McDonald’s Food Doesn’t Break Down Over Time?

Update: Site Claims “No Animals or Insects Will Touch Them”

How to create your own Immortal Burger:

1. Buy some hamburgers from your favorite fast food restaurant: McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Burger King (any place that serves hybridized, chemicalized, genetically altered, hormone/ pesticide-laden food) – BUT DON’T EAT THEM!

2. Put your hamburgers in a fairly dry location and let them sit for many, many years.

WARNING: Do not put your hamburgers in any sealed containers, like jars. The moisture needs to escape the food naturally, so letting them breathe in the open air works best.

3. And that’s it! You are now the proud owner of your own Burger Museum! After 6 or 7 days, you can display them proudly. No animals or insects will touch them – which makes me wonder why we would ever touch them!

How about ants? Will they touch that stuff? Rodents?

Salon says, nothing to see here, move along, but I’m not so sure.

In the name of both art and science, New York photographer Sally Davies decided to buy a hamburger happy meal from McDonald’s, set it out on a table, and take a picture of it every day until it disintegrated. 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. Davies plans to keep going with the project until something happens, but she’d better be ready for a long haul: A twelve-year-old McD’s burger surfaced a few years ago looking shockingly well-preserved.

    Yeah, about 17 or so years ago I had a drywall contracting business. I hired out the hanging, and I did all the finishing and ceilings. I was the laziest person in the world, and as a result I was living paycheck to paycheck, literally. I always was cutting it close when it came to food and gas…hunger and embarrassing failure always being my motivation time-wise to finish a job. Well, one winter I had procrastinated so much I was sleeping on the job because of gas money concerns( and this was in the mid 90’s= LOSER 🙂 and I got down to the last day of ceilings and sanding. Sixteen hour day minimum. I knew I had only enough gas to make it to the bank and then to the station… but I had no food. But then I remembered, about half way thru the day, that I had a 3 week old hamburger from BK. I rushed out to my car and ate that thing with no hesitations at all. I remember it resembled a barely moist crumbling cloth in texture. It had lost most of it’s taste, but had not spoiled.

    If one really has a McD’s fix, the following link is useful:

    If you’re really desperate and psychologically affected by the preservative wrapper (or just want to fool the kids!) your average unscrupulous assistant manager will probably sell you a few on the cheap.
