Student Designs Biodegradable Packaging for McDonald’s…and the McGangBang?

Neat new designs for the ‘restaurant’ that’s going to get us through this economic crisis.  I really hope they start using SOMETHING biodegradable because it seems like the rest of their practices are pretty harmful.

Eat Like the Pres

 

 

at least in Hawaii…if you have a job and are looking for a vacation, it’s actually pretty cheap to go to Hawaii…at least as far as vacations to Hawaii go.  I was lucky enough to visit Oahu and Maui in the fall…when I was living high off the hog with champagne wishes and caviar dreams…aka when I had a job and wasn’t on the dole.  It just so happens that I’ve eaten at three of these places!  Barack and I just have SO much in COMMON!  We ate at Indigo our first night in Oahu and it was fabulous.  I highly recommend it…and the rest of the list ain’t so bad neither.  

Eat at Obama’s favorite Hawaii restaurants – USATODAY.com.

I can’t wait to see what DC spots he takes to.  I know he’s a fan of Mexican so my Washingtonian friends and I are taking bets as to which restaurante mexicana he takes a shine to.  Guapos is a personal favorite of mine but other bets are on Cactus Cantina (which is located a few blocks from Sidwell where the girls go to school) and  Rosa Mexicana.  Any tipsters out there want to weigh in?  Shed a little light?

Loco Moco...only for the brave but totes a cheap eat!Loco Moco from Aloha Plate in Lahaina in Maui.  Rice, egg, hamburger patty, and loads of gravy.  Perhaps this is the Hawaiian great-grandfather of the McGangBang.

How could I forget to mention the McWhitey?

In all my excitement to get the McGangBang posted, I forgot to mention the McWhitey…particularly popular this time of year when the Filet o’fish dominates the menu for all the Lenten Catholics.  The McWhitey, as first introduced by this video on Jan. 4th, 2009 is a McChicken between two Filet O’Fish patties.  This I’m not tempted to eat at all.  I would never trust McDonalds with fish…I know it’s crap fish…but that just sounds like you’re begging for a serious case of food poisoning.

Depression Eats: The McGangbang

So wrong it just might be right…actually, there’s no way in hell this is right.  It’s just so clearly an abomination.  The short story is that it is an unholy creation that can be assembled with two items from the McDonalds Dollar Menu.  You take a McChicken sandwich and put inside two double cheeseburgers.  The long story is lovingly chronicled by the Eat Me Daily blog and is totally worth a read…as are a few of the youtube clips of people ordering them.  This is probably the worst thing that’s ever happened to America…but it’s also well over 1000 calories for $2.16.  It makes me want to buy McDonalds stock and then go set one on fire…all at the same time.  Conflicted doesn’t quite cover it.  Is it wrong that I now have an INTENSE craving for McDonalds…but also feel a little sick to my stomach even thinking about it?
