    @Von Jones I hear the ack but taste the ick hahaha! Thanks for the video and time to start a petition to change the name to Big Muck. It sounds rude but we will get used to it. "I am headed down to Muck Donalds for a big double muck." Sure glad I quit going to McDonald's many years ago.

    But the McRib commercials sound like an "in between" of the No-Middle-Vowel "McRib" and the Mr. Jagger "MickRib," depending on which commercial you happen to be watching. But it's never "MacRib."

    I would submit that this sandwich--using the same prefix of the company's name--is the better indicator of how to pronounce "McDonalds" than a sandwich that has modified the prefix as a separate second word.

    This says "McRib"


    This says "MickRib"


    This is me realizing what I just wasted my time doing
