McDonald’s Breakfast

9 06 2008

Getting breakfast at McDonald’s is a lot like going to Red Lobster when you’re really really hungry: it seems like a great idea until the moment you start eating.

McDonald’s breakfast is undeniably tasty. They’ve introduced some fairly controversial items in recent years (the McGriddle, breakfast burrito, and southern-style chicken biscuit being the most contemporary), but overall there are few things more wonderful than the idea of a savory sausage, egg, and cheese biscuit washed down with a pair of hash browns and an ice coffee (see the coming Aside).

Figure 1: Oxymoron

Aside: Fuck Starbucks

You cannot order anything at Starbucks without sounding like a complete and utterly pompous asshole. There is no way to say “Double-tall skim mocha macchiato” and still be a populist. I went with my boss to a Starbucks a few months ago for a status meeting. After realizing how stuck up we sounded after ordering our drinks, we skipped the meeting and instead spent the next hour on the phone apologizing to our fathers.

McDonald’s ice coffee is awesome for two reasons: 1.) it’s just as tasty as ice coffee you can get at Starbucks, and 2.) it’s 10,000 times cheaper. It’s so cheap, you can cost-effectively bathe in it. Starbucks, whose popularity has been waning anyway since the circa-2002 fallout of the popping of the go-go 90s yuppie douchebag bubble*, now has what I hope will be the final nail in its coffin that’ll send it spiraling into the purgatoric realm of functioning unprofitability that’d make even Amazon.com say “you guys are FUCKED.”

End Aside

You realize that ordering McDonald’s breakfast was a bad idea right around the moment you pull the sandwich out of the bag. The wrapping on the sandwich is greasier than a 14 year old’s face. When you remove the wrapping, you realize that the grease and the paper actually weigh more than the sandwich. In spite of this, the sandwich still looks incredibly tasty and you can’t wait to eat it…but you set it aside for a moment to warm up with some hash browns.

Figure 2: Quite possibly the most delicious thing on the planet

If you have a penis, you carry a bottle of hot sauce with you at all times and you douse the hash browns with it. You wolf down the fried, spicy, greasy, artery-clogging, potatoey goodness of three or four hashbrowns, which will render you prepared for the main McBuscuity event staring you down from its oily cage.

Aside from enjoying the awesome tastiness, your main concern while eating a McBiscuit sammich is making sure that the biscuit doesn’t completely fall apart as you eat it. The flakiness of a McDonald’s biscuit is part of what makes it delicious – but you don’t want to be one of those people picking at little leftover biscuit chunks at the end of the meal. This would be an indication of bad management skills and, if your boss catches you doing it, he or she will probably fire you. You perform this two-step dance of enjoying the biscuit’s taste and managing the biscuit’s constitution for roughly 2 minutes, and then you spend the next 10 hours questioning your judgment.

McDonald’s breakfast leaves your stomach insanely full. It’s not the good kind of full that you feel after Christmas or Thanksgiving dinner. Rather, it’s more like the kind of full I’d imagine contestants have after being on Fear Factor – that is, you feel like you are literally full of shit. You start to realize that the saying “it’s the journey, not the destination” applies especially well to McDonald’s breakfast: the journey was one of unmitigated succulence…but the destination is you feeling like, and possibly even resembling, this guy:

Figure 3: The journey of 1000 miles begins with the first step, which you are now too fat to take.

The most interesting (and terrifying) thing about McDonald’s breakfast is the fact that this relatively tiny meal will leave you full for an extraordinary amout of time. I treated myself to McDonald’s breakfast last Thursday. I finished eating around 9:45 that morning and wasn’t hungry again until 7pm that night. I’m pretty sure I could digest a motorcycle battery in about the same amount of time.

Anything that sits in your stomach that long does so because it’s not digesting, and things that don’t digest aren’t food. This explains why McDonald’s restaurants, despite often being filthy, are never cited for health code violations: it’s because they aren’t technically serving food. They’re just giving you shit that tastes good, costs money, makes your stomach hurt, and leaves you wondering why the hell you wanted it in the first place.

McDonald’s breakfast is, essentially, a vagina.

* The late 90’s, from what I remember, was an era of conspicuous consumption that hadn’t been seen in more than a decade. This is when shit like giant SUVs and Starbucks became popular – because it was hip to order a $7 cup of morning coffee and burn nine gallons of gas during your morning commute. Nowadays, the opposite is true: it’s now hip to act, dress, and behave like you’re poor even if you have a six-figure salary and you think a carburetor is a rival to the South Beach Diet. This type of feigned economic status is not to be confused with CUFFS, which is didactic and motivated by spite – unlike hipsterism which is vain and motivated by bullshit.

McDonald’s breakfast usually turns my stomach as soon as I think about it. The hotcakes (that actually win first place to my own homemade pancakes) and hashbrowns are exempt. I refuse to eat any meat from fast food places. When I saw Fast Food Nation, it made me puke.

Let us not forget how delicious orange juice tastes after hash browns from McDonald’s. Damn.

