Yarra? Glenelg? These are real places?
A lot of Australian town/place names are Aboriginal words, like Yarra. Glenelg isn't though.

Established in 1836, it is the oldest European settlement on mainland South Australia. It was named after Lord Glenelg, a member of British Cabinet and Secretary of State for War and the Colonies. Through Lord Glenelg the name derives from Glenelg, Highland, Scotland. In Scottish Gaelic the name is Gleann Eilg. The name Glenelg is noteworthy for being a palindrome.

We have some good town names like Jolly Dump, Johnson Siding and Booge, SD. And don't forget about Gaylord, MN!

I had to Google Jolly Dump to see what it was like. They show a car wash as one of their tourist destinations. http://trip-suggest.com/united-states/s ... olly-dump/

But I guess it's better than Baltimore showing abandoned buildings for people to go and shoot dope or smoke crack in. So I don't judge.

It's not so much a town as it's a place on the map :olol: It looks like the Splash N Dash car wash is actually located up the road in Belle Fourche, a town that I wouldn't recommend visiting.

At least there are some people living in Johnson Siding.

Wait what??! 8 minutes would be a cake walk..
The English language had deteriorated into a hybrid of hillbilly, valleygirl, inner-city slang and various grunts. Joe was able to understand them, but when he spoke in an ordinary voice he sounded pompous and faggy to them.

That's what I was thinking...
1 minute WOULD be a challenge.
the quad pounder in 30 minutes is hard.. that picture even in 5 minutes is nothing if you're hungry...
Did I miss something or is it a challenge for vegans or something???

(Quad pounder is what it sounds like.. 16 patties, 16 slices of cheese and about a tonne of sauce... and so large they have to serve it in a salad bowl!! after 3 quarters of the burger, it's going cold and almost impossible to finish the rest and you phyiscally start to feel odd... 3 quarters in 5 minutes.. last patties the rest of the 25 minutes and you would trade your left nut to eat ANYTHING ELSE)

If I'm going to eat it as fast as possible, definitely hit those four sandwiches first while taking sips from one of the two drinks. Then it's the fries and nuggets.

The biggest challenge will be those triangle things on the left. If they're scones, good luck with all that thick starch. :vomit: Something flaky like a turnover would be a lot easier.

Also, I'd hope I could substitute soda for water. Carbonation is the devil when you're cramming your face. Either way, use the second drink for those baked goods.

I'll guess this was posted from some East Coast sissy boy, someone who hasn't competed in an eating challenge for money. I've participated in a hot dog-eating contest because I'm a patriot, and I wanted that $125 restaurant gift card.

Yeah, no thanks. :olol: Hard pass from me.

The only way to fix this is to post video of you eating 4 quarter pounders in 5 minutes.

For a few months, I tried to use it because there's a McDonald's on my commute home. I should be able to order before I leave work, pull into a parking spot, and someone should come out and give me my food. But payment on the McDonald's app is absolute trash, and I'm a noted dumbass.

I made the mistake of either mistyping my information or using an expired credit card. In that situation any app/website will tell the customer: "Hey idiot, your information is incorrect and you're a dumbass." But not McD's, the app just says there's a problem with the transaction and to check with the restaurant. It's real cryptic and made me believe that maybe their online payment system was down or my connection wasn't working.

One time, I wanted to order online so I could lowkey order 2 or 3 Happy Meals for some Mario toys they had. Because the app wouldn't explain that it was my card information, I went up to the drive thru to ask about the order. The damned app had placed four or five different orders, totaling somewhere around 10-12 Happy Meals. :olol: Luckily that got straightened out.

Another time I tried to pay in the app and thought it was successful. I got to the first window, got a knowing glance from the cashier and continued driving forward. Except he hadn't finalized the sale yet and still needed payment, but I had pulled too far ahead to reach back. I had to go back into the restaurant and work for 5-10 minutes to get everything sorted out.

Now I can't even use my account because I managed to softlock myself out of my account. The McDonald's app has this awesome bug when you try to delete the payment information from your account if there's only one card saved. Now it says "Invalid Payment Provider URL" whenever I try to add a new credit card to my account. But I guess it's safe from hackers?

My friend used that glitch from the maccas make your own burger self serve counter things for 8 free cheeseburgers...

Basically, add full meals, chuck cheeseburgers in them, remove the meals and everything off the burgers, then re add stuff to half the burgers for a grand total of nothing...

I mean that’s what they get when you try that self serve bullshit that supermarkets try.

You remove a human from it, and of course other humans will work out that you can get limes and mandarines for the price of lemons.

2kg of good fruit marked as lemons is under $5 not more than $20...

I'd get huge. Being able to select a massive amount of my favourite pieces (breasts & wings) and covering them in gravy...I can feel my arteries hardening just thinking about it.
