That's good! I was laughing a bit too loudly, considering I'm at work.

Perhaps they were advertising their apple pies instead?

Speaking of McDonald's dollar menu ads, does anybody else HATE the TV ads as much as I do? There's one with the guy and his girlfriend sitting on the hood of his car, and one with the guy at the desk in some office (maybe a DMV) checking out a good-looking woman sitting in the waiting area. My god, those commercials are awful. They should replace them with the phrase from that banner ad. Posted Image

Why do people have to be so judgemental?

Maybe he loves the double cheeseburger. Did any of you callous bastards ever think of that?

Thanks. I may never be able to eat a McDonald's burger again.

Edit: but come to think of it that would also explain the hair (yes . . . that kind of hair) I found in a McDonald's burger a few years back.

Although I firmly believe that McDonalds is not advocating hot man on sandwich action, it is quite obvious that they did not do their homework on urban slang.

Hah. Thats just too funny. Posted Image

Well, given how most of McDonald's food tastes, I'd guess that this would actually be a better use for it...

Heh, they have a picture in that Fark thread of the gigantic burger that Kate Stelnick ate, and also one of the enormous dude with a helmet who lost to her in the contest. Posted Image

Ya know, it's really not a bad looking sandwich. Not exactly my type, but if I were still drinking, anything's possible...

Thanks to this thread, I now know the exact meaning behind this slogan I'm used to seeing.

Anyone hear about the nationwide one day sale (today) on hamburgers ($0.39) and cheeseburgers ($0.49) at McDonald's?
