Encasing a McRib in Resin?

I have strange friends. One of these brilliant and lovable chuckleheads is John Graziano. He has a YouTube channel, called Graz Makes (where he doesn’t post nearly enough videos). He also has a day job working at Narwhal Labs, the makerspace associated with the marine (and resin) supply company, Total Boat.

In this Narwhal Labs video, John tries to preserve his crazy kinda love for that illusive of pressed meat wonders, the McDonald’s McRib. Since Mickey D likes to tease its customers by keeping the McRib as an on-again/off-again offering, Graz decided to suspend a rib in the spacetime continuum by encasing it in resin. Good thing, too, ’cause when they go to pick up an order to resin-ate, they get the last batch before that tyrant McDonald threw the off-again switch. Damn you, Ronald!

BTW: Have others noticed that TotalBoat has suddenly become the go-resin in the maker community? It seems like every video I watch, if resin is involved, out comes the TotalBoat. Interesting how that happens.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. I’m pretty sure at least some of the Total Boat appearances are paid product placement. I know Evan and Katelyn are paid for it, they put a disclaimer on screen for the past month or two when they use it.
