McRib Is Back For A Limited Time In 2012-I Just Ate One Tonight!

As you can see by the map at the McRib Locator (http://mcriblocator.com/), it is popping up most everywhere nationwide. Why so long? We should have had it by late November. The*&$*@ marketers!

Oh, darn. I'll miss it again.

Just like every year since 1981.

Are these the same BONELESS ribs shaped to LOOK like ribs we get in Australia from time to time?

They're terrible. Now REAL ribs. GOOD stuff.

This should take away the temptation from anyone who wants to try one. This is the one I had last year.



They didn't even put it on the fancy bun.

McRib is a Murrays "Riblet" pattie. If anyone doesn't know what "Murreys" is I'll enlighten you. Its a ghetto ass food market that sells low quality food products to mostly low income people (and college students) that can't afford to buy much of any thing else. The Murreys Riblet/Mcrib is basically a proccessed pork meat by-product. Yuck!

The McRibb is *PROOF* that everything tastes better with BBQ Sauce -- I found myself eating tofu "BBQ" one day, and I was perfectly fine with it -- BECAUSE OF THE SAUCE.

p.s. REAL BBQ needs SMOKE, not sauce.... if you don't believe me, you haven't had REAL BBQ.

Remember the phrase that they use "Everything except the squeal"? That's the McRib.

I had a kid who was a manager at one of our local MickielD's tell mee that he had seen proof that their 100% beef claim was trueful. He wasn't to happy when I told him so was a good pair of leather shoes and that the shoes would more likely have more food value.

The frys are good.
The one here won't put much ice in your drink. Evidently ice is more expensive than Coca-Cola syrup. Being stingy with ice in the South is just mean spirited.

Wife and I went to McD's. We each got value meals. With a Value Meal you can get a Mc Rib for a buck. I took the two McRibs to work the next day. That's a lot of food for 2 bucks. I agree with Couch. People who put down McD's are snobs. Everyone eats junk food now and then. Just admit it.

They are o.k., for fast food, but I don't eat fast food any more. I eat pretty healthy, and when I do indulge, I can do better than that.
