This picture is a photo of a McDonald's Happy Meal taken on the day of its purchase. A writer at blog BabyBites -- a site about transforming picky eaters -- decided to see if the rumor she'd heard that a Happy Meal will last for years was actually true.
So she bought a Happy Meal on March 3, 2009, stuck it on her desk at work, and waited. A whole year. Guess what happened?
Like, practically nothing. Maybe a smidge of withering, but no mold. No decomposition. Not so much a whiff of grody. Yikes! It's the same Happy Meal a year later to the day, and the follow-up blog post can be read here. Screw Botox, age-fearing ladies. Just eat Happy Meals!
