This Taco Bell tattoo is amazing for many reasons. The whimsical cursive font. The colorful star border. The flirty placement on the right shoulder. But I must admit I’m worried about the ramifications of such a permanent ode to a fast food joint. I mean, what if one day she succumbs to the salty sire…

Pizza, For Those Who Want It All

See How Your French Fries Are Aging

In a completely unofficial and gross experiment, one brave (or bored?) Redditor put McDonald’s and KFC fries in airtight jars for three years just to see how they would age. Well, no doubt Mickey D’s fries have better genes. Or do they? The French fry researcher points out that “this test is meaningless [because] too…
