HUFFPOST – Reddit user LinkBoyJT posted an image Wednesday that might make your skin crawl. After ordering a McDonald’s hash brown and eating most of it, he says he was startled to find what he claims was a deep-fried insect stuck to the bottom half. The text accompanying the image — which is pretty gross, by the way — reads “I was eating a hash brown from McDonald’s on the way home when I felt something on the bottom… ” The user doesn’t disclose what type of insect it is, but it appears to be some sort of cockroach or moth. Late Wednesday night, he posted an update: “I took the thing and showed it to the manager and she marked my receipt so I could get the same meal for free the next time I come in for breakfast. She didn’t really seem all that concerned.”
“She really didn’t seem all that concerned.” Really? No shit LinkBoyJT. You think the manager at McDonalds gives two shits about you finding the bug from Men In Black in your breakfast? Already that day she’s had to deal with kids screaming in the ball pit, her 2nd GED failure notice and avoiding getting stabbed by a homeless man taking a shit in the urinal. She’s got bigger fish to fry, let alone something as minuscule as a little insect in some food. Obviously it isn’t the worst thing she’s seen in the food at her work. Just last week she found a pigs head in a batch of lettuce and caught her recently paroled coworker teabagging the Shamrock Shakes just so he can sport some green nuts before rubbing one out in the deepfryer. Little bug ain’t nothing in her eyes. Eat the thing or throw it away and shut up. Damn insect has 10x more nutritional value than anything else on the dollar menu anyways.
