Poor Sap Gets Rejected For Proposing to Girlfriend With McDonald's Chicken Sandwich

New, 1 comment

"You can't ask me to marry you with a chicken sandwich."


One woman was not McLoving her boyfriend's marriage proposal. According to radio station 939 MY FM, Michael Joseph took Ann, his girlfriend of two years, through McDonald's drive-thru in California earlier this week. After she received the her bag containing a Crispy Chicken Deluxe sandwich, Joseph asks her to double check to see if they held the mayo. But, instead of finding mayo, she finds a diamond ring.

Ann starts hysterically crying when Joseph asks her to marry him. Ann is speechless, but not in the way Joseph was hoping for. After getting over her shock that she was just proposed to with McDonald's, Ann tells Joseph: "You can't ask me to marry you with a chicken sandwich." Joseph explains on his YouTube page that he thought it would be a cute surprise: "She joked for months about how 10 years down the road I would probably propose to her in a chicken nugget box so I thought she would love when I surprised her this way." But he admits to the radio station that it was a "doofus move."

The couple is still together and he plans to propose to her again one day. Maybe this time he'll splash out for Pizza Hut's engagement party package. It includes a ring, a personal fireworks display, flowers, a limo, and a pizza for a mere $10,000. Who could say no to that? Watch the failed proposal below:
