On the one hand: the ride there was busier than expected, the ride back was hellish*, we had to dump our existing dinner plans entirely, and while I barely sold enough books to make my table fee, said fee was effectively thirty bucks. Oh, and something didn’t happen that I thought might happen. I’m not sure we’re going to vendor these kinds of venues in the future.
On the bright side: the McRib’s back!
*’Pull the car over and pee at the side of the road’ hellish. I also almost broke my ankle getting out of the car, and wouldn’t that have put a cap on the day.
This video approaches the Line: yes, I admit it. But I’m letting it slide because McRib. Besides, the video also demonstrates just how much effort and planning goes into getting you your fast food sandwich. The Scotsman has had his stopwatch and time-motion analyses out for decades, folks; and by now you can really see the results. The tasty, tasty results.
Fun fact: the guy who made the video likely has more valuable life skills than the guy who put it on YouTube.
Some of you might reverse the reactions.
I asked, idly, if they had the McRib, expecting a ‘no.’ But apparently they are available a couple of days early. REJOICE! …Rejoice.
Had to scarf it down on the way to the supermarket; hence, no photo. But it was everything that I remembered it to be, and more. ‘More’ being the BBQ sauce, which threatened to dye my beard.
Worth it? Absolutely worth it. At my age I probably shouldn’t eat one every day, though. And alas.
Via Constant Reader acat comes glorious news: the time of the McRib is upon us. Fairly big rollout, too: “The fast-food chain told Business Insider that it is bringing the McRib back to more than 10,000 locations across the US starting on Monday, October 7. ” There’s a McRib store finder, and turns out that I won’t have to go far at all. Which is nice.
PS: Yes, yes, people don’t understand why I gleefully eat the stuff. But that’s fine. This is America, and we’re all allowed to give each other the side-eye about everybody’s life choices.
As you all no doubt know, I acquired McRib yesterday.
I went to go get another today, but alas: it was limited to Pennsylvania only, apparently. We will have have to wait our turn for the God-Food. Or the ‘Satan Sandwich,’ as somebody on Twitter put it. See, I can be ecumenical…
Write a five hundred word post, and it’s crickets sometimes. Do this…
…and you get responses and retweets and followings out the wazoo. It is a wonder, really.
McDonald’s (MCD) McRib fans may have to hunt harder than usual for the popular sandwich this year.
It will only be available at participating restaurants, rather than nationwide, the company said.
“We’re letting the restaurants determine if this menu item is one their customers will enjoy,” wrote McDonald’s spokeswoman Lisa McComb in an email.
I WILL DETERMINE FOR THE RESTAURANTS. THE RESTAURANTS WILL SERVE THE MCRIB. ALL THE RESTAURANTS. ALL THE MCRIBS. UNTIL THE TIME OF SATIATION HAS BEGUN. Continue reading Oh dear GOD no! Not the McRib! NOT THE MCRIB!
