1. So here’s a cool story that’s slowly been making its way around the internet:
2. The gist of it is: 31-year-old Lisa McDowell found an abnormal clump of mayonnaise in the McChicken Sandwich served to her at her local McDonald’s in Michigan.
^ Inordinate amount of “mayonnaise” photoshopped into McChicken Sandwich by BuzzFeed’s Matt Bellassai.
3. And, from her own life experiences, she recognized the texture as being that of semen.
“On Birthdays and holidays I give my man a little something extra in the bedroom, you know? So when I licked the mayo off of the bun, the texture was familiar,” she reportedly said.
5. Reports continue:
McDowell immediately called over the manager who denied the allegations, so she contacted the local health department.They sent the “mayo” remains off for testing and the results were positive for 2 different types of semen.
The manager confirmed that two employees were fired as a result of her allegations and the positive semen test results. The manager of the McDonald’s also added, “We can’t always keep an eye on our employee’s conduct. We can only hope, during the interview process, that we are able to hire employees that meet our companies standards.”
6. Sure, it sounds absurd but people totally believe it. When you search “McDonalds semen” on Twitter, the first thing you see is a Dominos ad…
7. But THEN you see a lottttttttt of very concerned citizens from around the world:
12. We ourselves weren’t so quick to buy the story, so we did some sophisticated investigative reporting:
15. A McDonald’s spokesperson told BuzzFeed in an email: “We have no record of any such claim at McDonald’s.”
18. Oh, well. Some people had the right idea all along:
- Trump may have initially blamed Democrats for Friday's failed health care bill but it took only 2 days for him to start blaming Republicans, too.
- A vandal allegedly smashed glass, overturned benches, and tossed a Bible inside a Colorado mosque early Sunday morning.
- United Airlines stopped 3 girls from flying because they were wearing leggings. The rule applies to travelers on "company benefit travel."
- "Orange Is The New Black" actor Samira Wiley and writer Lauren Morelli officially tied the knot in Palm Springs 🌴
