Well I have never had a Quarter Pounder or a Big mac, but I voted QP because of the extra meat and greasy feel it apparently has. I like that sort of food, and believe it is good for me, so have no problem with eating it.

Both give me noxious diarrhea. Therefore, the Quarter Pounder.

Meh. My typical McDonald's order is a McChicken and a double cheeseburger with extra pickles.

Same, although I sub the McChicken with a Poulet Jr. (Which translates to Junior Chicken here, but I don't know how available these things are. They're small cheeseburger buns-mayonnaise-lettuce-fried chicken with a bit of kick chicken burgers.

Precisely what the McChicken is, basically, yeah.

If that's true, Canada needs to step the fuck off before we invade them for trying to out-America us.

And it's still nicer to eat than the Quarter Pounder.

Do you guys seriously not have these? I eat those every time I go! Ha!

And the Jr. Chicken and the McChicken are intellectually distinct sandwiches. The McChicken is the old women version of the Jr. Chicken.

Edit:

We also have these:

Double edit:

AHA!
The current McChicken sandwich recipe is somewhat spicier than the original. Additionally, in the United States, the sandwich is somewhat smaller than it was previously, as it is now on the Dollar Menu, which offers various food products for the price of US$1.00. In Canada, with McChicken still its original size, the one on its value menu ("Value Picks") is called Junior Chicken and is sold at $1.39 CAN.

Which are both near infallible sources. My bad, I could have sworn I hate a double big mac before. Maybe we used to.

We generally don't have them in Australia either, however there was a recent special which came in about a week or two after all the Rosti stuff, one of which was a double big mac. So good, but so over priced. :/

At the moment, when I go to McDonalds, it's a McChicken and a Thickshake for me. I usually go Vanilla, but every now and then get a strawberry because it is sublime as contrast, and also because fuck chocolate.

Oh, and there is a new Caramal Thickshake here. Jizz. Everywhere.

I approach McDonalds with the "divide and conquer" mentality. A dollar for a double cheeseburger? I'll have four please.

So is the Canada McChicken a full-size burger like the two listed in this poll--as it is in Australie--or is it still a bit smaller?

A fullsize burger? It's no Quarter Pounder, to be certain; but it has it's own trio and is larger than the American one.

I do not know what a quarter pounder, but few burgers beat the big mac.

The only ones who do are the

I prefer the McGangBang: A McChicken inside of a Mcdouble. For $2 you get a burger that can contend with any other $3-$4 burger.

My two friends would often have "Seventh Heaven" contests. They'd each buy seven Fillet-o-Fish and eat them, and the one who finished last had to pay. I love my friends.

Oh, and I've never liked the Big Mac, probably because of the extra bun. Double Quarter Pounders all the way. (I can seriously go beast on those McNuggets though. McDonald's had a 50 piece meal deal for $20, and my petite female friend and I could eat the entire meal in one sitting. Oh, now I feel fat.)
