This Is McDonald’s New Hamburglar… No, Really

McDonalds-Hamburglar-Close-Up-Shot-Two-1

At first glance, the above photo appears to be nothing more than a typical office drone dressing up for his company’s mandatory Halloween party. The truth however, is much different… and much much more sad.

The masked half-shaven gentlemen is actually McDonald’s new Hamburglar… you read that correctly. Gone is the chubby, single-toothed burger thief of our youth. He’s been replaced with a square-jawed, trench-coated metrosexual, who looks as though he only eats burgers that are grass-fed organic.

The introduction of the new mascot comes as McDonald’s sales plummet nationwide. And, we all know what happens when McDonald’s introduces a new mascot to peddle its foodstuffs… it winds up scaring the shit out of everyone.

The Big Max Is The Largest Burger You Can Create At McDonald’s “Create Your Taste” Kiosk

mcds-menu

McDonald’s recently unleashed the “Create Your Taste” kiosk, which allows the Mickey D’s customer to get creative and build their own burger. The problem with this concept, besides that the end result is McDonald’s, is that eventually someone is going to take liberties with the service.

The Big Max, brought to us by Moshe Tamssot, is what happens when you push the Create Your Taste kiosk to its limits. With the option to “10x” almost every ingredient, you too can create a foot-high, four-pound monstrosity. Just prepare to have a fast food manager hate you.

Quick stat sheet…

  • 10 slices of American cheese
  • 10 slices of sharp white cheese

A Frog Burger Because Japan

frog-burger

We know what you’re thinking… There’s no way those are actual frog legs sticking out of that black-bunned burger. Well then, you obviously haven’t been paying attention to our extensive coverage of Japan, where anything is possible, and its usually bat-shit cray-cray.

The Frog Burger is oh so very real, and is indeed an actual frog, with its deep-fried legs sticking out from the bun. If nothing else, the protruding legs are a very good and disturbing reminder of what you’re eating.

The Frog Burger is part of museum Orbi Yokohama‘s promotion for their Deadly Poison Exhibition. Hopefully, the non-toxic variety were used for the burgers.

This Seemingly Brand New McDonald’s Cheeseburger Is Actually Twenty Years Old

twenty-year-old-burger

Whether or not you like to eat McDonald’s food items, you cannot deny their resiliency and seemingly infinite shelf-life. Evidenced in the recent photo seen above, this Quarter Pounder with cheese was actually purchased in 1995.

The story goes that two friends from Adelaide, Australia purchased the burger in ’95 for a friend. After the friend did not claim the burger, the two decided to keep it indefinitely. Fast forward to 2015, and the cheeseburger not only still exists, but it appears as though it was just bought.

We assume that these two friends are just experienced embalmers or sorcerers of some kind. Or, perhaps McDonald’s resiliency to outside elements is just that terrifying.
