You can make your own at home for pennies on the dollar. All you need is some KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce (the mesquite flavor - NOT hickory - this is very important!), Keller's 6" sesame sandwich rolls, 3 dill pickle chips, a tablespoon of diced Vidalia onion, and a decent sized dog turd. Happy cooking!

Have these so-called marketing experts lost their mojo? I can think of a few other seasonal or special offerings:

McGefilte Fish Sandwich -- Hannukah
McSauerkraut Sandwich -- Oktoberfest
McRefried Bean Burger -- Cinco de Mayo
McLutefisk Sandwich -- Leif Ericson Day
McCamel Burger -- Ramadan
McHaggis Burger -- Just in time for the Scottish Games
McTurducken Sandwich -- Drenched in special sauce for Thanksgiving
McAss Burger -- Year round for all the Tea Partiers

stiletto_the_wise: 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.

Your dad put something worse into your mom's body. The fact that you're here is proof of that.

electricity19: 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....


Barbecue isn't just a method, it's an environment. It's a social event. Seriously. The original word probably comes from the Basque sailors who encountered it in Barbados [lit. "food from (the) Barbados], but even in the extraction from the Tainu word Barabicu it means "(the) sacred fire pit". You can't have a sacred thing without devotees, so a get-together where a special meal is prepared using a purpose-specific fire pit can be called a Barbecue [party], just as pit-smoked meat can be called [a product of the] Barbecue.

Let there be no strife where Barbecue is, dear cousins. There is room enough at the table for all the fruits of The Holy Smoke as well as Tasty Side Dishes and Lovely Beverages. Let us rejoice, for all who are seated may be sated!

Raise your voices with me, Barbequarians, in this reading from Psmoke 23:

The Smoke is my seasoning; I shall want for nought but napkins. It maketh my fingers to be fragrant for days: It leadeth me beside the abundant tables. It restoreth my appetite: It leadeth me in the paths of Barbecue for its name's sake. Yea, though I sift through the ashes and the soot of The Pit, I shall fear no hunger: for thou art always cooking; thy rub and thy sauce they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of Tasty Side Dishes and Lovely Beverages: Thou anointest Brisket and Ribs with thy flavorful Grace; my lip runneth over. Surely Smokiness and Sauce-Stains shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Barbecue for ever.

I'm giving my sister a McRib for Christmas. Again. It's a family tradition.

One year, the McRib was put outside so no one had to smell it.

For a reason I'll never understand, one of our cats pulled out and ate the McRib patty.

The cat laid on her side and made awful coughing sounds and writhed around. We thought she had been injured, but got up and walked away. Only later did we realize she ate the McRib.

NobleHam: 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.
