You may have the mcgangbang or mcslam but i dare you to attempt the McViolation

Its something you can get in Australia as here every burger is made to order(Although the meat is precooked and kept heated)

Mcviolation: Double quater pounder with extra extra meat, extra extra chesse(Exffectivly a pounder) extra McChicken patty extra crispy chicken patty extra extra mayo and extra bacon. Costs about $12 here and has made people throw up.

Then chicken mac, big mac with McChiken patties instead of beef.

just reading that description made me vaguely nauseous.

Is it a fast food hack if it's done with the drinks?

Fill the cup halfway with Coca-Cola/Pepsi, and halfway with lemonade. Goes flat a bit quicker, but tastes good.

I'll try the special-order hacks mentioned here...

You were saying what, then? Nothing? Or just trying for some humor based on the idea of abstract namecalling, or on the idea of fatness?

Yes, folks, that's what the xkcd forum is all about. LOL FAT PEOPLE. Come on down.

to be more serious, I suspect it's the idea that someone thought of that as a good idea, and people have ordered it and eaten it, even though it made them sick. The whole image of the 4 pound burger, eat it all, get it for free schtick. The idea that having no idea of what is too much, of stopping is so prevelent these days.

Thus, the importance of carefully identifying the subject of your criticism, instead of just throwing out comments that are really hurtful to large groups (no pun intended) of people who aren't even involved in whatever you're being critical of.

I figured it was a riff on the aforementioned http://www.thisiswhyyourefat.com , which is finally back after a considerable hiatus!

I've never actually eaten one. It costs so much ordering it special order it it's not worth it to me. I've just seen some people attempt it and most are 190 cm big bastards but one mate was a lanky arse kid who had to gain 6 kilo's to join the army so he said "bootcamp will work it off me. FUCK IT, MCVIOLATE ME!!!" And proceeding to pig out and vomit afterwoods.

There's definitely nothing wrong with learning to cook by experimenting with junky food. That's mostly how I got started a few years ago, and now I'm at the point where I cook some pretty seriously gourmet stuff instead. Just bought The French Laundry last week.

This isn't quite a fast food hack, but sort of close:

I used to order a big, cheap Greek salad from the pizzeria downstairs. Eat all the lettuce, then use the excess salad dressing as a seasoned oil to fry up the tomato wedges, olives, and chunks of feta. Use this as a base for a pasta sauce.

I lol'd. Ludicrous speed -----> Taco Velocity.

Either way, my friend was telling me something about getting a 1 dollar mc double and asking for an extra bun, mac sauce, lettuce and tomatoes... and it turns into a big mac.
As per your burrito, it's pretty nasty to think about. Mostly because I don't put potato in tortillas because even as a Mexican, it's kinda pointless. If i wanted a potato I could have stayed home... they're cheap anyway. Moreover I generally shy away from fast food Mexican places because the best part of the experience for me are the tortillas made by old Mexican ladies... which you just don't get at the fast places.

While not fast food, I hacked Cracker Barrel yesterday. Asked for the Homestyle Chicken dinner, which is usually fried. Asked them to grill the chicken instead. They did, and yea, it was delicious.

Depending on where you live you may have to 'hack' frysauce; in it's most basic form: mayonnaise and ketchup.
You can try 'hacking' soda combinations, although employees don't often understand.

This is a good tip. Fries, for example, can be asked for without salt, and then you add all the salt you want later.

I was trying to find out what time McDonald's stops serving breakfast, and ended up here:

Yeah, that made me nauseous too.

Assuming those guys got a standard fountain drink, they just consumed ~1300 calories.

:oops:

I loled

does it count if you make fast food yourself?

I like buying the packaged chicago town 4 cheese pizza, adding reggae reggae sauce and topping with extra cheese (strong flavoured and harder cheese is best) if I'm not going to eat it with mayo I add black pepper as well.

I just realized this is the perfect venue for my latest discovery; if you ask nicely at Chipotle, they will take two tortillas, melt cheese in between them, and then make you a burrito on the resulting quesadilla. It does turn a thousand calorie meal into a fifteen hundred calorie meal, but it tastes delicious.
