And he definitely wants fries with that.
In the hubbub of Frank Ocean's mega-release weekend (the Odd Future-affiliate dropped two albums, Endless and Blonde, in two days), one secondary work of art failed to fall through the cracks of our consciousness: The McDonald's Man, Kanye's ode to fast food printed in Frank Ocean's limited-edition promotional zine. The self-described poem pits McDonald's menu items against each other like a modern day Animal Farm, with the coveted French fries facing salty hatred from the likes of the McNuggets and McRib simply for having possessed a plan (to smell good?). We don't fully get it quite yet, but the Internet seems to be enjoying itself - the contemporary benchmark of worthwhile content.

As any respectable corporate entity ought to behave, McDonald's official Twitter account responded to said poem with a reference to Kanye's controversial anthem Famous, fashioning themselves as the Taylor Swift of this situation. (We're looking forward to a snapchat leak of Kanye asking Ronald McDonald for permission before unleashing his French fries opus on the world.) Like most great pieces of art, only once the dust of hype dies down will the complex truth of The McDonald's Man begin to be untangled. Until then, we look forward to more rowdy rollicking twitter banter.
