McDonald’s Mondays: Nothing Can Kill the Grimace

The Grimace has a long and sordid history that one of these days we’ll address here in a McDonald’s Monday post. But today? Today we’re going to enjoy a little Kevin Smith. The above clip is from the incredibly short-lived Clerks: The Animated Series. If you’re a fan of Smith’s work it’s well worth checking …Read More

McDonald’s Mondays: How much value is there to an Extra Value Meal?

Sometimes it seems like getting a combo in a fast food restaurant is a no brainer. You want a complete meal, so why not just order the #3? Fries, drink and a sandwich, and it shaves a little of the cost off of ordering the pieces individually… doesn’t it? A few weeks ago The Consumerist …Read More

McDonald’s Mondays: BAD sign placement

Let’s get this out of the way right off the bat. This isn’t a post condemning, condoning, or commenting on abortion in any way shape or form. It’s not intended to offend or annoy anyone. It’s merely a commentary on some terrible marketing placement. That being said, who was the genius at the billboard company …Read More

McDonald’s Mondays: McMake it Yourself

Last week we thought it might be fun to see what kind of McDonald’s foods you enjoyed. This week? We’re going to give you the recipes to make them yourself! McMenu: Do-It-Yourself McDonald’s has been floating around the internet for a few years now. I first remember coming across it back in 2005 when I …Read More

McDonald’s Mondays: What’s your favorite item on the menu?

We spend a lot of time during McDonald’s Mondays talking about news stories, videos, and images — but we never talk about you! This week we’d like to change that and ask you one simple question; What is your all time favorite McDonald’s item? If you love quarter pounders, let us know. If you loved …Read More

McDonald’s Mondays: Let’s Play Pretend

Earlier this month, the blog Woody Asks posed an interesting hypothetical: what would you do if McDonald’s changed their value menu to be 100% healthy? No more double cheeseburgers. No more fries. No more small sodas or Junior Chickens. Just healthy foods. McDonald’s has already been adding healthy choices to their menu for a few …Read More

McDonald’s Mondays: McSnowmobiling!

The fine folks over at RobotNine have posted up an nifty collection of photos of strange McDonald’s locations from around the world. The real highlight? This McDonald’s in Piteå, Sweden opened the world’s first (and to the best of my knowledge, only) snowmobile-specific drive thru. While you might not think there’d be much call for …Read More

McDonald’s Mondays: When they pay more, YOU pay more

On March 31st, Ontario raised their minimum wage from $8.75 to $9.50. On April 1st, Ontario McDonald’s raised the price on all of their sandwiches by 20 cents. Other menu items increased in price as well. Is this indicative of a larger problem in our economy? We raise the minimum wage so that those earning …Read More

McDonald’s Mondays: Mcgoodbye

The McDonald’s near my house closed at the end of March. Whether it’s a sign of the economic times or just a final response to the endless complaints about rude service and filthy conditions isn’t for me to say. All I know is that this location has weaved a thread throughout my life; When I …Read More

McDonald’s Mondays: McGangBang!

Right off the bat let me apologize for the title of this post. It’s not meant in the nasty way you might be thinking. You see, the McGangBang is a real thing, and it seems to be sweeping the nation. The concept is simple — take a double cheeseburger and stick a McChicken right in …Read More

McDonald’s Mondays: America’s Healthiest Fast Food?

Not quite, but in a recent study conducted by ABC News, McDonald’s was picked the 8th healthiest fast food restaurant in America. It also has the distinction of being the only major fast food chain on the list. Companies like Burger King, Wendy’s and KFC just didn’t make the cut. So what makes McDonald’s so …Read More

McDonald’s Mondays: It’s just the risk you run with the Angus Burger…

Switching around the letters on signage always gives me a chuckle, and let’s face facts: when you name something the Angus Burger you’re just asking for trouble. It’s why Pac-Man’s name was changed from Puck-Man — vandals are a creative breed. Besides, it reminds me of the opening to every Fawlty Towers, and Fawlty Towers …Read More

McDonald’s Mondays: Flooded

Flooded McDonald’s from Superflex on Vimeo. The internet is a strange place.. But an art collective? They can just be downright confusing. Dutch Art Collective “SuperFlex” has produced a video art piece known as Flooded McDonald’s. Supposedly it’s a statement on consumerism and responsibility, but I’ll be damned if I could tell you why that …Read More

McDonald’s Mondays: How bogus coupons hurt business

Came across this one on Snopes earlier in the week and was instantly reminded of one of our more popular threads in recent months, the one about the Maple Leaf Foods coupon being invalid. On the one hand there were dozens of people claiming that stores were still taking the coupon and encouraging others to …Read More

McDonald’s Mondays: One Small Step for Man…

God bless Google Images. I can’t imagine what my day would be like without coming across something utterly bizarre and hysterically funny in my travels. It appears as though this image was originally tied to an article (now defunct) about the possibility of there one day being a McDonald’s on the moon. That’s arguably the …Read More
