People still believe there's actual meat in anything you buys from mcdonalds? Laph.

2012-06-02 10:16:15 AM  
so from now on "tasty" = "inedible fecal matter on a bun"

Gotcha
 
2012-06-02 10:23:25 AM  
Like there's any pork in a McRib

/tails, maybe
 
2012-06-02 10:27:32 AM  
Some pigs are more equally tasty than others.

Several years ago a friend and I decided to get stoned a buy one of everything on the dollar menu at McD's. The McRib was one of the items. It was disgusting.
Yeah, css.

Btw subs, wtf does 'pig friendly' mean? Can somebody illustrate?

Google "concentrated agricultural feeding operation" as a start.

I still won't eat a McRib unless someone pays me $20 (and will drive me to an ER if necessary).

The McRib does not grace the dollar menu.

IIRC it was an introductory price but then again I was really stoned.

Your McRib sandwich just got happier and tastier. That's unpossible
 
2012-06-02 12:43:10 PM  
It's "pig friendly" because actual pork never gets anywhere near a McRib.
 
2012-06-02 12:53:30 PM  
the pigs still end up dying and getting butchered for food. they can't be 'that' happy.
 
2012-06-02 12:55:49 PM  
I think that it's still pretty unfriendly to kill them, grind em up, cook them and slap them on a bun.

And delicious.
 
2012-06-02 12:55:52 PM  
A 30% mortality rate for piglets born in open housing is common. The use of the farrowing crate eliminates most of that.

The (yummy) pigs still die in the end, right? Doesn't sound too friendly to me, if you're a pig that is.

/die with a smile on their faces?

Hey, sewer rat may taste like pumpkin pie, but I'd never know 'cause I wouldn't eat the filthy motherfarker. Pigs sleep and root in shiat. That's a filthy animal. I ain't eat nothin' that ain't got sense enough to disregard its own feces.
 
2012-06-02 01:36:37 PM  
Wait, there's pig in the McRib? I thought it was a big wavy chicken nug.

YOU LIE!!! WHY ARE YOU SUCH A GODDAMNED LIAR!!! HOW DARE YOU QUESTION THE PIGGYNESS OF THE MCRIB!
 
2012-06-02 01:53:13 PM  
There's nothing "pig friendly" about what happens to pigs raised on a pig farm.

/jus' sayin'
 
2012-06-02 01:54:19 PM  
So, everyone shiats on McDonald's when they can, but when the article came up about how to make McDonald's style fries at home, everyone went apey.

I don't get it.

/love the fries.

Seriously, I have no interest in having a McGelatinous Goo sandwich with BBQ sauce.

I quit eating McRib sandwiches when each tasty mouthful came with its own bone chips.

He don't eat dog either.

Pig friendly farms, free range chickens, non steroid cattle ?
Bottom line, they all wind up dead and on your plate.

All pigs die in the end. Without humans, they'd be eaten alive by predators.

Presumably, non steroid cattle are also not saturated with antibiotics.

Here's a more informative article on the crate vs. group pen controversy:

http://bit.ly/L9xvsH

Estimates of retail price increases due to elimination of crates range from 7 to 34 cents per pound. I can live with that.

If FLORIDA banned crates years ago, there's probably something really bad about them.

For McRib lovers, try walmart's generic "Great value" version. Basically the same shaped meat patty, but it doesn't have that god-awfully-soggy bun or the onion/pickle mess.
 
2012-06-02 04:57:23 PM  
Anybody in eastern MA should try out a place called Grumpy White's. It's down past the police station in Quincy. They make something like the McRib that's more satisfying and the dinner plate is maybe a dollar or two more than your average value combo at McDonald's. And it's served to you at your table with a cold beer if you prefer.

Somaticasual: that god-awfully-soggy bun or the onion/pickle mess.


You, good sir, are a heretic. You should be publicly hanged for your heresy. That sandwich was crafted by a team of American scientists. A team that has not been seen since the Manhattan Project. OK? Do you not understand how vital that sandwich is to national security? Whenever there is fear that America might revert into a recession, McDonald's patriotically "reintroduces" that most American of sammiches, The McRib®. It is a tasty sammich that is perfectly constructed to please the palate of all Americans. Every single Real American™ loves that f*cking sammich.

Congratulations, Al Qaeda, you've just exposed yourself. Hear that knock at your door? Yup. They've come for you. Enjoy Gitmo, Achmed.

He told me he wouldn't go so far as to call a dog filthy but they're definitely dirty. But, a dog's got personality. Personality goes a long way.

Our pigs are treated with only the kindest, most tender of loving care, right up to the moment they are slaughtered so their flesh can be seared and served, dripping with sauce, to your fat American ass.
 
2012-06-02 06:06:13 PM  
I don't get the sarcasm in here. Tere is a huge differance in treating a pig humanely during its life before slaughter and factory farming condition. Just because an animal is being raised as food doesn't mean we shouldn't treat it like an animal.

/pigs are smarter than dogs.

Are you suggesting walmart is unamerican? How dare you insult the chinese like that!

I tried to generic Wal-mart McRib (to save money), but I couldn't keep the onions and pickles out of the back/side of my mullet. Any pointers?

Baseball cap., I reckon. mmmhmm..

//also likes them french fried taters..

This is oddly relevant: McRib is a vehicle for pork arbitrage.

Which, if true, makes McDonald's extremely sensitive to any price increase in pork prices.
 
2012-06-02 09:13:41 PM  
I smoke all my ribs at home.
Vertical brinkmann smoker
Apple wood chunks soaked in water overnight.
4 full slabs, 275 degrees for 4 hours, turning them at the two hour mark.
Ribs are rubbed with olive oil and cavendars.
 
2012-06-02 10:59:26 PM  
I only eat pork butchered by Mafia enforcers. That way I know that the pig probably lived a happy life up until the instant someone busted a .22 cap into the back of its head.
