It's plump, juicy, three inches thick. Look at this sorry, miserable, squashed thing. Can anybody tell me what's wrong with this picture?

When I want a burger, I schedule a consultation with my local livestock trader, he shows me the grass-fed angus steers he has rest for harvest, and I make arrangements with the local butcher to have 5lbs hand-ground within 48 hours of harvest.

After picking up the beef I head to the bakery for some kaiser buns from organic stone-ground flour.

After grilling, I add a dollop of mustard spread and thick sliced pickled cucumber, and serve with a side of buckeye potatoes cooked in coconut oil.

Pairs nicely with Shephardshead Blonde, my local craft IPA.

And while I understand the commercial viability of "keepin' it real," in some cases, a little shoop may help your whoop.

jst3p: GanjSmokr: LikeALeafOnTheWind: 404 page not found: Aulus: 95629: Why would mcdonalds publish a video like this?

Because they know they have most of the people so hooked on their product that they will keep buying and consuming it no matter what.

mmmmm chicken McNuggets..
// had a dozen for lunch today and they were gooood. your pink slime doesnt frighten me. looks not much different from tofu hippy!

Did you order a 20 piece and leave 8 or did they give you an extra 2 in your 10 piece?

The pot head catching the inaccuracy in someone's McDonald's story.... go figure.


Because only a pothead would know the 3 sizes that mcnuggets come in, amirite?

Catching that inaccuracy was more my OCD side than my stoner side.

The algebra side of me was apparently missing, as I'm realizing he could have ordered two 6 piece orders for 12 nuggets.


Damnit, now I'm going to have to have McNuggets for lunch.

The Shatner Incident: I once got a burger from McD's that actually looked like the picture on the menu. I took a picture of it for posterity because I'm pretty sure there is a slim-to-no chance that I will ever eat a burger that looked as advertised ever again. Sure enough, I haven't had one like it since.


I've had a few myself, but it was always from the same couple franchises. It seems that some locations run their staff a bit more dictatorially than others. Twice in the past year I've had my burger (one QP/c, one McDouble) come out picture-perfect at the McD's on Airport Way offa Glen Widing/Win Sivers. Even the fries are perky. It's actually a bit disturbing - as if they are watching me from that little camera in the drive-through to see my reaction. I can just imagine the manager sitting patiently behind his desk, fingers steepled, whispering to himself, "Yes... Yessss... Are you lovin' it? Gooooood..."

soupgoblin: They can be as honest as they want, they still come in solidly at last place in fastfood customer satisfaction.

McDonald's rakes in the money hand over fist, but the customer comes last as far as their stores are concerned, Accept for 2009 (they were 2nd to last place)They have ranked in last place since 1995.


Accept????

I once walked into a McDonald's where there was some kind of inspection going on--guys with white shirts everywhere with clipboards.

That burger was delicious, fresh and hot, the bun was all fluffy, and the fries were perfect.

Ruined me for McDonald's ever since, actually.

ladyfortuna: I don't know if it's just that my local McDs happens to have good assemblers or something, but the first quarter pounder with cheese I'd gotten in years looked pretty damn good sitting in that cardboard box. And it was farking delicious, especially since I'd just come off a week long stomach flu and had hardly eaten anything during that time.

I am now especially grateful that that store is not open all night, or I'd be in trouble. Fortunately it's the only one in town.


our local fast food venues have also kicked up the presentation. making it look like something you'd want to bite into. wrapping the burgers 3/4 protected with a very thin paper(?).
