Man keeps McDonald's burger for 14 years, for some reason

24 April 2013

A lunatic called David Whipple has kept a McDonald's burger for 14 years.

The 63-year-old said: "It sat in my coat pocket for a year or two after it sat in my truck. When we discovered it, we were like, 'Oh my gosh, I can't believe it looks the same way!'"

The burger showed no signs of mould, but was solid as a rock. Other than that, it was ostensibly preserved. Of course, boohooing foodies will see this as a beacon to why fast food is so awful, but obviously, this is a miracle of modern food science. Apart from the disintergrated pickle.

    The burger has nothing to do with preservatives, it is just dried out. It's the same principle as beef jerky ... if there's no moisture you won't get mould. It's the same with the bun. If you leave a slice of bread out it'll just go stale and hard, whereas if you leave it in a bag it'll go mouldy because the moisture can't escape.

    If bacteria dont want it, why do people eat it?!

    I can't believe that the first post explained perfectly why it didn't rot and the 2nd post is some dunce who can't read! Also those "Dr's" are pretty shit at their job's if they didn't know straight away why it didn't rot.

    disintegrated should only have one "r" (sigh). PS, this is OLD news, this burger was a news feature over a year ago.
