I have been CHALLENGED!

"Legal C", as I shall call her, has decided to CHALLENGE me to keep a happy meal in my closet for a year because this is the internet and people just make stuff up or something. I guess I can make room for this as long as I can keep it in a tupperware and dont have to smell it for the first week.

Legal C is a lawyer so she has to challenge these things by nature. Legal C also gladly feeds her kids McGarbage. Here is an official position from Legal C on the benefits of McDonalds in a child's diet:

"Aside from that, children need a high fat diet to properly grow and that includes 25% of their fat intake being saturated. ... See MoreThe bulk of the grease in a McDonald's meal comes from the fries which are being made in vegetable oils which do not contain cholesterol since it only comes from animal fats."

In case anyone is as skeptical as she is here is another article on the fine art of aging McGarbage....

12-Year Old McDonald's Hamburger, Still Looking GoodPosted by Robyn Lee, September 25, 2008 at 4:30 PM

The McDonald's hamburger on the right is from 2008; the one on the left is from 1996. And they both look fairly edible.

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 and bit and having "the oddest smell," it apparently hasn't changed much in the past 12 years.

This isn't the first time someone kept an uneaten McDonald's hamburger for an extended period of time for the sake of science. Or in the case of the Bionic Burger Museum, multiple burgers for over 19 years. There are even instructions on how to start your own collection of old, self-preserving burgers.

Anyone else have experience with Fast Food That Just Won't Rot?
