The Dude Who Invented The Big Mac Died, Unfortunately Didn’t Bring McDonald’s With Him


First things first, dying sucks so thoughts and prayers to his family. He was 98 and lived longer than most people.

Now I can get to how I really feel: F*ck McDonald’s. I haven’t eaten McDonald’s since I was a drunk high school student, which is arguably when the dumbest version of myself ever existed. Forget about all the shady shit they find in the chicken nuggets. Let’s talk about the f*cking BURGERS man, that’s like some alien shit. If you can look me in the face and tell me you believe that it’s 100% beef, I will give you trophy because you’ll officially be the World’s Biggest Asshole. If it weren’t for the heaping pile of dog shit that is Burger King (other than chicken fries, shout out chicken fries), more people would be woke to the fact that McDonald’s is a cancer on the American culture.

Anyway, RIP to Michael Delligatti, the guy who invented the Big Mac and the Egg McMuffin. Can’t say I respect your business, because again, #DownWithMcDonalds, but I respect the hustle. Inventing two of the franchise’s most iconic sandwiches is definite hustle.

via USA Today:

The Pittsburgh-area McDonald’s franchisee who created the Big Mac nearly 50 years ago has died. Michael “Jim” Delligatti was 98.

McDonald’s spokeswoman Kerry Ford confirmed that Delligatti died at home surrounded by his family on Monday night.

Delligatti’s franchise was based in Uniontown, about 40 miles south of Pittsburgh, when he invented the chain’s signature burger with two all-beef patties, “special sauce,” lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun.
