I never pay attention to these polls cause they’re all dumb but man o man does it feel satisfying to have In-N-Out fall from grace into the number 2 spot. And listen, I’ve never had In-N-Out. I’m sure its a tasty burger for a decent price, but what I’m saying is that it’s over rated as fuck. A good burger doesn’t need much, a bun, beef, cheese, some toppings etc. Let me walk into your burger establishment and say I want a Cheese burger or a hamburger. What I don’t want is a busy ass place with over privileged California kids say “Oh I want a triple triple triple animal style and blah blah blah it’s lit suh dude.” All of that is nonsense. Just give me a burger. I don’t want a fancy name. I don’t want a stupid paper hat. I don’t want thousand island dressing on my fries that people get because it’s on a “secret menu” that every one in the state of California, with the highest population of all 50 U.S. states totaling to over 38 million people, know. If I live in Cali, I get it. Its a good burger at a good price. But coming from me here, I’m tired of all the assholes that say its the best with it’s gimmick menu and over complicated ordering process. And I might just go to Five Guys tonight just to rub it in their faces.
SIDENOTE- Steak n Shake falling to number 10 is criminal. I get it’s not a Burger but the frsico melt is so dangerously good that if we technically add melts to the burger category it should wipe out half the competition. And then some of the diversity there. The Guac burger, the Wisconsin buttery that is an instant heart attack. Delicious. Smashburger is trash, Sonics was one of the worst fast food experience in my life time and that includes shitting my pants almost immediately after having a breakfast buritto from McDonalds. Steak n Shake should be like 5 on the list.
Independent Journal Review– The signing of the Declaration of Independence, the pilgrims landing at Plymouth Rock, the first moon landing — these are all great moments in America’s history, moments that have helped define us as a people and a nation. Well, history will smile upon this moment, too, for the long-thought impossible, yet forever dreamed of, is now set to happen. McDonald’s is going to start delivering. The announcement is one of several interesting directions the company has taken in recent months. Earlier this year, McDonald’s announced that it would respond to mandatory minimum wage hikes by replacing some workers with automation and adding self-serve kiosks for customers. Former McDonald’s CEO Ed Rensi told Fox News: “It’s cheaper to buy a $35,000 robotic arm than it is to hire an employee who’s inefficient making $15 an hour bagging french fries.” The delivery service will be available in Florida via Uber’s new UberEats service at first, and based on feedback from Florida customers, McDonald’s will make the decision whether or not to expand delivery service to other states. Delivery service is one more step in McDonald’s effort to offer customers the “experience of the future,” which includes table service, lattes, and the aformentioned self-serve kiosks, according to CNBC. McDonald’s also plans to start letting customers pay with a mobile app sometime next year.
Oh shit. Don’t look now but America’s favorite Fast Food Chain just re-invented the wheel and is test driving all over Florida. Never thought I’d see the day. Ever since day 1 of birth all I knew of McDonald’s was a walk in or drive through fast food chain. Perfect system. You drive around the block, order your shit in the comfort of your car and drive off listening to tunes 1 handed while the other hand devours carbs. Then they arguably disrupted the entire world economy when they introduced all day breakfast. I mean that was the pinnacle. What else did you need? Your option of any burger or breakfast menu item at all hours of the day. Incredible. Do you know how much time has elapsed in the world before an advancement as astronomical as all day breakfast was? Years. I’m talking like landing on the moon, modern cellphones, then McDonald’s all day breakfast. Well they just took it another step forward towards the future. Fucking McDonald’s delivery. And yea i know there’s shit like Seamless and Grubhub already doing that. But those are metropolitan cities that have options for everything to be delivered. It was one food option in the sea of many. We’re talking delivery in Florida. A place where we can now chose to not burn a cup of gas to sit in our car for 10 minutes, drive 3 miles and place an order. Instead we can just do it from the sofa and walk 5 feet to the door. MAGNUM.
