Most burgers look the same after you've digested them.

Most McD's burgers look the same before and after you've digested them.

Probably tastes about the same too, perhaps a little bit better

Most McD's burgers look the same before and after you've digested them.

And after you've excreted them as well.

Apart from what has already been noted, they must put a heck of a lot of preservatives in them if they look the same after 14 years!

I bet the customers don't look the same after eating them for 14 months, far less fourteen years. :yuk:

Anyone remember this :

Super Size Me is a 2004 American documentary film directed by and starring Morgan Spurlock, an American independent filmmaker. Spurlock's film follows a 30-day period from February 1 to March 2, 2003 during which he ate only McDonald's food. The film documents this lifestyle's drastic effect on Spurlock's physical and psychological well-being, and explores the fast food industry's corporate influence, including how it encourages poor nutrition for its own profit.

Spurlock ate at McDonald's restaurants three times per day, eating every item on the chain's menu at least once. Spurlock consumed an average of 20.92 megajoules or 5,000 kcal (the equivalent of 9.26 Big Macs) per day during the experiment.

As a result, the then-32-year-old Spurlock gained 24 lbs. (11.1 kg), a 13% body mass increase, a cholesterol level of 230, and experienced mood swings, sexual dysfunction, and fat accumulation in his liver. It took Spurlock fourteen months to lose the weight gained from his experiment using a vegan diet supervised by his future wife, a chef who specializes in gourmet vegan dishes.

Probably the reason their burgers are known as "mystery meat".
