// This episode of Dear Asian Americans is brought to you by the Quarter Pounder with Cheese from McDonalds.

It's QPC time. Did your mouth just water?

The QPC is the burger that breaks the norms of etiquette, the burger that napkins were made for, the burger that's saucy, drippy, oozing with flavor, always cooked when you order.

So the next time you want a mouth-watering burger, order the QPC from McDonalds.
