I'd say it's more to give people time to forget what a huge mistake buying their last McRib was.

It's like candy corn. It can't possibly be as bad as you remember. Maybe it's worth trying again.

/Nope, still horrible.

Why the fark would anyone put something like that into their body? It's pretty much pure salt and pig parts, mixed with a chemistry lab full of chemicals, including a bleaching agent used to make gym mats. Nothing even close to a "rib" from any animal.

I thought they only offered it when they could get extremely large quantities of pork dirt-cheap?

...Funny, I don't associate McRib with Christmas, I associate McRib with disappointment, indigestion and diarrhea. I associate those with Christmas, too, but there's usually also family stress, wrapping paper and pie, Well, I suppose there's wrapping paper and pie at McDonald's, too, but arguing that a three-inch piece of lettuce and a slice of tomato isn't worth 99 cents or that a real beverage with real ice with a real bug in it isn't a joke novelty item with the 17-year-old stranger at the counter just doesn't bring up the same quality of despair, shame and rage as a good old family row.

Imagine, though, if they actually do leave time between their seasonal items to give consumers time to recover from the noxious health impact. Then imagine they did that with all of their products. They'd be open for maybe three days a month.

JWideman: BitwiseShift: If you associate ribs with Christmas, what body part do you associate with Easter?

I find it curious that northerners call anything that is cooked outdoors barbecue like "We're having a charity barbecue: there'll be hamburgers and hotdogs."

In that case, I could imagine BBQ ribs being associated with just about anything.

Because you use a barbecue grill. Why southerners associate "barbecue" with one specific food item is even more curious, especially when that one specific food item isn't the same throughout the south.


It's not about barbecue being one specific food item. It's about method of cooking. Grilling, like for hot dogs and hamburgers, is relatively fast. Barbecue is veeeeery slow. What you guys call a barbecue grill up there just confuses us. It's just a "grill". Because that's what it does. It grills. You don't barbecue on one of those things....

They have them all the time here in Germany. I eat one from time to time, maybe 2 or 3 times a year, but they do taste better here because they don't put all that crap in them that they do in the US so it is food, rather than chemicals held together by some food...

I'd rather eat an Arch Deluxe something else entirely.
