When they tore down the Mickey D’s in North Huntingdon a while back, I first internally snarked because there in front of a big giant pile of rubble, for weeks and weeks, was a big painted sign at the entryway saying, “Sorry. We’re closed.”
Thank God that sign was there, otherwise people would have climbed up the rubble pile, dug down to the front doors, and pushed on the pull door to try to get in and get their Big Macs.
Now that the new Mickey D’s is rebuilt and open, well holy heck it is MASSIVE. Seriously. You have to go see it. This is because it is a museum to the Big Mac and its inventor, a Burgher dude who is still alive and working and who doesn’t make a single cent off of the Big Mac.
My points I wanted to make are this:
1. This has become national news.
2. Does anyone else remember back in the 80’s it probably was when McDonald’s had that promotion in which if you ordered a Big Mac or something, you got a record that you could play on your record player (!!) and it would play the “two all beef patties” song? Anyone? Anyone? Zober?
Also? Do any of you girls remember the hand slapping game in which we said, “Big Mac, Fillet o’ Fish, Quarter Pounder, french fries, icy Coke, thick shake, sundaes, and apple pie!”
(P.S. I am well aware from my Facebook and from emails that there are lots of you readers that weren’t even conceived yet in the 80’s and to you I’d like to say, “Get off my lawn!”)
