The legendary McRib, back in the UK after 12 years

Today, the last day of 2014, a burger that some only consider a myth returned in it's apparent glory to McDonalds stores across the UK. The reformed pork sandwich known only as the McRib. This burger is a cultural phenomena, everyone knows the story even if they've never had one of these burgers grace their lips. It's even had an entire Simpsons episode tributing it. The McRib first came to the UK back in 1998 and according to the SMS I received from McDonalds this morning it's not been seen here for 12 years. I missed my opportunity to have one of these in Spain a few years ago, so I simply couldn't pass up the chance now.

Doctor Who Christmas Special 2014 Review: Last Christmas

Honestly, I was extremely disappointed with this one. After one of the strongest series so far, I feel we were really let down with the Christmas episode this year and it wasn't even christmasy enough to give it the benefit of the doubt. They had a great actor to play Santa I admit, but never gave him good enough writing to actually shine. He said too many -weird things- that felt out of character and forced to be relatable to todays kids, but failed to achieve that sort of "out of touch middle age man who's trying to impress his kids" feel that would have been at least comedic.

There was some decent comedy here and there, but not enough and really it wasn't strong enough to really make me laugh. Really going into the episode there was some good horror moments and it maintained the classic WHO feel we've had throughout Capaldi's run so far. Which is fab, but really the story just wasn't good enough to live up to this.

Five Nights at Five Guys

New idea for the next fad video game, Five Nights at Five Guys. You play as a morbidly obese security guard, which is surprise-surprise the reason why you're bound to your chair. You've recently started working for everyones favourite fast food chain Five Guys near the Rockafella Center.  Some say there will one day be a mobility scooter available as DLC, but it is yet to be confirmed.

Your job is to try and not have a heart attack whilst you eat your own weight in burgers.

Some say the building is haunted by children who were murdered by a previous employee who held a grudge against the Five Guys founders, who if you didn't know, are five guys. Barry Goldsmith, Garold Fitzpatrick, Robert Humberbatch, David Attenborough and everyones favourite guy, the drummer from the Beetles.

The murderer was a fat guy, just like the player so the ghosts are taking their microaggressions out on you. They come out during the night with sheets over their heads and tell you how much of an awful person you are and how what you are doing is selfish and that you should think about all the starving children in Africa and other places where Americans don't dare think of.

Honestly this game must be worth at least five stars and will surely spark a fandom and have many many sequels. All while getting kids to eat more Five Guys burgers. Everyones happy.
