Wubba-lubba-dub-dub, Rick and Morty season three might be right around the corner but it seems the quest for Szechuan sauce is over before it even began.
That’s right, while we’re all waiting with baited breath for Rick and Morty season three to begin, series co-creator Justin Roiland has received a rather special gift from McDonald’s, the highly coveted Szechuan sauce.
Roiland shared a picture of this amazing gift on Twitter along with a card from Mike (presumably a McDonald’s chef) who claimed he and his team found the sauce in Dimension C1998M after months of scouring the multiverse.
The card read:
We finally did it. It took months but we’ve finally brought back some Szechuan sauce.
We’ll spare you the physics, but it turns out, Dimension C1998M is a dimension where it’s always 1998 . 1998 everyday. No smartphones, no social media . it’s a weird and scary place but they’ve got Szechuan sauce on the regular menu.
So here we are with some precious cargo – the Szechuan sauce you remember and some sou-venirs from some of he dimensions we tried along the way.
We wish we could’ve brought more sauce through, but we couldn’t risk keeping a portal like that open. Think about it, if you knew in 1998 that McDonald’s would have All Day Breakfast in 2017 would you really want to stay in 1998? Of course not. If we left the portal open we’d have puka shells, bucket hats and boy bands as far as the eye could see. It’s too risky even for sauce as delicious as this.
A few lucky fans will also get to experience the glory, but the first bottle in this dimension is for you.
While it’s nice of the McDonald’s team to brave the horrors of a perpetual Nineties (God have mercy on them) we’re starting to suspect Roiland and his partner in crime Dan Harmon started Rick and Morty just to get free stuff.
So in the interests of fairness we think McDonald’s should send us a bottle as well…
We’ll find some of that Mulan Szechuan teriyaki dipping sauce, McDonald’s! Th-b-because that’s what this is all about, McDonald’s! Th-that’s our one-armed man! We’re not driven by internet traffic McDonald, we’re driven by finding that McNugget sauce!
We want that Mulan McNugget sauce, McDonalds! We want our McNugget… dipping sauce Szechuan sauce, McDonald’s!
