1974 McDonald's T-shirt (well, at least the ebay listing says it's '74):

I've never had a Big Mac. Not once. Ever. I used to get the quarter pounder with cheese, but I don't do McDonald's anymore. That stuff gives me heartburn. Plus, when I think of "special sauce" it really makes me lose my appetite....

I love quarter pounders but they must have changed something. I never buy them anymore because they taste different.

I can't believe you've NEVER had a big mac. at least once?!?!

joe said...

Nope, not once. I just can't get past that whole "special sauce" thing.

I can still recite this backwards. It's my mutant superpower!

During this promotion they used to give you a free sandwich or something if you could recite it in under 10 seconds or something. Anyway... I remember learning it well enough that when my Grandma took me into Mcdonalds the manager was so impressed he gave me one of those kooky Hamburgler dolls. i still have it like it was some treasured prize or something...ha-ha

joe said...

Kim: Is there anything you can't do???

Mike: I had one of those too. Unfortunately it met an untimely demise when it fell in the toilet.

joe said...

And Mike, remember when McDonald's was starting their breakfast menu, and they'd give away a couple of paper mate pens in your foodbag. Once they even gave a couple of disposable razors... how bizarre was that?

I used to really like their McDLT sandwich back in high school.

It was discontinued of course. *sighs*

We all make jokes about the "special sauce" when I was a kid.

mary said...

As a former McDonalds employee, I can fill you in s a little secret: the sauce is Russian dressing in a caulking gun!

joe said...

Hairball: Never had one either. I'd forgotten about those.

Keith: Does that sound nasty or what.

Mary: Still, I think I'll pass..

I wish they had Chicken McNuggets when we were kids...

Sunshinemeg said...

Just stumbled across your blog and love it. This post cracked me up. Going to follow you along! Happy week to you!

joe said...

Jim: Me too. I always loved chicken.

Meg: Hey thanks, welcome aboard (c:

Kimberly said...

Never ever had a Big Mac? I find that so hard to believe!

joe said...

Yup, it's true.
My, you're all taking this rather hard...

I became a vegetarian at 10, so Mickey D's was out after that.
I do remember that we had the Chicken McNuggets when they first came out in March of 1981 (Damned Hyperthymestic Syndrome- I can't forget anything!)
They were GROSS. I just remember biting into a HUGE piece of gristle.
I think that day was the beginning of vegetarianism for me.

joe said...

Yuck gristle... that's nasty. My cousin had a filet-o-fish once and there was a bone in it.

Lynda said...

You could always ask them to hold the special sauce, but really, you aren't missing much by never having a Big Mac. :)

joe said...

Yeah that's what I thought ;>)

Retro Hound said...

I had this t-shirt.

joe said...

I vaguely remember these. Also the t-shirts from McD's that said "Go fry a kite"... was that stupid or what?
