Happy Birthday Horribly Fatening Sandwich!

Let's all give a shout out to the Big Mac, who is celebrating its 40th birthday today. Congratulations Big Mac, my first memory of you is eating lunch at a friend's house and that friend devouring two of you. You were utterly disgusting then, and you haven't changed a bit.

Forty years after McDonald's franchisee Jim Delligatti in Uniontown, Pennsylvania decided that one greasy burger wasn't enough; the Big Mac can be found around the world for as little as $1.45 in China (probably with some sort of lead based paint, or other lead based product, or hell, just a slice of lead) and as much as $7.61 in Iceland.

So how did I celebrate this wonderful birthday? I had real hamburgers at Matchbox in Chinatown.

Nuts to you McDonald's, I'm sticking with Matchbox.
