A good hambergurger..... or sex?


So this guy down the road here in Beautiful Downtown Wisconsin is on his way to eating 25,000 Big Macs.  Yupperz.... it's a real milestone!  At about 3pm may 17 inside the McDonald's at 699 S Military in Fond du Lac, if anyone wants to watch.  Or, if you just want to laugh... really ... read the story on the link.... I can't make this up...

"In his basement are relics from the original McDonald’s on Military. On a section of the wall is the seat he sat in during the film “Super Size Me,” and the booth seat where he and his father enjoyed his 10,000th Big Mac."

Said he wanted to be surrounded by family and friends when he scarves down the 25,000th.  Ssheesh!!

Now, don't get me wrong... I like hamburgers.  I used to go out of my way to hit a good burger joint.  Used to be one a ways up north that made them with fresh ground beef... Old Slim ground it himself.. also had great vegetable soup.... from veggies he grew himself.  Plain burgers with a good homemade bun... a cup of coffee...  when you are on the road a lot, there is nothing better.  But a Big Mac is really not a Burger....more like... gees, I dunno!

There's another place, I was told about, down in AZ and Dallas called the Heart Attack Grill  that thinks they are really special for making some really gross stuff.


but those are not burgers..... more like Franken-food.
.... but the waitresses look good.... maybe just skip the burger....  add a little mustard, maybe a pickle ...hold the fries.

So what is up... with America.... we elect fake politicians... eat fake food... watch fake TV....FAKE fake fake.... gees....even most of the sex is fake.  Now, getting back to the guy in Fond du Lac.... if he had been celebrating the 25,000th time he got laid.... now that WOULD be something.  Gees, if I WAS CELEBRATING THAT.... why I just might want to be surrounded by family and friends, too!!

.... but noperz,,,,, unfortunately that is not happening... or at least not today.  Think I will just walk down to the local butcher shop (still have one!) buy a bit of ground beef... truck to the local bakery (still have one!) and get me some buns and make an honest burger.
... make me some coffee... put a little Holst on the stereo.  NOW....if I could just find a honest politician....



............and.... iffen I was Charlie Sheen... I could have my burger & a waitress , too... or three, or four. ... but that wouldn't be honest.

I don't even remember the last time I ate at McDonalds. Give me fresh food any day.

What astounds me is that this man will have consumed 25,000 Big Macs without his body suffering overt consequences. How on earth can his body cope with all the fat, cholesterol, and preservatives?

Eating 25,000 Big Macs indicates to me someone who's stuck in a rut, no curiosity and little or no variety in his diet. Because even if he's eating two at a time, he hasn't had enough time and appetite to try new and different things and enjoy variety. I look on his habit as choosing the "safety" of familiar mediocrity.


Ahab, not only fat, cholesterol and preservatives, but who knows what in the way of hormones and antibiotics.

while i have eaten at mickey d's in the past (haven't in many years), i have never had a big mac. they never looked very appealing, and with teenage boys cooking in the back, who knows what that special sauce really is.

Truthfully, I miss the little roadside burger stands that looked like some trash pile but made the best burgers and fries in the world. Had a few back in my hometown but almost as soon as McDonald's opened up in 1982 they were driven out of business. Of course, back before McDonald's spread across the country like some virus a hamburger was a treat, not a mainstay of a person's diet.

I hate McDonald's almost as much as Walmart but because of how life is structured these days I find I cannot avoid the places.

Libs...//sex, not burgers, any day of the week I think//
What? think? not sure about wednesdays, huh?

Sherry... only in an emergency... the girls, not the burgers.

Ahab &SW...when I saw that on the News I about gagged. If you read the whole article... the guy did not seem all that bright... and I am guessing that is the average customer at McD's, not very bright or creative.

Nonnie... just never go again. All fast food sucks (though I admit to going to a Hardee's last winter after getting daughter's car out of snow bank during storm. No one else was open and the breakfast bisquit wasn't all that bad. Emergencies only)

Dear Bum... absolutely do I miss those places!

...but further...not only fast food but the 'big box' places like Denny's Perkins, Applebees, TGIF... none of them are really all that good. Further... the net profit goes to a corporation that may be anywhere... but certainly is not local.
Last night I went to a local restaurant with a couple of friends, a bit upscale for me, but it is locally owned, the Chef was just name Wisco chef of the year. We ordered a cheese plate, six different kinds, smoked goat cheese, Gorgonzola, Gouda... served with nuts, dried fruit, and a homemade cracker/flatbread...$11 and well worth it. Lee and I split a appetizer order of fish tacos..$3.50. Plenty... the beer was a Wisco brewery...

...award winning beer... only available in Wisco... had a nice clean pale ale that was excellent with the cheese.

Two beers each, happy hour pricing... the three of us ran up a bill of about $35 ... a view of the river and great jazz. &&&& all profit stayed right here at home!!!

.... no way am I going to a franchise restaurant... again... ever.... ok. rant over.
