McThoughts

.
"Try Mighty Wings Now!" The ads sing.
Three dollars (plus tax) for three wings!
A whole dollar each
They would happily leech
For these little expensive McThings

After having some cookies and teas
The customer sat at McD's
She said "I just wish
The Filet O Fish
Would come with a full slice of cheese."

What a Rip Off!!!
They look tasty, but NOT a buck a wing tasty. Very disappointing.
Loved your overpriced 55 Janna.
Thanks for playing, you are like buying a small Happy Meal, and getting SUPERSIZED for free!!!
Have a Kick Ass Week-End

PS...
LOVED your Haiku Comment...:-)

And....YAHTZEE!!!!!!!

Janna said...

G-Man: I agree that they seem to be quite a rip-off, despite sounding tasty. If only they were pterodactyl size wings, they might be worth it. ;)

By the time you're done shelling out for McD's you could go to a real restaurant and head home with a doggie bag.

Mary said...

$1 a wing DOES sound a bit pricey!! Your last two lines about the fillet of fish & cheese made me smile. IF I am at McDonalds, I still prefer the old-fashioned burger.

Wow, no wonder their arches are made of gold.

Janna, I loved your haiku comment at the G-Man's. :)

And where do they get off charging that much for something that may (or may not) be actual chicken?

Always look forward to your 55's. Have a beautiful weekend.

Nickel and diming ya to death--it's the American Way. Have you heard we just signed a new trade agreement with China to ship American chickens 7,000 miles to be processed in Chinese plants without inspectors, then shipped back home without any labeling? Classic mystery meat just got more mysterious. ;_) Gotta love those McNuggets.

Laughing, maybe better yet that it was real cheese.

Mama Zen said...

You'd have to pay me a dollar a wing to eat 'em!

Heaven said...

So expensive for those stuff ~ You can get more if you buy it in grocery store ~ Happy Friday ~

McWings...they mean fly wings of course, processes and held together with...well, that's the real mystery.

Susie Clevenger said...

I refuse to eat chicken, but what a rip off for those who do. Love the humor!!

Janna said...

Alice: "Real Restaurant"... LOL!

Mary: A fish sandwich sounds pretty good right now... or a burger... (I didn't have dinner and it's already after 11:00 at night.)

Vanessa: Excellent point!

TALON: I think it is actual chicken; it's just pieces and parts we'd rather not be reminded about.

hedgewitch: Interesting... (!!)

Nara: I'd settle for a whole slice of the processed stuff!

MamaZen: Aw, really? I think they're probably delicious; I just believe they're way too expensive.

Heaven: But in the grocery store it doesn't come with that special "McDonald" ambiance!

OtherMary: On the bright side, they come with dipping sauce!

Susie: I agree it's a rip off... yet it sounds tasty. Breaded and deep fried; what could possibly go wrong? Other than that whole cholesterol-calorie-mysterymeat-zombiechickentakingovertheworld thing.
