McDonald's in Australia thought they would have some April Fool's Day fun by introducing their latest burger creation, "The McPickle." They said, "Pickle lovers, it’s the news you’ve all been waiting for. We’re super stoked to announce the launch of our brand new McPickle Burger. It’s time to tuck into juicy, flavoursome pickles layered between melted cheese, ketchup sauce and toasted sesame seed buns. It’s sure to be a treat for all your senses." Some people loved it, comments included, "OMG, it's a burger designed for me," another one said, "I'm gonna order 1,000."
When word got out that it was a joke, some people got angry, "OMFG if this is an April Fool's joke I'm gonna be mad," and "this shouldn't be a joke." McDonald's put out a statement saying, “We know there’s a lot of love out there for our famous pickles, and the McPickle Burger has certainly got people talking about them. We’re glad Australians have enjoyed our April Fools’ joke!”
Seriously, some people would eat bread, pickles, cheese and ketchup?
