    I actually know nothing about this sandwich except the fact it's "back" and apparently that is a very big deal to some (very sad) people. Also, it is meat sculpted in the shape of a rack of ribs so it can't be that bad, right?

    When I was in Italy I saw the McPink, but it was "di vaccazione", as plasterd on the menu, unfortunately.

    I will try this McRib, however the idea of the McGriddle still makes me nauseous.

    I wonder how many people would actually visit the McRib site? I guess McMarketing has enough cash to spend anyway.

    the sandwich looks nasty, but the "Bonless Pig Farmers Association of America" t-shirt they are hawking made me chuckle.

    How do you think McGod made McEve?

    McAdam wants his McRib back... And one can say that the McSearch for the special McSomeone in all our lives is just the innate McDesire to reunite McMankind with its missing McRib.

    Thats why McGays are unnatural and unholy according to the McPope!

    Not that there's anything McWrong with that...

    Viva McRevolution!

    I remember faux McRib sandwiches in elementary school lunch that were exactly like the original. What a delicious and disgusting sandwich.

    In high school, whenever we went into a McDonald's, it was a rule to precede every noun spoken with the prefix "Mc".

    I think the first death of the McRib was when one arrived as a McMouse. Of course one couldn't tell that from the taste; he was tipped off by the tail.

    I'm only 24 I feel that people not knowing what it is really aged me.

    I've never had it, but I remember the commercials. I'm looking forward to giving it a McTry.

    mcrib per se is not a tasty treat that you will fall in love with.

    but if you had it in the 80s and grew up on it, even with its metamorphosed , more manufactured taste (it used to taste more authentic 20 years ago) , those who eat it today still appreciate it.

    I used to be scared of ribs as a kid, I will see my tasting of the McCrib as a McLandmark in my life.
