An amazingly detailed and strange piece from The Awl about the mystery that is the McRib. Apparently the sandwich comes on the market in amazing rhythm with hog prices:”What makes the McRib different from this everyday horror is that a) McDonald’s is huge to the point that it’s more useful to think of it as a company trading in commodities than it is to think of it as a chain of restaurants b) it is made of pork, which makes it a unique product in the QSR world and c) it is only available sometimes, but refuses to go away entirely.”
