While in PA this past weekend McDonalds ran tons of ads featuring that the McRib is back (for a limited time of course).

Unfortunately the marketing geniuses at McDonalds things that only people in Pittsburgh like the McRib. Well, maybe I'm only 1 of 5 people in the DC area that do like it and I want one.

This isn't the first time I've seen geographic marketing like this. In Richmond one McDonalds had a "bucket" of fries. It was basically the largest drink container filled with fries. 2 "buckets" = 1 fry basket. True story.

On my way to Harrisonburg one time I stopped and had a pulled pork bbq sandwich from McDonalds. It was actually quite tasty.

I guess I'll just have to move some place where McRibs can be enjoyed by all..otherwise it's just McWrong.

    for the record, wilkes-barre has mcRibs, not that I'd eat that junk or anything.

  2. Abilene has McRibs and has for sometime now. Apparently John has no problem breaking his No McDonald's rule for a McRib.
