McDonald's prodigal sandwich has returned!

Yes, The McRib is back and don't think the internet hasn't noticed. Pictures of the fast food restaurant's seasonal barbecue sauce-slathered pork sandwich started springing up all over Twitter earlier this week.

JD Harmeyer, on the other hand, has gone quite a few years without indulging. "I liked them as a kid," he said. "But haven't had one in a long time."
