A moment of silence, for a culinary giant. One of the most iconic food items in the fast food/restaurant industry.

When I was young I disliked Big Mac's, but have grown fond of them through the years.

Inventor of the Big Mac dies, aged 98 - BBC Newsbeat

Quote:
In 1967, Michael "Jim" Delligatti came up with the formula of having two lots of everything - beef patties, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions and special sauce - in one burger.
He was one of the company's first franchisees, running stores in the US in the 1950s.
McDonald's has described him as a "legendary" person, who "made a lasting impression on our brand".

He was 98 when he died. Obviously he didn't eat his own food "inventions".

I worked at McDonald's when the Big Mac was first introduced. We were told to take bags of them to our friends, I think they were around 49 cents or so and a LOT bigger and tastier than they are now.
