Supersize THIS, food nazis!
Happy Birthday, Big Mac:
"Normally, a 40-year-old sandwich would be something to be avoided. Unless you're one of millions who flock to McDonald's each year to chow down on a Big Mac. The triple-decker burger, which helped breed America's super-size culture and restaurants' ever-expanding jumbo meals, is turning 40. For some fast-food junkies, that's cause for celebration.
"'The flavors that come together — it's like heaven in your mouth,' said April Kohlhaas, a 31-year-old Chicago resident. 'It's just tradition, like American comfort food.'
"The Big Mac was first introduced in 1967 by Jim Delligatti, a McDonald's franchise owner in Uniontown, Pa. A year later, it became a staple of McDonald's menus nationwide."
I very rarely eat at McDonald's. Today, however, I'm gonna get a Bic Mac as my way of stickin' it to all the food nazis who think McDonald's is evil incarnate.
Update: Joltin' Django visited his local McDonald's ce soir. He ate two(!) Big Macs, and he drank a Coke. Each time he bit into one of his Bic Macs, Joltin' Django imagined that he was kicking Morgan Spurlock soundly 'tween his legs.
