First appearing on The John Byner Comedy Hour before becoming a regular character on shows like Van Dyke and Company, Bizarre, and his own show, Super Dave Osborne was an Evel Knievel parody played by longtime comedian Bob Einstein.

If you love McDonald's, you're not alone; according to Wikipedia, McDonald's operates almost 40,000 stores in more than 120 countries. When you've got a hankering for a Big Mac, you'll likely be able to walk down the street to get your meal instead of driving to the next town over.With how popular the fast-food chain has become, it's no wonder that their prices have steadily risen since the 90s.
