Well, I have some good news, and I have some bad news.
First the good news – the McRib is back for a limited time in Denver. It is available at just about every McDonald’s in the metro area for a limited time, so go get yours before they disappear. If you have never had the opportunity, or the desire, to experience the McRib, you have missed out. The sandwich with a cult-like following contains a pressed “pork” patty in the shape of a small rack of ribs. It is thoroughly soaked in a sweet barbeque sauce, then topped with a bit more upon being placed on the bottom piece of bread. The patty is topped with white onions and a few dill pickle slices, then topped with the bread. It might remind you of the mystery meat you were served in elementary or middle school, but in the best way possible. Don’t miss out, head over to your local golden arches and eat up!
Now the bad news – the McRib is back for a limited time in Denver. While the sandwich described above is required eating when available, the fact that it is only around for a limited time means that eating it a couple of times a week is not out of the question. There are two problems with this: a) this sandwich cannot be good for you, and b) eating just about anything from Mickey D’s, and especially the McRib, will result in several trips to the commode. My suggestion is to enjoy the McRib, but stop at a bookstore on your way to see Mayor McCheese and Grimace. This will give you a new book or magazine to read while in the WC, and take your mind off of the certain discomfort you are experiencing.
So, go get your McRib (and if you large size the meal, a spiffy Coke glass), a book, and plenty of TP, then experience a true holiday tradition!
