Uh-oh, fellow cash-poor lovers of fat-rich breakfast foods, I have some upsetting news: the price of brekky gold bullion, a.k.a. Maccas hash browns, has just gone up.
In a devastating blow to those among us who deeply value the victory that comes with buying a piping hot golden nugget of salty satisfaction using just the change scrounged from the sticky footwell of your 2001 Toyota Carina, the Daily Telegraph has reported that the price of hash browns has leapt a full 25c, from $1.95 to $2.20.
The punters… they are not happy.
That’s a lot of fury over 25c. And sure, many people have raised the valid point that Hungry Jack‘s sell their hash browns for a mere buck. Counterpoint, though: those rancid cardboard-brown Hungry Jack’s hash browns are a cruel mockery of what a hash brown should be – pale gold, tongue-destroyingly hot, fluffy as a cloud, and packed in one of those flimsy paper buckets with the golden arches printed on ’em.
I can’t stay mad at you, Maccas hash browns. I will scrounge the 25c. You can’t put a price on brekky perfection.