INDEPENDENT- A woman was left “mortified” in McDonalds after she bought a man eating tomato ketchup a meal because she believed he was homeless – only to discover he was an ordinary customer waiting for his meal. Claire Varin, 33, was buying breakfast in McDonalds in Halifax town centre when she saw an unshaven man with a rucksack sat at a table eating ketchup from the sauce dispenser. Fearing he was homeless and hungry, she decided to buy him a meal. As she placed it in front of him, a member of staff brought over another meal and apologised to the man for the wait. She said: “To be honest, my imagination ran away with me. ‘Had this poor man been out on the streets all night? Was this the only food he would eat all day?’ “Maybe he had no money and was starving. I thought only desperation could lead someone to eat ketchup. “I felt really sorry for him. It was a very cold morning and I thought how can I sit here with this meal and leave him sat there with just ketchup? “He must have been sat there for a good 10 minutes so I assumed he hadn’t ordered and had just come in from the cold.” She said she felt fantastic that in some way she had helped the man, but left the restaurant as quickly as she could when she discovered he was an ordinary customer. She added: “I really enjoy a McDonald’s breakfast now and again, but I think I’ll have to give that store a miss in the mornings in case I see that man again.”
This is hardly what I would consider a news story that needs publication, but that don’t mean it ain’t blog-able. Look, I don’t want to come off as a cynical asshole. I’m a nice guy. I do charitable things when i see a cause that I find interesting or hits me emotionally. But what I don’t do is make my self feel like I’m a self important asshole who wants to be seen as a better person for helping. I’m not looking to be applauded. I’m looking to going on with my day with out any complications. I almost despise these people that want to help everyone with their hands out. Well now you kind of just look like an asshole for assuming he’s a bum. And don’t get me wrong, I think in a 9 out of 10 times if you were to ask if you thought a guy with a beard raggy clothes and a rucksack eating ketchup out of a dispenser for 10 minutes, was poor or not, they would say yes. But the world is a fucked up place. A lot of people are poor and giving a guy one MickyD’s breakfast doesn’t change a thing just because you want to be one of those Random Acts of Kindness people. And sometimes there are weirdos who just eat ketchup like its water. C’est la Vie.
LiveLeak-“I was on my way home from Monday night curling league, I hadn’t eaten much since lunch time, and I was driving by a McDonald’s, so I thought I’d just swing in and pick up a BigMac while I listened to the end of MNF game on the radio. At first I was annoyed the guy in front of me was taking so long, he seemed pretty upset to begin with, but it looked like when the McDonald’s guy handed him his cash and change back he dropped some of the dude’s change. That’s when he got out of his car, spit on the drive through window and tried to punch the McDonald’s and that’s when I started recording.” This took place yesterday in Northeast Minneapolis.

Not a good look here if you’re the McDonalds customer. You almost can’t be more disadvantaged in this fight trying to hit a guy that has full mobility while you only have a torso up fighting out of a window, yet here we are, dropping fools in the MickyD’s drive-thru getting blogged about 2 days later. From the description he seems like a short tempered fellow, well if he’s the type to get mad often how does he not know how to throw a punch? Literally the only thing he had in his arsenal was doing EVERYTHING he can to pull on the guys tie. A cheap, restaurant issue, probably clip on, tie. And he couldn’t even do that. Not with the full force of his weight and gravity could he yank it off. Didn’t think about throwing a jab. Surprised he was daring enough to try to kick, but after one attempt he still got held down. All out of a drive thru window. Guy doesn’t even deserve McDonalds after that performance.
P.s- How about the video guy casually being in a Monday night curling league. I don’t know much about Minneapolis, Minnesota but i feel like that’s such a Minnesota move. Just cold weather sports even if that means curling till 11 at night and you gotta catch the 4th quarter on you way home from a sweaty tired curling match.
(NEWSER) – You’d think our pumpkin latte obsession would have to be pretty bad to warrant a study on their sales, but it turns out most of us like a taste only about once every season. Market research firm NPD Group reviewed fall and winter receipts from some 35,000 diners last year to find 72% of people who indulged in a pumpkin latte did so only once; 20% bought two, while 8% bought three or more, reports the Chicago Tribune. You might be surprised given that pumpkin flavor appears in everything from yogurt to beer and at places like Dunkin’ Donuts and McDonald’s. But it turns out the real perk to having a pumpkin drink on the menu is that it brings in new customers who keep coming back. Still, it doesn’t hurt that those who do buy the limited-edition drink spend more than those who avoid it: Pumpkin latte buyers paid out $7.81 on average, compared to $6.67 for other consumers. People who bought another seasonal beverage, the white mocha, spent even more: $8.37 on average as opposed to $6.84 for buyers who purchased something else. The higher tallies tended to involve food purchases, notes NPD Group. “We do see more chains trying to drive visits with these special limited-time offers,” says Warren Solochek of NPD Group. “It gives chains a chance to talk about themselves.” While the study focused on beverages, Solochek notes seasonal food items, like the McRib at McDonald’s, likely enjoy similar success. While the short offer period limits how many times consumers will actually get a taste, “one thing the McRib does is generate a ton of positive press for McDonald’s,” he says. “It’s one of those promotions that McDonald’s does really well.” (Until recently, Starbucks’ pumpkin latte didn’t include real pumpkin.)
