McDonald’s decision to bring back the McRib has absolutely inundated food news over the past few days. Even mainstream media lamed things up with their coverage and there has been a surge of new “make your own McRib” posts going up. So why did I jump on the band wagon? B/c the McRib is just another fantastic opportunity for me to direct y’all to Fancy Fast Food, a website I’ve mentioned before.
With all the brouhaha over the re-launch of this “cult classic,” it’s nice to find a somewhat unique twist on the story. Basically, Fancy Fast Food is a website (and now a cookbook that you can buy on amazon) dedicated to remixing your favorite fast food dishes. Erik Trinidad takes what was once homely and depressing and re-engineers it into something beautiful. In the case of the McRib (pictured above with a few other Chez Mac classics), FFF has put together a Hawaiian Thanksgiving feast. Though I have yet to try the recipe, I would recommend replacing the bottled water with a more “natural” option. Other than that, it looks good to me! With all the McRib obsession, who says we’re in a health conscious era?
I’ve expressed my love for LEGOS before. I’ve also made no bones about my appreciation for rapidly prepared and delivered morsels of cow parts, pig parts, and “other” parts [See: fast food]. So now we have the heavenly marriage of two of my favorite things! Enjoy:
Yeah, you’ll probably notice that weird looking little symbol by the number … that’s a yen symbol folks … so no available in America-oh.
As I head off to the gym and then another day of glorious football, I couldn’t help but mention this little jewel. A recent twitter chat reminded me how few people realize that Mac sauce is free at McDonald’s. That’s right ladies and gentleman, you can get as many sides of Mac sauce as you like for exactly $0 dollars.
Some years ago, a couple of gents trying to stay ahead of the economic downturn decided to teach people how to order a Ghetto Big Mac! Thankfully, there is YouTube! Perhaps my favorite part of the video is right at the end when they drop the traditional foodie term of “Balance!” Play on playas!
I’m pissed that I had a lot of work to do the past couple of days. I wanted to write this post as soon as this story hit the Smoking Gun; unfortunately, I did not have the time. If you care for the full details, click that link. As an alternative, here is a quick rundown of this moron:
So Latreasa Goodman a 27-year-old nuclear physicist (joking of course), went to go grab some Chicken McNuggets from her area McDonald’s. Unfortunately, they were plum out. Some stupid argument ensued about over change and blah blah blah. The long of the short is that Madam Goodman called 911 THREE TIMES!!!!! You can listen to the calls here, here, and here (all mp3s).
I might actually say that Ms. Goodman wasn’t even the dumbest person involved in the incident. That award goes to the first 911 operator for not hanging up on Goodman post haste. This being the second such incident in the past month, this should not surprise anyone.
As a little tribute to 911 calls and angry people who can’t get what they want at a fast food joint I give you the following: Homer Simpson’s 911 request and the following video [NOTICE THE WORDS UNCUT – AKA NSFW]
Let’s be quick. After sitting up on the net for close to a year… this post has darned blowed ups! It’s about a McDonald’s chocolate milkshake with vanilla vodka, rimmed with BBQ sauce and garnished with a chicken McNugget has gotten love all over the place. Go read the original and wonder how our species survives
