McDonald's Austria Now has a Deep-Fried McRib Sandwich
Listen up America! It's time to step up the game. Japan McDonald's has been whipping America's ass in weirdo novelty sandwiches in the past few months, and France is debuting some sort of fancy burger-on-a-baguette thing. America's Fast Food, it's time you jumped into the ring. It's not enough to have Kate Upton eating Carl's Jr. sexily (though, admittedly, that's worth a lot). We need a Death Star.
Yes, indeed, it's a sad commentary on the state of American competitiveness that Austria, not the good ol' U.S. of A., came up with this, the deep-fried McRib with bacon, pepper-Jack cheese, lettuce, onion and honey-mustard sauce. It's called the McRibster, which is now Scott's nickname for a while. The damn thing is available in Austria -- which, we understand, is a country in Europe best known as the home of Julie Andrews, who, we hear, is an actress of some sort -- until March 27, according to Eater.
