Gather 'round children, and ye shall here, of a quest for ribs that took many a year;
Ten grand was offered, a mighty big prize, and every last cent is now Sawyer Frye's.
Yes, folks, the grand-prize winner of McDonald's Legends of McRib Contest, a young North Carolina native, concocted a video tale about the last McRib on earth. (Apparently the sandwich's popularity resulted in all but one of the meaty marvels being eaten before the EPA had a chance to add it to the endangered-edibles list), which took him from Central America to a forest in Canada where the croque McRib in question lay buried (either frozen, we hope, or shot through with enough trans fats to keep it preserved and still tasty).
Frye also won a trip to Germany, the only country in the world where the McRib is served year-round. Try it with a side of McKartoffelsalat and a McWeisswürst. (McDonald's, we thought of it first!) See the video after the jump.
