“It’s just not fair. I really wanted a McPickle burger,” said Ima Fatkarnt (32).
With another April Fools behind us, calls have been ignited to scrap the tradition as more and more people cannot take a joke, especially after McDonalds teased a new non-existent burger – the McPickle.
Two sesame seeds buns, cheese, sauce with over 20 pickles on it, the burger duped many McDonalds fans leading to a host of comments on Twitter praising the burger.
“I can’t wait to eat this burger,” said Ima Fatkarnt (32). “I’m gunna eat 10 in a row.”
Upon leaning that it was in fact an April’s Fools joke, and a pretty obvious one at that, Ima and many online were upset that this burger wasn’t real and have signed an online petition to ban April Fools Day.
“You can’t mess with people’s appetites,” whined Ima. “I had to order 15 Quarter Pounders to get enough pickles to make my own McPickle. It’s just not fair.”
Unsure that the petition will have any impact, McDonalds fans were not the only ones who got their hopes up as people thought it was hilarious when the Morrison government debuted some of their budget ideas, only to realise they weren’t an April Fools joke, just bad policy.
