Has McDonald's unlocked the secret of immortality?

Happy-meal-day-day-126

New York photographer Sally Davies decided to buy a McDonald's Happy Meal, put it on a table, and photograph it every day until it disintegrated.

Don't hold your breath.

According to an August 26, 2010 post on Grub Street, "That was 137 days ago and the end is nowhere near: the fries look as fresh as the day they came out of the fryer and the burger — minus a little patty shrinkage — is virtually unchanged."

The ruthdfw Daily on Twitter

Dfghj

I have no idea how I happened on The ruthdfw Daily.

It looks like one of those do-it-yourself personal newspapers anyone can create and then have automatically sent to whomever you select.

Huh.

Old blogs in new bottles?

Or something else?

You decide.
