The 24/7 McBreakfast: Want fries with that?

Our resident poet returns, blissing out on McDonald’s recent announcement that it's adding all-day breakfasts to the menu. Who could ask for anything more?

WASHINGTON, September 5, 2015 – The Wall Street Journal scooped everyone else in the media earlier this week, being the very first newsrag to announce the official Second Coming of Breakfast:

McDonald’s Corp. is embarking on its biggest operational change in years as it tries to juice flagging sales, with plans to offer breakfast items all day at its more than 14,300 U.S. restaurants starting Oct. 6.

“McDonald’s customers for years have asked the company to sell breakfast items past the traditional 10:30 a.m. cutoff, but the challenges of cooking Egg McMuffins alongside Big Macs deterred the company. In an interview, McDonald’s USA President Mike Andres said it is the biggest strategic move the company has made since it rolled out its McCafe line of coffee and espresso drinks across the U.S. in 2009.”

I’m contemplating getting plastic surgery done on my mouth to install a valve to drain off all the drool that collects at the mere thought of those scrumptious MickeyD breakfasts becoming available to me for lunch and dinner.

Hell, I may just bring a bedroll and sleep inside one of their stores. Why go anywhere else, ever, now that I can get breakfast 24/7? Dennys seems so yesterday.

Of course, some people have a problem with the whole franchise/cost-of-production/nutrition thing – but let me tell you something, you granola huggers: if everyone on the planet started out their day with a good breakfast at McDonald’s, there’d be no more war or telemarketing to frazzle our nerves.

And I love the way McDonald’s officially announced this beautiful scheme. USA Today reported:

“The company began spreading news of the all-day breakfast rollout on Twitter by tweeting the news at customers who had previously told them they wanted McDonald’s to expand availability of its breakfast menu.”

Now that’s what I call customer service!

At long last I’ll have hotcakes as the evening shadows crash.
If only Mickey D’s would offer classic corned beef hash!
An Egg McMuffin is the only comfort food I’m needing
when life oppresses me and leaves me beaten up and bleeding.
I never choose McNuggets or their French fries, though delightful;
Their hash browns taste so good, the Burger King is waxing spiteful.
