    H8Monga: Nene? What is that about?! I do have to say the McGriddle is GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD! I had my first (and only so far) last week. It's like a big breakfast with (well the sandwich I had) bacon eggs with cheese and pancakes all in one... all I needed was milk! Now about hermaphrodites... well... I have no clue... don't think I'd want to know first hand... but explain!

    bustyredhead: lol I work with the funniest pervert ever. He recorded a radio ad about the McGriddle, and modified it some. Let me explain...

    Announcer: What would make your morning more unique?

    Guy #1: Waking up next to a supermodel.

    Guy #2: Waking up next to a supermodel.

    Gal #1: Waking up next to a supermodel.

    Gal #2: Waking up next to a supermodel.

    (Here's where things get changed...)

    Coworker: Waking up next to a hermaphrodite.

    Announcer: Guess which one we chose. Hermaphrodites; they're bizarre, but they're yummy.

    I'm sorry, but when I heard that, I nearly died from laughter. OMFG, that was great. lol

    7x6andchg: I haven't had one...but a friend of mine told me it tastes like the "griddle cake" isn't quite fully cooked and finishes up in the heat of your mouth. :eek:

    That's how HE described it, anyway

    gigantikok: first of all, it's always stupid to center an entire marketing campaign on labeling a food product "bizarre". Bizarre is about one of the worst words you can use. You're just not going to sell food using labels like that, it turns on subconsious sirens in people's heads saying "bizarre?! Dont eat bizarre!". SO. yea. Mcdonald's is stupid.

    Second, they just sound kinda gross. I think i'll just stick with my Egg McMuffin.

    prepstudinsc: I've tried the McGriddle with bacon, egg and cheese two times. I thought maybe the first time I ate one it just wasn't cooked. The second time, it was the same way. I think that the griddle cake part is ok, but when it's mixed with the egg and cheese and stuff, well, it's just pretty gross in my book. Sweet and savory don't do it for me in the morning.

    When I order a McGriddle, I skip the egg and cheese. A plain sausage McGriddle reminds me of a cross between the pancake/sausage sandwiches and the raisin toast/sausage sandwiches that Mom used to make when we were kids. I don't find it at all strange.

    So IMHO, McGriddles are not bizarre, and hermaphrodites are not yummy!

    7x6andchg: DMW -

    You might have something there - I'm betting that a big part of the "uncooked" texture of the thing is because the cooked cheese and egg textures (milky, wet, gooey) are leeching into the pancake-y part. Now pancakes with sausage sounds like the way to go. THAT one I wil have to try.

    Looking at it from their side....I don't think I'd want to have the best of both worlds between my legs.

    As for the McGriddles and eggs, one of my Grandpa's favorite breakfasts was pancakes topped with over-easy eggs and lots of salt & pepper. Now that's yummy!

    Hermaphrodite porn's faked. True hermaphrodites simply have intermediate genitalia, not two sets (which is impossible, anyway.) A hermaphrodite might have a larger clitoris (or smaller penis), along with a vagina where the scrotal raphe is, for example. The gonads may be anything from one testis/one ovary (Only one recorded instance of this "true hermaphrodite": A now-dead South African who lived as a man.) to a mix of tissues (and thus sterility) to one set or the other.

    You see, the genitalia are homologous. I could do a treatise on how ancient cultures viewed this homology.

    Homology = anatomical similarity.

    Nah ... what you get doesn't really belong in either world.
    While hermaprodites do indeed have chacteristics of both sexes, they are not properly male or female. In fact, they're closer to being neuter. A look at the genitals of true hermaphrodites can be an unsettling experience. Many people think that hermaphrodite = pre-op transsexual with breast surgery and on hormones living as a woman. Don't buy into that popular misconception. Most true hermaphrodites are uncomfortable with their condition as well.

    sammygirly: But back to the McGriddles....

    These are nirvana in my mouth, hell on my thighs - but I'm going to admit that at one point last week, I had them 3 days in a row.

    Sausage and egg all the way!!

    Course, I only noticed the golden arches were etched into the top on the third eating....they are too yummy to slow down and enjoy the scenery

    AnonyMs: [tongue in cheek]Out of all the many topics I have seen discussed on this board over the last couple of years in its various incarnations, I have to say this one is the most disgusting yet.  Have we really sunk so low as to discuss the taste and texture of McDonald's food?  What an amazing waste of bandwidth![tongue in cheek]
    Having gotten that out of my system, Egg McMuffin is the only food McDonalds has ever offered truly worth eating.

    H8Monga: I dunno why people want to sue people like McDonald's, you ate and enjoyed the food didn't you? You just liked it too much! Your fault... my fault... *pats belly*

    I like the bacon egg and cheese biscuits the most. I'll buy more McGriddles if I can get up that early! It's neat they have the arches in them... yummy art eh?

    awellhungboi: I had never even heard of a McGriddle until this thread!  Haven't heard the commericals either (they're pretty strict here in the ashram).   I agree with Gigantikok, though, why would a company describe one of it's sandwiches as bizarre?  Reading the description it doesn't sound bizarre to me--not to my particular taste, perhaps--but nowhere near bizarre.  Bizarre would be eggs, pancakes, sausage, jellyfish tentacles, a picture of Bob Barker and three jagged pieces of metal served in a straw hat.  (Actually, I think that's Arby's breakfast sandwich).

    (oh, and I like that [tounge in cheek] [/tounge in cheek] code, AnonyMs! I'm going to have to start using that!)

    I'M GOING TO ARBY'S!!!!!!!

    The commercials I've seen usually have the people saying the sandwish isn't bizarre at the end when they witness something truly bizarre.

    Okay...

    intermediate = in between two categories
    raphe = line of symmetry in most animals, visible on certain structures like the tongue, penis/clitoris, and scrotum. (Exceptions are mostly underwater, like sponges, jellyfish, and sand dollars.)
    sterility = inability to reproduce, e.g. a mule
    treatise = written discourse
