The McDonald's hamburger* that wouldn't die


One of the two McDonald's hamburgers above dates from 1996 while the other is this year's model — can you tell which is which?

Robyn Lee's short blog post shorter: "Wellness educator and nutrition consultant Karen Hanrahan has kept a McDonald's hamburger since 1996 to illustrate its nonexistent ability to decay. Aside from drying out a bit and having 'the oddest smell,' it apparently hasn't changed much in the past 12 years."

You could look it up.

I'm not surprised.
Once I was cleaning out the car I had before the car I have now, and I found a McDonald's french fry container, with two fries in it, under one of the seats. (The car was 13 years old at the time; I keep a car for a LOOOONG time.) I know for a fact that those fries dated back ten years at least, since I'd given fries up completely after I'd had the vehicle only a couple years (I've since resumed), and I would never let anybody else eat in my car because I was ("was") such a fussbudget. Anyway, the fries looked brand spanking new -- no bug damage, no mold, almost no dessication, just a little overly firm -- and, I et them. Don't be so high and mighty, they looked pretty good. Anyhow I'm still here, but it could be what's wrong with me, in general.