That being said, I haven’t eaten fast food in nearly two months and I feel fucking outstanding. I had some home-made fried chicken recently and it made me feel like shit. I think I’m going to shun fried foods from now on too, so that I don’t end up feeling like the guy in Figure 3 for 10 to 12 hours of my day.

Great post – great because it was funny, and funny because of how disturbingly true it all is.

My brother told me that there were reports that Mickey D’s was looking into making breakfast food available all day. If that was to happen, OHHH BOYYY!!! I actaully prefer Burger King Crossaint sandwiches but MD’s works just as well.

I don’t normally do Mickey D’s. I’m a big chick with high blood pressure so McDonald’s = Death for me.

However, I am a part of that group that you mentioned who are concerned about finances regardless of how much you have.

So, I order a couple of books from amazon. What do I get with my order but two coupons for free sandwiches. One is for the new chicken breakfast biscuit and the other is for the new fried chicken sandwich.

I tried the chick sandwich first. It was delish. Really, really good and not just edible.

Before I took my first bite I lifted the top bun to see what was inside. There were just a couple of pickles and the top of the bun was a little wet. (I thought it was pickle juice.)

I bought more books and got more free sandwiches. As I’m on my third or 4th chicken sandwich I mention to a friend during a phone call how much I liked them and that it was becoming a habit. I explain that for something so simple, the sandwich tastes really good.

She tells me it’s the butter. I’m like what butter? She proceeds to tell me that what I thought was pickle juice was really butter. LOL. I’m like I can’t believe McDonalds put butter on fried chicken. No wonder it taste so good.

I swear I gained 10 lbs. that week on free sandwiches. I had to give my other coupons away before I gave myself a heart attack.

Oh, and that coffee, the caramel iced coffee, 32oz for a buck beats Starbucks in every way………LOL.

I love the McMuffin with bacon (not that nasty sausage patty) purely because i can tell what each item is and they use a real egg in it. The trouble is, as you say, that I feel like it’s made of lead as soon as it hits my stomach. And 10 hours later the kids WILL be dropped off at the pool and it won’t be easy.

By the way, those hashbrowns…they are like, fried Jesus potatoes. I want to eat them every day of my life. I hated the hotcakes and my dad always insisted on getting them even though I never finished them. I always ended up making a McMuffin with my bacon, muffin and eggy bits.

Hashbrowns have replaced fries as McD’s new choice of crack. I don’t know why but I hate myself for liking them as much as I do. At least I know what’s in the hashbrowns. The McNuggets? Not so much.

Okay, NOW we’re back on track and in agreement. You’ve pretty much outlined exactly why McDonald’s is horrible. The food tastes AMAZING…but the problem is, it’s not really FOOD, hence why your body won’t digest it like it should. It’s so addictive, but it can, and ultimately WILL, kill you if choose to consume it on a regular basis. You know, it’s funny that marijuana, crack cocaine, speed, PCP, and drugs of the like* are illegal, yet McDonald’s has been allowed to remain in business for decades. And with that said, I’m headed to Mickie D’s for a 12 piece order of nuggets and some fries!

And me personally, I always was a sucker for the hot cakes and sausage…the sausage biscuit was a secondary choice for when I just needed a change, and the McGriddle was good for when I was on the go. But for basically the same reasons you outlined, I haven’t eaten McDonald’s breakfast in quite sometime…although part of that might have to do with me not wanting to go to a fast food joint in the morning for food when, I’d be just as content to eat a bowl of cereal or microwave frozen eggo’s.

*I don’t actually consume any of those listed substances, just used them to make my point. lol

Talking about Starbucks, do you really think their popularity has waned? But even if that was true, I would not want to see myself in a McDonald’s place. Well first of all I am seriouslly loding weight and being in that place would set me back a very long way.

I still think that McDonald’s has lodt the shhen they had in the 1980s when at least it looked like they knew what they were doing. In my humble kopinion they still have a menu problem.

(literally) i was riding with someone yesterday and they were like; lets go to McDonalds, my treat. Yaaaaa, i said. (shiiiiiittttttt) You get tired of explaining your diet. (not to be confused with a plan to loose weight) jus roll with it and do or don’t do what you’re gonna don’t. on the fast food tip, i fucks with The King. they at least offer a veggie burger. btw, what the fuck is in sausage. egggggzzzzzactly. get the fuck outta here. i just threw up in my mouth a lil bit.

I was contemplating getting McD’s breakfast today because I have a friend over I have to drop at the train station soon. Now I can’t because you are right. I love the taste but hate the feeling afterwards.

Riddle me this. Is there anywhere that serves a healthy breakfast sans you making one at home? I was contemplating making a fast food joint that actually sold delicious food that is good for you but 1) not a business man 2) Couldn’t put up with people being super picky about their food.

Starbucks, I never say Venti or whatever bullshit. I always say Medium or actually Small because there is no point drinking 20 Oz. of coffee. It makes me feel better then the douche bags around me. Another thing I do which is assholish is describe the drink instead of saying it because I don’t drink there enough and I actually do at times forget what I want. Theres a little bit of I don’t want to say the names of the items in there too.

