Love it.

A McDonald's hamburger sits (allegedly) in someone's pocket for over a decade, and comes out looking perfect, a lot like those week-old MacFries in the Morgan Spurlock documentary SUPERSIZE ME.

And McDonalds spins it to a fare-the-well, like I would expect.

I of course could be in error but I don't see any tasteless wafer lasting that long.

I'm having trouble believing this story.
At the very least the hamburger bun would be crumbling into sand.

A ton of preservatives in the McD burgers, buns & fries, kinda worrisome really (!)

For an eye opener into the fast food culture I recommend watching the movie "Fast Food Nation".

Indeed....but for the extra bite (so to speak), I can highly recommend the book too...

I do McD's maybe once a year. I was shocked how much a Big Mac, Fries and drink costs nowadays. Not worth the price anymore.

I sometimes do burger junk food -- especially as a late night snack after a night on the town. Then it's perfect! But I do prefer Burger King over McDonald's if I can choose.

I'm with you, Thor!
The flame broiled Whopper is tastier than any McD's burgers.

The Egg McMuffin is about the only thing worth eating at McDonalds. I submit it contains the largest ratio of unprocessed food of anything on their menu.
I'll also spot you the small salad, and a single cheeseburger in a weak moment.

MCdonald's is one of the best. Ever since I was a kid that restaurant brought such joy and happiness, A lot of people pick on their food. I don't understand why. Everything they serve just hit's the mark, Could a billion people be wrong? They could, but I don't think they are. Just thinking of their cheeseburgers, French fries, shakes, makes my mouth water.

One thing you might be interested in: in the UK there's a new TV commercial for MacDonalds that uses Jerome Moross's main title from 'The Big Country' as background track.

It's good to know SOMEBODY's celebrating the centenary.

I know I ate in one once. Maybe twice.

The last time I ate in one was years ago. I was walking down a city street with a bandaged nose, where I'd broken it a few days before (yet again...). About 50 yards ahead of me was an old friend of mine, a doctor, coming in the opposite direction. He saw the bandage, and his face lit up with a look of hilarity that said, 'What has this eedyit done to himself?' We had only 20 minutes' window and decided to have lunch. Since there was a MacDonald's 10 yards away, we had little choice.

And he a medical man.

Wow! I guess that will be the last time I stick a hamburger under a heat lamp for 180 days.

Oh well, suppose I'll have to just eat the burger, let the stomach acids break it down and expel it all in just few days.

Thanks for the warning. I almost sat watching my McDonalds under glass just now.

In town, desperately hungry a few years ago. Spied a McDonalds and decided to go there even though I'd stopped using them a decade before. Maybe they'd improved. Queued for ages then waited ages for the order. Burger was cold, clammy and flat. Won't eat there again.

A billion people could indeed be wrong, and they very often are. I pity anyone who's never tasted anything better than McDonald's abysmal fries.

Hell yes!! That meal deal they do (I forget what it's called) that is clearly aimed at the late night post-pub crowd - it's perfect!! Haha

I like Burger King's better.

The only guilty pleasure from the McDonalds menu that I would get once a year or so was the Angus Burger. Now they've dropped it from their menu due to the high cost of premium beef. I've never really liked the taste of a Big Mac -- much prefer Wendy's or Burger King when the urge hits -- or burger joints like Kool Blu and Five Guys in NYC. There is a Bareburger close to my office -- I've been meaning to get a burger and fries from them to test the waters.
