A photo purporting to be a slab of frozen McRib "meat" is taking the internet by storm. The popular seasonal offering from McDonald's is usually seen in its fully-prepared state, slathered with barbeque sauce, onions and pickles on a hoagie roll.

That image bears very little resemblance to the industrialized-looking, pale white hunk of frozen technology in the photo making the rounds now.
Seeing fast food in its natural state really drives the point home that it is far from natural.

Do you think someone over at Nabisco said, "Geez, you know, I just don't think Americans are quite fat enough. Sure, everyone talks about an obesity epidemic, but it's really not THAT bad yet. We need to do something to really kick things up a notch if we want to create a pandemic of obesity in the world."
And thus, the Mega Stuff Oreo was born.
Seriously, though: they're 90 calories per cookie. So you're looking at 360 calories in that photo right there, with 36 grams of sugar--that's the equivalent of 9 teaspoons, three more than in a typical 12-oz can of regular soda.
