When Keeping It Ironic Goes Wrong: the McNuggetini

February 17, 2009 Leave a comment

There are few better things to eat than a Chick-Fil-A chicken sandwich and waffle fries.  I’ll dip my Wendy’s fries in a frosty (I mean, probably just the tip, but enough to get the taste).  I do like alcohol.  However, of the many imaginary lines in the sand I draw, one of them happens to fall at McDonalds.  I just won’t eat there.  The act of mixing McDonald’s milkshakes, barbeque sauce, and McNuggets into the McNuggetini is so far out of bounds, even I am shock and awe’d that someone would do this.  I do have to admit that they score points for execution and bravado.

Whether the McNuggetini was a fit of poorly conceived irony, just poorly conceived, or an act of latent genius, history (or the internet) will have to be the judge.  For an appropriate way to consume meat-flavored alcohol, please refer to my previous post on Bacon-Flavored Bourbon.

I’m Going to Go All Rodney Dangerfield On This Piece

This article is enough to get me thinking about going back to school to be an English major.  The only equivalent that I can think of is my friends who managed to convince their professors that Phish tour was a sociological experience worth documenting.  I’ll take the 1 for $3, 2 for $5 rib anyday over a vegan burrito, bro.
