McDONALD’S has unveiled its latest food item that will fail because it is not a burger.
The company is pushing ahead with its Spicy Chicken McTortilla despite knowing that any attempt to broaden its customers’ culinary horizons will prove futile.
A spokesman said: “The McTortilla brings a taste of Mexico to McDonald’s, where it will be completely ignored because it isn’t a beefburger in a doughy bun with fries and a pint of glutinous milkshake.
“It uses 100% chicken breast and fresh vegetables but if you wanted proper food you wouldn’t be eating here.”
He added: “We add new items to the menu to maintain customer interest, but after the salads debacle we’re thinking it might be easier to install a long trough of warm beef so you can just stick your face right in it.”
Burger fan Tom Logan said: “I don’t care for new things, so McDonald’s serving food that isn’t burgers is like the monkey brains banquet in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.”
