25 years a go a mate and I were in the States in Pennsylvania. We stopped at a McDonald's drive through and I ordered a Big Mac meal. My mate asked the girl if they did veggie burgers to which she replied yes so we placed the order and hit the road. A mile or two down the road my mate opened up his burger to find he had been served a Big Mac but with no burgers, just the lettuce, cheese and sauce

We still have the occasional Maccies for occasions (ie birthdays) when the kids pick it, so it would be good to see a more grounded look at things.
