McRib

The answer to one of the clues in the Sunday New York Times Crossword Puzzle was

McRib

I wonder if this was a tribute to Esby.

  3. Okay, to add to my horror I found out that the new Hot 'N Spicy McChicken Sandwich is ALSO for a limited time!

    2. I tried to order the Hot N Spicy Sandwich "Meal" but I asked for a Regular McChicken and a Hot N Spicy. - 2 wanted two sandwiches. But there was a language barrier and I didn't realize that you got two sandwiches with their meal deal as I had never bought one before, just a single sandwich in the past sans fries and drink. SO .. I got 3 sandwiches! 2 HnS and 1 regular unleaded. HopefuLLy both are unleaded but you never know what constitutes Hot N Spicy - perhaps I should dig out my Geiger counter from the hallway closet. At least I got to spend several minutes chatting with a couple from Wichita and they were RVing for the first time in my part of the non-woods. The interesting thing about the conversation is that it began with the man (sitting in a booth at McDonalds) asking me this question:

      "Are we in Borger Texas right now?"

      - honest, I had to contain myself from laughing out loud, thinking, in nearly 33 years no human being - sober or non-sober - had ever asked me that question.