9 06 2008

@ Michael who writes: “Starbucks, I never say Venti or whatever bullshit. I always say Medium or actually Small because there is no point drinking 20 Oz. of coffee.

Michael, those ass holes are trained to pretend like they don’t know what you mean by small. they will correct you faster than quick can get ready. then all the other Starbucks assholes will look at you like; 1.) you’re holding up the line. 2.) your poor form makes you a peasant. you will hear a quiet hush and old glares that make you feel even worse than the feeling you were trying to avoid in the first place. fuckem though, keep doing you.

if they correct you tellem to have a: double fuck u, caramel soy, dick wat, pussy cloth, grande and walk the fuck out and go have a gas station/donut shop coffee and be the fuck happy.

I am literally laughing out loud. Like Bubbly I no longer mess with Mickey D’s. Fast Food nation will make you think twice about eating fast food period. Especially the part about why the fries taste so good. lmao

I watched Fast Food Nation a little while back…now my stomach LITERALLY hurts at the thought of eating most anything from McD’s. I have to be REALLY hungry, and they are the only place within miles. Before I stopped eating it, though, my fave breakfast item was the Bacon/Egg/Cheese McGriddle…time saver, you know LOL.
Being the coffee fiend I am, I TOTALLY love that Iced Coffee…best idea they had in years. You can’t beat that $1.99 large size. I had somebody tell me it tasted watered down…I was like, Yeah, if you take three hours to drink it.

I don’t eat FAST food, but i have a PROBLEM with McDonalds now..
While i went to school in Atlanta i got addicted to “SWEET TEA” aka “Liquid Crack” we didn’t have it in NYC… So i was able to kick the Liquid Crack.
McDonalds just started serving liquid crack in NYC… DAMN DEVIL”s Servants. I drive my lil mini cooper (yes I am 6’1) to the drive thru and order JUST A SWEET TEA, all my friends laughed at me when i bought my car but now i am laughing as it only cost me 45 dollars to fill up and i can park my car anywhere)…
They lady at the drive thru looks at me like i am crazy because i order anything but Sweet Tea for $1.08… Sadly i have correct change as i pull up, Blasting Camp Lo’s first album.
I am like Pookie when it comes to Sweet Tea… only thing missing is me in a dark room sweating and i try to get the straw in my CUP to drink my tea.
Diabetes is going to go up 50% in Harlem because of McDonalds.
DAMMMMMMMMMMMM MCDONALDS…. what’s next Popeye’s and Church’s are going to combine forces? Serving POPEYES CHICKEN with Churches HONEY BUTTER BISCUITS? ? It’s a PLOT TO DESTROY US AS A PEOPLE!

Those damn McGriddles get me everytime. I know there is something unnatural about syrup in a pancake-like muffin/bun but dammit if they aren’t the tastiest things ever. I always question my judgement after I have one but yet I go back for more. And that sweet tea….it’s the devil’s handiwork and will probably be the source of my impending diabetes if I keep drinking it.

@ Landon…
Sweet Tea is a REQUIREMENT in the South…it’s like, the best drink EVER for most meals. I say this…yet I only drink it when I’m in the mood…and then I go buy the gallon jug at the local grocery store. I drink it like water, it’s gone, and then I don’t drink it again until the next urge, weeks/months later.

See, I’m all about the Bacon Egg and Cheese and Heart Attack at McDonald’s. A Bacon/Egg/cheese biscuit is HEAVEN when you put grape jelly on it. MMM…of course, I pay for it hours later (as you do with McDonald’s “food”) But then I read Fast Food Nation…holy hell. I’ve (mostly) quit fast food, but here are the things that get me on those cheat days:
* Chick-Fil-A’s chocolate shakes. Seriously, they put crack in that shit. I’ve been known to have two of them in a day. And each of them has 700 calories–no joke.
* Sonic hamburgers. Probably the only thing worse than a Sonic burger is a Burger King burger; a Big Mac is actually healthier than a Sonic burger

I haven’t experienced vagina, but I will liken McBreakfast to hooking up with a man who I have hooked up with before, knowing that it won’t be great and that I will feel like vomiting when all is said and done.*

I don’t eat those rubbery-ass pancakes anymore. They were great when I was a kid, but as an adult woman I am too capable of whipping up my own superior flapjacks or driving to a diner than to mess with those. The egg and cheese biscuit with jelly or syrup is that crack though. I’ve learned to eat one with a cold drink, no hash brown, to avoid the feeling of death.

Did you all know that Burger King’s “Croissanwich” is now served on a croissant shaped bun made from the same burger bun ingredients? I thought my mind was playing tricks on me, but the nutrition facts confirmed that it is NOT a croissant.

And then I feel sorry for myself for wasting $700 worth of gas on straight lard, and I go to the farmer’s market to buy some Naked or Boathouse Juice to feel better about life.

McDonald’s iced coffee is decent, but I’d like to vote for Dunkin’ Donuts which has been kicking Starbucks’ ass for quite some time. If you can deal with the angry employees, you’ll save money and you can order a small in your own language.

