McRib!

Published by at 3:30 am under I Don't Get It

McDonlads McRib Sandwich, disgusting, gross

How is this OK?

Based on the shape of the “meat” found sadly cowering inside the McRib bun, McDonald’s would have us believe that it’s entirely normal to eat the bones when eating ribs. Forget about pulling the meat off the bone, just stick the whole fucking carcass in your mouth and chew it up like you’re a… you’re a… I can’t even think of an animal that eats bones.

I’ve also found that most award-winning ribs are the color of Guy Fieri’s hair.

Stay classy McDonald’s, I quit.

    I have never eaten a McRib. Not once. I am a 33 year old American.

    What’s the big deal about them?

    Just more processed garbage from McDonald’s. I refuse to ever eat there. It’s like Wal*Mart and NASCAR had a child and that child is McDonald’s. It’s the white trash fast food.

    Chik-Fil-A is where it’s at, bitches!

    …and Five Guys.

    after seeing photos of the mechanically separated chicken paste used in chicken mcnuggets, i don’t think i can eat much from mcdonald’s menu any more.

    McRibs taste like ass, and it’s not just the mechanically separated meats and molded patty. The BBQ sauce tastes horrible. It’s funny I was screwing with my wife’s head the other day because she has never tasted one. I didn’t even have the balls to waste my time and money to get one for her to yack up!

    This was one of those things that perplexed me as a child. I understood that some meats come with the bones still attached (that you eat with your hands, of course) and the ones without bones are for dinner table occassions where you use a knife and fork. I vividly remember asking my uncle Brian about the McRib-he explained that I should simply refain from asking questions about McDonalds, which is great advice I still live by. I have never had a McRib an never will. Meat paste. Wow.

    Krusty: I’m sorry but we have to discontinue the Ribwich the animal we made it out of has become extinct

    Homer: The cow?

    Krusty: No, think smaller….and more legs

    8bit – allow me to add In-N-Out, Steak & Shake and Culver’s.

    Jay – It’s over for McDonald’s. I mean it is for me. Their food is literally inedible now.

    Jim – I ate a McRib when they first came out, maybe around 1986, and I remember the sauce tasting like an ashtray. TONS of fake some “flavor.” Horrifying.

    Fartface – “Meat paste.”

    Sara – Krusty while shooting a commercial for Krusty Burger… “Uh, some of the juice went in my mouth!”

    Yeah, because In-N-Out, Culver’s, Five Guys and Steak and Shake are MUCH healthier alternatives to the McRib. Hey, I love all those places (just had my first Edzo’s experience yesterday) and McDonald’s too, but none of them are ‘healthy’. And this is coming from a relatively fat guy, I wish I had Listy’s metabolism. It’s all about moderation.

    I had a McRib the other day because it been a while since I had one. It was meh, it quelled my urge to have one again. I’m sure I’ll forget how meh it was and have another in a few years.

    Krusty: “I’m gonna spit in every fifth burger!!” (When Krusty’s Olympics giveaway went awry)

    Homer: “I like those odds!”

    I’m in Peru right now, where McDonalds has just started selling friend chicken. I think it’s from an actual animal, though, and not of the mystery-meat-paste varieties that comprise mickey d’s “meals” in the US. (Has anyone outside of a commercials ever actually said “mickey d’s”)
    http://mcdonalds.com.pe/ It kinda troubles me when all of the meat products have Mc-attached to their names (McFish, McChicken, WTF)

    PS. Listy, please do something about this:

    Ken – I’m not saying those places are healthier, I’m just saying they at least taste good while they kill you. I used to like McDonald’s every so often but the quality is rock bottom these days. It literally does not taste like food to me.

    Edzo’s is in my top 5 for burgers though.

  10. calebon 11 Nov 2010 at 12:58 pm

    i avoid all fast food as much as possible (even though i like some of it), except for Chipotle, which i don’t think really counts as fast food.

    all the fast food chains in the country use the same “mechanically separated” meat in their patties and nuggets. i agree that some chains seem “nicer” than others, but they are all peddling the same garbage.

  11. calebon 11 Nov 2010 at 1:48 pm

    i will say, though, that Sonic has awesome beverages (cherry limeade!). and their ice is addictive like crack. seriously. it’s so good they sell it by the bag. 1.50 for 10 pounds.

    oh and i’m a sucker for DQ Blizzards.

  12. Erinon 11 Nov 2010 at 1:57 pm

    I am with you Caleb… I used to love Sonic when I lived in Texas. Sadly we do not have a Sonic in Maine, which is probably good for my waist size.

    JB – Yeah, I’ve seen country hip hop before. It is a pure work of art!

  14. Nikkion 11 Nov 2010 at 8:01 pm

    Oh my.
    I have a friend who is completely obsessed with the food at McDonald’s. If she could eat there for every meal, I’m pretty sure she would. She eats this at lunch nearly every day, and I nearly barf, as McDonald’s has made me do the last three times I ate there.

  15. You Just Made My List!on 11 Nov 2010 at 8:03 pm

    Nikki – Think about what her poop must look/smell like. THINK ABOUT IT!

  16. kenon 11 Nov 2010 at 8:08 pm

    Possibly TMI, Caleb, but I’ve eaten at Chipotle exactly twice and both times yakked in their bathroom before I was even done with the meal. Those are the only two times I’ve ever not been able to hold a meal down, ever; I’ve eaten at some pretty lousy places. Oh, and Chipotle is owned by a little-know company in Oak Brook, Illinois called—wait for it–McDonald’s! There’s too much good, authentic Mexican food in Chicago for me to ever eat at a chain.

  17. calebon 12 Nov 2010 at 9:37 am

    Ken – yeah i knew that about mcdonalds buying chipotle. thats too bad. i still think their ingredients are at least slightly better than mcdonalds, at least they were when the chain was founded. i haven’t eaten there in awhile since, as in chicago – there’s a lot of good authentic mexican/latin food here in minneapolis.

    A) I did not know such a thing existed.
    B) Hyenas eat bones. And Sharks. And owls, but owls barf them back up cuz they can’t digest them.

  19. kenon 12 Nov 2010 at 3:43 pm

    Caleb-

    I know a lot of people who love Chipotle, especially people who work downtown Chicago and don’t have access to authentic taquerias, which is why Chicago needs to legalize food trucks. I’ll admit I occasionally indulged in Baja Fresh, until they pulled out of the Midwest.

    Thanks for foisting onto the world overly sweet “barbecue sauce” McDonald’s. Whoever invented the “sauce” should be executed by the method of being slathered in honey and put in the middle of 20 bee hives. Paralyzed. Since the invention of this abomination, 2/3 of places adopted use of Sweet Baby Ray’s or similar “sauce” that is at least 2/3 honey. Why not just pour honey on the meat and get it over with.

    What is that? Shamu’s afterbirth?

  22. jasonon 24 Nov 2010 at 6:48 pm

    i recently swore off mcdonalds and reduced my frequency of visits to Wendys. neither are worth the risk of stomach issues with food cooked in old grease.

    Mechanically seperated is rendering. After they get all the good cuts off the cow, they roll it around in a big tumbler to get all the last bits off. BTW, when you buy “Ground Beef” all it means is it came off a cow somewhere. It could be anything: Lips, Anus, eyeballs, it’s all good. (Buy Ground chuck or Sirloin) But seriously, what is better on ribs than pickel and onion? On a roll?
