McDonalds’ PR staff is working overtime! I don’t know one person who has fond memories of the McRib sandwich, yet everywhere I go, I’m seeing or hearing some kind of hype about it. Until I see someone in my inner circle do a backflip and run down the street yelling “The McRib is back! Praise Jesus!” I’m going to be a little bit skeptical.
One of the funniest signs I saw from folks walking around en route to the Rally to Restore Sanity simply said “Bring Back the McRib.” It was hilarious to me, since it seemed to be totally random. Little did I know, the plan for a McRib comeback was already in motion. For all I know, that guy could have been a McDonalds operative, planting the subliminal seeds of McRib lust in people with his cardboard propaganda tool.
Wait a minute…A diabolical plot involving pork sandwiches? Maybe Muslims were on to something after all. That said, as long as bacon is delicious, I will never willingly give up swine. Call me what you want, but you’ll also have to call me full and happy.
Back to the McRib. Do any of you actually care that this sandwich is back? I can’t remember what it tastes like, but I do remember being underwhelmed by it years ago when I first tried one. I LOVE ribs. I love them more than I love some people in my life. Yeah, I said it. If it came down to saving certain people’ lives, or free barbecue ribs for life, well, I’ll just make sure to say something nice at your funeral and have a cookout in your honor later on that day. I think this love for ribs is the reason why I felt that the McRib was a mass-produced letdown. Now, I want to hear your opinions on the sandwich and it’s massive marketing push.Tweet
