Today I decided to go for it. I would go get that Shamrock Shake that has been calling my name since their 2010 arrival at the McDonald's on the corner of Clark and Addison.
As I pulled into the drive thru, I saw a poster advertising Shamrock Shakes, and I thought "That looks fancy..." as the Sham Shake was topped with whipped cream and a maraschino cherry. I figured that was just for show, as a way to try to get non-believers to go out on a limb and order this mythical mint deliciousness.
I didn't take it as a warning that McDonald's has fucked with one of my favorite March traditions.
I should have.
What gives McDonald's? Why would you mess with perfection?
