What do we want? Bottomless fries! When do we want them? Now!

I am an English Literature major at Long Island University. I am the Head Copyeditor for the school newspaper the Pioneer. In my spare time I impulsively watch the Twilight Saga in one sitting more times than I care to admit. I am also a...

New 'McDonald's of the future' is bringing the people all-you-can-eat fries

Attention, foodies — this is not a drill: McDonald's will be offering bottomless fries in a new Mound City, Missouri, restaurant location, and I couldn't be more envious. But fear not. Perhaps other restaurant locations will one day bless us with this incredible news, and we can sleep through the night knowing we will never face a day when we will run out of fries ever again.

Whether you're a health nut, a splurge fanatic or a plain Jane, there's a chance that all-you-can-eat french fries can be your reality. Come on, you can't possibly sit there and act like this isn't the best thing to ever happen to you. Here's why:

  1. Everyone loves french fries, period.
  2. We'll no longer resort to savagery when someone tries to take a fry from our plate.
  3. Fries are absolutely delicious with ice cream, and let's face it — everyone loves ice cream.
  4. You can't spell happiness without "french fries."
  5. Number 4 is not accurate, but we don't care, because fries are happiness.
  6. Ryan Gosling eats french fries.
  7. We have something in common with Ryan Gosling.
  8. Honestly, why would anyone think this wasn't a good idea?

For all you health nuts out there, it's understood that McDonald's is not a healthy option, which is why the healthy wraps have been removed from the menu. (Good call, McDonald's. Stick with what you know.) I mean, let's face it — we aren't going to McDonald's for a healthy and nutritious meal; we're going to pig out and enjoy ourselves every once in a while. And sometimes it's OK to splurge (at least that's what I tell myself), and what better way to do that than by indulging in the saltiest, greasiest, deliciously addictive french fry? There's just something so significant about those crunchy, golden brown spears from God that makes our taste buds go into flavor overload.

This glorious menu addition is all part of this Missouri franchisee's initiative to revamp the entire dining experience into the "McDonald's of the future." It will include order kiosks to customize your meal to perfection, a play space for video games and a very un-McDonald's interior, with earth tones and sofas. It's due to open in July.

But honestly, the only thing worth caring about is this bottomless fries business, and the day that all-you-can-eat fries are added to every McDonald's menu, the sun may shine a little brighter, which will be a good distraction, since we all will be ferociously stuffing our faces.
