Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime...
But sometimes, you just gotta give the guy the friggin' fish.

Yes, he's dead, but doesn't he look great?

A Utah man says he has a McDonald's hamburger he bought 14 years ago, and it looks the same as it did the day he bought it.

All-beef time warp

David Whipple of St. George, Utah, said he bought the hamburger, topped with a pickle, mustard and ketchup, on July 7, 1999, put the burger in his jacket pocket, discovered it a few years later, and still has it. He says that to this day, it shows no signs of mold, fungus or even a strange odor. The only thing that has changed over the years is that the pickle has disintegrated. He went on to state, "The fact that it has not decomposed shows you how unhealthy it is for children."

But I'm calling B.S. on this story for several reasons: First, if the pickle disintegrated, it would have had to decompose to do that, and I can't believe it did that without creating an odor. Also, the hamburger bun is just bread, even if it's got preservatives in it, all bread goes bad and turns green after a few months.

Most of all, why is eating preservatives that would keep a burger undecomposed for 14 years necessarily a bad thing? Wouldn't it do the same thing for our body, slowing down the aging process and allowing us to live longer?

Coincidentally, McDonald's has also been in the news recently for another reason. Earlier this year, to celebrate Australlia Day, 13 McDonald's franchises in Australia temporarily changed their signs to reflect their Australian nickname.


In the same way that in American urban areas McDonald's is called "Mickey D's", it seems that in Australia, fast food fans call McDonald's "Macca's".

That's funny, because "Macca" is also former Beatle Paul McCartney's nickname. John Lennon can be heard calling him "Macca" on one track of the Beatles Anthology album. But, Paul McCartney is famously a vegetarian, so I wonder if he knows about this, and if so, how he feels about having his name in big letters outside burger joints all over Australia?

Hm... Maybe it's called Macca's because he used to eat there a lot in the sixties, and maybe because of all those preservatives in the burgers, Paul really is dead the way the rumors said he was.
