McDonald's Happy Meal Resists Decomposition

A picture of a McDonalds Happy Meal exposed sitting outside is making the Internet rounds, and definitely shows something very wrong with our food [particularly fast food]. After I found out about the Silly Putty Chicken McNuggets, that was enough to make my stomach hurt.

Vladimir Lenin, King Tut and the McDonald's Happy Meal: What do they all have in common? A shocking resistance to Mother Nature's cycle of decomposition and biodegradability, apparently.

That's the disturbing point brought home by the latest project of New York City-based artist and photographer Sally Davies, who bought a McDonald's Happy Meal back in April and left it out in her kitchen to see how well it would hold up over time.

The results? "The only change that I can see is that it has become hard as a rock," Davies told the U.K. Daily Mail.

I was thinking about this, even if this lady has an apartment with a humidity of 10% [impossible during humid New York City summers even with air conditioning, how come no flies or bugs even came to pick at the burger?
