I guess that putting your camcorder on the sushi conveyor belt is common. I can’t get enough of them for some reason. I love watching the reactions of diners as the cam passes by.
The McGangBang ranks up there in the holy pantheon of WTF. It’s a sandwich made from a double cheeseburger and a McChicken sandwich â€” where you put an entire McChicken sandwich inside a double cheeseburger. It’s a creative manipulation of existing menu items, and an exercise in frugality: taking two items off of the Dollar Menu and creating an entirely new sandwich for a total of $2.16. Truly, it’s a sandwich that’s more than the sum of its parts.
The naming, of course, is somewhat obscene â€” “gangbang” is defined as “sexual intercourse with multiple partners in turn or at the same time.” It’s illicit in more ways that one â€” chicken and beef most definitely make for an unnatural pairing.
In addition, it’s sort of a subversive act for people to order it by name, as well as a thrill to confound the McDonald’s employee with an order for a McGangBang â€” so much so that people are documenting their experiences at drive-thrus and counters on YouTube (see the many, many videos after the jump).

This is when pop diva wannabes sing sixty notes for a single syllable – it’s octave showboating and a form of auditory abuse. It’s on display with basically every American Idol contestant and almost every pop/hip-hop/R&B song on the radio.
Message to young pop stars: Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston have been there and done that. Move on. No more of this nonsense – not on American Idol, not while you’re singing the National Anthem, not ever! You are fracturing words into a soulless slur of syllables.
Your vocal gymnastics have become predictable and alienating. A steady note can be transcendent – try it sometime. Your amateur warbling is a trite, self-indulgent form of exhibitionism.
