I love McDonalds. I try not to indulge in eating there as often as I used to. I still love it.

But their menu has grown significantly over the years, and I, like many, have thoughts.

There are so many ideas they could implement to shake things up.

Now I have discovered, we all have ideas.

Hopefully Ronald is listening.


RedditorAstroAwesome12345wanted to discuss what is missing from one of the world's greatest menus.

They asked:

"You are the CEO of McDonalds. What outrageous food item do you place on the menu?"

Bring back the ten cent hamburger Tuesday. That was one of my favorite specials ever.

Fried...

"I put the apple pies back into the fryer." ~ LockeWithMe

Hey Dog

"The McDog. A McDonald's hotdog. Only available for 1 hour, on February 29th." ~ TGOTR

"Burger King has a hot dog... They once seriously f**ked up my order and gave me one instead of whatever the hell I actually ordered. I live in Chicago... if I wanted a freaking hot dog, I would have gone across the street to Portillos. The freaking thing was even drowning in ketchup. What the hell." ~ absentmindedjwc

Bag It

"Not completely outrageous, but a big bag full of fresh fries for $10. Include a bowl separated into 4 sections for sauces." ~ baconpoutine89

"In the early 90s (maybe late 80s) when McDonalds still did the 'super size' sizes, you could order a cup of fries and it’d be a supersize cup full of fries. It was great." ~ AshlarKorith

Spice it Up

"Mcdouble Quesadilla." ~ BuckeyeBikeNHike

"I used to literally make these when I worked there. A couple of breakfast burrito tortillas, some shredded cheese from the salad mix, and a few pickle slices to taste; throw on the 10:1 side of the grill for about 30 seconds with the clam down." ~ Karunamon_LoL

"When I worked the overnight shift there a very long time ago, we actually made these all the time. They were honestly good af. If they offered it with the quarter pounder meat, I'd order one." ~ mtrkar

Cheers...

"McTini." ~ WoolaTheCalot

"Taco Bell cantina is a thing. McDonalds dive Bar sounds legit." ~ Worthyness

A McDonald's bar. What's the happy hour? I'll think about it.

"A tomato. That's it. Just a whole tomato." ~ WildForestBlood

McMystery...

"The Mc pizza." ~ Whys-tdk122

"Have you heard the investigative journalism program (or ijp) called Whatever Happened to Pizza At McDonalds where Brian Thompson asks the question 'Whatever happened to the pizza at McDonald’s?'” ~ Z_Murray33

"Yes it is a very good ijp indeed. It seems to still have a limited popularity despite Mr. Thompson's attempts to educate the public. Sadly, if you look in the comments above you will it incorrectly referred to as 'Mcpizza' In addition, another individual is claiming that the novelty McDonald's in Orlando, Fl serves pizza, when we of course know that it is not original recipe and should be considered noncanon." ~ LobotsBalls

McMystery

"Dude what were those things called from like 10 years ago? The snack things that were like… crispy chicken in a wrap with honey mustard, and different variations of that kind of thing. I would absolutely bring THAT back. Were they called snack wraps?" ~ iakonu_hale

"This is the only answer I wanted! I scream every day for snack wraps, grilled or fried. I lived by those things." ~ SpecificAmy

Come on Ron...

"I think about THE BREAKFAST BAGEL a lot. I don't buy their bull about a covid-impacted reduced menu. Sure for the first few months, I got it, but this? This is bullcrap. THE BREAKFAST BAGEL is the only BREAKFAST item I like. It might actually be my favorite thing from McDonalds full stop. It's not right that I've not tasted the sweet caress of that greasy little witch for almost 2 years. Pull your freaking crap together, Ronald." ~ RockMeDoctorZaius

Be Big

"Big Mac Fries. Fries loaded with everything you put on a Big Mac." ~ phattoes

Now I could get onboard with those fries and the bagel. Yum.

Many people lie or exaggerate about seemingly little things. For example, I've wondered if many are lying or at the very least stretching the truth about the number of partners they've had.

One of those strange things where half of the people are lying and making the number higher, and the other half are lying and making it lower.

It's funny, isn't it? But you do you! What do we know?

People shared some of their thoughts with us after Redditor SleepingOmibozu asked the online community,

"What's something you're 100% sure most people are lying about?"

I once met a guy who, by all accounts, appeared to have given up. And by that, I mean that they had pretty much decided that life basically ended in the 1970s and early 1980s. He had no interest in modern technology, was remarkably out of the loop when it came to technology or even current events.

This was all very frustrating to witness, but he was actually proud of himself! Proud to not know much–if anything–about the modern world. (And then he complained about how he kept having trouble finding a job.)

It was quite the flex–an unimpressive one at that.

People Who Avoided Getting COVID Share How They Think They Did It

When the global pandemic hit in March of 2020, everyone hoped that after two weeks or so of social distancing, cases would begin to drop and things would quickly get back to normal.

And though life is slowly getting back to what it once was, cases of COVID-19 continue to ebb and flow.

It almost feels like everyone must have caught COVID-19 at least once by now.

But even three years in and with multiple variants, there are still a very lucky, select few who have yet to test positive for COVID-19.

Redditor jwa8808 was curious to hear how those who have yet to see two red sticks on their rapid tests have managed to avoid catching COVID-19, leading them to ask:

"For people who have never caught covid even once, what's your secret?"
