The McItaly Big Mac Draws the Ire of Italians

I don't know what to make of the McItaly. It seems like a tasty treat: a burger made with artichoke spread, Asiago cheese and lettuce, all grown in Italy. But Italians hate it. And if Italians hate it, I am obligated to hate it.

My semi-Italian blood is boiling right now. The McItaly is a smart marketing idea, but Italians take their food super seriously. They don't fark around when it comes to eating.

Maybe the McItaly will become a shinning symbol of Italy, like ancient Rome. Or it could go down as a big black eye, ala Mussolini. This one will be interesting to follow.
