Imagine that you're at the OFM's for a long day of gaming, and he volunteers to run down to McDonalds for burgers. What do you want?

Big Mac

capncarp14 Jan 2017 1:29 p.m. PST

A Filet-o-fish encased between a Mc Chicken and a Triple Quarter-pounder wth cheese.
And a Diet Coke, and a side of Lipitor.

Id ask him to go to the Burger King across the street and get me two Whoppers, some fries and a large coke.

raylev314 Jan 2017 1:46 p.m. PST

He'd have to stop at Subway, too, to get a 6 inch black forest ham sandwich….(high cholesterol and hypertension).

Large diet DP (I know, but I need to cut back somewhere)

I guess he's too cheap for Braum's, huh?

dBerczerk14 Jan 2017 2:24 p.m. PST

A Burger Royale and a Five Dollar Shake.

Stryderg14 Jan 2017 2:25 p.m. PST

The Beast Rampant14 Jan 2017 3:54 p.m. PST

Is it Thursday? I want two chicken sandwiches. And see what the Happy Meal prize is right now.

Personal logo Editor in Chief Bill The Editor of TMP Fezian14 Jan 2017 4:02 p.m. PST

I want two chicken sandwiches.

Was that the Artisan Grilled Chicken Sandwich, the Buttermilk Crispy Chicken Sandwich, or the McChicken?

rustymusket Supporting Member of TMP14 Jan 2017 4:25 p.m. PST

quarterpounder, fries, large Dr. Pepper. (as long as it is make believe – in real life I get the fish filet calling it a healthy alternative and water.)

Cmde Perry14 Jan 2017 4:39 p.m. PST

Grand Mac (1/3 lb. version of the Big Mac)(yes Virginia, there really is one, if you live in the right test market)
Large fries
Large chocolate shake

or if I'm behaving myself, 2 Filet o' Fish and a large Coke Zero

Jozis Tin Man14 Jan 2017 5:36 p.m. PST

Double quarter pounder with Cheese, fries, sweet tea.

Or I try to convince him to go to Culver's for Cheese curds and a butter burger.

Mushroom Angus, fries, Large Chocolate Shake

A shamrock shake.

Tommy2014 Jan 2017 7:23 p.m. PST

McRib, large fry & large Coke.

JimSelzer Supporting Member of TMP14 Jan 2017 8:39 p.m. PST

fish and fries for me

The Beast Rampant15 Jan 2017 12:03 a.m. PST

Was that the Artisan Grilled Chicken Sandwich, the Buttermilk Crispy Chicken Sandwich, or the McChicken?

The right tasty Crispy Buttermilk variety, if you please! And a large Dr. Pepper.

Mako1115 Jan 2017 3:31 a.m. PST

In-N-Out Burger would be my first choice, for a double hamburger (no cheese), with grilled onions only, fries, and a coke (Pepsi is better, but they don't have that).

Carl's Jr. Big Burger for me, since I don't want to pay for all the extras I don't like, if that's a choice.

If not, BK next, for a whopper, as above.

At McD's, a 1/4 pounder, plain and fresh cooked (hate their barely warm, precooked burgers), large fries, and a coke (again, Pepsi is better, but unavailable, sadly).

Prince Rupert of the Rhine15 Jan 2017 3:59 a.m. PST

Don't worry my wife packed me a lunch

So if she asked that's what I ate…..

ZULUPAUL Supporting Member of TMP15 Jan 2017 5:01 a.m. PST

SW salad & Diet Dr Pepper

This reminds me of the "fat Sweaty Coppers" from The Fast Show:

Given the initial scenario, this should probably be cross posted to a Fantasy board.


Quarter pounder with cheese, plain
Dr. Pepper

Waco Joe15 Jan 2017 10:45 a.m. PST

If the choice is limited to McD's then several boxes of 20 piece nuggets and then stop somewhere for sweet and sour sacue, chinese mustard and or szechuan sauce.

or and a side of fries.

If any burger is fair game it is Whataburger double meats with cheese or go home.

