When McDonald’s French Fries Are Used As Weapons

Yes, McDonald’s French fries are very dangerous in the sense that you could inhale a super-sized order in the blink of an eye. But also, they can be physically dangerous, as demonstrated by a woman in Bordeaux who was seriously injured by one of the delicious potato wedges. Let this be a cautionary tale.

It started as most fast food kerfuffles do; with hungry people and slow customer service. An unidentified, angry patron tried to launch a French fry, missile style, at a McDonald’s employee. Presumably as a signal for the McDonald’s staff to get going on the Big Macs? But the aim was off, and instead of pelting the employee with a potato torpedo, it hit a female diner in the eye. The woman was rushed to the hospital with a scratched cornea and told to stay home from work for the next 10 days. Police are still trying to track down the French fry assailant. I guess this is what our parents meant when they told us not to play with our food.[Cybergazing]

See How Your French Fries Are Aging

Fart In A Jar
An open letter to the girl who sold her fart on Ebay. Read More »

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 many variables are unknown to make any sort of call.” Fry guy goes on to say, “If anything, I’d be more afraid of the KFC fries because this indicates they might have been contaminated with bacteria or mold or were improperly cooked.” But wait, does the lack of mold fur on the Mickey D’s batch mean that there was some kind of crazy synthetic chemical that they’re treated with? Never mind. I don’t want to know. It doesn’t matter. I’m never eating fast food French fries again. [The Daily What]

Quotable: Fergie Pretends French Fries Are “Poison”

“I’m not going to lie: There are times I play mind tricks on myself, like that the French fries are poison. With desserts, I’ll let myself have just one bite, but I’ll look like a freak when I’m eating it, like when I did Duncan Hines commercials as a kid, just savoring every morsel.”

Waffle Fries, No Deep Fryer Required

Waffle fries are the holy grail of French fries for me, and it’s not always easy to find them when I have a craving (or they’re so weighed down with grease they’re soggy — ugh). Luckily, I came across Alexia FoodsCrunchy Snacks Waffle Fries at the grocery today. They don’t need fried or cooked, and their texture is a cross between a fry and a chip; mostly crispy, but soft on the inside. The hot pepper flavor is spicy and delicious, and everyone in The Frisky office wanted to steal them from me. While the fries aren’t exactly health food, they are all natural with no artificial preservatives, flavoring, or coloring. So, now I have access to my beloved waffle fries wherever I want, which will be awesome provided I don’t overdo it — I still have three more flavors to try. Keep reading »
