I just found this amusing:

Wendy’s cares! Ha ha. Has anyone else ever run into this problem with impenetrable croutons? I’m not exactly sure what they’ll be able to do about it. Tougher forks? Softer croutons? Maybe I’ll get a free Frosty? Will they start handing out sporks? What about a metal Wendy’s fork that I can carry with me at all times? I guess the possibilities are endless.
On a weird side-note… Zemanta picked up my photo as a suggested image from Flickr. How crazy is that?

I WILL FIND THE DROIDS I'M LOOKING FOR
This is a genius little work of art/humor. I decided to use it to try out flickr’s “Blog this photo” function. I wouldn’t mind having this printed, framed, & hung on my “home office” wall. Good stuff, Laser Bread!
Heard about this on the radio, saw the link to this article on Yahoo! this morning. Creepy:
McDonald’s Happy Meal resists decomposition for six months
Not that this is really all that surprising or life-changing… just makes you pause to think about the absurdity of it all.
From an art perspective, this is very fun & funny. From an experimental perspective, this needs a little more control. I’d like to see the meal left to sit still in between photographs, and perhaps even from a camera that sits on a tripod in the same spot every time.
I’d also like to see meals from other chains like Burger King, Wendy’s, Steak N’ Shake, as well as a home-made patty cooked from fresh ground beef… and even a store-bought pre-made hamburger patty. Hell, why not even throw a Morning Star Farms or Boca veggie patty in there too?
You can follow the project directly on Flickr here: Davies McDonalds Happy Meal Project
I find the comments from Theresa Riley at McDonald’s to be the most absurd part. “Completely unsubstantiated?” Have you seen the photos?
Also, Dr. Michael Doyle going on record saying “no hamburger would look like this after one year unless it was tampered with or held frozen” is kind of goofy. Has he done this experiment? Does he know for sure?
I do have to say that environment has a lot to do with it. The fate of the burger & fries may be markedly different in an apartment in Florida vs. one in Alaska or Arizona… and then is there heat, A/C, or other environmental control going on in that apartment?
I’d love to see this as a Mythbusters episode.
I’m posting to everything via email thanks to Posterous… just checking it out to see what it’s all about. Apparently, you can throw anything at it via email attachments, and it deals with it on its own… and I’ve set it up to post to Twitter, tumblr, Facebook, WordPress, YouTube, and Flickr on its own.It’s really easy. all I’m looking for is some consolidation. I’d ask for MySpace support if anyone used that any more… but Photobucket support would be cool… as well as importing UrbanSpoon reviews – although, that may be there and I just haven’t found it yet.
Perhaps this out to be the way that Fast Food Fail is handled?
I’m going to attach some totally unrelated stuff, just to see what happens with it.
I wonder if it handles formatted text better than WordPress?
It will apparently even embed video from YouTube if you just provide the URL…
…and all kinds of other crazy stuff.
