Look at the size of that burger! It's like 3 of their current patties put together. That almost looks how a burger is supposed to look.


The burgers didn't look like that in 1978 either.

What was your opinion of his tipping skills?

Something something, just the tip?

Pretty much where my lame ass was going with that.


Just the tip goes in your lame ass?

Yeah. They actually look better today in real life than they did back then, as far as I can remember. Quarter Pounders don't taste as good anymore, though. Changed the seasoning the meat and they're not as juicy.

gingerjet: a4dzac: Tips aside, black people put white folk to shame in regards to dressing up for church. The church 2 blocks south of me is blocks and blocks full of attendees dressed to the nines every weekend. Sunday Mass seems to be a molasses speed dating event around here.

Every easter my parents go to Old Country Buffet which oddly attracts every black person in a 100 mile radius who are all dressed to the nines.

/perhaps the reason it attracts them is that there is no tipping at Old Country Buffet


This odd phenomenon happens every Sunday afternoon at the local Red Lobster. Those waitresses must hate Sundays (if this not tipping business is true).

I don't understand why Newport ciggs are so popular with black people and white girls with black guys. I also notice that Mexicans buy a lot of fresh produce. White people love chips and Mountain Dew and all these sugar filled foods. People from Africa buy lots of rice, chicken, and French rolls.

White peeps used to dress up for Church, too, when it was more of a central part of their community life.

But now, for most white folks, Church is sort of a chore to be done for your own good. For black churches it's a notable social event. As such, you dress up.

Or so I'm told.

I can second that. And, as I found out as a convenience store sales clerk (graveyard shift), they can run faster than me even when laden with a twelve-pack.

TheBeastOfYuccaFlats: When I was working at McDons in the very early 90s, a hamburger was $0.49 and a cheeseburger was either $0.55 or 0.59, so I can totally believe that you could get pretty damn close to that in 1978.


A double cheeseburger is still 1.29. Not a bad deal. Wendy's finally farking caved and will sell me 1.00 large unsweetened iced teas though, so I don't go there much now. I want a decent amount of liquid to soak up all that salt. I shouldn't have to pay through the nose for it.

zerkalo: dahmers love zombie: [farm4.staticflickr.com image 451x600]

Y'know, I lived through the 70s, and I was a kid, which means that I really liked my McDonalds (even though back then, if you dared ask for a plain burger, they gave you the death-stare, and had to write your order down on a little slip of paper to give to the grill person, which slowed the line down considerably). That ad says that you can get four complete meals (burgerlike substance, fries, and drinklike substance) for under four dollars. I think I need to call bullshiat on this. Perhaps someone has a link to the full McD menu from the Seventies? I could only find some references to burger prices.

Make that three fitty and we got a deal


Oh, no you don't! You get outta here, you goddamn Loch Ness Monster! Get your own goddamn money!

Double-cheese was $.99 just last year but they took it off the dollar menu for some reason, which was sort of lame.

Very little beats the Cheesy Cheddarburger at Wendy's for cheap fast food, though.

Nah, it's a perspective trick. He's holding it out at arm's length, so it's REALLY close to the camera lens, while his face is farther back, creating the illusion that the burger is really large. In reality, he's just a guy with tiny hands holding a normal burger, long arms, and a large head.


Yeah, we learned about their sneaky tricks in that helpful behind the scenes McDonald's video that was posted a few days ago.

Plus, a giant burger patty does not make for a good burger.

Makes it attractive for people who over-eat, but not for a good burger. Burgers these days are 3 stories tall sometimes once you put on all the fixins. There's no need for that.

Lando Lincoln: I was a busboy for a while.

It's true. Black people don't tip. Or at least they didn't when I was working.


Its funny u say this because Tiger Woods is one of the richest athletes/people (or at least was b4 the divorce) and he is well known as one of the worst celebrity tippers out there. I believe he was actually #1or near the top of a list that was made a few years ago of the worst tippers among the rich
