First Of All, Matt, That’s Not An Egg McMuffin…
…it’s a Sausage McMuffin with Egg. And yes indeed it is the pinnacle of all breakfast sandwiches, delicious and filling with a surprisingly low calorie count although if that’s a relief to you perhaps you’ll want to skip over the fat, sodium, and cholesterol content. I’d probably be at substantially greater risk for a premature heart attack if my local Scottish Restaurant offered breakfast all day.
With that said, Matt Yglesias is probably going a bridge too far here.
