It was damned cool though.
Actually quite believable (to a certain extent at least).

Well done for the quick changing of it aswell, efficiently done.

McGriddles are just like McMuffins, but I believe they're fried, bread, meat, egg and all. X_x

Yeah, I read you, man. As it happens, I'm not a uthor of these great thing, merely a intense fan. That includes fanfiction so if you haven't left in disgust by now, http://www.outpost-daria.com/ep501.html happens to display a actual episode from a then-popular show detailing this kinda nonsense. Further, this was amplified in Choice of a Skewed Generation , which was insdpired by a real-life sell-out about as bad as your own example, Tom. I give there, that the world may know, however sweet it makes itself seem, until this ends, it will continue to *SUCK*. The pic is, by the way, of me so hitmen and groupies may find me. I work Fast Food. I wouldn't mind either.

Happy April Fools! :)

IGN.com. They actually rebranded their entire site to reflect the golden arches, with pictures of McGriddles floating around in every corner. It was the most horrifying thing you could ever witness

Mc Griddles use modified pancakes w/syrup instead of a muffin. They think its "strange" and "risky" to do this, so they refuse to call them pancakes and all their adds are devoted to promoting the strangeness of "Mc Griddles". On a related note, I downloaded flash. It took up about a quarter of my laptops memory. If you piss me off I already have a couple shitty animations I can release.