Personal logo Dye4minis Supporting Member of TMP15 Jan 2017 1:09 p.m. PST

I'll take a chicken box. (Yes, here in Germany,Mickey D's offer a box of 6 BBQ chicken wings, 6 hot wings and 12 McNuggets (with 4 sauces) for about $9.00 USD. BTW, they charge for extra (more than one) ketchup all over Europe! (50 cents a pack, too!) OFM, Have a burger on me as well for your offer!

…..and a Large Coke WITH ICE!!!! (Europe you gotta ask for ice!)

….can't wait to get home in a few weeks…..

Hungry Tom

Mako1115 Jan 2017 1:21 p.m. PST

I miss Whataburger………..


Wow, 50 cents a pack for ketchup?

Condiment criminals!

What's the deal with Europeans not wanting ice? Seems rather backward to me, but heard the same from my ex-GF decades ago, after she went for a visit there.

Prince Rupert of the Rhine15 Jan 2017 2:10 p.m. PST

Mako its because we are tight I pay for a cup of coke not half a cup of coke. I don't want no snivelling teenager filling half my coke with ice I rather have a full cup of coke it already comes out of the machine cold…..

Oberlindes Sol LIC15 Jan 2017 7:02 p.m. PST

We usually barbecue our own burgers between the day game (usually miniatures) and the evening game (usually role-playing or board).

If we were going to MacDonald's, I would have a cheeseburger and medium fries and iced tea mixed with lemonade.

nickinsomerset16 Jan 2017 12:19 a.m. PST

Mixed kebab or a curry!

Tally Ho!

Who asked this joker16 Jan 2017 8:56 a.m. PST

Another fillet o' fish please! I assume the tap water in OFM's area is drinkable.

capncarp16 Jan 2017 9:29 a.m. PST

Since _which_ McDonald's was not mentioned, I'd like to change my order to a McAloo Tikka, a Maharaja Mac (the corn-and-cheese patty option, please), a bag of Pirri-Pirri and a Coke Zero.


capncarp16 Jan 2017 9:39 a.m. PST

Who asked this joker--"I assume the tap water in OFM's area is drinkable."
All Pennsylvania water is drinkable. Depending on which of our pristine watersheds you get it from, you may have to thin it down with alcohol or gasoline, but you can drink it. I was raised on Schuylkill (pronounced "Skookle" not "School-kill" by us indigenous folk) Punch, which carried the effluent from the City of Reading past my hometown, down to the friendly City of Brotherly Love to merge the streams with the Mighty Delaware. Yep, us what survived it were made stronger by its mysterious non-aqueous components. But I understand the mutation rate has gotten lower, nowadays. Pity. Culling the herd and all that.

Personal logo Parzival Supporting Member of TMP16 Jan 2017 6:54 p.m. PST

Well, if he'll just take a swing slightly out of his way down to Crossplains, Tennessee, I'll take a burger and a chocolate milkshake from Thomas Drugs, which the staff will assure you are The Best You Will Ever Eat. And they're right. They even beat out my other "out of his way" choice, which would be In-N-Out.

Gunfreak Supporting Member of TMP17 Jan 2017 4:19 a.m. PST

Two big macs with cheese only, medium fries and medium coke zero.

Stepman317 Jan 2017 9:24 a.m. PST

2 Bacon Double Cheeseburgers, Large Fries and a Vanilla Shake…

zoneofcontrol17 Jan 2017 8:15 p.m. PST

I'm from Lebanon County (pronounced Lebnin by the locals) Our water is just good (pronounced chust goot by the locals). My work takes me into Lancaster County (pronounced Lang ester by the locals) and their water tastes like melted down canons from the Cornwall Iron Furnace.

Scorpio18 Jan 2017 7:11 a.m. PST

When this eventually gets made into a poll, please include a selection for "this really didn't need to be a poll."

Oberlindes Sol LIC18 Jan 2017 7:33 p.m. PST

I was a college student in the Philadelphia suburbs a long time ago, and although I can remember the taste and pronunciation of Yuengling (yoong-ling), Genessee, Iron City, and Rolling Rock, I have no memory of the tap water at all.

capncarp18 Jan 2017 11:50 p.m. PST

With 4 brews to vary your fluid intake, you may not have _had_ to drink any of the local water. BTW us folk here in the mid-state pronounce it "Ying-Ling"
