McRib ‘Reveal’ Less Scandalous Than Expected

111213mcrib

Whatever your thoughts on industrial meat products, you have to agree that the McRib has been a big, fatty win for McDonald’s. When your product inspires a memorable plot line in a Simpsons episode, you can officially call it a success (and yes, this was well before the show turned into Family Guy 2.0 so it still counts).

Today Gothamist raided Reddit for this picture of a raw, frozen McRib shipment arriving in Canada from…wherever the magical porkers whose ribs look like this live.

Just kidding, everyone knows there are no ribs present in a McRib. But we have to say that this image isn’t as scandalous as we imagined it would be. We don’t think McD’s will have to go on damage control, and we wonder whether they should even issue a response. If they do, here’s our suggestion:

“What the hell did you expect a slab of ground pork parts pressed into the shape of a ribcage to look like?”

On the other hand, if you’ve never actually watched your sausage being made, we’ll just say “ignorance is bliss.”
