I'm sure it would have been delicious if they'd left out the bbq sauce. Hot McDonald's fries + a chocolate shake = The greatest food ever. Chicken nuggets wouldn't be a bad alternative.

There are 2 things that are good at McDonalds:

1. Using your hot fries as "spoons" to eat your plain ice cream.
2. Chocolate shakes.

This goes too far.

From the comment section, I give you The Cornedbeeftini: “rim” the glass with thinly sliced, 1×3 strips of lean corned beef; prepare a shake of a dollop of brown spicy mustard, a shot of Dr. Brown’s Cream Soda and the varnish of your choosing (preferably something smoky, like Wild Turkey or any good Scotch). Pour, and please enjoy.

I think we've reached the point where anything in a martini glass is a -tini of some kind. Pour some Schlitz in? Milwaukee Martini. Vodka & pickle juice? KosherPickleTini. Piss in it? Masochistini.

I once was feeling a bit jaunty and ordered a Watermelon Martini from some place near MacDougal Street with some garlic fries. It was Ok, but too sweet. I was, however, disappointed that they didn't use a watermelon slice as a garnish, but that probably would've caused it to tip over into my fries, ruining the whole experience for everybody involved. Anyway's mixers and -tini's are ultimately for kids, rookies and apologists.

Open the McDonalds bag. Eat one McNugg each, followed by two bites of the Filet-o-Fish (make sure you don’t tell anyone that you eat Filet-o-Fishes).

You can do worse than the filet-o-fish (of which I am a fan), like everything else at McDonalds. It's seriously one of the few items from that I can stomach.

Dude I'm a 20-something and I'm sick of them. Hearing about wacky people doing awesome things every once in a while stimulates and encourages the mind to do other interesting and original things. Hearing about them every single freaking day just wears you down and makes you not want to do anything, because somewhere on the internet someone has already done something kind of like whatever you were thinking of and their friends all think it's wonderful.

Indeed. I think that this drink may be a re-invention. The memory of the original instance must have been lost after the admixture immediately and fatally sickened its creator, and ended the life of a well known musician as well. "....choking to death...."

This is possibly the truest thing that I've read all month. I fully support these young ladies in their cute wacky girlness -- I mean, if I knew them personally this would be the sort of thing that would be marvelously endearing -- but there does come a point where internet whimsy becomes a little bit too whimsical.

"Of course, duh."

"But what about food?"

"Well, there is a McArches in the same parking lot…"

"McDonald's and Absolute? That doesn't sound very good…"

"Yeah, but after the flavored Absolute, we'll only have enough for, like, some nuggets or something, maybe a drink."

"Well, can we write about it on the internet, and act like it was a gag, and like we aren't just drunks?"

I don't get why people think Absolut is a good vodka (or hell, any flavoured vodka is a good vodka). Then again, I also don't get people who insist on Grey Goose or some other overpriced vodka. Everyone knows that Finlandia is the sweet spot for great vodka/$. Sheesh people.

I was unsympathetic to all the boyzone / cooter / "i'd hit it" arguments a few months ago but I was wrong. I get it now. It's impossible for a woman to do anything on the internet without her appearance coming into play. And that sucks.

On the other hand, if this had been two dorky guys instead of good-looking women I doubt it ever would've gotten enough attention to warrant a MeFi post. And that sucks too. So it goes both ways.

Today sucks. I need a drink. And some greasy fried food would be ok too. BUT NOT IN THE SAME GLASS DAMMIT

When I was a transplanted American teenager in Spain, I was shocked and overjoyed to discover that every fast food place - not that Mickey D's and the King had yet completed their world domination, but even in Palma we had Wimpy bars - served alcohol. Better yet, as far as I could figure out, there was no drinking age in Spain in the early 80s. So my friends and I happily ate greasy wimpyburgers and drank, god help us, kahlua and milk, because we were 16 and liked that sort of thing. Yes, 16. We grew out of it before we hit our cute 20 something years and there was no internet back then anyway so we weren't inspired to throw the whole thing into a blender. Thank the fast food gods.
