Top five things we love about the Egg McMuffin

Happy fortieth birthday, Egg McMuffin! McDonald's signature breakfast sandwich hasn't changed a bit over the past four decades -- unless you listen to fast-food conspiracy theorists who gas on about how the portion sizes have been systematically decreased by a pinch every so often. The 40-year-old McMuffin is still America's favorite drive-thru breakfast, a wondrous combo of toasted English muffins, egg, Canadian bacon, margarine and melted American cheese.

To celebrate the Egg McMuffin's big birthday, we could take it to a strip club, get it wasted on well vodka and dare it to pee in a public park, or just give you our list of the top five things we love about it -- with no rotten hangovers and no criminal charges.
