The approaching winter can mean only one thing: the return of McRib season at McDonald's! And just in time for this most sacred of food observances, a redditor shared the above photo of a pre-cooked McRib...patty? Is it lunchtime yet?

The photo apparently shows "raw McRib meat" and, judging by the boxes in the back, it's safe to say we're looking at Le McRib Canadien. Wonder if they use the same ratio of "restructured meat product" to "scalded pig stomach" up north? Waste not want not!

Ultimately, this frozen pig sponge gets dressed up in barbecue sauce and sandwiched inside a cornmeal bun for 500 calories and 980 milligrams of sodium for your digestive pleasure. If you've still got the stomach for it—ho HO!—the McPopsicle should return to your local Mickey D's in the next few weeks.
