Holy sow, Charleston was the inspiration for the McRib

Too good to be true

In what can only be described as a finger-licking gift from god, we've learned that the McRib was inspired by Charleston.

No really.

In a new video posted yesterday on McDonald's YouTube page, franchise historian Jessica Farrell explains that the creation of the pork patty smashed into a Play-Doh mold and shellacked in what appears to be the remnants of a yam-fed infant's nappy is the result of a trip to the Holy City.

In 1980 McDonald's Chef Rene traveled to our fair city, ate a mind-blowing plate of ribs, and immediately decided to bastardize the experience in perpetuity with the unholy mess that is the McRib.

And here we thought we were only good for a Conde Nast nom but oh no, we've inspired much worse than that.

Now if we can only get a Charleston Free McRib day on the books, all our culinary aspirations will have come true.
