I like McDonalds

Here's a neat page about the oldest-surviving McDonalds (the third one built), with pictures. Growing up, we had one very much like this in our town. Not real close, it was a treat for us every time we went.

Thanks to Transterrestrial Musings for the pointer.

Burger King sucks.

I am a lifelong Burger Thing hater. And usually surrounded by fans of the abominable franchise. Thank God Mrs. Buckethead is not a BK fan.

btw, thanks for the compliment on the space history post.

Always been a McD's person myself, too. BK's fries are gross. Always cold. Even when they're not cold, they're gross. IMHO. Aren't you glad I stopped by to participate in the discussion? Heh.

On two different occasions, in two different states, we were driving on vacation and the only thing on the interstate was BK. I ordered a burger and TWICE we got on the road and discovered there was no top bun. That's not incompetence, that's malice.

Plus their commercials insult my intelligence.

Oh, and Topdawg, I'm enjoying the hell out of TND! You keep me smiling. :)

At least in Australia, Burger King/Hungry Jack burgers are far superior to the pallid offerings purveyed by Mackers.

Of course the local greasy-spoon burgers are better still, with pineapple, beetroot, lettuce, egg, bacon, onions, tomato, and ketchup. Oh yes, and something vaguely meat-like in there too. (We find the idea of Pickles or Mayo on burgers ... disturbing.)

Mackers, OTOH, does have Party Rooms and Ice Cream cakes, so for those of us who have toddlers underfoot, they have certain advantages on birthdays.

My 2-year old son Andrew summed it up yesterday:
"Mackies! Chippies!"
"OK Andrew, you've been a Good Boy, what do you want?"
"Burger King Chidren Mee!"
(No, I'm not joking, and it's vaguely worrying...)
The nearest Mackers is about 2 km away, the nearest Hungry Jack's is at the other end of the city. *SIGH*

I must confess to a loathe of McDonald's, though I don't eat so much fast food. I like BK, and even Wendy's, but I do have a thing for Popeye's, when I'm in the mood for it.

Although I was eating Jack in the Box out west and that works for me.
