…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.)

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Formula Drift?

On Saturday, I had the chance to go and see Formula D’s “The Finals” at Irwindale Speedway (yes, I did get stuck on Interstate 5 on the way down from San Francisco due to that massive accident), and I must say, if you’re at all a fan of the four wheeled machine, make sure you check out one of Formula Drift’s events at a track near you.

If you’re not familiar with the sport, think of drifting as two automotive ballerinas battling it out in a boxing match. It’s gracefully controlled mayhem, and in my opinion, it’s easily the best form of four-wheeled entertainment on the planet.
