When Jonathan Kehoe of Wisconsin ordered his McRib Value meal, he had no idea that his order was about to change his life!
The unemployed man’s McRib craving translated into something much bigger than his appetite. Kehoe’s Boardwalk and Park Place Monopoly pieces from his meal translated into $1 million smackaroos, making him the game’s only grand prize winner in both the United States and Canada.
… and just in time for Christmas!!
Like many Americans, Kehoe was down on his luck. He had been out of work for 18 months and was running out of options. McDonald’s was just about the only thing he could afford and I’m betting he’s praising the McRib right now as I type.
Kehoe, who has been living with his parents since losing his job, plans to do the sensible things like pay off his car and pay back his parents with the money, but he admits he may splurge on one thing:
“I was thinking maybe a McRib tattoo or something.”
Let’s hope that’s a joke…
