cur-mud-geon: anyone who hates hypocrisy and pretense and has the temerity to say so; anyone with the habit of pointing out unpleasant facts in an engaging and humorous manner
All this talk about health care must've made me hungry.
I have been a big fan of cheeseburgers even though I try to limit the urge to no more than one a week. I saw the kick-off ad campaign for McDonald's new Angus burgers and wondered how they would stack up against some of my favorites. I am particularly attracted to bacon cheeseburgers.
The opportunity presented itself one evening last week when time permitted nothing other than a quick supper.
The Angus Bacon Cheeseburger was very good. It was served in a container that brought it to me in perfect condition. The combination of red onion slices, crisp, but not too crisp, bacon, pickles, mustard and whatever else was included was perfect. I believe the price for the burger was $3.89 and that seemed quite reasonable. Maybe I hit it just right, but this burger appeared to have been cooked and assembled just for me. I drove through the local drive-thru lane at about 5:40PM, so they were probably in full swing for that evening's customers.
I have had my complaints about the local Mickey Dees, but they had it all together that evening and with that Angus burger!
Oh, since the FTC has just ruled that bloggers must admit any monetary relationships that might be involved in recommendations made, I can tell you that the monetary aspect is all one-sided with me and McDonald's. I pay and they provide me the food.
