Where were you when Frank Ocean's Blonde dropped on Saturday? Pregaming? Or already so faded you were chowing down on an egg sandwich with the hash brown tucked into it at McDonald's, coincidentally the subject of a poem Kanye West wrote for the latest issue of Ocean's zine Boys Don't Cry?

Titled "The Mcdonald's Man," the new literary classic personifies fast food items to tell a tale of deception, paranoia, and the rarity of the McRib. (Summary: Potatoes are shifty, but all the other foods want to be them, except maybe the apple pie.)
