YUMMY: A McDonald's Cheeseburger In Hydrochloric Acid

August 1, 2014


This is a video of a McDonald's cheeseburger (no word on with or without onions) being dipped in hydrochloric acid. Hydrochloric acid is formed in the stomach and makes up about 0.5% of food-dissolving gastric acid. The other 99.5%? Tiny warriors with swords and axes chopping the food into smaller and smaller pieces. Plus, sometimes, a puke wizard.

"As you're watching me, churning away in your stomach is acid which is one of the first stages in which food is broken down into usable components to give you energy or to make you fat," our favorite Einstein-look-a-like Martyn Poliakoff, a chemist at the university, says in the video.

You know what else I have in my stomach? "Penises?" GOOD ONE. I was going to say a sausage, egg and cheese biscuit. Plus a daily vitamin, a cup of chocolate milk, and a cup of coffee. "And?" That's it. "AND?" Fine, and two six-packs of those little powdered donuts. "And?" A Snickers bar. "AND?" "Another, king-size Snickers bar." "And?" A Snickers ice cream bar. "That it?" And a couple LEGO bricks.

Keep going for the delicious video.

Thanks to GrizzlyDave, who may or may not be a bear (in my mind he totally is though because it would be cool to have a bear reader).

    "No! We can still win!"

    So this is what happens when you swallow a cheeseburger whole...

    Nah, most of the work is done by enzimes and muscular contractions. I don't understand why people insist on ignoring this part.

    Hey GW, I've been an avid reader for years. However, I just started reading Sploid, and I realise- holy crap your site blatantly rips off their content! At least have the decency to give some credit or something man.

  • GreyMatter

    Have you noticed who he credits at the bottom? It is from contibutors and I have contributed myself(a bacon article). This is called the internet where new things appear and people share links ! Where do Sploid get their links from? Other websites of course!

    One more thing...GW is humorous...Sploid is not!

    I didn't read off of that but yeah Geekologie Writer is pretty humorous. I've been here since, well for a while... and this site caught my eye through the usually legitimately interesting "not just trending" content and someone talented behind the posts.
