A post that Christielli will love

I admit it: I am an addict. The McRib is back, folks. I have been such a good boy, too. Today I snuck off to McDonald's to get me one. I pulled up to the drive-thru talkbox and was so excited. I even called it a "McRibwich". I felt just like my buddy Homer Simpson, haaaaahhgurgle *drool*.

I got through to that magical second window and the Mexican guy was real nice and prompt, but I couldn't understand what he said other than, "You have meal and Diet Coke?" Well, I heard "McRib". I pulled away and parked in a nearby trucker lot--the prostitutes weren't out, too cold. Sheesh! I'm not like that, okay?

So, I get into my bag of goodies and find out that they gave me a Big Mac! Nothing wrong with that, I love 'em. But, that was not the fix I needed. I mean, if I am going to get fat it is going to be death by McRibwich! So, I went back in and hooped and hollered. I am a reasonable guy until you cross my animalistic needs. I mean, this sandwich is like a shrunk down version of that rack of ribs that tipped over Fred Flinstone's car. Don't they understand this? Well, if they didn't before, they sure as hell know now.

I got my meal gratis. I am special. I think I want a t-shirt to commemorate this moment. In fact, just like The Simpsons, I want to become a McRibwichead and follow its farewell tour throughout the nation. I might even get a Corvette out of this deal. I must have the last one!

Anybody want to fix up an old VW bus and come along with me?

I've never tried a McRib. I don't think they reached these fair shores. You've piqued my curiosity and I'm already starvin. Thats a dangerous thing to do to a robust gentleman such as myself.

Do you want Satan to get behind you because you want to be his bendy-boy?

Clearlykels said...

ha ha -- well, I am glad that you got your fix. You certainly have all of us convinced to try it:-)

Jules said...

I haven't had one either... I've tried to be a good girl and not do the MickeyD's thing but I went there last night for supper. Just a cheeseburger and fries though. Hey Vera - I ate a fry for you!

Good for you, Grunty for sticking with your guns and going back. I usually just crater and deal with it when they get my order wrong. I'll see you on tour, little buddy... and when you roll through Red Deer, you can expect one more tag along.

In Texas they used to serve breakfast all day at McDonald's, and one day I had the brainstorm of throwing down two sausage patties on top of my McRibwich. It was hands down the pinnacle of my meager existence.

my french mother- LOVES mcribs- too funny for a gormet gal - me not so much, but I will come and have a big and tasty any day of the week if you get up the vw bus tour and come by my way !

Christielli said...

LOL! Yay! I did love your post! Yay for Simpsons related posts!!!

What a funny episode...

I remember having a McRib when I was a kid. They had them for a limited time back then but they don't have them anymore in Canada. Guess I should take a trip to the States to relive happy childhood/Simpsons-related times.

Nothing quite like satisfying a craving. Funny that you blogged on this particular subject. I also confessed my addicition to this burger joint in Atlanta on my blog. :)

cindra said...

I just want to design the t-shirts and follow behind you to make the documenatary, okay?

Sun Follower said...

Sorry - I'm a quarter-pounder with cheese gal.

Nessa~ I know. You can hold me responsible for any falling off the wagon that might occur because of this post.

Niolk~ I am robust, hungry, red headed. I think if you and I combined our powers we could hunt down and kill the exotic creature known as Star Jones and have a proper cook out.

Anonymous #1~ HAHAHA! I like you. If someone was going to make me his bendy boy, then I figure Satan would have to be the one 'cause then he'd make me Prince of Monaco or some far out shit. So far, Jesus is my mate and he doesn't seem interested in that sort of thing with me. Sheeeewhooo!

Kels~ What else am I able to convince you to do? I'm hoping that I can get you to name your next pet after me. Waddya say???

Vera~ I will, and I'll give you the blow by blow.

Jules~ You are more than welcome to come, so long as you have good cheese sandwich and quesadilla making skills. We have to raise funds selling something. I figure that was good enough for Dead Heads, why not our group?

Anonymous #2~ Cool beans. It's awn!

Egan~ I know that you are always in training, but you can still come along. We all need someone that can coordinate stuff and save the day just in case our party is in danger of going South.

Scott~ Come on feel the McRibwicheads!

JJ~ You've just given me another reason to keep on living. Now I just need to show up right at change over to order two sausage patties, then five minutes later order the McRib, and then the dream is for real.

QT~ Will do. I need all the support I can get. Plus, my doctors say I need to start interacting with real people more.

Christielli~ See, this is what happens when you encourage me: I do great things. I hope you feel special. I know I do.

O-Girl~ Cravings are a part of life. We all need to crave and give into it once in awhile, else we would not know the value of discipline. Screw discipline, you wanna go for a burger?

Cindra~ I would love that. I knew you were going to be mighty useful to the cause, and now I know why.

Sun~ Sure, be difficult. I love the Royal with Cheese passionately. It is just that this is the McRib's Farewell Tour II. So, it is like KISS. You get to think you are experiencing it for the last time, but deep down you know that they will just whip it back out whenever they think they can make a few more bucks out of it. If it is a pork thing, I understand.

Crystal said...

dude, i read your post and got so excited, i could barely wait to leave work and get me a mcrib. i had no idea they were back! but then i got to mcdonald's. apparently it is a utah thing. i'm bummed.

The Grunt said...

See, Chica, it ain't nuttin'but a tour thang, so it might end up your way. If you see a bunch of crazies crammed into a VW bus, stick out your thumb and show some leg. I'll pull over and make some room for ya.
