    I don't hate fast food, as bad as it may be for you. And I do even occasionally hit McD's, but I have also never understood the love for the McRib. Pretty nasty the last time I tried one. Granted, a long time ago but I doubt they've improved it.

    McRibs are pretty much non-conformist, rock n rollers.

    They test-marketed a barbecued connective tissue patty around here and it kind of took off, so I’m surprised they never rolled it out nationwide.

    I do remember the Mctarragon shake though. Mmmmmm...savory...

    Never had one but after reading all this I will. At 480 calories it's easily worth the risk for lunch.

    I had one, once, years ago. It's mechanically separated meat, molded into an object, cooked, and slathered with a corn syrup/starch/tomato substance so you can't really see what you're eating.

    I'd rather eat barbequed ribs.

    The funk must not be faked with BBQ nor Creole.

    These are venal sins.

    IT'S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR!

    - I have a very sarcastic infatuation with the McRib. I've lost friends because of it...

    McDonald's has clean restrooms. People eat there too?

    What's that famous two-word review of the Spinal Tap album 'shark sandwich'?

    If I'm going for BBQ let it be the real thing. St. Louis, Chicago, Austin or N.C. I only clog my arteries with with the good stuff. :rolleyes:

    For me, McDonald's is occasional road-trip food: a quick burger and order of French fries to relieve hunger and keep my road rage pure.

    I won't be trying this sandwich, though.

    While I’m inexplicably and somewhat regretfully a fan of their cheeseburgers and have been since about 1965, what I think about the McRib is better left unsaid. I can, however, say this: Mrs. Stubee will buy one.

    Server: "Welcome to McDonald's! How soon would you like diarrhea?"
    Me: "Oh, well. Uh. How about three hours."
    Server: "OK. That's two McRibs, large fry, and a milkshake."
    Me: "I might need a lot of extra napkins, for later, you know..."
    Server: "Help yourself to napkins. Your total is $9.94."
    Me: (to myself) "Well that's not a lot a change."
    Server: "Don't worry sir, you will feel a lot of change very soon. Enjoy your meal!"
