Foodie Friday: Beefy Buns

It’s apparently football season, and McDonalds is getting into the spirit. But you know what they say; “one man’s football is another man’s offal”. Don’t you think this burger bun looks a little familiar?

Maybe they should’ve called it The Renaldo Burger…

Edit 16/06/2014: Biologist on the Edge clued us in; the unusual colour of this kidney is due to amyloid accumulation, making it look yellow and pale and about as appetising as a certain fast food restaurant…

  1. I’ve never necropsied a cow before but the kidney sure looks pale in color compared to other animals. Not being a vet I would refer to a large animal vet for a diagnosis 😉 but the pale color definitely would clue me in that something was wrong.
