This wonderful piece of photography not only shows off how the marketers and engineers at Sony still can't design camera's for individuals with hooves, but what you see before you is a miracle of modern-day food engineering. This McDonalds' cheeseburger is more than 5 years old!
No, really. It belongs to a friend of the yak, who like all good birthday boys felt the urge to indulge in culinary delicacy in the early hours of his birthmorn. The incredible desire to sleep overwhelmed him, and he forgot about (some of) his burgers. The following morning, he did what all good students do, and scoffed the lot. But one remained hidden in the uncharted recesses of his bedroom. Only to be discovered by our underpaid and abused slave Doris in the week.
What else do you do with such a discovery but give it a place of honour. And so, it was given a small shrine, and still exists. And it's fine. Just a bit crunchy. But I doubt there's anything wrong with it that a microwave and a bit of tabasco can't fix.
Of course, the option of putting it up on E-bay and having Goldenpalace.com buy it for gazillions has crossed our minds. But some things are bigger than money. Bigger than the fame, and the prestige. Plus, having it around has kinda helped the waistline. Magical properties, I tells ya.
