I seem to recall that McDonald’s had a triple cheeseburger deal on at the time and that $20 was more than enough for not only a brace of those excessively large burgers, but also an accompanying pair of large soft drinks, obligatory large Frenched fries (also x 2) and an extra-large vanilla thick-shake to wash it all down with. Each.
Safe to say that, in the early 1990s, $20 bought a hell of a lot for one person at McDonald’s. But 15 year-old boys are generally known to have a decent propensity for shovelling away excessive amounts of food – hollow legs and all that – so my friend and I were confident we had it in us to finish off our mountain of trans fats and sugary carbohydrates. Alas, on this occasion (and it shames me naught to admit this) $20-worth of McDonald’s had us both beat! We might have finished the burgers and made a dent in the fries, but I’m pretty sure we chucked the drinks in the creek. I doubt we finished the vanilla thick-shakes.
