals in crumpled-azz bags. How can I properly fill out the maze on that? HOW??

 
2003-07-03 07:21:52 PM
I actually had one of these the day they came out. Totally by accident though. I was ordering my usual breakfast a #9 with a large orange juice.

Since it was so early I wasn't even paying attention or looking at the menu. Drove up to the window, grabbed my stuff and started my drive to work.

I unwrapped it and was like "WTF????" Since I'm not one of those assclowns who has to have everything made to their exact specifications, I ate it.

It wasn't bad, but I'm the guy who hates getting syrup on his bacon and sausage during a normal breakfast so I probably won't order one on purpose. Didn't taste bad otherwise.

As the saying goes, "Being healthy only means you're dying slower" so stop whining about how shiat is bad for you and just live your lives.

Extra whipped cream on that McChocolate Cheese Burger please.

the mcRib comes around everytime there's a serioulsy fatal pig disease epidemic and mickey d's can pick up the infected puerk for pennies per lb.

One McDonald's executive turned to another McDonald's executive and said, "Hey, what can we do to a McMuffin to make it even better and more marketable?"

And then he took a shovel and whacked the guy across the head.

And the second guy said, "Well, we'll turn the buns into pancakes!"

/nsync and aerosmith
 
2003-07-03 07:25:45 PM
The Egg McMuffin isn't much worse?
 
2003-07-03 07:25:55 PM
I think its funny. I don't believe in the legal cases that are stating that "Mcdonalds made me morbidly obese" but could they have created anything with more contempt for the human body?



Somewhere there is a board room fill McExecutives
laughing there collective ass'es off as they watch the faces of americas obese unwashed masses thru the security cam as the pimple faced girl at the counter delivers the crushing blow. "Sorry we are no longer serving breakfast."
 
2003-07-03 07:25:56 PM
I can't even go into a MacDonald's anymore. They make me feel unclean.
 
2003-07-03 07:26:12 PM
Fnord, I think you're right about that sound. . .

Oh, and FifthColumn: I'm half white/Dutch and half black/American (father from Tennessee). U cannot begin to imagine my speech issues in elementary school.

Mmmmm, made with fresh Davey's!



Mmmmmm... Universal language... Gahagaaaaa...

These are new? We've had them in San Diego for like 6 - 7 months.
 
2003-07-03 07:27:37 PM
we live in a country where we can be malnourished and obese at the same time.

God bless America !

Has anyone seen that MCd's commercial that shows some dude using miniature fork and knife cutting open a new all white MEAT chicken nugget on miniature plat?

Marketing at it's best. What a FARKING JOKE!
 
2003-07-03 07:30:44 PM
unyon

I am thankful that someone picked up on that set up and spiked it.

Good job.
 
2003-07-03 07:31:52 PM
And WTF is up with the orange Juice? I order a large OJ and they give it to you in a shot glass with a straw.
everything else there is superultramega sized except for the one thing on their menu with any vitamins.
What do they have a couple McHaitians in the back of the
McD's near the grease trap squeezing fresh OJ?

Super Colon Blow?

I'm not sure who ever told that Matt or Mike or whoever that he was funny, but I'm here to dispute the fact. This, and his previous food critiques, are simple, dull, and rely on gross-out lines that would not make a seventh grader laugh. If you have to try so hard to appear amusing, you're not. Futhermore, if you're going to pretend that you're sarcastic and comically literate, it's better if you correctly spell words. Even the small seemingly insignificant ones.
 
2003-07-03 07:35:50 PM
MadBeefer, you have my deepest sympathy.
As well as, (going by everyone's review of these threats to human life) my sympathy to those who did/will eat any of these. I am not that brave.
 
2003-07-03 07:36:11 PM
Let's see fried lard can they make fried lard?

How about "Butter-fried lard doughnuts"
GIS this gem.

Yes, but you have to bread it first.

They analyzed them on howard stern. Artie Lang had like 4 of them and a heart attack. :-)

Stern said the pancakes spooged in your mouth when you take a bite out of them. I think that might be crappy. They seemed to like them though.

I am sure you can get fried lard on a boardwalk somewhere.
