Man says Hamburger Bought at Fast Food Giant never Rotted

A man in Utah has undertaken an experiment over the past several years in what he describes as fun. He bought a McDonald’s hamburger in 1999 and says it is still looking like it did when purchased.

His plan was to save the burger for a month and then display it. “At the little meeting, I showed the hamburger and the pickle, which was just starting to disintegrate,” Whipple writes. “There was no decomposition to the meat or bun, nor any mold, fungus or smell.

Late Saturday evening I decided to surprise my husband Otto with some homemade ice cream; his appetite has been suffering since his surgery and long sojourn in the hospital, so I thought a creamy delight might be just what the doctor ordered. Within a few minutes, the mixture ripened in the refrigerator, while I retrieved the churn from the freezer, where it resides during the summer months. I quickly assembled the modern contraption, poured the mixture in the Freon-filled chamber, plugged it into the electrical socket, and in a flash, the frozen dessert was churning toward completion. Bless the convenience of modern-day appliances; I do not want to live without them. Back in the good ole days before you could produce a freezer full of homemade ice cream you first had to acquire an enormous bag of crushed […]