Ok, I just have to come out of lurker mode and comment. Ugh! McDonald’s I haven’t eaten it for a few years now, because the last time I had it, I spend 24 hours throwing up and dying a slow death from the bacon, egg and cheese biscuit, hash browns, and orange juice. It was an awful day. I couldn’t get out of bed for 3 days after that. About the rest of the menu: there can’t possibly be real meat in that “food.” A real hamburger doesn’t smell like a McDonald’s hamburger…but then I have heard that the scent is added.

I been on McD’s breakfast burritos lately… i rationalize that its the least unhealthy thing on the breakfast menu…. and its bangin!

And I went to Starbucks last week and the chick takin’ orders actually asked me if I wanted a “large,” and I paused looking real brand new, thinking “don’t ALL these words mean large?” <– I think I got punked.

Anybody from the Carolinas, or GA (maybe VA but i’m not sure) knows what a Biscuitville is (u gotta) an knows that those biscuits are untouchable!

@Landon – I know a guy who literally went to the Taco Bell between Morehouse’s campus and the West End Mall and his burrito had crack in it. He had to get his stomach pumped and they found crack that was apparently in his food.

Dunkin Donuts wins hands down, but we only have like TWO where I live. I hate Starbucks just because I load my coffee with cream and sugar anyway, so even the bad gas station coffee tastes the same to me.

The McDonalds coffee is really good. I hope Starbucks shuts down just so I dont have to see those tall stupid paper cups around my office anymore. They GIVE us free coffee here and these status yuppies are too damn good to drink it.

I read the McDonalds case in law school. Damn them, those chicken nuggets are not even comprised of real chicken MEAT. Technically, chicken “parts” is in included. Question: why are some nuggets round and the others have that little foot off the end…thats not natural

Sometimes I treat myself to an Icky D’s breakfast on Sundays before church because there isn’t one by my job and it’s the quickest thing for me to grap before boarding the train. But it’s always a big mistake. Even when I think I am getting over the system by ordering just a biscuit, egg and cheese sandwich with no hash brown and a bottled water, once the water hits my body after the sordid mess of a meal it expands in my stomach and I walk around feeling like Violet Beauregarde from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

Dunkin Donuts:

1, They have the best Coffe, they buy a higher grain of Coffee Bean on the ag. Market. (Starbucks just over roast them)… my boy who trades coffee beans told me that one.
2. Dunkin donuts is cheaper and not half bad food of late…

i died. once from “McD = vag” comment and once again from how dead on my man is.

this is exactly how my day went down last Friday. I was HYPE for this breakfast. the fact that im up and out the house before 10:30 makes me think that McD breakfast is the perfect reward. and then Ronald McfucinDonald laughs in your face like “gotcho ass!” I wanted to kill someone like a half hour after that Deluxe platter.

all hail the McGriddle. its everything you could want in a breakfast sandwich–pancake (with the syrup and butter BAKED INTO THAT ISH), egg, cheese, meat. i wanna shake the hand of whoever came up with that, and them with the same hand slap the sh!t outta them.

to the McSkillet burrito… to quote The Dream: “f^ck that ni99a.”

lastly, the sweet tea and chicken biscuit coming to NY McD in the same time frame… they are DEFINITELY trying to take us out one darkie at a time. but on the other hand… would it be asking too much to throw in some hot sauce packets in there?

TheChad- She asked you if you wanted a large because she inferred that you didnt know the difference between a ‘tall’ (small), ‘grande’ (medium) or ‘venti’ (large). I worked at the Starbucks on campus when I was in college, and I was a little snobby about the product cause there had been a Starbucks in my hood since I was really little. Nothing pissed me off more than somebody fresh from Bumfuck, AL coming in asking for a “Large Caramel Mochachino”. Bitch, what the fuck is that? Or when they would order a cappucino and get mad like “This don’t taste nothing like the cappucinos I be getting at the gas station!”. Then take yo’ uncultured ass back to the gas station! Why are you spending $4 on something and you don’t know what the fuck it is?

There is a liquor store in NE DC where they take pictures of people who steal from their store. Well, under one man’s picture, they wrote “DIRTY MOUSE”. For the longest, I couldn’t understand what that meant. Did he throw a mouse into the store? ( I have seen this happen). Finally, I realized they were calling him a ‘dirty rat’.

Man they reopened the krispy kreme in richmond when I was in college, with the actual donut (heehee) machine process visible. It was right on the direct bus line to campus too, where the bootleg mall, payless and everything else you need to for your school apartment was. My teenytiny roommate and I would pop by and get a dozen hot plain donuts. If we had to wait for the bus on the way back for even 1 minute half those donuts were gone. We didnt open them on the bus though cuz country nickels down there wouldn’t think twice about asking for a doughnut and then try to cuss you out for not giving up one of a dozen. Krispy Kreme tries to kill you though by making a dozen donuts cheaper than buying 2. If you want to buy 3 fucking donuts from their asses they are always talkiing you into getting a dozen because its just aobut the same price. Evil!

