Spoiler Alert: Its only fitting that Mikey wins the ‘Redemption Round’ as he has used mercy to redeem himself on more than one occasion.
To be clear, this is not to be confused with Mikeys redemption from taking us to the Polar Palace (which was closed for the season) or the time that he felt too ill from the Rita challenge to eat his milkshake, so was granted a one day extension on the shake. Further, it should not be confused with the Shamrock shake chosen that next day which tasted like an old chalky mint from Grandmas pocket (not YOUR grandma, someone else grandma who also keeps an often used handkerchief in that same pocket). The Shamrock was tossed and Mikey was granted a mulligan as we headed back to McDonalds for a chocolate shake.
To be fair: He’s proved to be the King of Redemption and has earned the crown this round.
I’m not saying that I waved the white flag, but the 5.5 point improvement in Mikeys choice of Carl’s Jr. was a massive undertaking. So I decided that if I was going down, it would be with a delicious burger and shake in my belly!
The Wendy’s Baconator scored well the first round and didn’t really need redemption.
Juicy double patty, bacon, cheese – no brainer: delicious.
The BK Shake is where I was looking for redemption. When we went the first time, the choice to not order a chocolate shake was a grave mistake. You will be hard pressed to find a drive through establishment that serves up a more delicious and thick chocolate milkshake.
We dined in this time to take in the ambience of the Kings lair. To soak in the smell of whopper sauce and onions and to allow Danny Y to negotiate, face to face, with our server.
Danny Y: Can I mix Oreo and Chocolate together in a milkshake?
Danny Y (with a whimper and single tear rolling down his cheek): You can’t use the chocolate shake to make my Oreo milkshake instead of Vanilla?
She made him a pity shake, which he was not too proud to accept.
It was an improvement from the first round, the rankings improved slightly but Mikey was nervous about securing his pending victory and may have underrated the thickness (in my opinion). A little like the basehead from Menace II Society who had them cheeseburgers. We all remember what lengths he was willing to go to…
All in all, a good round with entertaining banter and delicious burgers and shakes all around.
Good choice on redemption round Danny Y, and a tip of the hat to Mikey on the victory!
