McDonald's Annoys Burger Lovers With 'Cruel' April Fools' Day Prank

McDonald's has left some fans disappointed with its April Fools' Day prank, but others are just glad it wasn't true.

The fast-chain claimed it was getting ready to release a new burger - The McPickle

The company's Australian social media accounts posted a short video of the new burger, a Big Mac style but with piles of gherkins instead of meat.

The caption read: "Pickle lovers, it's the news you've all been waiting for. "We're super stoked to announce the launch of our brand new McPickle Burger.


"It's time to tuck into juicy, flavoursome pickles layered between melted cheese, ketchup sauce and toasted sesame seed buns.

"It's sure to be a treat for all your senses."

Fans were really excited about the new burger and couldn't wait to try it.

One wrote: "I'm going to order 1000."

Another added: "I cannot wait to get one."

McDonald's later commented: "Available until yesterday" and people started to clock something wasn't quite right.

One wrote: "Oh s*** it's April 1st..."

Another commented: "Omfg if this is april fools joke imma be mad."

A fan added: "Cruel this isn't real."

Others demanded McDonald's actually add it to their menu, with one writing "Make it real" and another adding "I really wish this wasn't an April Fool's joke".

But other non-gherkin lovers were glad to learn it wasn't real.

One man wrote: "I'm glad this is April fool because I threw up a little when I saw it at first.

Another commented: "Even though this is fake it's still disgusting."

Seeing all the disappointment, one man suggested an alternative.

He wrote: "If you really really want one just buy a cheeseburger and ask for a billion extra pickles."

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