@ Landon & JG – Sadly, the Popeye’s on Ponce (across from the Church’s) has been closed for about a year now, due to a fire. However, they’ve got a sign up now that says they’ll be opening soon. Now that I know it’s okay to want the Church’s biscuits with the Popeye’s chicken, I’ll be fulfilling my fantasy soon.

I had to stop eating everything at McDonald’s except for the breakfast, and that’s only every once in a while. Have you ever noticed how horrible you car smells after eating McDonald’s fries? And the things that the Chicken McNuggets could do to my stomach were death-defying. That being said, since I am a self-described “potato freak”, I still succumb to those hash browns, and then eat a yogurt parfait to feel better about my sins.

From Tucker Max, RE: The McGriddle:

Tucker Max: “Dude–That thing looks disgusting. It has to be nasty, with the syrup shit in it. What is that?”

SlingBlade : “I can only assume from your cavalier attitude that you have not yet partake of the wonderment that is the McGriddle. Let me enlighten you. What happens is the One True God grows them on trees in the Elysian Fields using a heretofore unused incantation. He then proceeds to magic them down to your local eatery where whatever Ghetto Bastard cook your McDonalds has rescued from welfare that week proceeds to wrap it in cellophane and pass it along to you, the fortunate consumer. You proceed to ingest this finery in the vain hope that your obviously overmatched taste buds can somehow grasp the delectable intricacies it is suddenly faced with. Is that egg? why yes it is, and bacon too. But wait-They didnt add… yes they did, yes they did indeed. They added cheese. And then, then my friends, they wrapped it in a sumptuous pancake bun! As your taste buds try to process that amazing piece of information, IT hits them… the syrup nugget. THE MOTHERFUCKING SYRUP NUGGET!!! It announces itself with a burst of confectionery grandiosity the likes of which your palate has never seen.”

Tucker Max : “So you like them?”

SlingBlade : “if you EVER speak ill of the McGriddle again I will personally force-feed you one while I fuck you in the butt using the wrapper as a condom and then donkey punch you when the infused syrup nuggets explode in your mouth.”

I’m like that, if I get bad service I just never go back to a place. I think in this case it has worked out for the best. Mickey D’s is not healthy and I also save a lot of money since I have pretty much stopped eating fast food in general.

Breakfast food is my favorite kind of meal, but unfortunately I can only digest a McDonald’s breakfast after I’ve been awake for several hours (unless i am sitting on a toilet as I eat it), so I usually miss the awesomeness that is the McGriddle. Clearly, SlingBlade, i don’t know what I’m missing. In order to get my bacon, grits and waffles fix, I cook breakfast for dinner once a week. . .
I remember BK had a breakfast sandwich that included eggs, bacon, sausage, and some other pork/fatty substance that = 700 calories, and to my understanding, 700 = instantaneous death. Has anyone every eaten that monstrosity and if so, how was it and why aren’t you dead?

* The late 90’s, from what I remember, was an era of conspicuous consumption that hadn’t been seen in more than a decade. This is when shit like giant SUVs and Starbucks became popular – because it was hip to order a $7 cup of morning coffee and burn nine gallons of gas during your morning commute. Nowadays, the opposite is true: it’s now hip to act, dress, and behave like you’re poor even if you have a six-figure salary and you think a carburetor is a rival to the South Beach Diet. This type of feigned economic status is not to be confused with CUFFS, which is didactic and motivated by spite – unlike hipsterism which is vain and motivated by bullshit.

LOL!!! I live in NYC where there are far too many BS earthy hipsters.

Typically SMUG earthy hipster:
– Ratty-looking ponytail or ratty-looking haircut
– Expensive shades
– No deoderant (Why can’t they at least use Tom’s of Maine?)
– Cheap-looking yet pricy organic top with organic cargo shorts or vintage (i.e., filthy and/or destroyed) jeans
– Birkenstock sandals
– Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s reusable bags in tow
– Rolled-up yoga mat slung over back
– Venti Starbucks cup in hand
– Rents cozy apartment in Lower Manhattan for $4000/month and may live with 3 other people.
– Usually says “I only do organic” or “I live a green lifestyle” in this ultra smug tone

As a student, and resident of Winston-Salem NC, for four years, I can attest to the fact that they do NOT care about black people. Twice a year Krispy Kreme would sponsor students to sell their donuts by the dozens on campus! And for a fraction of the original price!

In addition to damn-near-free donuts (!), I also could not drive a quarter mile from campus without hitting a McDonalds, a Bojangles, a Burger King, and a Forsyth Seafood. Dont even get me started on the Arbys, Wendys, Cook-Out, and Hardees that were less than 5 minutes away.

I saw fast food places there I have never even heard of, like Pig Pickins, and saw people eat things like fried Snickers Bars.

Winston-Salem, NC is where nutition went to die.

The other was a Pizza Hut stuffed crust pizza. (I never thought there was such a thing as too much cheese until i ate a piece of this pizza.)

