Cops Called After McDonald's Rick And Morty Special Edition Szechuan Promotion Blows Up

Submitted by: daegog 7 months ago in Funny News & Politics


McDonald’s has brought back its special limited edition Szechuan Sauce - available just once in the summer of 1998 in a promotion for Disney's Mulan - just for Rick and Morty.
The sauce was featured in the show's Season 3 premiere, which aired back in April, when time travelling alcoholic granddad Rick tells the alien holding him captive about the magical condiment. 
'I want that Mulan McNugget sauce, Morty,' Rick told his grandson at the end of the first episode. 'That's my series arc, Morty! If it takes nine seasons!'

Unfortunately, the limited sauce supply ran out and fans are upset -- so upset, local police had to restore order. And the outrage didn't just take place at one McDonalds, according to The Guardian, chaos erupted at just about every McDonalds chain that was participating in the limited-run offer across America...

If you're really desperate (and don't want to wait nine seasons) you can start your bidding here or here.

The shortage is a ruse. What a great PR campaign. All these people begging for a sauce at Mcdonalds. "You got to be smart to follow Rick and Morty" my ass. Tools.

So, why can't the factories just spin up more of the stuff?  Did they lose the rights to it?  I can't imagine they didn't totally buy the formula from the beginning.

okay people, we need to set something straight. rick is NOT a time traveler. got it? there is no time travel in rick and morty. they froze time at the end of the first season, and the first episode to the second season is about how fucked up their timeline became as a result of it, "you broke your time twice!" the creators have talked about not doing time travel in the show. "heres whats great about the first episode of season 2 is that its a cautionary tale of why you don't fuck with time." - justin roiland.

thezigrat some anit-semitic animator from the 30s whose legacy has grown into a bunch of kids animated movies and tv shows, and has even consumed both star wars and the marvel movies and tv. star wars is a sci/fi space opera, opera is where fat people yell at each other and people pay to see it. marvel is a comic book universe created by a bunch of people but the focus falls on one crazy eccentric old man named stan lee whose signature i have on a spiderman poster. spiderman is a teenaged superhero with powers of a spider. a spider is a creepy eight legged earth dweller, a superhero is some one who saves people with super powers, and a teenager is stupid.

thezigrat no one of consequence anymore. but his brother charlie murphy was hysterical and had hilarious and incredible stories like playing basketball with prince. basketball is an athletic human pass-time and prince was a musician of great renown, his music may have even been known in your stretch of the universe.

robthelurker You got it all twisted.  Charlie Murphy is only remotely known because of Eddie Murphy.

Eddie was the top comic thruout the 80s, had great movies like Trading Places, Beverly Hills Cop, Coming to America, 48 Hrs, but i think Nutty Professor and Norbit were in the 90s.

Which is not to say Charlie Murphy isn't a funny guy, the dude was funny as hell, but you cannot compare the two, It would be like saying Robin is this great super hero character and Batman was this guy who was just around sometimes.

daegog first of all, robin is far more than just batmans sidekick. robin is almost as old as batman himself, and his character has grown and changed over the past 7 decades. robin is just as great a superhero character as batman is.

secondly, dude, i know who eddie murphy is. i grew up in the 90s. i watched his black remake of dr. doolittle, i watched shrek. but as i said, eddie murphy is no one of consequence any more, did you see pluto nash? but his brother, fucking charlie murphy!? because of his stories on chappelles show, he will always be remembered by a cult following. eddie murphy has started to fade into obscurity. i knew eddie was the more famous brother, in all of charlies stories about crazy celebrities, charlie is only there because he is the brother of a famous actor. i never even knew charlie murphy existed until chappelles show, long after i knew who eddie murphy was.

I almost went out, there was one real close to my house but I knew this would be the result.  Besides, you had to order chicken strips...WTF does a pescatarian need with chicken strips?  Fuck McDonald's, they totally screwed the pooch on this.  They should have gone with "Adult" Happy Meals Rick and Morty themed only available after 10pm with more quantity.  But no, they just fucked it up...

Yeah, my buddy dragged me to a McDonald's about 40 minutes away to see if they had any sauce. They didn't. We didn't bitch about it, though. We just went and bought nerd stuff at a local shop, then had Chinese food, where, he had Szechuan shrimp.

Draculya Considering it's probably nothing but High Fructose Corn Syrup and Red Dye #40, I would mostly likely agree with you :)

I heard most stores only had 20 packets of the sauce. Must of been what was left of the sauce from its original run, but decided the repackage the old packets and just go with it.
