The foodie world was stunned today as the creator of McDonald’s Sausage McMuffin was named a semifinalist for the James Beard award, the nation’s most prestigious culinary prize.
Reaction to the announcement was mixed- here’s a few of the responses from area chefs:
One said: “Is this a joke? How could the inventor of a such a processed, unflavorful, unhealthy, unnatural, un-food be in the running for a James Beard award. It’s an insult to chefs, food, and humanity in general.”
Another commented: “You know what, it’s hard to deny how great McDonald’s breakfast is. I wouldn’t for a minute try to tell you their burger or chicken is any good, but their breakfast actually hits the spot once in a while. Kudos to the James Beard folks for having an open mind about this stuff.”
A final chef replied: “That’s the least of my concerns- America is literally imploding day by day…food just doesn’t matter any more.”
This is a work of fiction…also known as satire. Our disclaimer is here.
