Buy four and get a free Tyne Daly figurine.

Why is that repulsive little creature on the paper wrapping? I don’t want it near my food!

BREAKING NEWS - McDonalds loses money on $5 meal deals and had to stop selling them

So they're trying to copy Wendy's with their $5 "Biggie Bag" promotion, which has been a huge hit.

Those items used to be on the dollar menu.

They can afford this because they overcharged for pink slime for 4 years.

it's a pickle with a dab of ketchup. $5 please.

It'll be two slices of thin bread with a piece of American cheese in between.

I love McDonald’s but it is so fucking expensive lately! It is now a guilty pleasure for financial reasons.

I was on a road trip recently and had to stop at McDonalds - the meal was just over $17!

May as well eat at a sit down restaurant. Or just make your own food.

You can buy a New York strip steak and a bag salad for the less than the price of a McDonald's lunch.

McDonalds only does well when it has a CEO who worked his way up through the company from the bottom. About half of their CEOs have been lifers like this, and the other half have been empty suits who came to the company in their fifties via the board of directors or a headhunter.

Looking over the company's record, there's a measurable boost in performance correlating with the tenure of the "lifer" CEOs (such as Fred Turner in the 70s and 80s, Mike Turner in the 90s, and the short-lived Charlie Bell in 2004). Anytime they have to bring in a professional executive type from outside the company, he shakes the wrong monkey trees and the chain goes to shit. It's a fragile business, and one bad idea can sink them for two quarters.

The current CEO comes from Proctor and Gamble - he's not even a restaurant guy - and although he famously runs 50 miles each week, he doesn't seem to have a firm grasp on the realities of fast food as a business, as an employer, and as one choice among many for a cash-strapped but hungry public.

No, they’ll just pack more filler into the hamburger and less fries in the box. And then they’ll badger you to upsize. For $2 more, you can get large fries or medium drink!

They have a buy one, get a second one for $1 deal with a couple of their burgers. Sometimes I get two Bacon McDoubles for around $5.30 if I don't have time for a real meal.

R18 McDonald's and "real meal" don't go together. Nothing they serve can be defined as a 'real meal'.

R11- There’s no pleasure derived from eating that fast food SLOP.

I hope it at least comes with a medium Sprite!