1. I admit I have read both books, just for laughs. But I tried to buck the system by checking them out at the library, so as to avoid putting money in her pocket. I digress…if she applied her head game to her grammar and checking out the chronology of her stories, the books would be easier to read.
2. One of my girls sent out one of her sessions and told the rest of us to step our head game up…she came at the D hard…but her technique is admired by every man I know. It could be the gift that keeps on giving (that’s not an STD).

@Muse, London, et. al;

Stank cooch has nothing to do with being fat, but it’s definitely an epidemic. Sometimes, I can’t even use the employee restroom because some nasty ass has filled the entire room with her rancid crotch funk. I actually threw up once by walking into a cloud of it suddenly. I know it’s not just one person, eiter. Sometimes I can detect two distintly different types of funky cooch. I don’t work with women my age, either. The gen pop is 40+. There’s no reason why a grown ass woman shouldn’t be able to clean her folds properly. It’s maddening. And (literally) sickening.

9 06 2008

Yes there are. Only McDonalds could find a way to make a fruit and walnut salad fattening in some way or another.

Way off topic: This kid just came up to the desk and asks where the QA section is in the library. I say it’s downstairs and to the left. Why does this kid hesitantly wander downstairs and then look around like he’s lost? Go downstairs and then to the left, dumbass. You’re supposed to be majoring in Engineering but he can’t get directions right?

And a dirty snatch can be smelled from at least 10 feet away. The girls at my school’s gym are disgusting and I can smell their fat gunts from one elliptical machine over.

Somebody mentioned a steak and egg sandwich. This is for ST and whoever else is in Newark. Place called Altas Horas in the Ironboudn near the Pathmark on Ferry st. Makes sammichs. The best sammiches you ever had pick either chicken, burger or steak. They will put on there bacon, cheese, fried egg, slice of ham, Potato Sticks and this crazy corn and mayo sauce (Ask them not to do that, piece of corn in mayo is not a good look). Then they have this creamy pink sauce or creamy green sauce you can put on yo shit. Delicious. I go there when I wake up in the afternoon and my friends want lunch and I want breakfast. I get my eggs bacon cheese and breakfast steak all in one go. And the shit is cheap, like 5 dolla for a bigass sammich.

I had a roommate my first semester in college that had stank cooch…I mean, it was HORRID. I’d walk into the room and sometimes be blown away by the smell. She borrowed a pair of my shorts one day and when she finally gave them back (unwashed I might add), I had to burn them. I tried putting her azz out of the room (because of the funk and other issues), but the dorm folks made me take her back. I was NEVER as glad as I was in Dec. of that year when I was FREE. Stank cooch is NOT a myth…and those that have it are painfully oblivious. It usually indicates some sort of bacterial infection…

Anyway, I can only cosign on McD’s breakfast as hangover food. I rarely get hangovers (I’m much more likely to wake up still drunk strange as it is), but when I do, I get the worst craving for those greasy hash browns, an egg and cheese biscuit and OJ.

@Willnot, yeah, the palefaces were starting to trickle in, when I left. I mean, Booker, and whomever comes after him if he’s unseated in the near future, has a lot of work cut out. James was there further corrupting the city when it was already on it’s knees. It’s basically like Obama’s first term is gonna be- spending the bulk of it trying to undo what Dumbya did. My love for Brick city I admit, is mostly sentimental because it’s my home. People generally have a one dimensional view of the city, though. I know downtown ( I hope they don’t violate the Irounbound, though) is gonna be virally gentrified soon, but I’m hopeful that the other areas can manage being revitalized, while maintaining their flavor, and COLOR, LOL.

S’funny i see them trying to turn downtown into jersey city but unlike gentrification other places, white people dont seem to be having it in newark. Even the bohemians dont want to live downtown even with the new upscale apartments and you know the Portuguese wont let their asses into the ironbound. Which is the ideal place for gentrifiers. I wish harlem was more like that, where black people own all the places to live and wouldn’t sell them/rent them out to gentrifiers. le sigh. at least people still yell at white people on the street up there 🙂

HeavenLei, forget the kids, at least they’re too young to have sense (bless their stupid little hearts), I just wanted to trip and then slap every person I saw out running today. And of course it’s mostly 80 pound white chicks probably afraid they might gain an ounce if they miss one day. I’m a regular runner myself, so I understand the mental drive…but really, since I couldn’t get my ass up at the asscrack of dawn this morning to run while it was *only* 75 degrees and no sun, I took the L and walked to my AIR-CONDITIONED gym, and I’m okay with that!

I am not going to lie after work i am going to the driving range to work on my Short Irons and Chip Game… even though its HOT ass Hell out there. I really want to get my golf game on the next level. I just cant play basketball or football how i use to from my Knee Injuries. I am only 27 and i am out there with two knees braces and need more ADVIL then a 60 year old man when i come home.

