McDonald's Meal shows no sign of decomposing after SIX MONTHS Print

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.

Happy Meal 1
Fresh: The Happy Meal on the day it was bought by artist Sally Davies in New York
 
Happy Meal 2
Tasty: Looking a little dry and with an 'acrylic sheen', but the burger has no signs of mould - not even on the bun

Sitting on a shelf in her apartment, Sally has watched the Happy Meal with increasing shock and even her dogs have resisted the urge to try and steal a free tasty snack.

'I bought the meal on April 10 of this year and brought it home with the express intention of leaving it out to see how it fared,' she said. 'I chose McDonald's because it was nearest to my house, but the project could have been about any other of the myriad of fast food joints in New York. 'The first thing that struck me on day two of the experiment was that it no longer emitted any smell. 'And then the second point of note was that on the second day, my dogs stopped circling the shelf it was sitting on trying to see what was up there.' Expecting the food to begin moulding after a few days, Mrs Davies' surprise turned to shock as the fries and burger still had not shown any signs of decomposition after two weeks.
 
When asked if their food was not biodegradable, McDonald's spokeswoman Danya Proud said: 'This is nothing more than an outlandish claim and is completely false.'
