15. Tumor In The Chicken Sandwich
Tumor In The Chicken Sandwich
Whether it was the version where the mayonnaise was pus, or the actual tumor was in there — it’s fake. The photos are also either fake, or of other stuff — like fat. A chicken is chopped and butchered, and any tumor would be immediately discovered. It’s never happened and never will happen. It’s physically impossible.. It can be made innovative in this manner to get a little impressive just the way auto trading robot does.Check my source to know more. The auto trading robot can trade on our behalf. It is completely interactive and comfortable for novice users. Smart activities take a good twist on the positive side.
14. Finger In Wendy’s Chili
Finger In Wendy’s Chili
Did Anna Ayala find a finger in her Wendy’s chili in 2005? Yes. Did they sell it to her like that? No. As it turns out, the finger was tested and didn’t match the prints or DNA of any employees. It made sense since they were all in possession of 10 fingers apiece. It turns out the finger was from one of Ayala’s husband’s co workers who had lost it in a work accident. She put it there to scam Wendy’s and ended up in the slammer for it.
13. Arby’s Roast Beef Is Made From A Gel
Arby’s Roast Beef Is Made From A Gel
In a classic “making face value assumptions” story, people keep reporting they see roast beef being made from a gel at Arby’s. While it’s true their roast beef does arrive in a bag, it’s still beef. The gel story comes from the fact that it arrives while marinating. The “gel” is actually the brine that marinates the roast beef before it’s sliced — which is a standard deli meat thing.
12. Semen Burger
This is one of those old urban legends that’s always “heard from that one guy” and never in a newspaper or news report. The dead giveaway is that the “victim” is always a woman. Fortunately, there has never been any recorded case anywhere in the US of anyone ever finding any semen in their food. Ever. Anywhere.
11. Girl Eats Taco Bell And Has Roach Eggs Infest Her Throat
Girl Eats Taco Bell And Has Roach Eggs Infest Her Throat
Most urban legends can get knocked down from a little research and logic. As the story goes, a girl had odd swelling in her throat. It turns out she had Taco Bell and apparently a pregnant roach was in there who laid eggs in her gums. Of course the babies were living in her throat. The problem is that roaches carry eggs in a sac, not lay them. Also, chewing kills roaches. Not only that, but there’s no record of it ever happening.
10. KFC Can’t Call It “Chicken” Because They Serve Mutant Chickens
KFC Can’t Call It “Chicken” Because They Serve Mutant Chickens
When Kentucky Fried Chicken became “KFC” it was because they’re no longer allowed to call their GMO chickens “chicken”, right? Wrong. They changed it to de-emphasize the word “fried” and to allow them to vary the menu (they’ve since switched back). They buy regular chickens from regular chicken farms, and even after the “KFC” name change, they used the word “chicken” all the time.
9. Tim Hortons Adds Nicotine To Their Coffee
Tim Hortons Adds Nicotine To Their Coffee
The beloved Canadian donut and coffee chain is only eclipsed by Starbucks when it comes to dedicated fans. People have passed the legend around that it’s because they add nicotine to their coffee to make it addictive. Both the Canadian and American food oversight agencies have given Tim Horton’s the thumbs up (or “Tu vas bien” in Quebec) and declared them nicotine free. Your café et des beignes are safe.
8. McDonald’s Is Making Big Mac Baby Food
McDonald’s Is Making Big Mac Baby Food
No matter what the all-caps Facebook posts say, nobody saw these on any grocery shelves anywhere. They also never saw them at McDonald’s. Because it doesn’t exist. A bad satire site called ‘Freaking News’ held a “What If McDonald’s Ruled The World” Photoshop contest, and this was an entry. It is not a thing and never will be.
7. Venomous Snakes In A Burger King Ball Pit
Venomous Snakes In A Burger King Ball Pit
As the story goes, a kid was bit by a rattlesnake that was hiding in a Burger King ball pit and died. There’s no reason for your kids to go all Samuel L (I am sick of these mf’ing snakes in this mf’ing ball pit…) because it never happened. That’s literally the last place a rattlesnake would hide, because shocker, rattlesnakes hate people. Kids too. This has never happened, and only existed in your chain emails and bad movie prequel ideas.
6. KFC Served A Rat
KFC Served A Rat
It looks like a rat, so it must be a rat? That’s not always true since this is totally not a rat. Devorise Dixon is a guy from Watts, CA who posted this photo and said KFC served him a rat. Facebook did a Facebook and freaked out. KFC, to their credit, played it cool and found the second angle of the “rat”, showing that it was white meat chicken. It was unfortunately shaped chicken, but nonetheless chicken.
5. Bubba Conroy Spits In White People’s Burgers
Bubba Conroy Spits In White People’s Burgers
That tweet is fake. It made its way around the internet and people lost their minds. This is one more thing we can all blame on 4chan, because that’s who did it. It was part of an elaborate prank that wasn’t very funny. Bubba Conroy is not a real person and was never employed by McDonald’s or on Twitter.
4. McDonald’s Uses Worms In Beef
McDonald’s Uses Worms In Beef
This is not a new rumor and has plagued McDonald’s since the 1970s. Recently, a fake news site used this photo of ground tenderloin with bits of frozen butter in it — a mix that makes a darn tasty burger. McDonald’s doesn’t use worms (or any other filler for that matter), and founder Ray A. Kroc summed it up perfectly in an interview once, saying “We couldn’t afford to grind worms into our meat. Hamburger costs a dollar and a half a pound, and night crawlers six dollars.”
3. Chinese Restaurant Gets Caught Taking Delivery Of Rats
Chinese Restaurant Gets Caught Taking Delivery Of Rats
One of the oldest fast food horror stories of all time popped up recently, with this image and the accompanying story. As the urban legend goes, these are rats that were delivered to an Atlanta Chinese take out spot. The photos are actually of rats being sold online to snake owners (which happens), and there’s never been any record of this ever happening anywhere.
2. McDonald’s Charges Black Customers More (Because Robberies)
McDonald’s Charges Black Customers More (Because Robberies)
It’s amazing how easily the internet brings out casual racism. “Saw it on Facebook — seems legit” people say. McDonald’s did not and never will allow a franchise to pull this stunt. The photo was faked and released as a prank. Also, the phone number was the KFC customer service number. So, there’s that.
1. Ketchup Dispensers Have HIV Infected Blood In Them
Ketchup Dispensers Have HIV Infected Blood In Them
It’s always interesting when a government agency has to step in and say “Please stop sharing this.” The story that an HIV+ employee has been spiking the ketchup dispensers with their own blood — all kinds of fake. The CDC repeats over and over that not only were there no reports of this, but that HIV can’t live outside the human body and that transmission through food is nearly impossible. Pump the ketchup freely, you’re safe.
