McDonald's Cuts the Cheese, Ups Their Prices

Screw the auto industry -- save the McDonald's dollar menu!

The economy's first food industry casualty is upon us, as McDonald's is upping the price of its deliciously disgusting double cheeseburger to a whopping $1.19 -- and they're replacing it with the "McDouble," which is a double burger with half the cheese.

The price hike starts in December ... there are dark, dark times ahead, people.
