Get your pork-flavored soy (and whatever else they put in there) boners ready and lather yourself up in BBQ sauce-flavored corn syrup, because tomorrow October 9th is McRib day, the day when stomachs everywhere will spit out a “can’t read from the source file” error after trying to figure out what the hell a McRib is.
According to People
The popular fast food chain announced on Thursday that it will be bringing back the famous McRib sandwich, known for only appearing on their menu for limited time once a year.
“Mark your calendars, #McRib fans, because soon #McRibSZN will be back and saucier than ever!” McDonald’s shared on Twitter Monday alongside a promotional video that revealed the sandwiches would officially be back at all selected locations on Oct. 9. Their earlier press release stated the sandwiches would begin appearing on Monday.
The announcement of the return of the McRib is only the beginning, because McDonald’s also created a mcdfinder, so people can find participating restaurants. I guess they saw what happened with the guy who sued Popeyes for running out of chicken sandwiches.
To help fans locate the closest participating restaurant, McDonald’s created the mcdfinder.com website where customers can enter their zip code to find the closest locations.
“We’re always listening to our customers and we know the McRib has some of the most loyal fans,” Chef Chad Schafer, a senior executive with the company, said in a news release. “This year we’re excited to give every McRib fan new ways to show their love for the sandwich with our saucy McRib GIFs so they can celebrate the season no matter where they live.”
So I know some messes are excited about this, but I’m going to say something controversial: the amount of BBQ sauce they put on these ribs freaks me out. It’s SO much and it looks so sweet. I mean, how do you eat it without looking like you just got in a face-stabbing fight? I guess it’s a good sandwich if you want to do a bunch of blow in the bathroom and get a bloody nose, just so you can blame it on the McRib you ate. See we don’t need Lindsay Lohan’s defunct lifestyle app! Just always have a McRib nearby.
