    These are a guilty pleasure, so I'll be having a few while they're available. So log your (out of body) experiences here. Unfortunately I packed my lunch today, but starting tomorrow it's on!

    I have no problem devouring a heart attack on a plate, or having arteries congested like rush-hour traffic in Boston. I just cannot fathom the desire to eat something completely disgusting like the McRib; It's about as real as Pam Andersons tits.

    I was all gung-ho about the McRib when it came out up here because I'd never had one, they're all so good from what people tell me, etc. Then I had one.

    If I want a "rib" sandwich, I just have to go to one of the many sub places here, get what I want on the rib, and STILL have it taste way better than that.

    You can keep your mechanically separated pork product pressed into the shape of a rib rack and then doused with BBQ flavored diabetes juice, thank you very much.

    Yesterday we were talking about somehow stealing the dies they use to press the pork so that we could counterfeit these off season. There's money to be made in the off season...

    You'd also have to get the right texture (filler and fat) and taste (spices, chemicals), no?

    I figure it really doesn't matter what we cram in the dies, as long as it's gristly and smothered in barbecue sauce.

    haha not the right term I guess. Maybe "additives" would be appropriate?

    But chemicals is funnier :)

    It's funny when it comes to fast food, everyone seems to love McDs. I used to be but then got out and tried other fast food.

    Personally, I love Wendy's for the chicken sandwiches and I love Burger King for a REAL burger. Double whopper, bacon, cheese, heavy all....mmmmm...THAT'S a burger.

    LOL...my stomach just growled at me.

    Burger King is good but only if you eat it right away. It seems that if it sits more than 10 minutes it starts to smell funky. I don't know why that is. Farmer Boys FTW.

    Carls Jr/Hardees. Really, nothing else even compares in quality aside from local joints. In N' Out is good, but it's still like eating microwave dinner in comparison.

    I want to get a McRib while they're around. I haven't had one since I was a kid, so I just want a reminder as to why I've waited 10+ years to try it again.

    ^^^

    They're only here til 11/14, or is that the mandatory and local stores can have longer? Around here it seemed like they were around all through the holiday season before.

    Carls Jr is good but Farmer Boys is great. If any of you are ever near one, you have to try it.

    I've found the quality of a McRib varies greatly from store to store. The amount of sauce, bitterness of the onions, etc. But when you get a good one you'll know. Angles singing, shaft of light penetrating the heavens, M.J. comes back to life, etc.

    I was so excited to try In-N-Out the first time I went to California... then I had it and I really didn't even like it. Carls Jr was pretty tasty though.

    Here, my favorite place to go for a burger and fries is Five Guys. They only have burgers, hot dogs, fries, and grilled cheese sandwiches... but what they do, they do very well. <3 The fries are fried in peanut oil and come in huge orders, and they have signs up each day telling you where the potatoes are from. And the burgers and whatnot are all cooked to order (when you order, they yell out how many patties and dogs to put on so they can throw them on the grill). If anyone has one nearby and has never had it, I highly recommend it. :)

    It's been probably 6 years since I've had McDonalds, but I was never really a part of the McRib hype train. I just don't get what's so great about it!

    I tried a McRib a few years ago and thought it was the worst tasting thing I have ever gotten at a fast food joint. I don't know if I just got a bad one but I can't get myself to try it again. I really really wanted to like it because I have heard so many good things. Maybe my high expectations forever ruined it for me.
