Craving McDonald’s and willing to spend $141.33? A McEverything it is - and a Diet Coke to wash it all down.
Nick Chipman, who blogs at DudeFoods.com, purchased one of every breakfast and lunch sandwich at a McDonald’s in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, to make a “McEverything.”
“Obviously, everything at McDonalds starts with a 'Mc,'” as Chipman said. The number one thing on the 32-year-old’s list of life goals was to make this monstrous sandwich.
“I have kind of a weird bucket list. Most people are like, ‘Hey, I want to go skydiving.’ Mine was like, ‘Hey, I want to make a McEverything,” said Chipman.
The workers at the McDonald’s franchise were not at all upset by Chipman’s large order, but rather shocked. “They were like, are you seriously going to eat all this?" Chipman said.
However, his family wasn’t at all surprised. “They are kind of used to my ridiculous food creations by now,” Chipman admitted.
To make the McEverything, Chipman used “lots and lots of bamboo skewers” to keep the gigantic sandwich together. Then he disassembled it and filled up his fridge with enough sandwiches for about another three days.
When asked about director Morgan Spurlock’s film "Super Size Me" which shows a man following a McDonald’s diet for a month, Chipman said, “That documentary had an adverse effect on me. It doesn’t affect me the way that everyone else I know got affected by it.”
Instead, he craved food from McDonald's.
Of his idea, Chipman said, “People either think it’s hilarious or hate it.” He added, “It is the same as going to the grocery store and buying food for seven days.”
Thankfully, Chipman doesn’t have to worry too much about a gym membership after finishing the McEverything. “The owner of the place where my wife works pays for (the employees') gym memberships and he pays for mine too. He just assumed, ‘Hey, you need to go to the gym.'”
What else in on his bucket list? About fifty other food items. “I think my next plan is to make some custom giant tortilla. Get one of everything at Taco Bell and make a giant burrito; wrap everything up in a tortilla,” Chipman said.
And for the record, no, he did not order fries with his McEverything.
