That's precisely what I was expecting as well. Plus that movie takes place in Michigan so I was very intrigued to see where this was going.

I want to re-record this. His voice is so awful I can barely take it. If you're gonna talk through it at least be clear enough so we can understand you. Lyrics are pretty funny though

Or maybe you're ahead??
Nope, wait...we all lose every time Millen enters the state.
(Especially the Lions!! Zing!)

The fans. Plain and simple. I was EXTREMELY kind to them for all my life when we dominated. Since about 2010 they've been nothing but huge dicks. I'm effing sick of it and ready to unleash.

I admire that. I'm not married (anymore), no kids...so I spend my money more freely. I always say I'm gonna cut back but getting away from work at lunch is the best part of my workday.

Absolutely. I remember thinking more than $5 for lunch was ridiculous. Now I frequently spend $10-$12.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Sorry in advance for doing||
Sorry in advance for doing this, but I have an economics degree and you got me thinking.
$3 for a whopper, fry and drink sounds great, but how does it compare to today? Unfortunately, I'm not sure whether or not the offer they showed there is just the buying the Whopper combo or not (what I mean is because the modern Whopper combo is a medium fry and drink and the offer in the ad very well could have been for a Whopper and a small drink and fry) but we can do it both ways.
Assuming it IS a like for like (medium in '96 and '16), $2.99 is a GREAT deal. $2.99 in 2016 dollars is $4.55.
If the 1996 ad is offering a Whopper and small fry and drink for $2.99, the nearest offer to that that I was able to find just now is $4 for 2 bacon cheeseburgers, a small fry and drink. $4 in 2016 converted to 1996 dollars would actually be $2.63, so slightly better.
As for the gasoline, I couldn't find historical data specific to Michigan, but the annual, nationwide average cost of gas in 1996 was $1.23. Today I paid $1.95/gallon in SE Michigan. $1.23 in 1996 equates to $1.87; more or less the same.
TL;DR I'm a nerd.

Seriously? He asks not because he's not "better than that", but because it's obviously going to happen. It doesn't make him a shit fan for worrying about this.
