It's A Rib Right Out Of History

The Flintstones Grand Poobah Meal
McDonald's (1994)
The Flintstones movie, starring John Goodman and Rick Moranis, debuted in theaters 25 years ago today.  McDonald's ran a promotion using the film as a vehicle for the return of the McRib sandwich.  Since then, it has come and gone at least a dozen times, the most recent of which was last October.  If they ever release it in conjunction with the Shamrock Shake, I may go into a food coma.

I found this sign a few years ago at the Garden Drive In Flea Market for five bucks.  It now hangs in my garage and serves as a daily reminder of my love of cheesy movies and unhealthy limited edition fast food products.
