Craving McDonald’s and willing to spend $141.33? A McEverything it is - and a Diet Coke to wash it all down.

Nick Chipman, who blogs at, purchased one of every breakfast and lunch sandwich at a McDonald’s in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, to make a “McEverything.”

“Obviously, everything at McDonalds starts with a 'Mc,'” as Chipman said. The number one thing on the 32-year-old’s list of life goals was to make this monstrous sandwich.

“I have kind of a weird bucket list. Most people are like, ‘Hey, I want to go skydiving.’ Mine was like, ‘Hey, I want to make a McEverything,” said Chipman.

The workers at the McDonald’s franchise were not at all upset by Chipman’s large order, but rather shocked. “They were like, are you seriously going to eat all this?" Chipman said.

However, his family wasn’t at all surprised. “They are kind of used to my ridiculous food creations by now,” Chipman admitted.

To make the McEverything, Chipman used “lots and lots of bamboo skewers” to keep the gigantic sandwich together. Then he disassembled it and filled up his fridge with enough sandwiches for about another three days.

When asked about director Morgan Spurlock’s film "Super Size Me" which shows a man following a McDonald’s diet for a month, Chipman said, “That documentary had an adverse effect on me. It doesn’t affect me the way that everyone else I know got affected by it.”

Instead, he craved food from McDonald's.

Of his idea, Chipman said, “People either think it’s hilarious or hate it.” He added, “It is the same as going to the grocery store and buying food for seven days.”

Thankfully, Chipman doesn’t have to worry too much about a gym membership after finishing the McEverything. “The owner of the place where my wife works pays for (the employees') gym memberships and he pays for mine too. He just assumed, ‘Hey, you need to go to the gym.'”

What else in on his bucket list? About fifty other food items. “I think my next plan is to make some custom giant tortilla. Get one of everything at Taco Bell and make a giant burrito; wrap everything up in a tortilla,” Chipman said.

And for the record, no, he did not order fries with his McEverything.

      Often people forget that with there being multiple news outlets all covering the large stories, it is the small stories that bring viewers in. I would be willing to venture a guess that most of the people that read this particular article would not otherwise watch CNN or the news at that. So please (and this goes for everyone commenting) I implore you to stop pretending you are any kind of judge as to what is news worthy, it's tiresome to sift through the garbage just to find a meaningful comment.

      He ordered breakfast sandwiches in the morning, set them aside and waited for the afternoon to roll in, then bought the afternoon sandwiches 9_9 #DURR #MURRICA

        Maybe, just maybe, he showed up 30 minutes before the switch to lunch to give the employees enough time to prepare the breakfast portion of the order...

    The most puzzling question to me is, how did he get an Egg McMuffin and a Cheeseburger at the same time? They stop serving breakfast at 10:30?

    September 19, 2013 at 5:56 pm |
    • stefanielynn

      Maybe he went at 10, and go the breakfast and ordered lunch too because by the time they had everything ready lunch was already starting to be served.

      September 19, 2013 at 6:04 pm |
    • Fred Evil

      Start ordering at 10:29, get through your breakfast portion, and then stand there saying, "Ummm......uuuuhhhhh......hmmmm" for 60 seconds?

      September 19, 2013 at 6:04 pm |
    • JamesT

      Back when McDonald's made everything "fresh" and only held it for 10 minutes (except the McRibs in the sauce and McNuggets in the cabinet) it was difficult to get everything at one time. (Yes, I know that the 10 minute hold time was widely abused but it was the rules).
      Now they precook almost everything, assemble then (shudder) microwave it before sending it out everything ready to go at transition time with plenty of leftovers.
      I worked for McD's in the 80's and we weren't allowed to have a microwave anywhere in the store, including the breakroom. They didn't want any possibility that crew would microwave food past it's hold time.

      September 19, 2013 at 6:15 pm |
      • danger carlos

        I think you have it wrong. They may not have had a microwave but they did premake stuff WELL in advance and put it on the food slider in big stacks. You used to not even be able to customize your order because ALL food was premade, hence Burger King coming up with the "have it your way" campaign. McDonalds and every other place makes everything to order now with the exception of the burger patties, which they keep in a warmer, ever since the late 90's Ive noticed a big increase in freshness and those food slides are now used for individual orders instead of holding 20 identical cheeseburgers that sit there for god knows how long.

        September 19, 2013 at 6:40 pm |
        • Trevor

          You are correct. I work there now, and we pre-cook all the meats and keep them in a holding tray (each having a maximum hold time before they are wasted) and assemble everything to order. Buns aren't even touched till an order comes in. There is a microwave, but it's only used for breakfast burritos, hotcakes, and the like.
          If any company pre-assembled and held sandwiches, or even just held the meats for as long a people think mcdonald's does, it would be shut down immediately for violating health codes.

    So really it's just newsworthy because he bought it all at once? Because he didn't eat it all at once and those sandwiches in the fridge looked like they were in their original wrappers. Dummmmmmmb.

    It would have been interesting–well, more so–if he'd actually made one giant sandwich with every available ingredient on it, but just buying one of each sandwich and skewering them together as still individual sandwiches...meh.
