Immortal McHorror burger is 12 years old, looks just like new

Karen Hanrahan has been using the same McDonald's hamburger as a prop in her "Healthy Choices for Children" class since 1996 -- 12 years! -- and it's hardly aged a day in all that time

That is horrifying. Good thing I'm not a fan of McDonald's...although to be fair, a Burger King hamburger would probably be exactly the same. Hey, I don't eat Burger King hamburgers! Score!

In other news...'Tom's%20Diner'%20can%20be%20told

Turns out Suzanne Vega is just as compelling a storyteller in prose as she is in song. Courtesy of the New York Times, here's her essay on the fascinating history of her 1987 song "Tom's Diner," from her composition of the tune in the Upper West Side eatery it later helped make famous

I, uh, didn't think anyone was actually waiting for this story to be told but....I guess it's a good story.
