In an amazing display of patience and self-restraint, Jennifer Lovdahl reportedly kept a Happy Meal from McDonald's intact for six whole years.

It's been 6 years since I bought this "Happy Meal" at McDonald's. It's been sitting at our office this whole time and has not rotted, molded, or decomposed at all!!! It smells only of cardboard. We did this experiment to show our patients how unhealthy this "food" is. Especially for our growing children!! There are so many chemicals in this food! Choose real food! Apples, bananas, carrots, celery....those are real fast food.

"The receipt has disintegrated more than the food," Sarah Guyer Krug commented. April​ Arno chimed in with her own tale of preserving a McDonald's meal and said "the bag actually started decomposing before the food did." Not all comments were negative, though. "I'll be there in a minute... With BBQ sauce!" Aaron Hunter wrote.

Great minds order alike.
