Canadian values

I watched That '70s Show yesterday and it turned out the closed-captioning was sponsored by McDonald's Double Cheeseburger which is part of their new Value Menu, apparently. That right there is news to me (though I think Porchboy said something about it a few weeks ago).

Some people say you can't learn anything from television. Those people are wrong. Still, the box failed to mention these new Values mean the end of McDeals, i.e. the only reason I ever set foot in the place. That would be on Fridays for the McFish deal, mostly.*

More than I bargained for Update: Andrew Teman discovers hot man on sandwich action. Also, this is what a McDonald's Double Cheeseburger supposedly looks like in New Zealand. I call shenanigans. Has anyone seen a Kiwi double cheeseburger in the flesh (burger may not contain actual flesh)?

Freaky. Maybe it's the weird upside-down gravity you people have at that end of the planet. Ours look more like this.

*Mostly.

I have sworn off all but their breakfast items. For some reason the Bacon & Egg McMuffin + hash brown is still quite palatable to me.

I love the McGriddle but can only digest about one per year. Though now I think about it the stars are almost aligned for my next one. Mmmm. Maple.

I'm anxiously awaiting my first visit of the summer to a Russian McDonald's. (Owned, incidentally, by the Canadian branch of Mickey D's.)
