      Mmmmm, same here. I never got to try a McRib, so now I get to try its progeny.

    2. Why couldn't they use real ribs?? These pressed Frankenribs look weird.

      I suspect that if you like the McRib, you'll like this.

      1. It looks like they replaced the buns of the Mcrib with two more fake pork patties. If that's true I hope to God it's real, and that it's still around when I get back to the States.

              It's too bad if it is a hoax. I think they could do well with making a McNugget version of the McRib or something along those lines.

                The comments on that hoax site seem to indicate a demand for this product.

        2. I was going to try that!!!

          1. Cool. Will the writer next visit some southern barbecue places or gourmet places that specialize in food cooked in duck fat served with lots and lots of wine? Will they chain themselves to the local grocer because they sell sugar?
