"The lady will have a Big Mac."

McDonald's has been going through a tough time, recently. Globally it seems like people are realizing that heavily processed fast food rich in fats and sugars might not be the best bet for a long and happy life.

So, the giant chain has gone back to the drawing board with random things like a new hamburglar and this latest ploy to get some golden arches fans in Sweden.

At a few locations, McDonald's will try taking reservations for tables and having a wait staff to take orders. This according to Yahoo News:

Burger lovers can book a table online at a Swedish website that offers that service for many restaurants -- in many price ranges -- around the country. The McDonald's customer will have to order at least two items from the menu for one to four people.

The home of the Big Mac is testing reservations and table service in a country that has been a difficult market. McDonald's has faced fierce competition there from US rival Burger King and Swedish chain Max.

But this latest experiment seems to undermine the whole idea of fast food.

"It's innovative but at the same time it's going backwards in the world of the restaurant industry," where the concept of fast food was invented in the 1950s, said Nicolas Nouchi, analyst at CHD Expert.

We can't really imagine what it would be like to sit at a table and have some poor person take your order for chicken nuggets and a large fry. But Swedes love competent service from all food vendors.

McDonald's should just tell Sweden about the secret menu, including the unfortunately-named McGangBang.

What began as an innocent AMA on reddit became a treasure trove of secrets.

Redditor u/orchidhibiscus, who seems to have since deleted his account, claimed to be a manager at a UK McDonalds and set out to answer some questions people had about fast food production.

Then someone dropped the big question:

If you are unaware, the idea of the secret menu was popularized by the west coast burger chain In-N-Out. They have a slew of items that can be made from mixing and matching other items on the existing menu and just decided to go ahead and let it be its own thing.

In that particular AMA, only two of those items were defined. Users seemed to agree that the Land, Air, and Sea burger probably consisted of beef, chicken and fish patties. And the McGangbang is not just a classy name, rather it's a Jr. Chicken sandwich encased within a double cheezeburger.

For their part, McDonald's answers the secret menu question on their website.

We have no secret menu — or do we?

Actually, our customers are pretty clever when it comes to customizing their orders with our menu items, so you may have seen some of their creations online. But we have no official secret menu of our own.

Well, tell that to their customers or the websites set up to describe McDonald's secret menu.

Or, you can do one better and watch some video reviews of those items off a menu that 'doesn't exist'.

This guy goes after that elusive McGangbang and finds the sandwich has a lot more taste than the name.

WARNING: Lots of censored bodies and insanity in this video.

UPDATE: This is the story that keeps on giving. Allegedly the woman in question, Sandra Suarez, went off in that fast food restaurant after an employee of the establishment "turned down her offer of oral sex in the parking lot."

America the beautiful, y'all.