I love going to upscale driving range, with just a Wife Beater and dress pants on… Hitting the living SHit out the ball longer than the most of the golfers out there… they look at me in disbelief that this Negro can hit the ball better than they can… There is something satisfying in that moment…

1. Krispy Kreme doughnuts are outstanding. Unfortunately, cardiac arrest is what they cook them in.

2. Krystal’s is SO bootleg. I’ve been once, and I shant visit again.

3. F*** McDonald’s and all other fast food chains. If I eat my own food I’ll eat around 1500-2000 calories a day. Eating there will get you 2000-5.6M calories in one sitting.

@Landon: I love basketball so much, but my sports of choice have pretty much been reduced to running (non-competitively) and golf. I’ve already had one surgery to remove scar tissue from my patellar tendon and to repair and clean up my lateral meniscus. The next surgery is probably only a few years around the corner since as soon as I got around 85% on my knee I started pounding away on the basketball court.

Am I the only one who doesn’t like Krispy Kremes? I never thought they were all that, but a few years ago when I had my first car, I went in there because I was excited that I could get there with such ease and bought a ton of dougnut holes and ate them all in one sitting. I died that day. When I came back to life, I vowed never to eat one again.

Oh shit, you said the two magic words – Five Guys. Not only are Five Guys burgers delicious, but they’re also remarkably more healthy than you think because all the ingredients are fresh. To top it all off, the fries are made from potatoes and cooked in peanut oil…which is why they taste kind of peanutty. Either way, I love me some Five Guys. They’ve expanded too – there’s one in Atlanta, and in two weeks at my friend’s wedding in Dallas, I plan on sneaking to eat one at the local mall for dinner before the wedding just incase the food is el garbago.

Even McDonalds doesn’t expect you to eat that shit for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Let them try that experiment on some fatass from Kentucky who eats McDonalds every day. They probably already have high blood pressure and swollen feet but they wouldn’t fucking fall apart like this douche.

Five Guys isn’t too terrible for your heart – burgers are fresh, cooked on a grill with no oils or anything, and like I said the fries are made in peanut oil, which is much lower in saturated fat and cholesterol than your typical crisco Grandma uses to fry up everything for dinner.

Only thing to eat in my house is carrots and fishsticks. Ew sounds like cafeteria food. at an elementary school. I’ll be downing some Gortons for dinner though. yumyum HOWEVER i do have a quart of Rita’s in the frigidaire. Mmmm mmm ymmm. Seriously, as hot as DC was this weekend you guys need some mothafuckin Ritas. I can’t believe I had to go out to man-ass-ass to get some if i wanted too. Too hot to go that far. Somebody open a Ritas down there and make your million dollas quick. Please, I’ll send you five dolla just to get started.

Yes Sister Toldja, you are the ONLY PERSON ON THE PLANET who dislikes Krispy Kreme. However you did do wrong with the holes. The holes are not whats up, if you want holes you should stick to dunkins.

Ritas is crack. However, being from Philadelphia, I must also say there are several localized mom and pops around they way that are delish. Ritas, being a chain has more visibility, but I was def raised on hood water ice.

There is a new Ritas in College Park, Md. (Of course it opens the year after I graduate. And some others sprinkled about in other parts of MD, too.

Re: McDonald’s Breakfast – this post sums the debate I have with myself every morning, because there’s one of those on the way to work. I often pass, though, because giving in would mean a serious case of itis upon consumption and increased crankiness

oh no I love hood water ice, there’s a place in wilmington near the hospital that serves pink grapefruit flavored ice. and the lemon ice has lemon shavings in it. So good, but your mouth tastes pink after that. In the cheapo plastic cups… yum yum.

You know I found out i can’t eat mickyDs biscuit sandwiches anymore. No matter how hungry I am i take 2 bites and i’m full and and feeling sick and that damn sammich is still there looking at me. I end up littering the high way throwing that shit out the window (no there is no other place to eat mcdonalds except for in a car. taking it home is a waste of energy for that type of nonfood). I can only get through the McMuffins now, tasty as those biscuits are. And there is no hashbrown made I dont like. Except for those thick as chunks of potato which are not hashbrowns. Just to be clear. If the potato is not shredded to within an inch of recognition, and fried to a crispy brown coloration, it is not a hashbrown.

NotBlonde, I don’t think that discredits his point though, if anything it strengthens it IMO. Food isn’t something you should have to “adapt” to. That’s why I try to cut out a lot of processed food and meat. When I first gave up pork for a while and then indulged in a rib, I got sick because my body wasn’t used to digesting it. That doesn’t happen with carrot sticks, LOL.

Trust, that fatass from Kentucky IS falling apart from eating McDonald’s crap, just at a slower pace.

There’s a Five Guys here in Greenville–really, it’s one of this town’s few saving graces (the gay scene here is tragic with an extra helping of pitiful, I don’t know where the black folk who have sense are, and now, it’s just HOT). A perfect junk food Saturday would consist of: A Five Guys burger, a Chik-Fil-A shake (seriously), and a 44 oz. Cherry Limeade–actually, I prefer a Cherry Sprite or a Pepsi. Sonic always puts too much lime in the limeade.

No wonder I dropped 4lbs two weeks after dropping soda; but damn it all, I want a burger NOW.

