Sorry, Michigan, not this time.

There is no fast food item more polarizing than the McDonald's McRib sandwich, right? Either you love it and you're here wondering why the hell we can't get it in Michigan right now, or you hate it ... and well, you probably stopped reading already.

The McRib is making a limited-time appearance during the months of October, November, and December of this year.

But according to the McRib Locator -- yes there's a webpage dedicated to finding the sometimes-elusive sandwich -- Michigan is listed as "Not as likely to have the McRib."

I asked my son who is a McDonald's employee to keep me in the loop if he gets word that the sandwich may be making a return to Michigan. But he'll be sworn to secrecy. Grrr.
