Your Friday Morning Florida Report

AUGUST 15–A “crazed” McDonald’s customer whose Filet-O-Fish order was somehow botched at the drive-thru window “pitched a fit” and began bashing another vehicle with a shopping cart, Florida police report.

The male suspect, who remains at large, was in line Sunday at a McDonald’s in Sarasota when he “did not get his fillet of fish,” according to cops.

    I used to eat those things like candy before I went keto. They’re addictive. I always looked forward to Easter, even though I’m agnostic. The local McDonald’s sold them 2 for $2 during Lent. I referred to them as “Lentburgers”. I can understand his anger without approving of it; those things are really good.

    No description? I suspect that tells its own story.

    I didn’t know anyone ate those.

      Well, they’re simple, with only four ingredients, but somehow it all just sort of works. It was one of my pleasures; I didn’t feel a bit guilty about it. I miss them, yes, I do. Fish sandwiches are disappearing from the American landscape; I’ve noticed over the years that they’ve gotten difficult to find. I always enjoyed the Fillet-o-Fish. Of course, it was always best not to ask too many questions about the pedigree of the fish, so I lived in the illusion that I was eating fresh-caught Atlantic cod.

        If you like them, great. But I certainly hope you don’t actually believe that they have “only four ingredients”. The company lists almost six dozen ingredients, and they are not required to list everything, so there are most likely over a hundred ingredients in those sandwiches.

        The fish used is pollock, not cod. The pedigree of their pollock is actually not too bad, they source it pretty carefully. But one of the main reasons why fish sandwiches are disappearing is that it is becoming much more difficult to catch fish in industrial quantities as the populations decline, so the price of fish is rising faster than the price of meat.
