The McRib Is Back! Jack Osbourne Is Probably Really Excited.

McRibToday marks an important day in our nation's history.

No, forget that election stuff (well, actually, don't -- you should go vote!). We're talking about the McDonald's McRib sandwich, which is back on the menu nationwide for the first time since 1994. The BBQ sauce-slathered concoction features boneless pork pressed into a vaguely rib-like shape and topped with onions and pickles.

We know of at least one person who is genuinely psyched for the sandwich's return to McDonald's' lineup: Jack Osbourne. On his family's 2002-2005 reality series, the rock star offspring gasped when he spotted the McRib on a McD's menu. "McRib is back!"

The grainy clip is below:



Of course, we can't mention the McRib without calling out the famous 'Simpsons' spoof, a 'Requiem for a Dream' tribute featuring Krusty Burger's Ribwich. Enjoy a YouTube mashup here. And plenty of other TV shows have gotten in on the McRib appreciation action too. Most recently, Bijou Phillips' character asked for one as her last meal before being executed on 'Raising Hope.' Marshall took up smoking again on 'How I Met Your Mother' after finding out the sandwich was being discontinued, and Doug was caught in a lie when he jumped for joy after learning about the McRib's reappearance on 'King of Queens.'

Personally, as far as cult McDonald's menu items go, I'm a Shamrock Shake girl. What about you?

Be honest: Are you going to pick up a zesty McRib after voting today?
