My aunt is translator for History Channel and A&E Mundo in Latin America and because December season is coming I may have a job translating some Mindfreak episodes! woohoo! at least I didn't end up working in McDonald's as first job... but I was looking forward to having a Quarter of Pound with Cheese as a lunch at least twice a week...

Way to go, Max! Sounds great. No 'Want some fries with that' in your future.

Wohoooo way to go Max. :partyguy:

I've fried fries before, it really wasn't that bad except I got burnt a couple of times. I enjoyed it, plus I also got to cook chickens. :D

That sounds awesome! Way to go...good luck. I hope it pans out.

PS...I know it's just a translation thing, but I thought it was so cool the way you described that burger. Here, we call them QUARTER POUNDER...my son's favourite.

Anyway...let us know how it goes. CONGRATS!

Sorry :D is that here is called Cuarto de Libra con Queso. And I was too busy to look it up

Happy Meal: Cajita FelÝz (Happy little box)

Is it true that your McDonald's has Egg Burgers and Milkshakes?

Happy little box! lol. Yes...they have milkshakes. Chocolate, Raspberry and Vanilla. Then, they have seasonal ones: Green Shamrock, Orange...and I think there's another one I'm forgetting.

Oh...and yes to the egg...but not really burgers. Just egg sandwiches...for breakfast.

Thanks for the Quarter Pounder name. I'm sharing that with my son. He'll think that's so cool...

To get back on topic...
Don't forget to let us know if you get that job!

Congratulations young man. As long as you can say "this is my most dangerous stunt, ever", you can translate every episode of Mindfreak. I wish I had your job :)

Don't worry, I will keep all of you informed...!!!

The only regional variation of McDonald's I can think of is once when they served fried Yucca... darn, now I am hungry

In the east coast of Canada they serve McLobster sandwiches in the summer. (-;

Kevin, getting hungry too.
