when you spend 20 minutes shoveling your sidewalk to get to your driveway, another 15 shoveling just around your Jeep, about 20 clearing off the Jeep while its warming up, and 5 cleaning up the area around the Jeep you foolishly shoveled before cleaning off the Jeep... just so you can pick up 2 Shamrock shakes at McDonald's :cool:

Hey, McDonald's has some pretty good shakes! Though my wife tried the ones at Carl's Jr. and said she likes them even more!

We don't have Carl's here, but we do have one of their Hardee's just a few blocks down the road. I like their burger that has the potato chips, hotdog, and I want to say O-rings on it. My daughter prefers their shakes, I prefer their ice cream cones :)

Ha, see, we don't have Hardee's here!

Five Guys has good shakes too!

My wife had one with caramel, peanut butter, and bacon! Apparently she loved it.

This is so true. Amazing how all you have to do is add bacon to a cheeseburger and it automatically just became fifteen times better.
Do they have Wendy's out your way? I love their Baconator sandwich. Bacon, cheese, meat, bacon, cheese, meat, bacon, cheese. Its almost perfect.
