It probably seemed like a good idea at the time. Norwegian teenager Stian Ytterdahl of Lørenskog, Norway was challenged by his friends to get a tattoo of Barbie on his butt or this McDonald’s receipt on his arm. Apparently it was as some kind of punishment for getting a little too busy with the ladies (which we highly doubt). Ytterdahl decided the receipt was the better option of the two.

Once they were finished with the tattoo, Sabelink Tattoo asked if he’d be willing to get a copy of their receipt for doing the tattoo on his other arm and Ytterdahl said yes. He’ll be getting that one done next Monday.

“Now I’m a living billboard,” Ytterdahl told the newspaper Romereskes Blad, “But I think all this is just fun. Maybe it won’t be as fun when I’m 50 or 60 years, but it’s my choice.”

Taco Bell is getting crafty in targeting McDonald’s with their latest ad campaign for their breakfast menu. They’ve even got Ronald McDonald saying how much he loves their food. Technically, they’ve got many Ronald McDonalds saying how much they love their food, but not a single one is a clown. How’d they do it? They managed to find a whole bunch of real folks named after the famous clown and got them all together to say how much they love Taco Bell. Your move, McDonald’s.

It looks like a McDonald’s meal with a burger, fries and a delicious shake, but it’s actually made out of nothing but cookies by the sister of @987akka who clearly knows her way around a chocolate chip cookie.

McDonald’s is the official king of the fast-food breakfast realm, and it looks like they’re hoping to capitalize on that by extending breakfast hours. Their reason for doing so is not exactly surprising. It seems that the company’s target demographic, millennials, aren’t too big on getting up early. Jeff Stratton, head of McDonald’s USA, told the Associated Press, “We know, as an example, that breakfast on the weekend cut off at 10:30 doesn’t go very well.”

The AP notes that while there are some logistical challenges with offering both lunch and breakfast options at a similar time, the chain is working hard to keep up-to-date with the ever-changing eating habits of its customers.

“Well, we’re just beginning. … We’re just taking a look at it,” says Stratton. In order for the extended hours to be a sure thing, the company needs their more than 14,000 franchisees in the U.S. to hop on board.

Remember when you were a kid and your arms could barely grab the tray from the counter at McDonald’s? One McDonald’s in Lima, Peru is hoping to make you feel like a kid again by installing a huge counter that forces adults to reach way up to pay their bill and grab their food. Now, if they’ll just bring back those cheesy plastic hand-puppets, it’d be perfect!

Food always looks so good in commercials. The burgers are juicy. The fries are crispy. The buns are nice and fluffy. Yeah, in the real world that just isn’t how things look. This video takes clips from actual McDonald’s commercials and then pairs them up with matching real life shots of the same foods. I think I’ll just eat in tonight.

At some point on your wanderings around the internet, you’ve probably seen the infamous picture of pink slime. Many are concerned that McDonald’s continues to use the goop in their chicken products, like Chicken McNuggets. According to McDonald’s Canada, this is simply not true. To answer consumers’ repeated questions and to provide transparency, they’ve released a video in which Supply Chain Manager Nicoletta Stefou takes viewers through a tour of a factory that makes Chicken McNuggets. You can see for yourself what’s in the products.

The natural reaction may be to call bs on McDonald’s, but as someone who has worked in manufacturing, it would take an insane amount of effort and money to fabricate a faux manufacturing plant and methods.
