Subway Sandwich Bread to No Longer Contain Chemical Found in Yoga Mats

Subway has been feeding us yoga mats. Well, to be specific: The bread at the sandwich chain’s American locations carries a chemical that is also found in yoga mats and sneaker soles for elasticity.

Everyone Hates McDonald's, and McDonald's Probably Hates You Too

The list of America's most hated companies is out and McDonald's is at the top. The company's public struggle with worker wage protests and penchant for paying just enough to put keep their employees below the poverty line hasn't worked out so well.

RIP Mighty Wings: A Look Back at the Greatest Fast Food Failures

A Horse Walks Into a McDonald's… And Shits on the Floor

A woman in Manchester, UK, tried to order at the drive-thru window at McDonald's, but was denied. The problem? She was on horseback. Clearly in the midst of a Big Mac Attack (so hungry she could eat a horse?), the woman was undeterred: She decided to enter the restaurant and order at the counter.

McDonald's Wants Millennials' Money. Here's How They Get It.

Oh, dear. McDonald's — that small roadside fast food joint founded by brothers Richard and Maurice McDonald in the 1940s — is in danger of losing money because we sassy, CSA-joining millennials are no longer interested in what the chain has to offer.

McDonalds's Apple Slices Recalled Because They're Crawling with Disease

Neat! Remember when everyone went gaga about calories and health and so all the fast food chains scrambled to invent some hella gross wilty cheese-covered "salads" and gave kids the option of having apples and walnuts instead of fries with their 8,000-calorie cheeseburgers?

McDonald’s Swears It’s a Perfectly Healthy Olympic Sponsor
