Thanks to you are about to know what your body will go through during the hour after consuming a Bic Mac.

If you think your body will run like a well-greased machine, you will be sorely disappointed.

For some reason, YouTuber Matt Stonie thought it would be interesting to deep fry a McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish sandwich eight times and then eat it.

The process is revealed in the video after the jump, which shows the steps of batter, fry, repeat over and over again until the result looked something like a football on a bun. He then ate layers of pure fried batter, made his way to the tiny fish core, and continued until there was nothing left.

Viewers will no doubt find his thin frame just as surprising as his ability to stomach this thing.

international peace day mcwhopper

We all know that Burger King and McDonald’s have been bitter rivals for decades. The Big Mac vs. Whopper debate is just one of many in the battle known as the “Burger Wars”.

Surprisingly, Burger King extended an olive branch to their competitor and suggested they call a cease fire and work together to sell a McWhopper hybrid burger. It would be available for one-day-only in honor of Peace One Day, a nonprofit group that works to raise awareness of the International Day of Peace.

BK set up a fantastic website with the proposal at and took out full-page ads in both the New York Times and Chicago Tribune with an open letter to McDonald’s. Honestly, it’s pretty amazing and all McDonald’s would need to do is say “yes.”

Unfortunately, it turns out that giving peace with BK a chance isn’t what Mickey D’s had in mind.

We can only assume McDonald’s employee Garrett either really needs money (he does work at McDonald’s after all), or really needs attention – because he was willing to lick a grease trap for $5. As if that wasn’t enough, he did it twice.

That’s a whopping $2.50 per lick. I wouldn’t lick a grease trap for anything under $50. I have standards.

Watch the grossness after the jump.

minion toy

McDonald’s is under fire for its new Minion Happy Meal toy which appears to say “What the f*ck?!” whenever it’s turned on and tapped. So what the f*ck happened? The fast food chain responded by saying that “Minions speak ‘Minionese,’ which is a random combination of languages and nonsense words.”

McDonald’s also told THR that the Caveman Minion is actually saying: “para la bukay,” “hahaha,” and “eh eh.”

Check out the NSFW demonstration after the jump and decide for yourself.

McDonald’s is struggling financially, but their packaging design game is strong. Back in May they debuted a takeout bag that turns into a serving tray, and now they’ve developed a takeout container that’s designed specifically for cyclists.

Created by ad agency Tribal Buenos Aires in Argentina, the “McBike” container can be transported on the handlebars of a bike, and it can securely hold a burger, drink and fries.

The McBike debuted in Copenhagen, Denmark, and then it popped up in Medellin, Colombia. The next step, apparently, is to introduce the container to cities that are known for being bike friendly (like Amsterdam and Tokyo). While I haven’t actually seen a cyclist pop into a McDonalds drive-thru before, it seems as though McDonald’s is starting to encourage the idea. Maybe we’ll see it in Portland sometime soon.

The problem with getting a bag of food from McDonald’s is finding a way to eat it without making a mess. Sometimes it involves hastily arranged napkins on your desk or balancing food in your lap, so McDonald’s Hungary and agency DDB Budapest have tackled the problem with a brilliant new bag design.

The bottom is made from reinforced cardboard with a tearaway strip so the whole thing can serve as a tray. It’s big enough and sturdy enough to hold a large-sized meal without collapsing. Clever!

McDonald’s has introduced a Create Your Taste menu that allows you to make exactly the kind of burger that you want to eat. There’s kiosk where you make all of your selections, so of course someone had to see just how big a burger they could build. You start with an “artisanal bun” and two quarter pound patties, then add:

10 slices of sharp white cheese
10 slices of pepper jack cheese
10 pieces of bacon
10x pickles
10x red onions
10x guacamole
10x tortilla strips
10x lettuce
10x tomatoes
10x jalapenos
10x grilled onions
10x grilled mushrooms
with 10x mac special sauce, 10x mayo, 5x spicy mayo, 10x sweet BBQ sauce, 10x creamy garlic sauce, 10x mustard, 10x ketchup

Moshe Tamssot built this monster which he calls “The Big Max”. He also ordered fries and a Diet Coke. It all came to just under $25 and weighed almost 4 pounds.

mcdonalds breakfast

Starting in April, several McDonald’s locations in San Diego will finally give customers all-day access to the breakfast menu.

In a company statement to the Chicago Tribune, McDonald’s notes:

“We know our customers love McDonald’s breakfast and they tell us they’d like to enjoy it beyond the morning hours. So next month, we will begin testing all-day breakfast at select restaurants in the San Diego area. We look forward to learning from this test, and it’s premature to speculate on any outcomes.”

McDonald’s has avoided the all-day breakfast option in the past noting a lack of shelf and grill space as the main factors. However, the move makes sense given the fact that breakfast accounts for 25 percent of the company’s sales, and a recent National Restaurant Association survey pointed out that roughly 70 percent of Americans want to dine on breakfast dishes around-the-clock.

Those two factors, combined with the company’s recent struggles, may have finally given McDonald’s the push it needed.

These McDonald’s french fry gloves will have you nibbling your fingers. They were designed by ad agency Moroch and sadly don’t appear to be for sale (until someone on Etsy gets wind of this anyway). So, you’ll have to console yourself with a trip out for dinner to get the real thing tonight.
