"Listen, and understand. That Big Mac is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead."

accomplished only part of the battle. McDonald's customers aren't exactly misled by a menu of fattening foods loaded with sodium and cholesterol. Nobody's staring into Ronald's painted mug, expecting a full day's allotment of vitamins and minerals, and taken aback when they've put on a couple extra pounds. That type of surprise is relegated to smokers, not snackers.

But when customers enter a McDonald's -- knowing they're signing up for stabbing abdominal pains and crippling depression in an hour's time -- they probably aren't expecting to ingest a litany of preservatives that defy the laws of biology.

After reading about the impervious 12-year-old McDonald's burger, photographer and vegetarian Sally Davies decided to conduct her own experiment in her own home. She purchased a McDonald's hamburger with a side of fries, left it on her coffee table uncovered, and waited. And waited. And waited. Logging the progress through photographs, Davies looked for any sign of mold or decomposition. After 180 days -- a full six months -- she's still waiting.

Here's Davies talking about the unfeeling nanomorph mimetic poly-alloy assassin on Good Morning America:


As for any indication of age, Davies noted, "The meat patty shrank a lot as it dried out and... That's kind of it. It really hasn't changed."

In response to the story, McDonald's released a statement.

"It is not possible to provide a detailed explanation re: these claims without knowing the conditions in which these food items were kept. With stringent procedures for handling and storage, we work hard to minimize any exposure that would contribute to the presence of mold, bacteria, or other microorganisms."

And if that entails dunking each bit of food into a mason jar full of bleach prior to serving, so be it.
