Farm-raised

Farm-raised

I dedicate this comic to my friend, Pat Ryan.

You’ll know it’s McRib season at McDonald’s if you’re friends with Pat Ryan on Facebook. He’ll post a picture of each one he has during the McRib’s limited-time runs. He gets a lot of interesting comments from his friends… almost as controversial as if he had posted a pic of a giraffe kill from big-game hunt. I think he added the sparkles to the post below.

Pat’s latest McRib

I use the Golden Arches brand in this comic because, let’s face it, they are one the most iconic of all brands, period. The “M” literally looks like a brand that could be seen on an old cattle ranch (Old McDonald’s farm?).

But this comic really isn’t fair to McDonald’s. Their Filet-O-Fish® are wild-caught Alaskan Pollock… “sourced from sustainable fisheries”.  Wait, wild-caught from a fishery?  Okay, a little confusing there. But good on McDonalds!  I think this is a carbon foot step in the right direction.

And don’t worry about the sustainability of the McRib.  They are only available for a limited time each year and I’m not really sure there’s any real meat in it.
