McDonald's Big Mac creator Jim Delligatti dies at 98

PITTSBURGH ― You probably don’t know his name, but you’ve almost certainly devoured his creation: two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, on a sesame seed bun.

Michael James “Jim” Delligatti, the McDonald’s franchisee who created the Big Mac nearly 50 years ago and saw it become perhaps the best-known fast-food sandwich in the world, died Monday at home in Pittsburgh. Delligatti, who according to his son ate at least one 540-calorie Big Mac a week for decades, was 98.

Delligatti’s franchise was based in Uniontown, not far from Pittsburgh, when he invented the chain’s signature burger in 1967 after deciding customers wanted a bigger sandwich. Demand exploded as Delligatti’s sandwich spread to the rest of his 47 stores in Pennsylvania and was added to the chain’s national menu in 1968.

He was responsible for killing millions with his heart-clogging Big Mac. Thanks, Jimmy. If he lived to be 98 you can bet he didn't eat any of that Mickey D's shit food.

Will he be buried in a casket that looks like a Big Mac box?

Two great Americans! Jim Delligatti and Don Gorske and men like them are the heart and core of this nation. I hope Mr Trump can deliver on his promise of making America great again...God knows it's long overdue and much needed.

Back in the 1970's , I used to work at McDonald's and after ass fucking the manager I'd empty the contents of my condom into the "Secret Sauce".

We coincidentally sold a lot of Big Mac's .

They were loving it !

47 stores, he ate more than a few himself,
like some guys buy the line that they can afford a
Jimmy Johns franchise on the premise that they can feed
themselves and their families with the "mistakes" from the store.
Jim DellaStingRay experimented with Ray Krok's merchandise until
he got it just right. Also sampled a few Big Boys in his time from Eat n Park.
Then Jim has the gall to sell this concoction back to McDonald's. Wonder how
much he made off that scam. Michael Jackson's father brainwashed him into thinking
these were special round sirloins or delmonicos. Jacko smoked a few splifs, then dumped his
dad. Sly Stone had 8 of these in a weed-induced munch-a-thon on the way home from Woodstock.
The Who played their gig, got in a limo, flew back to England, and never bothered to sample our culture.

How could a big fat dago who thrived on eating shit food live that long? Most dagoes only live to around fifty due to their habit of getting into knife fights at pool halls. There's more going on here than meets the eye!
