Is There a Ketchup Holder Built Into Your Fry Box?
The jury is out, but it’s an interesting idea.
Has the flap on your McDonald’s French fry box been keeping a secret from you all these years?
A Twitter account called Today Years Old (@todayyearsoldig) appears to be dedicated to trying to blow your mind with things you maybe never realized … until just now.
Some of the feed’s revelations are kind of “duh”: You know the swoop under the IHOP logo turns the name into a smiley face, right?
Some are kind of “huh”: Is it deliberate that there’s a Hershey Kiss hidden in the negative space between the letters on the Hershey Kisses logo?
Some are definitely “nuh-uh”: There’s no way the sunglass holder in your car is “actually a taco holder.” Because … yuck.
But one of the site’s posts seems to have sparked a widespread, “WHA?!”: the startling assertion that the flap on a McDonald’s fry box actually doubles as a ketchup holder. (Just fold back the back flap of the box and squeeze the contents of your ketchup packet right on it – voila, ready for dipping.)
“Cool idea!” wrote one commenter.
“Oh Wow... I had no idea,” responded another.
But some commenters were less receptive to the idea.
One suggested the “purpose” of such a hack might actually be “To accidentally catapult ketchup all over your nice clean shirt?”
Another skeptic offered this quip: “Tried it myself and discovered this too; if you hold the box upside down, facing the light, close to your ear, bend the flap slowly and you will distinctly - Paul is the walrus.”
One in every crowd.