Irony- we have been talking about food alll day, but all I had to actually eat was an iced coffee, a veggie burger, and a beer, plus aaaalll the water in the world. It was too damn hot to eat any of the things we discussed here today.

Ugh, Five Guys in BK does nothing for me. When I was in college, I went to the one on Georgia Avenue for fries or “The Veggie” (all the fixins, no meat) or the “Grilled Cheese” (an upside down bun with cheese). I hated them for not having a veggie burger! Perhaps since Park Slope is so fake-organic-green-McDouche Baggie, they will have a real vegetarian option. Those fries were the lick when we were broke, one bag could feed half the damn crew!

We NEED a Rita’s here! There is one in Newark, but I want one in Brooklyn, along with a WaWa! OMG, I stalked WaWa in College Park (RIP) after going to one in Philly!

Final fat-assed food note: Wendy’s has Frosty milkshakes. This is not good. I will act like I didn’t find that out and never return to Wendy’s on a post club bender, b/c I won’t be able to say no. They also have breakfast now, and something on the menu was served with hot sauce! I never saw that on a menu board before! I stepped up my pace and kept walking, before my mind started thinking of fries with hot sauce and a shake. Which was not as good as my water and beer dinner! Yummy!

@the doc is in

It discredits his point because he isn’t used to digesting food like that. I had a native american grandmother who barfed up greens for no good reason. We all ate the same greens and she had never had it in her life and it made her sick to her stomach. (I’m actually not sure why she had never eaten greens…it seems like something native americans would eat). I’m not saying that McDonald’s isn’t crappy and barely food, because I commented earlier that when it hits your stomach it feels like lead but that’s because I barely eat it. I bet Kentucky fatty would feel sick eating super-healthy food all of a sudden as well.

It would be like taking someone who has never driven a car before and having them drive in a Nascar race and being surprised when they fail miserably. Of course he was gonna feel like shit and fall apart really fast, he’s not used to it.

We all adapt to our food, whatever it is. How can you describe the varying diets of human beings? The foods we eat haven’t always been here; we’ve adapted to drinking milk, to eating beef from genetically modified cows, and even your carrot sticks are likely genetically modified in some way.

In my opinion, getting used to eating certain food is a natural human process. I hated squash when I was younger and it literally made me feel sick to eat it but now I love it. I guess my point is that while McDonald’s has overly processed food products, the human body can adapt to that kind of food eventually and process it without completely shutting down.

McDonald’s ice coffee is soooo great! How about i took a McD’s ice coffee to a starbucks about 3 weeks ago and sat up in that piece and drank it! i was going there to write and wasn’t about to spend the money that starbucks was charging!

I was a starbucks employee too and i could not for the life of me understand how people were breaking their pockets coming into that damn place like 3 times a day spending like 7 or 8 bucks every visit.

but i have a complete ban on dunkin doughnuts though. every one i’ve ever been to has some foreign employees that i have to give my order to at least 3 times and then they always have attitude when i’m paying, like they doin my ass a favor selling me some shit!

Notblonde – human bodies are NOT “adapting” to eating crap like McDonald’s everyday, that’s why obesity, diabetes, heart disease, etc. are so rampant. I get the gist of what you’re trying to say, but it’s still fact is some things are easier and healthier on the human body because that’s what the human body is designed to digest and they contain the essential nutrients we need for optimum function. Organic fruits and vegetables, etc. fall into that category. (And about cow milk…we’ve only partially adapted to that, think about how many people are lactose intolerant!) All that to say, a person switching from healthy food to CrapDonald’s is going to be a LOT worse off than a person making the switch the other way around, and I think that is the point of the movie.

their menus are awesome..

then the combinations.. cajun, jamaican – although fruit in a burger is plain nuts to me, chicken satay… and they serve alcohol..
i like to order a burger that i cannot possibly fit my mouth around when i am feeling like a good feed… with at least 3 animals in it not including the egg..

See, sometimes I feel like I’m the only person disappointed with McDonald’s sweet tea. In my opinion, they just don’t make it sweet enough like the old heads down in Suffolk VA where my ma’s family is from.

Because of my disappointment with the southern sweet tea, I’ve refused to try McDonald’s other ‘southern’ offerings like the southern chicken biscuit.

My 96 year old grandmother’s cooking skills have set my expectations way too high 😛

The pickles/chicken combo has been perfected by Chik-Fil-A.

But it was originated by Ms. Minneola, the lady who fried the chicken at 6 a.m. before church every Sunday. (I find it ironic that the justification for my church selling fried chicken at 7 am was that service was from 7-12 and so many people are on pills that can’t be taken on an empty stomach. Um, the pills are for hypertension (pressuh) and diabetes (sugah)!!!! Why are you serving fried chicken?!?!)

I think those McGriddles would taste better with Alaga syrup! Nice and thick!

Thw southern chicken sandwich at McDonalds is CLEARLY stolen from Chick-Fil-A, where they serve chicken sandwiches on seedless buttered buns with no sauce and pickles on top.
