…doesn't decompose again

"The Internet's collective colon was in a knot over recent reports of a McDonald's fare that allegedly failed to decompose after 20 years, but McDonald's maintains that its food like any other food would decompose "in the right environment."

"But, in order to decompose, you need certain conditions specifically moisture. Without sufficient moisture either in the food itself or the environment bacteria and mold may not grow and therefore, decomposition is unlikely," McDonald's wrote in a media statement issued on Monday.

"So if food is or becomes dry enough, it is unlikely to grow mold or bacteria or decompose," the company added. "Food prepared at home that is left to dehydrate could see similar results. Look closely, the burgers you are seeing are likely dried out and dehydrated, and by no means 'the same as the day they were purchased.'"…"

I've seen some fries that have fallen between the seats of the car that look like they could be eaten, months or years afterwards.

Fortunately, I don't care for cold fries, or ones that have small bits of hair, dirt, dust, and other detritus on them.

In a related episode, my friends in college nailed the famously nasty hamburger from the food service to their wall. It didn't decompose or mold, or anything. It stayed there and dried out. It became an art piece.

But those fries taste so good when fresh and hot.

Well the cockroaches will need something to eat after WWIII.

I can imagine the automated girl's voice at the Skurry-Thru:

"Would you like Fallout with that?"
