In response to pressure by fans, fast-food giant McDonald’s will revamp its ‘Broncos Burger,’ with the patties to be made entirely of ground horse meat.
Brisbane Broncos fans are famously passionate about their team, and about their sport, but so far, McDonald’s have struggled to make them passionate about a burger which is effectively a Quarter Pounder with some lettuce (and a hefty price tag!). But in a bold strategy, the beef patty will be replaced with one exclusively made from ‘broncos’ – wild horses, captured by Ronald McDonald, and cooked into a 250g patty.
McDonald’s marketing coordinator, Johnald McDonald, is enthusiastically promoting the change. ‘We know how much NRL fans love to support their teams both on, and off, the field, so in recognition of this, we are releasing this unique, signature burgers.’
Excitingly, the plan will not stop merely at ‘Broncos Burgers.’ According to Johnald, ‘…each club will have its own unique burger, relevant to the club’s history and mascot.’
The proposed ‘expansion range’ of burgers will include a chicken burger in Bondi, a shark burger in Cronulla, and a burger made from the meat of supple, strong jackaroos across country Queensland, for the Cowboys. Whilst some have suggested McDonald’s should not murder jackaroos for the purpose of a limited-time burger, those suggestions have been shot down, along with the people who made them.
Unfortunately, as they are rarely found in the wild, McDonald’s has suffered a tougher time in trying to source the meat for both Newcastle Knights, and Gold Coast Titans, burgers. Although, no-one is really a fan of the Titans, so we highly doubt McDonald’s will be too stressed.
