McDonald’s Cult-Favorite Shamrock Shake Returns

McDonald’s bright-green Shamrock Shake, a minty beverage only available around St. Patrick’s Day each year, has a cult following that rivals that of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” and short-lived TV series “Firefly” (though possibly not McDonald’s other fan-favorite seasonal menu item, the McRib).

I've come up with my most recent list of the top ten celebrity dinner companions.  Dr. Billy Graham kicks it all off by saying grace before the meal and Oprah is there because she helped me arrange it all and furnished the gift bags.   Dr. Phil has joined us in case any of the guests need intervention.  And for humor, I'd ask that Dan Ackroyd and Betty White attend.  Hugh Grant should be there, just, er, uh,  because.  The wonderfully talented Dolly Parton could team up with Stevie Wonder and Ringo Starr for a little after dinner entertainment.   More after the jump.
