McItaly Burger Symbolizes Everything Wrong With Italy, Burgers

You know, for Guidos.
This might be overstating the case just a bit, but there's certainly something to it: "If ever there was a sign of the moral bankruptcy of Silvio Berlusconi's government, it is the sight of a McDonald's apron wrapped around the svelte frame of the Minister of Agriculture, Luca Zaia as he helped launch the new McItaly range of burgers. The President of the Council cavorting with young women, the allegations of shady connections, slippery financial arrangements, dubious political allegiances, and all-round dodgy dealings are as nothing when compared to this monstrous act of national betrayal." In other Silvio Berlusconi news: "A spokesman for the Prime Minister refused to comment on the mystery surrounding his hairline." Ah, Italia!

Way to salt the wound, the McDonald's facing the fucking Pantheon wasn't enough?

It does have a great view of the Pantheon.

Wouldn't that be "McItalia", or do they say "McItaly" with a braying Yank accent?

Definitely the latter.

It's exotic!

Ooh, it says the McItaly features artichoke spread and asiago! That sounds DELICIOUS. Step aside, Panera!

Nice bread, though. I mean, when's the last time you saw a nice McCiabatta?

To say that I was perplexed by the target market for this burger would be an understatement of Faustian proportions. I can only guess it's aimed at American tourists who can return home saying that yes they have dined on authentic Italian cuisine (harsh, I know they're not *that* bad).
But damn, ok it does sound tasty. I'm going to have to try this at home.

"The President of the Council cavorting with young women, the allegations of shady connections, slippery financial arrangements, dubious political allegiances, and all-round dodgy dealings are as nothing when compared to this monstrous act of national betrayal."

I'm assuming the irony is intended in the first five points of order? Well done.

Also, Nine is just terrible.
