Every man dreams of one day achieving something great.
For Nick Chipman of Milwaukee, Wisc., he wanted achieve not just one great thing, but everything -- the McEverything.
On Monday, Chipman rolled up to the McDonald’s branch located on 66th and North Avenue in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, 30 minutes before the end of breakfast service to be sure the kitchen was fully stocked, and literally ordered every sandwich on the menu.
The grand total for his epic order of 43 sandwiches came to $143 – and with that hefty price tag came the completion of a dream.
“The number one thing on my list for two or three years now has been to make this sandwich, which I’ve dubbed the McEverything,” Chipman wrote on his blog Dude Foods.
“Now, I know that some of you are probably reading this right now and thinking to yourself ‘Man, what kind of idiot spends $143 on 43 McDonald’s sandwiches?’” He wrote. “The way I see it though is that with all the leftovers I have I’ve got all my breakfasts, lunches and dinners covered for the next week or so!”
After ordering all 43 sandwiches, Chipman went on the stack them all together using bamboo skewers. The result was a sandwich taller than most five-year-old children.
"I originally anticipated it only being a couple of feet high, but as you can see from the pictures it ended up MUCH taller than that," Chipman wrote.
The hardest part of challenge? Chipman confessed that the most difficult thing was holding off from eating all the food he ordered.
"I'm a total sucker for McDonald’s sandwiches, especially their McGriddles," he added.
Chipman has garnered some attention for other weird creations, which he has posted on his blog. They include dishes like Waffle-Wrapped Bacon Chicken Wings, Sweet & Sour Chicken in a Wonton Cone and an Inside-Out Grilled Cheese Sandwich.
After this ambitious feat, it’s hard to imagine what Chipman will think of next.