I was right! It was all an elaborate farce perpetuated by stupid ass buzzfeed culture people! listen if you think about warm mushy pumpkin tossed into coffee you would probably get diarrhea right away. Its just the spices, not the pumpkin itself that people like. Now listen, i don’t want to be a brag really but i kinda said this in my blog about #TeamApple Vs. #TeamPumpkin. Sure they aren’t making an Apple latte or anything i don’t think but the point is pumpkin is just this culture that exploded by buzzfeed basic white girls who can’t think for them selves. They’ll always say they love their pumpkin spice lattes but turns out that they only buy one probably just to take an instagram photo and be done with it BECAUSE IT STINKS! I dont want to pat my self on the back really but Me and #TeamApple are about to stuff #TeamPumpkin into a locker and may never let it free.
I apologize for the angle of it . I NEVER would’ve expected it to escalate to that extent. Riverdale MD, Riverdale police handled this situation a lot better than other police would have in my opinion. Im amazed they didn’t shoot. **Backstory** : So about 4-8 mins before the police arrived , this man was inside the McDonalds located in Riverdale MD on Kenilwoth Ave. When I first noticed him, he was just talking to himself. After not paying attention to what he was saying, he began to bang on his table like if it were drums and was doing it a bit too loud. I had just assumed he was a person of special needs maybe and once agin, didn’t pay attention. He soon started punching his table like if it were a person and knew, he was becoming aggressive and an endangerment to the publics safety. My mom had asked an employee at this point if they had called the police and they had responded saying “yes, they’re en route.” He soon gets up and starts arguing with himself and acts like he wants to fight with someone who was in front of him and goes up against a wall and starts shouting. He takes off his shirt and starts walking around which endangers the public a lot more because we don’t know if he’s going to hurt someone because this man already seemed agitated. At this point he starts throwing chairs to the ground and slammed a wet floor sign to the ground and pushing chairs. McDonalds was pretty packed as well considering most people were getting out of work and school and there was quite a bit of children (including my 2 younger siblings) and a group of elderly people. When the police arrive, he was ordered on the ground and knew right there, to take out my phone and start recording. During the moment i had forgotten to turn my phone sideways which is why its at that angle so i do apologize for that. After he was detained, his legs were soon in cuffs and had a human muzzle it seemed like because he was still shouting and screaming. The ambulance arrived probably about 2 or 3 mins later after he was detained. He was then transported to a DC hospital. After all, he was tased 3 times, maced about 4 times, hit with the baton twice, tackled to the wall, and almost had his arm broken when being detained. Throughout the whole incident, this man showed NO sign of giving up and was resisting arrest. It seemed clear after being tased for the first time that this man WAS ON DRUGS. Most likely PCP. I commend the officers for stoping him before he could hurt someone and danger the public.
What’s the point of using and continually using a taser when you blast it at a bum and he just casually strolls around McDonalds with electricity coursing through his veins? Was theirs just broken? Is this man like Electro from Spider Man and just eats electricity for breakfast, lunch, and dinner? Honestly I think its just what happens when you’re that fine line of bum where you’ve slept on the streets enough times but haven’t just fully given up on life. Like he probably has a crappy den of a house but just shoots up on the streets to the point where the elements have numbed his nerves down so he can’t feel much physical pain. Obviously still has some meat on him, and not emaciated like a Holocaust victim. Like I said, that fine line of bum. I mean the cop fired that thing point blank at him and he was still running around like a dog on a leash. That doesn’t work? Oh we’ll just wail on his leg with this nightstick while the tasers still running. Dude just scratches it off. They needed two freaking tasers and an ass kicking to kinda get him at least on the floor. They treated mace like it was hair spray and a little sting in his eyes. If it is just the drugs just fighting the pain then we need to modify that shit so that you’re not a crazy lunatic and just a drug that creates super soldiers that can take endless amounts of pain because thats whats going on for this guy.
Love these 2 dudes just going at their food. Doesn’t matter if you’re white collar or blue collar. They just want nothing more than to get off work, enjoy their Bic Mac combo meal with a large fries maybe some McNuggets, and take in the live theater of watching a bum get arrested. Men of two different worlds, but men none the less who need their McDonalds.
