Looking almost as fresh as the day it was bought, this McDonald's Happy Meal is in fact a staggering six months old.
Photographed every day for the past half a year by Manhattan artist Sally Davies the kids meal of fries and burger is without a hint of mould or decay.
In a work entitled The Happy Meal Project, Mrs Davies, 54, has charted the seemingly indestructible fast food meals progress as it refuses to yield to the forces of nature.
One of the comments under this article was doubt that this study was real, well it is one study that is easily replicated. Take the McDonald's challenge, pick up a plain burger happy meal, put it in a place that will not be disturbed, and photograph it over a six month period. Place a piece of paper next to the dish with the day number on it, before you photograph. -- kdtroxel
