Americans



I hate to say it, but I have to say it... Not all Americans. The ingredient lists for the vaccines are readily available, but they can look a little dense for the sake of precision. The Pfizer vaccine contains water, sugar, salt, lipids, and messenger RNA. I've never had a McRib sandwich, so you're on your own there. (Thanks, WTM!)

You've never tried it? Although it is really some kind of 'pork formed into a shape that vaguely looks like ribs with barbeque sauce', as I recall, it wasn't too bad.

Then again, I was brave enough to try the McDonald's Crab Sandwich when they had them very briefly around San Francisco Bay Area:

The crab sandwich was actually amazingly delicious, though I'm not sure if I would normally trust crab from McDonalds (outside of special events).

The right combination of some ingredients in the McRib can make a pretty good explosive device.