If I were in the drive through lane and saw this happen, I would ask the police officer if i could volunteer help by just running him over or just a nice strong love tap with the front bumper. It might be a cruel thing to do but you go through drive through to avoid the madness and judgement of others when you place an order large enough to feed a family all for yourself. Plus if im hungry than anyone in my path to satiation is fair game.
SkyNews– They have been rivals for decades but Burger King has decided to offer an olive branch to McDonald’s – for one day only. The company is proposing the chains “settle the beef” by combining their best-known burgers – the Whopper and the Big Mac – into the McWhopper, with the two recipes separated by a burger bun. It would be sold for just 24 hours at a pop-up restaurant in Atlanta, which is equidistant between their respective headquarters in Chicago and Miami. Even staff uniforms and the takeaway bags would be a compromise – half in McDonald’s red, and the other in Burger King brown. Burger King extended its invitation of friendship in full-page adverts taken out in The New York Times and The Chicago Tribune. It wants the “McWhopper” experiment to take place on 21 September, which has been declared by the UN as an International Day of Peace, with any proceeds donated to charity. However, customers wouldn’t pay for their McWhopper with cash. Instead, they would be asked to sign a tray mat declaring who they will make peace with. In a proposal to McDonald’s, Burger King said: “All these ingredients come together to build the burger some said would never happen. Some say the same thing about world peace. “Let’s prove them wrong on Peace Day. Everything in our proposal is up for discussion, from the name right through to the packaging. “The only thing we can’t change is the date, so let’s talk soon.” McDonald’s is yet to comment on their rival’s bold proposal.
Blasphemy, pure blasphemy. There is no chance in hell that McDonalds is the brain child of this abomination. Its those desperate assholes at Burger King driving this idea. Last year they had to merge with Tim Hortons pretty much just to pay utilities probably while McDonalds just grows its army. Like literally i think McDonalds has enough resources to over take a country at this point. Burger King saying they’re extending an olive branch to MickyD’s is a pure sad joke. McDonalds should just double down and create a whooper for a day and just push it on National Hate Day.
Now I don’t actually hate Burger King, but facts are facts. Burger King is just living past its prime. The heyday of the King has gone the way of the dodo bird. Their peak was when they released those Pokemon Gold Card. To this day, that was probably the single greatest Fast Food Promotional toy item history. You can’t deny that, but that was in like 1999. Its 2015. When the whole Burger King King commercials came out i could see a slow rise in business and chicken fries is a nice novelty thing but novelties don’t last. McDonalds has sausage, egg, and cheese biscuits. That right there is a generational talent. Egg McMuffin? Thats a dark horse championship contender. Sausage egg and cheese McGriddle combo breakfast with a hash brown and Orange Juice? Dynasty Reign. And thats just the breakfast menu that operates from 5 to 10:30 am. While Burger Kings struggling to make it to the post season McDonalds already won 3 championships before lunch hours. I don’t hate BK for trying everything they got in the tank to be relevant, but pretending like they’re the ones thats offering to help McDonalds by “joining forces” is just sad. Its Mayweather/ Pacquiao all over again. We wanted that fight like 10 years ago when everyone was in their prime.
P.s- McDonalds Agrees with me and thinks this whole idea is a joke and is laughing at the Kings face.
Business Insider-A San Francisco writer claims McDonald’s copied his work to sell cheeseburgers. David Sikorski says McDonald’s copied photos of him posing with a burrito in a mock engagement photo montage. The photos went viral online after BuzzFeed published them on July 13. On August 3, McDonald’s launched an ad campaign for its $2.50 double cheeseburger “combo” deal. The company’s ads, which also had the theme of a mock engagement, strongly resembled Sikorski’s photos.
As the old adage goes, Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Well in this case it may or may not apply but either way i dont care because if you’re from San Fransico and you’re mad because a billion dollar industry that services me, stole you’re idea of a photo of you sleeping next to a burrito, then you’re probably just being a whiney asshole. I mean i picture this guy stomping his feet whining like a child because they took your idea portraying how much you love one food item. I think anyone who intentionally takes a photo like that is an asshole. shits so inconvenient, and its like you’re trying too hard for the likes on instagram. Like Chipotle has now been over run by hipsters who need to make it known their love for chipotle when no one cares. Thats what i think of this person and their burritos. So throw a fit all you want about McDonalds taking your idea but at $2.50 for a double cheeseburger combo deal and no headache of some San Fransican yelling about who came up with an idea first, im siding with McDonalds.
