Is there poo in a Big Mac and other burning issues

You can't request more than 20 captcha challenges without solving them. Your previous captcha challenges were flushed.

The 26500+ McDonalds fast food burger-muck "restaurants" and their ilk do have something of a dubious reputation, including issues regarding food quality, unhealthiness, environmental concerns, employee exploitation and so on, despite many a corporatey ad-campaign to try and persuade us that all that happens on a typical day in a restaurant is that pretty girls go in for a salad - and probably not the McD's chicken salad that was actually more fattening than their cheeseburger.

Of course McDonalds likes to claim that this is mostly undeserved. To show their deep, deep love for you, the consumer, they have taken the - in many ways admirable - step of setting up an interactive website so you can "so that you can find out anything you'd like to know about McDonald's food, business, people and practices." Send in your questions, and McDonalds will answer them. All the answers are pointless corporate schmooze of course, but the Poorhouse had literal LOLs occurring simply be reading some of the ones that made it to be published.

Credit to McDonalds then for not going overboard on the censorship. It almost makes up for the repetitive answers. Really you should explore away yourself, but here's a few Poorhouse-selected highlights shown by the great evil Satan corporate machine. If you ever wanted to find out the answers to any of these burning questions, click on over to their site (or, to save you time, imagine the word "no" repeated 100 times).

To be fair, following Fast Food Nation revelations, some of the questions aren't as ridiculous as they might seem, but nonetheless they are pretty damn funny - as long as you're not considering eating anything McDonalds is making.
