A man from Illinois found a strange thing in his bathroom wall as he planned to renovate it. As he smelled fast food in his bathroom, he looked around for its source and surprisingly found a 60-year old McDonald’s meal hidden in his bathroom wall.
He first posted the incident about finding the 60-year old meal on Reddit. Rob, who found the half-eaten French fries and the meal ‘wrapped in an old rag’, was gobsmacked by this discovery.
The post on Reddit has now gained hundreds of comments, and Rob is replying to users commenting on the incident. He also said that he was thankful he did not find anything more sinister than a packet of half-eaten French fries.
Another user commented on Rob’s reddit post that he had also found a meal dating back to 2001, but Rob is now the winner of finding the ‘oldest McD in the wall’, as he congratulated Rob.
Rob also said that he was sure that the meal had been there since 1959, when the house was first constructed. He was also amazed by how crispy the French fries were still.
Other Reddit users joked about the discovery and said they too needed to look around their house walls in search of an even older McDonalds meal. Others were wary of the discovery and asked him if any recent renovations were done to the bathroom, to which Rob said that there have been no recent renovations there, and the pack of fries was found stuck behind the original plaster of the bathroom walls.
He also said that his home was near to one of the original McDonald’s places in Crystal Lake. Another cool coincidence about the incident is the fact that the first McDonald's outlet to open its door in Crystal Lake was 1959, which is the same year Rob’s house was constructed.
