The GHETTO MAC - yours for $1.
Let me clarify something. I'm no huge fan of the Golden Arches. I'd much rather have a nice tray of sushi. But this is Wisebread and it's our job to cater to bargain-hunters everywhere. And in fulfilling that aim, I came across GHETTO MAC!
What on earth is GHETTO MAC?
You know, it astounds me of the great lengths some people will go to for a bargain. At roughly $3.39 for just the Big Mac sandwich, a couple of ingenious fellas with a lack of funds decided they could beat the McSystem. Maybe you could make a Big Mac (sort of) with the basic Double Cheeseburger from the $1 menu. Clever huh?
So, our brave heroes with clogged arteries set out to prove that anyone can get a Big Mac for around $1 (they don't really factor in the fries, but hey, I'll cut them some slack). The 4-minute video tells the whole story, but if you don't have the time and are running out to the Drive Thru right now, here's the basic formula.
1: Order a $1 Double Cheeseburger with small fries (you split the fries with your McFrugal buddy)
2: Ask them to replace the regular bun with a sesame seed bun.
3: Then, ask for Mac Sauce instead of Ketchup (as the boys will tell you, Mac Sauce is FREEEE!!!)
4: THEN (as if the server isn't completely annoyed yet), ask for large-cut sliver onions.
5: Open the cheeseburger, create a layer of fries between the two burgers, and close it up.
6: Tuck in, and be within running distance of the nearest bucket.
Personally, I think roadkill looks slightly more appetizing than the finished GHETTO MAC creation. But for all you brave souls out there who'll try anything once, and don't mind the look of this McFrankenstein creation, I say good luck to you! Let me know how it goes down (but not how it comes back up again...ewww).
