…The McNuggetini is not on the Dollar Menu?


What do you get when you combine McNuggets, Barbeque Sauce, a Chocolate Milkshake and Vanilla Vodka?

Probably the world’s worst hangover, but also the McNuggetini, a McDonald’s inspired drink that may just be the perfect capper to a Dollar Menu evening.


…McDonald’s makes a McGangBang?


In-N-Out’s Secret Menu is about as secret as Area 51, but if you think that fast food innovation has ceased as a result, then prepare to be amazed, because I introduce to you: The McGangBang.

Now I’m sure some of you are scratching your head and wondering why you haven’t seen the McGangBang on the menu at your local McDonald’s recently, but worry not, because the McGangBang isn’t a sanctioned menu item. (Yet.)

Instead, it’s the clever creation of a very hungry (and probably stoned) McDonald’s customer that needed a cheap meal with a lot of flavor.

To create a McGangBang, simply order a McChicken and a Double Cheeseburger (both are on the Dollar Menu) and then take the McChicken sandwich and shove it between the patties of the Double Cheeseburger. The result is a chicken/beef hybrid that has cheese, crunch, and enough calories to fill you for the day, and it only costs $2.16.

Unsurprisingly, you may need to explain exactly what you’re trying to order if you want the McDonald’s employees to do the assembly for you, but apparently it’s become popular enough that at some locations that workers won’t even bat an eyelash when you slowly pronounce “McGangBang” into the drive-through window.

If you’d like to learn a little more history about this sandwich of sandwiches, then head on over to Eat Me Daily, where they’ve done their best to document the entire history of the tasty treat, including the first mention of the creation, the first successful order of the McGangBang at the drive-through, the first YouTube video of a McGangBang order, and more.

Just don’t forget to use protection. (And ketchup.)

…You can eat a lot of McDonald’s food?

While looking for a video of the Automatic McDonald’s Soda Machine, I came across another McDonald’s related video that I thought was pretty interesting: The $25 McDonald’s Food Challenge.

In the challenge, a person has to eat $25 worth of McDonald’s food in one sitting without… giving any back.

As you can see, it’s not a challenge that everyone is ready to take on, but given enough hunger and enough motivation, it’s definitely something that can be done:

I’m lovin’ it!

…McDonald’s is trying to be automatic?

The last time I was at a McDonald’s, I pulled up to the drive through window and was amazed by what I saw: A machine that prepares your entire drink order without ever needing human interaction.

Here’s the process it goes through: It drops the right size cup (depending on what you order) onto a conveyor belt, moves that cup under an ice dispenser and fills it with ice, moves the cup again under the right soda tap and fills it with the right amount of soda, waits for the fizz to die down, tops it off with more soda, and then moves to where the McDonald’s employee can pick it up. About the only thing it doesn’t do is add a lid, and my guess is that the ability to lid a drink isn’t far off.

Thankfully someone found this whole process as amazing as I did, because I was able to find this video of the machine on YouTube:

I’ve always felt that McDonald’s is going to do everything it can to cut its workers out of the process, and this drink machine just goes to show that the direction they’re heading in is definitely a fully automatic, robotic McDonalds.

Want fries with that?

…McDonald’s was flooded?

Flooded McDonald's

Superflex created an interesting art project called Flooded McDonald’s where a life-size replica of a McDonald’s interior was built, and then flooded with water.

Furniture is lifted up by the water, trays of food and drinks start to float around, electrics short circuit and eventually the space becomes completely submerged.

Flooded McDonald's Detail

The work doesn’t contain any further explanation, so it’s up to you to provide your own narrative, but with imagery like this, it shouldn’t be too hard.
