Twoallbeefpattiesspecialsaucelettucecheesepicklesonionsonasesameseedbun is a trademarked slogan used by McDonald's in 1975. The phrase is a somewhat non-sensical word, probably made up for the company by an advertising agency, a compound of the phrase "Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun", which is the ingredient listing for its Big Mac sandwiches.

In 2003, the phrase was revived, both in advertising and licensed product. In an English-language ad for McDonald's international "i'm lovin' it" campaign that used hip-hop music, a rapper rapidly spouts off the trademark, in the background of the song. Also that year, American Greetings and Carlton Cards released a Christmas ornament of a Big Mac, on which the phrase twoallbeefpattiesspecialsaucelettucecheesepicklesonionsonasesameseedbun was printed.

The word is 71 characters long; had it not been made up for corporate promotion, or even etymologically consistent with most of the English language, it could be a candidate for the longest word in the English language.
