  • 'We want sauce'

    A McDonald’s public relations stunt has ended in chaos and acrimony after the fast food chain promised fans of the TV show Rick and Morty a limited edition, long-out-of-production Szechuan dipping sauce and then swiftly ran out.

    Police were called to at least one outlet after people in queues for the sauce began getting angry and chanting “we want sauce”.

    Fans of Rick and Morty, a hugely popular US science fiction cartoon that riffs off the Back to the Future films, descended on McDonald’s restaurants in cities across the US on Saturday after the chain announced it would be selling a limited run of a long out-of-production Szechuan dipping sauce that is referenced in the show’s third season.

    While at a restaurant in Newark, angry customers held up protest signs to demand the sauce they had come for.

    In some parts of the US, fans encountered stores that had not received the promised sauce and staff who were not aware of the promotion.

    In other places, stores only got 20 packets of sauce.

    McDonald’s, which in its press release for the promotion said that the sauce release would be “really, really limited”, has apologised to fans that missed out.

    Ultimately, the fallout from the stunt did not dampen demand for the sauce, with packets currently listed for hundreds of dollars on Ebay.

    A true survivalist would eithr have made the sauce himself, or would have stocked up on this sauce already when it came out (at the time of "Mulan") so hat he can keep himself supplied for a lifetime
    When people ask you what happened tell them the north remembers.

        I suspect the rioters are just having a bit of fun.

                To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Rick and Morty.

                  I've never watched this show, but in the process of looking up wtf this was about, I ran across an article arguing that the rabid fans were, in fact, completely missing the point, and that in the original show the character does a lot of horrible things as part of an insane scheme to get this stupid sauce back. The whole joke was that the sauce was an asinine thing to obsess over and all those horrible things were thus a meaningless tragedy. Or something. Anyway, I have no idea what this show is about and will probably still never watch it.

                      Ah. I can't even be bothered to catch up on the Venture Brothers and I really liked that one. So I think I'll still pass. Also, I am deeply suspicious of anyone who likes McDonald's food.

                            The same is true of any number of higher-quality restaurants. Chik-fil-A, for example, or Panera. I hear Steak & Shake is good, but I can never find one near where I live.
