Okay, I had something totally different planned for today but when I went out to do the post, I discovered that my battery was dead on the MBIP Mobile and that caused an afternoon of pain for me. I had to call a towing service to get my car jumped, then I had to go and get a battery installed and without going into too many details, my afternoon sucked big monkey lungs on toast. And then I had to go to work, which is never a highlight of my day. Suffice it to say I’m in kind of a rotten mood, but I still need to do my MBIP thing, so I thought I’d continue my Eating Main Street Tour and the next stop is a place I’m really not looking forward to going to going to, it’s McDonald’s and I hate McDonald’s, but it’s on Main Street, so I have to make a stop there. In a way it’s kind of fitting, a sucktacular end to a most sucktacular day. Okay, let’s go and get this over with!
Here we go up Main Street and I have to confess I’m really not in much of a mood to do this. I’m still pissed off that today was totally wasted on a dead battery and it’s freezing as fuck outside and the heater in my car hasn’t kicked in yet. Have I mentioned lately that I fucking hate winter? And right now I pretty much just hate life in general. Ugh.
Oh this is perfect! I just drove up to the McDonald’s on Main Street and it’s fucking closed. Fuck!
Here’s a shot of the inside, it’s hard to tell but people are working in there. It looks like they’re remodeling the place. Motherfucker, some days you just can’t win!
I’ve decided to go to the McDonald’s up on University, they all have the same food, so what’s the fucking difference? Besides I just want to get this over with. Some days are just doomed and that’s the way this day and night have gone. At this point I just want to get this shit over with and drink about twenty beers pass out and either die in my sleep or start another day that’s hopefully better than this one.
Okay, here we are, let’s go through the drive-thru lane, I’m not getting out of my car in this freezing weather. As I scan the menu I realize one thing, I’ve never had a Big Mac in my life, so I ordered the Big Mac Meal with a chocolate shake and was told to drive up to window one.
And here’s a shot of the gentleman behind window one passing off my food and me putting it over on the passenger side of the MBIP Mobile. And as you can see the MBIP camera is acting up and fuzzing out on me again. Hate the MBIP camera...HATE HATE HATE IT!
Here we go up University towards the MBIP World Headquarters where we’re going to eat this Mickey D. meal. I have to tell you, the smell from the bag really stinks. It smells like greasy meat gone horribly wrong and I’m not too excited to be sampling this food.
Okay, here we are at MBIP World Headquarters...
This is the food sampling area of the MBIP compound.
And here’s the food to be sampled.
I tried the fries first and they were overloaded with salt and kind of cold. Not a good start, but at least we’re getting close to putting an end to this thing.
Now it’s time to try the Big Mac. The meat is almost grey and there’s three buns on this thing. It’s like a mutant ass or something. And that sauce and pickle looks really disgusting! It looks like a leper jerked off all over the bun and then coughed up half a green lung on top of it.
Here we go...
Okay, I’ve had two bites of this thing and it literally has no taste. It’s like eating chewy cardboard. Well, at least we got the McDonald’s on Main Street out of the way and this night thankfully is coming to a close.
Time to throw this shit in the garbage.
Oh and the chocolate milkshake was runny and sugary sweet and pretty horrible.
As long as we’re in the MBIP World Headquarters taste-testing section I thought I’d show you all the utensils I’ve acquired through the years. I have one plate I took from my parents when I moved out on my own in 1979, the two spoons and steak knife to the right are also from my parents silverware collection. I bought that spatula in New York in the mid ‘90’s when I wanted to make scrambled eggs and I don’t know where those other two steak knives came from. The fork on the left was a Christmas present from Phil and Karen Luciano who got it for me after they read about how I had lost my fork over a year ago and had to resort to using my spoons to eat with. That was nice of them and I think of them every day when I eat my lunch with it!
This is my bowl which matches the plate I took from my parents when I first moved out on my own. I bought that pizza cutter at Shop & Save a couple of years ago. Okay, that’s all I’ve got, this post sucked about as bad as my day and night did, but what are you going to do? Hopefully tomorrow will be better, we’ll see you all then! I’m going to go drink a bunch now and continue to hate life in general!
