Everything about the food at McDonald's is fast — it's made fast, cooked fast, and usually consumed fast — except for one thing: the rate at which it decomposes.
How on Earth do we know that? Well, a woman named Jennifer Lovdahl posted photos on Facebook claiming to show a six-year-old McDonald's Happy Meal — and it's pretty disturbing. Not because it's become a furry, moldy mess inhabited by creepy-crawlies, but because nothing has really changed.
The internet, of course, has gone berserk. The post has been shared over 280,000 times. But is the fury warranted?
The photos show four chicken nuggets, an order of slightly shriveled french fries, and an accompanying receipt dated January 8, 2010. And they look like they could have been ordered yesterday.
